I don't know what to do. I haven't worn a dress or a skirt for the past 2 weeks or used any particular product -yet-, because I thought they would just go away after a couple of days. It's been 2 weeks!

Never had those before.

Oh..and the lines are on my legs. I wear leggings when I play tennis and the mark is right in the middle of my legs. (like between my knee and ankle).

You guys know of any product I could use to make them go away or should I just wait another week??
Should I start to worry??

Nothing to worry about... worry solves nothing.

My tan lines took months to fade.
The best way I got rid of tan lines was to tan the untanned areas.

Like Pitt Chick said, tan the untanned areas. You can either do it with the sun or use a product like Jergens, which would give you some control as to how light or dark.

Exfoliate the area. Shave often. It will help get back to your natural color faster. Blend with a self tanner in the meantime.

See, the problem is I never tan.

I don't need to tan. I'm not white. I'm just a little light skinned and this doesn't usually happen to me. That's why I'm a little freaked out right now.

Oh good grief. Buy some self tanner and use it, if it bothers you that much. I assure you it won't bother anyone else.

Start varying the length of the pants you play in. Leggings today, shorts tomorrow.

Use sunscreen daily. Even people who aren't white have issues with the sun...and skin cancer doesn't care what color you are.

Use a scrub to soften the line. Your skin will feel softer. Try one of those lotions that build a little color as you use them to the lighter parts. Exfoliation will also help lotion and sunscreen's effectiveness.

And don't worry about it. You are likely the only one who notices. If anybody says anything, just laugh and show off your tennis-toned legs!
