Using a self-tanner? Keep in mind, certain skincare ingredients and in-office treatments can alter the intended color of your tanner, leaving you with less-than-desirable results.
Anything that bleaches, fades or lightens the skin, like hydroquinone, can cause the treated areas to become light while the rest of the skin looks tan. The same goes for chemical peels, laser resurfacing treatments, and microdermabrasion.
Your best bet is to wait until your skin is fully healed before using a self-tanner; otherwise, you can end up with uneven results.
