Hey, well I think the best thing to do, is tan with no creams or lotions and your freckles will join together and make a more even and darker tan. This is better because once your freckles are joined together, they never really un- join. How ever for them to be fully joined together you need to go on a lot. I have been going on a lot recently, and they are getting there! I was fed up with avoiding and hiding my freckles that now I actually want them to make me a darker tan! And join together.
Everytime I get off a sun bed I look straight in the mirror at the progress, and also get excited. I carnt wait until they join up. That way ill be tanned and natural! Becayuse the only real reason I wear makeup is to cover them up.
So anyway take my advise you can't use lotions for the rest of your life! Join them together its easier!
