Using fake tan is the best way to get that summer glow without damaging your skin with harsh uv rays. Whether you are getting a spray tan or applying it yourself, it is extremely important to prepare your skin prior to the application. Following these simple steps will enhance your tan and give you long lasting results.
Exfoliate: Focus on the areas where you have rough skin including your knees, ankles and elbows. Dry areas absorb the tanning solution faster resulting in an uneven look. This step is extremely important to create an even tan. Use an exfoliating glove to help you remove any dry skin which will help you receive an even application.
Shave/Wax 24 Hours Prior: Whether you are getting a spray tan or applying it yourself, it is always best to wax or shave 24 hours prior. This will avoid your skin being too sensitive or reactive to any tanning formula.
Avoid: On the day of your tan, avoid using deodorants, moisturisers, perfume or makeup. Keep your skin free of all products, as they will hinder your results.
