I have fair skin in comparison fair as say almost nicole kidman, I am referring to my arms . before i went to get a spray tan I had a couple of red spots on my arms and I thought they were dry patches. So, I put lotion(nuetrogena) on. Since i was spray tanned, where my spots were did not tan ( i mean even though it was sprayed my skin didn't change and now since the tan is disappearing, it looks as if where it was previously red, then white is now pinkish, what could be the cause, reason for that?

No itchiness, no pian n

  • Where you applied the cream your skin was prtected and the tanning spay was not absorbed. Hence th white areas immediately afterwards. As the tan protects your skin to sone extent your spayed skin will tan less than the unsprayed skin so the white areas will become darker.As the artificial tan fades the areas where you originally applied the cream will gave the darkest tan.Don't worry -- enjoy life.
