Getting beautiful beach-bronzed color doesn't mean you have to spend every weekend poolside or traveling to the shore! Follow our expert guide to get your best sunless tan, from start to finish no matter the season.
Prepare in advance
It's important to complete all your beautifying steps like shaving, waxing, manicures and hair treatments before you start your self-tanning process since many of the the ingredients found in these steps can affect your tanning results.
Exfoliate your body
By exfoliating from head-to-toe, you remove dead skin and create a smooth, even surface so your self-tanning products will apply evenly without blotching or smearing.
If streaks or splotches appear after you've finished applying, rub half a lemon on the area for two minutes then lightly buff with a damp towel.
Make it last
Prolong your tan by avoiding exfoliating products, retinols and acne treatments as they can fade the color. Instead, use gentle cleansers and when you’re ready to refresh your skin's glow, exfoliate and start again.
