Question i am different shades...why? and HELP~!

Quick question… I never see UV rays unless I am standing in the booth.

my torso is darker than below the waist. I purchased the strongest (in terms of dark) tanning lotion I could find: Black (20x) by Designer Skin to even out my color

I spray my legs with water (H2o) during my sessions in addition to the lotion application… my torso is bare (no lotion, water, moisturizer , etc...) however, it is the darkest and holds color the longest.

Any tips as to evening out my color? i have this problem with my face also. thanks, i appreciate it.

Your torso will always tan easier and darker then the rest of your body because your organs are located there. Better circulation = better tan.

Your legs are hard because you shave them (assuming you're female), and every time you shave, you pull off a layer of skin, and in that skin is your tan.

So, #1, stop using water, it does nothing, and is dangerous to do around all that electicity.
#2 Shave before you go tanning, use lotion only (no water) on your legs, leave it on for a couple of hours after your session.
#3 Make sure you're NOT using any products at home (lotions, soaps, etc)that contain either mineral oil, or petroleum in the ingredients.

I agree. Everyone tans faster and darker on their stomach, and legs and face are the hardest to tan. I would only add to use a facial bronzer and/or leg bronzer to help even them out. You could also try a tingle on your legs to help, just do not use it on your face.
