I'm not the kind of person to sit at the pool and tan. I barely get a tan. However I do feel like a splash of color gives a more healthy appearance. Especially when you're as white as me. So I decided to try St. Tropez's express mousse. I have fake tanned before but I always used lightly bronzed cremes that fade after a day or two. This however should last for a week. It was the first time ever and if you swipe left you can see the before and after.
On the picture it isn't completely visible but I did notice I missed some spots or had noticeable darker places where my skin is a bit dry. That's why I made up a list of tips I should keep in mind for my next try and perhaps it would be useful to read this before your first attempt.
Apply lotion on to ankles, elbows, hands, toes and knees and then apply some more
Buy a good tanning glove
Don't forget the inside of your belly button, your armpits, between your toes and fingers
Find someone to do your back
Legs first than the rest (belly marks)
Do a visual check when you think you are done
Wear loose clothes after while everything is working in
Don't sweat !
Use the body lotion and wash gel to prolong your tan
Use a different tanning agent and your face
Well these are all the tips I can give you. I hope you found them useful. Overall I'm happy with the results I got even though I still need some practice. Let me know what you think and if tell if there's something I forgot !
