There are no secrets to the perfect tan, just things you don’t know yet.
So lets fix that!
AVOID THE TELL TALE PALE PATCHES
Don’t forget to tan behind your ears, essential if you have a pixie cut but even if you love your long wavy locks tumbling down your shoulders, there’s always a time for a ponytail or bun.
AVOID THE TELL TALE DARK PATCHES
The dreaded tanned palms and the tinted soles, they’re an instant giveaway that your tan may not be from that surprising burst of sunshine over the weekend. Use a tanning mitt to protect your hands and wash them as soon as you’re finished.
EXFOLIATION... NO YAWNING
You’ve heard it before, but talking about dark patches, tan lotion or mousse can sink into dry skin, leaving a patchy effect that looks unnatural (and a little lizardy). Slough away those nasty bits, especially on spots like the knees, elbows, ankles, and heels. Use an exfoliator and a tanning primer.
STREAKS BE GONE
Avoid using oil-based products or moisturisers immediately before tanning, they can leave behind residue that causes streaks.
PREGNANCY & MEDICATION
The hormone changes in your body during pregnancy and certain medications can affect any tanning results, so when you call to make an appointment be sure to check if you should go ahead.
TOE TO TOP
Start your tanning at the ankle and work upward, why? To save yourself from any weird marks left from bending over.
If streaks or splotches appear, gently rub a cut lemon on the area for a couple of minutes before lightly buffing it with a damp towel. You’ll smell great and be blotch free.
