TIP 1: MIST IT!
The easiest, quickest and best way to fake tan your back is with our NEW Self Tan Purity Vitamins Body Mist. Simply spritz the elongated mist over your shoulders to reach those hard-to-reach areas! Bow your head slightly, and spritz the mist from side-to-side, holding the bottle just above your head. The ultra-lightweight Mist has an elongated spray so you’ll be able to reach even the hardest parts of your back, and has a lovely cosmetic powder-soft finish, so you don’t need to wait long to put your top back on! Because the Mist is transparent, you won’t need to worry about any transfer either, what’s not to love?
You can also use our Self Tan Classic, Express and Dark Mists if you prefer, these have a guide colour so will help see where you have applied. With their 360 degree nozzle, these versatile mists allow you to be able to turn the mists upside down to both spritz upwards from your lower back and down from over your shoulder too!
This is also a great tip to keep in mind if you do happen to miss a spot (it happens to the best of us sometimes), or want a fool-proof way to tan your hands and feet – the mist evenly distributes leaving you with no tell-tale signs of fake tanning!
TIP 2: USE A DOUBLE SIDED MITT!
Using our double sided mitt makes tanning your back that little bit easier. Once you’ve applied to as far as you can reach, simply turn your hand around so the side of the mitt with tan on is sitting on the top of your hand, and you’ll be able to reach that little bit further! Need to blend? Just use the other side of the mitt. Disclaimer: Yoga moves still required!I
It’s a good idea to tan near a mirror, so that you can turn your back to see what and where you are applying.
TIP 3: RAID THE KITCHEN!
Alternatively, you can assemble your own back applicator by raiding your kitchen…no seriously!
All you need is a wooden spoon or a spatula and then you can pop the applicator mitt over the head and secure in place with a hair bobble. This will give you those crucial few extra centimetres of reaching power and make fake tanning your back a whole lot easier!

TIP 4: TRUST SOMEONE TO HAVE YOUR BACK
If you’re not a chef in the making and don’t happen to have a wooden spoon to hand, we’d recommend asking someone for a helping hand on tanning your back. Mum, friend or even sweet-talking your partner into helping apply your fake tan is definitely a worthy investment. Just let them know their Thursday evenings are now committed to #TanningThursday…
