Red skin

This is merely cosmetic, but for a long time I thought I had a permanent farmer's tan on my forearm. I spent like...4 years in my room, never leaving. i didn't have a job, didn't have school, so I never left, I merely lived on my computer. Through this, my farmer's tan didn't go away. Never saw the sun, and it still didn't go away.

Well anyway, to correct this, I tried to get a tan(I like my skin being more pale, but that's not going to happen I guess). Since I don't want to sit out in the sun, I tried the tanning cream. Well after I did this, I noticed my arms still weren't the same pigment(i didn't use the cream on them). And now that I notice it, my arms are pink, not tanned. It's like they're permanently sunburnt.

I'm wanting to stop using the tanning cream, as it never worked out well. There will be uneven tones, and worse, streaks going up my legs, no matter how much I rub or what direction I rub. Also, this only lasts a week, and I have to buy a new bottle like every two weeks.

So my question is, is there anyway to fix the sunburnt look on my arms?
