Need answer quick, evening out my tan.

I'm gonna head to the tanning salon in a few hours. Does anyone have any tips for evening out my cycling tan? I'm doing the stage II (i figure I spend enough time in the sun to skip the stage I tan) tan for the next 3 days. Do I just slather on spf 200 onto the parts I don't want tanned (arms, legs, etc) and go in?

Dunno. I usually just lie out on my deck with only the tanned areas covered with towels, sippin' beer and listenin' to music. <shrug>

Grab off a piece of duct tape about 10 inches long and cover the important part[s]!

Everyone else is thinking it, I'm just gonna say it.
A better way would be to have a 1 piece skin suit with the boobs and crotch cut out.

That's why you tan that way but normally walk around in a bikini. Get with the program!
