Let’s not pretend self tanning isn’t an experience that can be fraught with accidents, mistakes and vital life lessons.
The point is to learn, grow and start investing in a good self tanner that won’t leave you looking weird, orange and streaky.
To help you out, we’ve put together a list of the top 10 self tanners for an easy, natural-looking tan, along with a few tips and tricks that will help you get there.
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.
