You Will Need
- Exfoliating body wash with sugar
- Moisturizer with gradual tanner
- Self-tanning lotion, gel, or spray
Exfoliate with a body wash that contains sugar, which gently sloughs off the top layer of dead skin. You'll get more of an even glow.
Moisturize your entire body to rid yourself of dry spots that soak up more pigment. Using a moisturizer with a gradual tanner with give your tanning lotion a more natural look.
Choose your tanner
Choose a self-tanning lotion for medium color, a self-tanning gel for a dark shade, or an aerosol spray for the darkest hue.
Start at the bottom
Start with your feet and legs to avoid bending over later and creating weird lines. Apply in a circular motion to avoid streaks. If using an aerosol, hold the can two feet away from your body, moving constantly as you spray.
Get your back
Get your back by putting lotion in the center of a three-foot piece of plastic wrap and rubbing across your back like you would with a towel. Or spray aerosol into the air and step into it backwards and repeat.
Wash your hands immediately to avoid tell-tale tanned palms. Once you're finished, your color will look like you earned it at the beach!
