The gel to get rid of the "white spots from tanning" is called Halt. You can pick it up in almost in tanning salon. I used it when I got out of the shower, and in 3 days, with continued tanning, the white spots from tanning were gone. Thanks God I found this product, because I was starting to lose my tan. :)
Ive always had white spots,
and im pretty weird with my tanning habits.
once i start tanning i over do it..
and then i dont tan at all for months.
but these white spots have NEVER gone away.
theyre all over my stomach and arms.
you said halt works?
does it make you lose your tan?
or just darken the white spots?
I cannot confirm anything without examination,but it sounds like pityriasis versicolor.The white patches of pityraisis don’t tan on sun exposure. It is a common skin infection caused by the yeast Malassezia furfur. This skin disease commonly affects adolescents and young adults, especially in warm and humid climates.
Treatment involves topical and oral antifungal medicines.
I would suggest an examination by a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Warm regards.
