Don’t pop pimples. Doing so can lead to additional irritation and leave scarring. Instead use a spot treatment with benzoyl peroxide.
I am a habitual sunless tanner. Whether I do it myself at home or go for a ‘Mystic’ at my nearest salon, I always like to stay somewhat tan. The only problem with this form of tanning is that after a week or so it starts to fade, leaving my skin looking splotchy, streaky and dry. I’ve even been told it looks like I have “lizard legs” a week after a sunless tanning session.
My first thought to counter this unfortunate side effect was to intensely moisturize every day, but that only took care of my dry outer layer. The coloring was too deep into my inner layers of skin to be aided by a topical moisturizer.
My next bright idea was to exfoliate in order to make the tan appear more even. This option gave me a glimpse of hope because it did somewhat deliver my desired result. But after using a harsh exfoliator on my body every day my skin became sensitive and raw.
That’s when I switched to ME! Bath Papaya Nectar Shower Sherbet in hopes of finding a gentler way to exfoliate. This sugar scrub did a great job evening out my fading tan and smelled fruity and tropical to boot. Not to mention, the creative ice cream carton packaging is reason alone to buy this product. I now use this product even when I don’t have an uneven tan, just because of how much I love it!
