So, how do I get rid of self tanner streaks and get it to blend in seamlessly?

An age old question... and definitely the most common one when it comes to perfecting a fake tan. 

Generally, we’d recommended that you exfoliate beforehand and make sure you get rid of any dry patches the self tanner might cling to. 

Then, when applying self tanner, make sure you always buff the product in properly (preferably with a tanning mitt), using small, circular motions. Read the directions closely, because depending on the formula this may vary.

If you do end up with any unpleasant streaks, you can correct them by taking a hot shower, and using an exfoliating mitt like the Eco Tan Tan Remover Glove, or a chemical exfoliant, like Glycolic acid to buff the streaks away. 

We highly recommend The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution or the Alpha-H Liquid Gold Resurfacing Body Cloths

What about applying self tanner to my hands and feet?

If you’re still feeling concerned about how to blend self tanner on your feet, or how to get self tanner off your hands, it’s probably because these areas are the most tricky to perfect.

That’s because these areas are the driest and therefore the most absorbent. The skin just soaks it up.

So, after exfoliating these areas, the next step is to make sure they are really well hydrated with one of our best body lotions for dry skin

Try to do your hands and feet last, using only a small amount of product on these areas. A flat brush like the Coco & Eve Deluxe Vegan Kabuki Brush makes blending these difficult areas easy, making sure application is light.

One more tip: make sure to wipe your nails and cuticles so it doesn’t stain and look scary.
