Your Guide to Applying Self-Tanning Lotion Evenly, Stillwater, Oklahoma

As the weather warms up, you’ll likely want to start working on a gorgeous tan for the summer. If you don’t yet have the chance to sunbathe, self-tanning lotion is a convenient option. However, you want to apply it evenly to prevent uneven coloration and skin damage. Tanning salon professionals offer the following advice for achieving a perfect golden glow. 

4 Tips for Using Self-Tanning Lotion

1. Shave & Exfoliate

Shaving your arms, legs, and any other areas you plan to apply self-tanning lotion to will help the product absorb into the skin. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells to prevent streaks and splotches from developing.

Dry skin sometimes absorbs too much self-tanning lotion, which means certain parts of your body may appear darker than others. The simple solution is to moisturize your skin first, paying particular attention to elbows, knees, and ankles. 

3. Blend Carefully 

As you apply self-tanning lotion, focus on careful blending. More sensitive areas of skin on the face, wrists, and feet usually require less product than other parts of the body. Start by applying a thin, even coat to your face, ears, and neck, and then work downward. Use gentle, circular motions, and wear gloves so you won’t stain your palms. For your back, use a wand for hard-to-reach areas or ask a friend to assist. 

4. Dry & Wipe Off Excess

With soft tissue paper, wipe off any excess tanning lotion in darker areas, especially on your hands and feet. Use a blow dryer on the cool setting to dry off your skin so your tan does not smear.
