Tips for the perfect flawless fake tan!

If you want to protect yourself from the harmful effects of the sun (i.e., wrinkles, brown spots, or, worse, skin cancer), the only safe glow is one that comes from a bottle.Nowadays we have new tanning formulations that dry quickly, show up instantly, and can be washed off in as little as an hour, so why not to rock sexy bronzed skin all year long ?


Below you will find all the tips and tricks necessary for the perfect self-tan application.

1. The most important step in getting the perfect fake tan is exfoliation ! You don't want to apply fake tan on dead skin, that will be a disaster for sure. Always prepare your skin and start with exfoliation in the shower, be sure you removed all the dead skin cells that get in the way of your even tan application. Pay extra attention to really dry spots like your elbows and knees.
2.Don't apply fake tan products on fresh shaved/waxed legs, as your skin will become sensitized and it can reactivate to the tanning formulation, also don't shave/wax your legs after you applied your tan.
