Achieve the Perfect Spray Tan <3

Hello everyone !! I hope everyone's doing well! I'm back to give a tutorial on the illusive spray tan, probably one of the most hardest things to do at home if you do not use tanning beds or a spray tan booth, to save money. I myself am allergic to UV ray :( so I have to use spray tans to keep my glow up all year round. So please enjoy this, it will give you a step-by-step guide to getting that perfect glow on a not-so-perfect budget. xoxo


Products : The L'Oreal self-tanner collection. Sublime bronze spray, lotion, and tinted gel. I use St Ives lotion or Johnson's, a clear smoothing lotion is all important to ensure no streaks.


Step 1 - Shower. Exfoliate your skin, to get rid of any dirt or dust that can cause the tanner to clump up or streak because your skin was uneven. Shave your bikini line and your legs. Those little cactus hairs can cause imperfections too, lol ~ 


Step 2 - Apply your lotion all over your body. If you have preselected your outfit and parts of your skin will be covered, you don't have to put the tanner on those parts if you don't want too. Once your skin is soft, lay down some old towels or a newspaper, it's time too begin :3


Step 3 : I start with the spray, which is a clear self-tanning gel that takes a few hours to develop. So make up will not be required, you don't want an over load of product on your skin, but if you feel you must, apply a thick primer to hide under-eye bags, acne, etc., and massage in circles around my face and neck. Once it has completely sunk into the skin (and it has a nice, citrus scent so it doesn't stink), apply the spray to your arms, chest, around your breasts and around your waist and hips, depending on if you want it there. 


Step 4 : Next we use the lotion. Apply a decent amount to hands (don't freak out about the dark brown color, it will blend in), and apply to your feet, toes, and travel up until you reach your bikini line, so your legs are entirely covered. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT PUT ON YOUR GENITAL AREA. This can cause yeast infections, or severe, painful infections, and can irritate and inflame the skin. If you're having sex though, don't worry, the guy will probably be so pumped he's getting laid he won't even notice Lol. 


Step 5 : You may or may not need someone to help you with this part. Apply the lotion around your midsection, and when you reach your back have someone come and help you apply it to your back. If you are amazingly limber or have access to a clean roller brush then use that, haha. 


Step 6 : By now you are covered in the tanner, but now what? You're leaving in twenty minutes, these products take approximately an hour to start becoming visible.... aha! The gel tint comes to the rescue. This works immediately. Apply a decent squirt to your hands, and apply all over your face, neck, shoulders, etc, anywhere that will be not covered by clothing. Immediately a nice glow develops. 


Step 7 : By now, you are ready. Wash your hands-- don't worry, it won't make your hands white since you already used enough tanner on your hands for applying it. Wipe them on a paper towel so you don't end up assaulting a cloth towel. At this point, your hair should be dry and you can do your hair, your make up, even your nails, and by the time you are finished your skin will be completely dry and will not rub off on your clothes. Throw your clothes on and you're good to go, within a few hours you will be glowing like a fox :)
