What am I going to do?

It didn't look too bad yesterday but there are parts of me that look positively horrible today

Has anyone got any advice to get rid of some of the colour? I only wanted a healthy glow

You can get tan corrector wipes

Or just exfoliate LOADS

Don't know if I can get to a big enough chemist to get the wipes.

What do I do with the lemon?

whitening toothpaste on really bad bits and a good scrub with a mixture of olive oild and salt in a hot bath will do it.Any stubborn bits mail varnish remover but not good for your skin so be careful!

"salt, lemon juice and loofah - scrub, scrub, scrub. "

this reminds me of my sister's wedding when i had my hair done (and dyed dark brown) the day before.
oh, and an inch all round my hairline, including most of my forehead, and ears.
i had to drape artfully - thank goodness i had long hair.
it was a boiling hot august day.
no up-do for me. grin
hope you aren't too fluorescent tomorrow!

Go swimming. The chlorine always manages to strip mine!

right, lemon juice, salt and olive oil and a not bath.

swimming, now that's idea, would a hot tub do the same? my friend has one and I'm going round to hers tonight

Not unless she puts chlorine in her hot tub....
