Fake Tanning Tips - 2
Make sure to moisturise any dry areas, such as hands, elbows, knees and feet before tanning.
Fake Tanning Tips - 3
Different tans work for different people. Whether it’s a fast-acting fake tanning mousse, nourishing fake tanning oil or gradual fake tanning lotion make sure you find the right one that works for you! 
Fake Tanning Tips - 4
Always use a good quality velour fake tan mitt or glove to apply your fake tan. Make sure it’s lined to avoid tan seeping through to hands.

Buff in any excess product with the clean side of your fake tanning mitt.
