How should I choose a self-tanner?
There are many different kinds of self-tanners, start by picking one that’s easiest for you to apply and get the color you are trying to achieve. Most have a light to medium or medium to dark option, so pick yours according to your natural tone and how dark you want to be in the end.
How should I prep my body for application?
It’s very important that you exfoliate your body thoroughly, and don’t have on any lotion, perfume, makeup or deodorant that may create a barrier between the product and your skin.
Any application tips?
Spend enough time making sure you apply evenly all over, and circular motions seem to be the most effective in spreading it evenly.
What is the most common self-tanning mistake?
Applying the product unevenly is common, as well as streaking and forgetting to wash your hands to avoid orange palms.
