If you’re like me and love having a tan all-year-round, then this is the perfect tutorial for you! Here I share all my tips and tricks to achieve the perfect fake tan.
STEP 1: SCRUB
Before you begin applying any fake tan, the key to achieving a perfectly even tan is to make sure your skin is smooth. So step one is to scrub, scrub, scrub! This helps get rid of any dead, flaky or dry skin.
step 2: shave
To ensure that you are super smooth, shave any areas that you need to create the perfect base for your fake tan.
step 3: moisturise
Just before you apply fake tan, apply a lightweight moisturiser to knees, elbows and ankles to prevent any build up of tan in those areas.
step 4: tanning
Now you’re ready to get your tan on! Grab your tanning mit and spread the tan in gentle stroking motions, starting at your legs. For your feet and ankles, opt for a lighter gradual tan to make sure your tan looks seamless. Then progress onto your stomach, chest and back. Leaving your hands and neck until last, use the gradual tan again and blend it into the rest of your body. A super handy tip: grab your beauty blender and apply the gradual tan in the areas where you would normally contour your face.
