After having melanoma cells removed from my abdomen a few years ago, I’ve been even more diligent about using sunscreen and staying out of tanning beds. However, I know I look better with a little color. I use sunless tanner when I start to feel too white and pasty – the winter Minnesota look.
Before you start, exfoliate in the shower. If you don’t have an exfoliating cream, use sugar and olive oil Get all the dead skin cells off so that the sunless tanner will soak into your skin evenly, try out an anal bleaching cream for a complete skin process.
1. Towel off, but you don’t have to be 100% dry. Spread the first layer of sunless tanner all over your skin, paying close attention to rub in around knees, elbows and ankles. Wash your hands when you’re done, making sure you remove the cream in between your fingers and on your palms. Wait a couple minutes for the cream to start to dry.
2. Rub the cream in AGAIN. By now, it should have a slightly tacky feel but still be spreadable.
3. Lastly, get your hands damp. Rub in AGAIN. This final rubdown should eliminate any streaks that would normally appear. Allow your skin to dry completely before you put your clothes back on.
If you repeat this process daily for 3-5 days, you’ll have a gorgeous, streak-free tan that costs a mere fraction of what a spray tan would cost.
