Beauty Advice Needed

I almost never wear sleeveless tops, and most of my life I’ve been wearing only short sleeve ones. So now I have a bit of a problem. I even took a pic to show you, although it is really more noticeable in real life:


My arms are two-toned!! As you can see, my shoulder is lighter than my elbow. Since my arms will be shown the day of the wedding, I’m wondering if there is something I can do”¦obviously I can try to get a tan, but how do I tan only one arm? Is it possible?

And since I’m already asking for arm advice, lately I’ve noticed some tiny bumps all over the upper part of my arm. I’ve tried exfoliation, but it doesn’t seems to make much of a difference”¦any suggestions?

Thanks in advance, fellow sleevless-wedding-dress-wearing-bees!

    I agree with PP’s, it’s not really noticeable, but if you want to even it out, gradual tanning lotion could work. You just risk streakiness if you don’t do it perfectly, and like a spray tan, it’ll likely rub off on your dress a little bit. I wouldn’t worry about it, honestly, but I know, easier said than done!

    I also have bumps, so thanks @kaepo1: for the expert advice!

    It’s not a huge difference, but I understand that if you notice it, it’ll both you. Maybe a tinted moisturizer would be best thing. Not too much colour, but enough to even everything out.

    I think if you are able to get a little color on your skin, it will even out, either from a spray tan or the sun.

    @kaepo1: Thank you so much for the tip! Do you happen to know the active ingredient? Since I live in Mexico it will probably be hard for me to find it by name 🙂

    @ilikeballet: Oh, thanks! This is really helpful!

    @MissCoffeeBean: Thanks! These are great tips, I will definitely have a trial before the wedding!

    @Mrs. Wallaby: You have a good point! I don’t want to end up looking orangey or not like me :s

    @Yellow.Clover: I’ve never used spray tan! Is it hard to use? I think I will try it to see how it looks!

    @Bribaby119: Those bumps really are annoying, uggh! 🙁

    @Damaris: Thanks for the tips, gradual lotion sound better than spray tan to me! I’m a bit scared of spray tan.

    @Miss Filly: You are so sweet! Oh, I will try to get one of that washcloths. Do you also use it on your face?

    @melizabe: Perhaps you are right, but the two tones have always bothered me…but as you say, maybe no one will notice, and besides, the wedding will be at night, so it will be dark.

    @Nia: How often do you use the scrub?

    @misspaperbee: I think you are right, maybe when the big day comes I won’t care anymore!

    @Blonde17Jess: @pocketfox: Thanks to both of you…. I’m beginning to think no one will notice 🙂

    @Miss Pyramid: Thanks Miss Pyramid! Perhaps I will try a tanning lotion or a little spray tan… 🙂
