The weather is heating up and this pale, white as paper girl is ready to get my fake tan on.
I have tried so many self tanners I have lost count. From drugstore to high end. I worked for a while at a tanning salon /spa. I was spoiled at that time using the mystic tanning booth whenever I wanted. The color was always perfect. Brown never orange. Always even and never streaky or uneven.
A huge part of that is the preparation before hand. If you take the time to take care of your skin then the self tanning process will be as smooth as the tan itself.
The Week Of
Hydrate with a heavy duty body lotion, balm or oil.
Get in the habit of putting lotion on every single day. When you get our of the shower is the best time to do this, you will be locking in the moisture from the humidity and steam from the shower.
The Night Before
Repeat above steps.
The Day You Self Tan
Shower, Shave and Exfoliate.
Dry off completely from the shower, do not apply anything to your skin. In order to achieve a even, streak free tan you must have bone dry skin.
Right Before You Tan
Apply a light application of body Butter or a thick lotion to your knees, elbows, cuticles on your hands and toes, ankles and any other dry patches you may have.
Now you are ready to apply your self tanner.
I apply mine at the end of the day and sleep in it. When I take my shower in the morning I am beautifully bronzed and ready to go!
