2. Start At Your Feet

For optimal results, always start from the feet and work upwards when applying a self-tan. This avoids any creasing and streaks that may occur when bending down to reach lower areas once tan has been applied. For a seamless application, always apply with a mitt.

Tanning Tips For When You’re Doing it at Home

We all have areas of our body we want to hide away when we hit the beach or slip into that somewhat revealing dress.

Up the anti by contouring your body with different shades of self-tan.

Applying a self tan all over will certainly help disguise blemishes and even cover cellulite while giving you an all-over glow, but the right product, applied to the right body part, can enhance certain features and distract attention from others.

There are some great tutorials online so we won’t go into full details here, but think enhancement of cleavage, legs, buttocks, arms, the halo area of your face, and your stomach. The idea is to build coverage and add highlights to the areas your want to conceal or enhance, making your body look slimmer and more toned.
