The Simple 2-Step Guide to Getting Rid of Tan Lines

Now that summer is pretty much over (fall starts tomorrow!), some of us are left with unwanted tan lines. If you’re in the same boat and eager to even out your skin tone, there’s a way to speed up the process without having to wait until next summer.

Here’s what you’ll need:
A good body scrub like the Vanilla & Bergamot Body Butter from Bliss.
You’ll also want a self-tanner like Rodial’s Brazilian Tan Airbrush.


Start by scrubbing the areas you want to even out with your body scrub. This is easiest to do in the shower, but make sure the water isn’t too hot or too cold. You can use a loofah or a washcloth for added scrubbing power, but be careful not to scrub too hard.

When you’re done and your skin is clean and completely dry, lightly mist your tan lines with the tanning spray. Repeat if necessary once skin is dry.
