    Default self tanner or spray tan to blend pinkness

    Hello,

    Has anyone experienced any success with self tanners? My skin is quite fair and I would like to get some color. I have some mild pinkness and I think it would look better if my face wasn't as pale.

    Will the self tanner help cover the pinkness or with it turn the pink more red? Would spray tan work?

    Any ideas? Also, can anyone recommend a self tanner that works well and doesn't irritate their skin?

    Thanks so much!

    Hello:
    I have used self-tanner on my face and had a spray tan. They both worked quite well. The only problem is that you are supposed to exfoliate before using them, which is HORRIBLE for rosacea. I now skip the exfoliation and put a small amount of self-tanning gel on my face from time to time. It works for me.
    Regards

    Thanks, Queta, that is helpful. Exfoliation doesn't seem to bother me so maybe I will try exfoliating before. Thanks again and glad that it works for you!
