Getting tan in the summer is what most people like during those warm, sultry mid-year days. Being tan is also a fashion statement of sorts, a way of letting society know that you are attractive. While I may not necessarily agree with that line of thinking—I definitely think one can be attractive without a perfectly bronze colored tan—many do think that way, and having a tan, especially during the summer. Most people probably tan in their bathing suits most of the time; however, tanning in your bathing suit does give you tan lines. If you don't like the look of a tan line, then you might want to get rid of them. Here's how!
The darker your tan, the more stark your tan lines are bound to be. The starker your tan lines, the harder your tan lines will be to make disappear. If your tan lines are light enough, you can probably use a sunless tanner to fill in the less tan spots; you'll want to do some testing to make sure that the tanner matches your actual tan. This method, however, isn't the best way to get rid of your tan lines, because it could end up looking pretty tacky.
Probably the best way to fully get rid of your tan lines is to, well, not tan with anything on. Avoid the lines by eliminating the possibility of lines. This may be a little awkward, but if you tan using a tanning bed, you can eliminate any potential awkwardness with tanning in the nude. By tanning topless, you definitely get rid of minor tan lines and eliminate the potential for tan lines at all. This can be uncomfortable, however, regardless of how you tan, and so there is another alternative.
Depending on what you wear and where your tan lines are, you can dress so people can see your tan without seeing your tan lines. This is simply done by wearing clothes that cover the tan lines. Dressing to cover tan lines may require some heightened fashion skill, but it is possible. Unfortunately, there are only a couple of ways to get rid of your tan lines, and if you don't want to deal with any of these options, you can just learn to live with your tan lines—think of them as part of your summertime fashion statement!
