Tips for a Better At-Home Tan

If you're new to self-tanning, there are a few things you need to know before you start applying your Fake Bake lotion, liquid, gel, serum or mousse. First, it's important to exfoliate before you start. The smoother your skin is, the more consistent your tan will appear. It's also important to make sure your skin is hydrated before you start. The best body moisturizer to use before tanning at home is a lightweight oil-free body moisturizer or a moisturizing body spray. A few handy accessories can also help with the application, such as a self-tanning mitt or a self-tanning glove.

Keep Your Tan Going Strong

Made some mistakes during your self-tan product application? No worries - just use our self- tan Corrector & E raser to gently adjust or remove to get the even, bronzed tone you want. This product can be used with any of our regular self-tanning products. After your self-tanning process is complete, you can help it last longer by using a body moisturizer on a daily basis and avoiding the use of any harsh products on the skin. That includes retinols, acne treatments and exfoliators. If you keep your skin hydrated and healthy, your at-home tan can last for weeks.
