Due to meds, sun damage and Lyme disease/coinfections, my legs are very spotted. I cannot go in the sun to tan anymore, I cannot wear self tanner, it enhances the spots. Has anyone used any type of leg cover up that looks natural and easy to apply. Would also prefer something that doesnt test on animals and organic or at least non toxic. Thx!

When you say self tanners enhance the spots, what do you mean exactly? There is leg makeup, such as Covermark Leg Magic. I know Covermark is a really good product, I wonder if this could help you or if it would also enhance the spots.

Try a can on Sally Hansen's spray-on leg makeup. It comes in light, medium and dark, and does a pretty good job of blending in discolorations. Warning -- it's a beyotch to clean the residue off the tub.

I'll check it out. Maybe there are ratings I can read. I used self tanner spray for a few years, now if I use it the spots are much darker, the tanner doesnt blend with color of skin. So I look even worse!

Well now, that doesnt help much, ha...I want to wear dresses/shorts outside without scaring anyone. I've been bedridden over two years and just finally getting remission so wanting to get out!!! The bronzer/tanner is what I mentioned won't work. It doesnt cover up spots, it enhances them.

It's been years since I used the Sally Hansen spray. I don't remember much rubbing on, maybe a little on the harder-to-cover bits. Mostly, just spray. BTW, I always did it standing in the tub to avoid the overspray getting on other stuff.

It comes in a cream now. It is waterproof, so it doesn't float off in the pool. If you don't soap it off your legs, it will last two days. I bathe and shave closely in the morning, then dry and apply. Then I take a shower the next night. Pretty handy during bikini weather.

Have you lost your flippin mind? Why in the world would you risk exposure to the sun with ALL that you have been thru. How about purchasing some nice extremely lightweight pants (as in the kind you see at the beach), long sundresses, etc. and forget the risk of sun exposure.

I've found tanning lotions to enhance any freckles or sun spots on my legs (I'm older). As suggested above, Sally Hansen leg makeup works very well (covers any imperfections). I didn't know about the cream. With the spray, I would spray it on my hand and then smooth it over my legs. Best to wash off in the shower, but will last for a couple days even with showering, if you don't shave or try to rub it off.

Please read posts before making comments. No one said anything about sitting in the sun. I can't sit in the sun but is it ok if I leave the house? I live in SC and it's hot as hell and I'm having hot flashes, so I'd like to wear what makes me comfortable. Jeesh
