Tips & Tricks
1. Before you apply your sunless tanner it’s a good idea to exfoliate your skin. You can do this in the shower and it will help make your tan more even when applied.
2.Use a mitt! This will help you from streaking and also keep your hands from looking discolored. If you do not own a mitt, washing your hands after applying will help them from having harsh lines.
3.After applying your sunless tanner, wait a few minutes before putting your clothes on. You want to make sure your skin is dry so you don’t streak!
4.When its time to wash your tan off or you notice it is becoming uneven, exfoliating again is always a good idea to get your skin back to an even tone.
Hope these tips help you enjoy a safe and beautiful tan!
