I have probably tried every sunless tanner on the planet, and being that I have been blessed with porcelain skin most of them turn me a not so flattering shade of orange. There is nothing more embarrassing than walking around looking like a Cheetoh, am I right? Lucky for me (and you) I have done the dirty work for you and found some incredible ways to make your sunless tan look amazing!
Step 1 : EXFOLIATE : Making sure your skin is nice and clean is a must before applying any self tanner. Whether you are applying it yourself or going with a spray tan you absolutely have to exfoliate to get a nice, clean application. My favorite way to get a good scrub is my Posh Snarky bars and right now I am loving the Cactus Makes Perfect because the fresh, clean scent is to die for . If you want something a little less harsh opt for a body polish. It gets the job done and you can also use it to shave, which you will want to do before applying any self tanner as well.
STEP 2 : MOISTURIZE . You want to make sure you rub a nice natural moisturizer over those areas where self tanner tends to pool and sit (Elbows, Knees, Hands and feet). This will help spread it more evenly and keep those areas from turning orange.
STEP 3 : Apply your tanner! Now it's time to apply your tanner. If you are using a personal self tanning lotion make sure you wear gloves or wash your hands immediately after. Make sure you apply evenly so as not to get streaks. You do not want to shower for at least 24 hours after application. Give the color time to develop and set into your skin. Then reapply daily to deepen and maintain your gorgeous color!
