I was perusing a beauty site when I came across a fantastic tip/idea that had never before occurred to me. I have I guess what you would call pigmentation or freckles that faded and became pigmentation over a period of time. I have always worn sunscreen since I was old enough to know how to take care of my skin and still believe it to be the best protection and better than any anti ageing creams- I wear it everday. I think woman’s beauty care need not be expensive. I’ve had huge costs this year and have tightened my belt down to the things I use on my skin etc. I read on this site that you could use facial fake tan on your face and it helps to reduce the amount of foundation and concealer you use. Well I’m of fair complexion and decided to use an existing gradual build up tanner I had. I must say it has worked wonders and has reduced the amount of foundation and concealer I wear to only very minimal. I also used to have trouble because my face had pigmentation and my neck was very pale, so matching a foundation colour was an issue without getting tide marks or a “mask” appearance. I just blend the gradual build up tan right down to my d├ęcolletage. It was a cream that would have sat in the cupboard had I not found this great beauty tip. I’m going to go ahead and use more tips from this site. I like to economise and found this to a great tip. I just thought Id share this with anyone else wanting to even out their complexion on a budget and wear minimal make up.

  • May try this now myself. Have had drastic changes in my skin pigmentation and tone since a health problem. Never used make up prior and find it very heavy on skin used to nothing. Thanks for the tip.

  • I haven’t used fake tans for years, so I no longer know which ones are good, and which aren’t. I love the sound of trying this, but I’d appreciate anyone’s recommendations for products to use.

  • Thanks for the great article. Was wondering though, if you could put the details of the beauty web site up, if that ok with you. cheers cherz.


    • beautyheaven Cherz. I only visit irregularly but find some great articles. There are some things that are oriented towards brands and other articles that are just fantastic tips that I would never have thought about.

  • Thanks, this is a great tip. I currently use a Colour Correction cream, that I buy for $14.99 :)


    • If the colour correction cream is a green based one to counteract redness, even though it’s expensive I would highly recommend the Napolean Perdis Camera finish powder in G3 (Fair Lady). I’ve seen it on a variety of skin colours and it truly counteracts due to the slight green pigment that is not noticeable when applied. I wear it, as I got given one and it has lasted me forever. It can be used alone or on top of foundation or bb creams etc. I hadn’t found a lot of powders that I liked until I wore this one as most gave a drying, cakey/flakey look but this doesn’t and is ultra smooth.

  • I haven’t used fake tan on my face, but this might be worth a try. I always look healthier with a bit of a tan but try not to tan my face these days.
