Before hopping in the shower, brush your body in upward strokes all over with a loofah to aid circulation and even out skin tone – your tan will be way more even if you do. Never apply tan on top of another product – it should be the first layer on your skin. Avoid applying spray deodorants and perfume underneath and on top of your tan, too. Patting on a face-tanning oil will give you a healthy glow and won’t dry out your complexion. Just remember to blend at your jawline – oils are more pigmented than they appear!
“IF YOU MAKE A MISTAKE, USE SOMETHING ACIDIC – LIKE LEMON JUICE OR A GLYCOLIC SCRUB – TO LIFT AWAY THE TAN.” – MICHAEL BROWN, ST. TROPEZ SKIN-FINISHING EXPERT
