It is August which means everyone is grabbing as much beach time as they can before heading back to school or just being sucked into the cold routine of fall. I have already preached about sunscreen enough times this summer (and of course suggested my personal favorite natural sunscreen brands: Burt's Bees and Coola). But I know that sometimes tanlines are impossible to avoid. A common bad habit is to try to minimize stark tanlines by heading out in the sun again, which of course damages and ages your skin.
Instead of baking and re-baking yourself to try to even everything out before the first day back at school or work, try The Tannee. This is not a "green" product, but may be a skin-saver if you are tempted to head back into the sun. The Tannee is a tan-line correcter that you simply smooth onto the un-tanned parts of your skin and blend into the tan parts. It evens out lines without causing you to become a prune in ten years! I recently tried a sample, and was impressed by the un-streaky results, but I plan to use the product very sparingly because I want to avoid tan/sunburn lines entirely!
