STEP 1: EXFOLIATE
If you don’t know already, exfoliating and fake tanning go hand in hand, like salt and pepper. You just can’t have one without the other, so whether you’re going for a spray tan or fake tanning at home make sure to get scrubbing to remove any dead and dry skin cells. Your fake tan needs fresh base to work with to get a perfect streak free tan.
If you need to remove a full layer of tan or don’t fancy scrubbing, use our Tan Remover Mitt. This will leave your skin not only a fresh canvas but re-balanced, so your next layer of tan will last that little bit longer!
STEP 2: MOISTURISE
Moisturise your feet, particularly your ankles (and any other dry areas you may have). This is to ensure that tan does not cling to dry areas, or go darker than the rest of your body – the first tell-tale sign of fake-tanned feet! Moisturiser acts as a barrier to tan so just a light layer will ensure it doesn’t go too dark, but apply a little bit more to any drier skin you may have.
We’d recommend using an oil-free moisturiser if possible. Oil-based lotions tend to breakdown tan quicker, and we want to leave you glowing as long as possible!
STEP 3: APPLY!
When it comes to tanning your feet, less is more. Once you’ve finished applying fake tan to the rest of your body, use the left over product on your mitt for your feet – we promise, it’s enough. Glide the tanning mitt over your feet using the excess tan from the mitt, making sure you lightly sweep over your toes, the sides of your feet and the back of your ankles.
If you want more control, you could also use a make-up brush and rub it along your mitt to gather up some of the excess fake tan, and then apply to your foot in sweeping motions, blending into the creases and toes as you go!
STEP 4: FINISHING TOUCHES
Don’t forget to give your feet a little clean up afterwards. Simply wipe your toenails and the sole of your feet (just in case). This will help leave you with a flawless finish, with no tell-tale signs in sight!
If you make a mistake – don’t worry! You can correct any fake tanning mistakes with our Tan Remover. To remove fake tan mistake – simply massage the mousse into the area you made a slip-up and leave for 5 minutes before rinsing off. Et voila!
Happy Tanning x
