Glow With Self-Tanner
Tips for Tricky Parts
We all know the basics for applying self-tanner: Exfoliate beforehand, wear gloves and smooth onto clean, dry skin. But, how can you be sure you'll get a natural-looking tan with all your nooks and crannies? Apply tanner like a pro with tips and tricks from Helen Famulare, Spa Training Manager for Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salon and Spas.--Jessica Goldberg
Between toes/fingers: Avoid these areas. Tanner collects in webbing, causing discoloration.
Heels, knees, knuckles, elbows: Skin around these joints is drier and more prone to streaks. Use a loofah on these areas and apply moisturizer the night before tanning.
Belly button: Remove excess self-tanner with a cotton swab.
Back: Must use a spray for self application. Look in a two-way mirror to apply evenly.
Face: Apply Vaseline to lips and eyebrows to keep them color-free. Never spray directly onto your face. Spray gloves, rub together, and apply.
