Summer is practically here and not only do I not have the time to be pale I also don’t have any spare time to schedule and go to any spray tan appointments! I finally found a few amazing products I’m OBSESSED with, that keep me tan and glowing. Self tanning for the first time can be a little intimidating but it’s so easy and worth doing on your own! (Not to mention you’ll end up saving some $).
Things you’ll need:
- tanning mitten
- tanning mousse
- someone to help tan your back
- foundation or powder brush

Shave and exfoliate your whole body to get all the dead skin cells or old tan off ( I usually prefer to do this the day before or the morning of)
dry off and make sure your body has zero lotions, perfume or deodorant.
I prefer to start with the bottom of my body and work my way up but it’s all preference! I apply 2 pumps of mousse to my mitt and work with small sections while doing circular motions.
When I get to my face/neck I like to use a big makeup brush and blend it on, then I dab/rub it in with the mitt to blend it seamlessly.
Allow the tan to dry on your body for 60 seconds, change into loose clothing and wait at least 6 hours before showering. Thats it! Easy and done within 10 minutes from home.
To make my tan last beautifully throughout the next 7-9 days I like to use a tanning moisturizer to keep the glow. I purchased the shade dark for a subtle tan but definitely recommend Loving Tan’s ultra dark.
