Would exfoliating make your face paler than your body?

Asked by Shannon

If exfoliating gets rid of the tanned skin on your face, would exfoliating every day make your face paler than the rest of your body?

    Exfoliating can hasten the fading of a tan so if that is a concern, try using a self-tanner to maintain the tan color. Self-tanners used when one is exfoliating regularly work much better and give a more even tan. Also, most people’s faces are tanner than the rest of their body just because their face gets more sun more often.
