Fake tan is a great way to give your body an instant lift, covering a manner of sins and making you look lighter. In this episode of How To Look Good Naked, Gok Wan goes on the hunt for the top tips for applying fake tan.
1. Prepare your canvas
Use a body scrub to get rid of tired, flaky skin cells that the fake tan dye is going to cling to – that’s where the streaks and uneven patches come from!
2. Use body lotion
Apply body lotion to trouble spots like elbows and knees, so that you create a bit of a barrier.
3. Choose the right shade
If you’re fair skinned, don’t go for a dark shade. Instead, choose a light shade, apply every day and slowly build up your tan.
4. Apply in the evening
If you’re using a home kit, apply in the evening before you go to bed to avoid strap lines.
