Here’s a PSA for anyone who gets spray tans (’tis the season!). The one thing you should never, ever do afterwards is get wet. Not just for an hour or two, we’re talking, like, a whole day. The formula needs time to set into your skin evenly. It doesn’t happen in the amount of time it takes you to watch an episode of RHONY.
This woman shared a selfie on Imgur with the caption “Spray tan tears won’t go away.” Yep, she got her streaky look from crying post spray tan. Some commenters compared the woman’s look to Cinnamon Toast Crunch or what it looks like when you stir coffee. How lovely.
Luckily, there are some nice human souls on the Interwebs who gave this woman advice on how to fix her messed up tan. “Go exfoliate and if needed a little self tanner. Also if you go back in, they might fix it for free,” one former tanning salon employee wrote. Well, at least if this happens to you, now you know what to do!
