I put fake tan on my face before sleep to get a bronzed look for spring – it was a ‘disaster’
HAVING a tan is nice, but one beauty blogger took it a little too far.
Courtney Rose, who shares beauty tips and family content on social media, shared a video showing exactly why you should never put fake tan on your face.
"I decided to put self-tanner on my face last night before I went to sleep," the mom of two said, hiding her face from the camera.
When she revealed her bronzed look, rather than a smooth tan, Courtney's face was covered in dark, blotchy patches.
"This is such a disaster," she said.
Kathryn Watson, a health and wellness expert writing for Healthline, revealed there's a deeper reason why your tanning streaks are more noticeable on your face, and not just because they're in direct placement.
She said that the product absorbs the quickest into thinner skin, which is why your face, hands, and feet get the blotchiest.
And although it might be hard for Courtney to remove the fake tan from her face, it won't be impossible.
Watson advised starting with an exfoliating cream on your face, but to make sure you avoid makeup removing wipes as they can make the streaks look even worse.

For the most effective way of removing the tan, she suggested making a DIY paste.
To make the paste, mix 2 to 3 tablespoons of baking soda with 1/4 cup of coconut oil.
She then said to apply this mixture to your face, let it get absorbed, and then remove any excess with a face cloth.
Watson encouraged applying the mix to your face twice a day until your skin returns to its normal pigment.
