When I was younger, I use to go to a tanning bed. I am naturally very pale and don't spend a lot of time outdoors so I needed something to get me started. Also it was relaxing. Twelve minutes alone with no one to talk to and not having to worry about anything else. But it turns out that's bad for you like most good things so I quit that (also I didn't have any money so there was that.)
Recently (yesterday) I decided to try a self tanner at home. I used a spray mist tanner which seemed to work okay, but then I woke up this morning and that is so not the case. I missed A LOT of areas and now I'm very splotchy and stuck wearing a jacket at work all day today. I had bought some tanning towelettes (which I should have tried first) and this morning rubbed on one of those to try to even things out but I don't know how well it worked. Normally I could just wait it out but I have a funeral tomorrow and I don't want to look insane but I don't know what would be best, trying to lighten it or spraying on the light spots to darken those. I do know that I'm not going to do this again, or at least not use a home spray on tanner. That was a huge mistake. Maybe being pale is just the way to go.
