my body is really tanned; my face is really white. this is because i'm paranoid about the sun and ageing...i read somewhere that if people didn't go in the sun, there would be no market for, i always wear factor 30+ on my face. but i let my body go brown. DH thinks i look a bit daft and I agree with him. So what do i do to make my face match my body? (other than fry it in the sun?) Can anyone recommend a product? tinted moisturiser?

I would say put factor 30 on your body too as skin cancer is more of a worry than wrinkles!

Do you wear protection on the rest of you?

and Olay sunless tanner for the face is good.

i do use suncream on the rest of me, especially abroad, but do like to get a bit of a tan...when i say my body is really tanned, i'm exaggerating. not least cos i have no time for sunbathing...i have a healthy glow from being outside in sports gear, rather than leathery bronzed look from lying around in a bikini..thanks for the suggestion phantom

or rather i'd like to think i have a healthy glow..blush..not flattering myself!

If you wear make up, you could use a darker shade foundation?

i look a bit like this. i do look rather odd naked (hey not just the tan!) but dressed it is ok. maybe you are overthinking this.
