3 Self-Tanning Mistakes to Avoid this Summer

AVOID TANNING MISTAKES THIS SUMMER!

Self-tanning may be safer than the sun, but it can also come with some annoying side-effects like streaky tans and orange feet. Be sure to check out our newest product, the Savvy LBD easy to slip on and off, especially after you've applied self-tanner. Here are 3 tanning mistakes to avoid this summer...

1. Using your hand to apply your self-tanner. Solution: Use a mit applicator. Especially if you're in a hurry, the mit will save you time and help ensure a more even tan. (Mits are included with many brands now including Fake Bake.)


2. Ignoring your skin after your self-tan glow is complete. Solution: Moisturize often. The best way to extend your tan is to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Especially your hands. Often self-tanner can begin to crack and fade (especially in dry climates) within a day. Avoid lotions with a strong fragrance. Self-tan scents can linger after a shower so use a lotion that compliments it. We love the basic Vaseline brand Cocoa Butter with its tropical refreshing scent. Don't forget to continue to use sunscreen - we love Coppertone - if you're out in the sun which still moisturizes and protects your skin from dangerous rays.

3. Applying self-tanner too quickly below the knees. Solution: Don't rush your feet! Your feet and ankle area can streak easily making a bad self-tan a dead giveaway. Using your mit, apply self-tanner smoothly making sure it looks even. Try not to over self-tan your toes near your nail bed which can make your pedicure look dingy. No more orange feet.
4. BONUS TIP Use stain-resistant, dark clothing when applying, saves clean up time. Shop our NEW Savvy LBD (little black dress) for flawless application.
Cheers to your summer glow and don't forget to protect your hair from additional breakage and split ends sleeping on our luxe satin pillowcases nightly.
