Secret to a perfect self tan, plus best tans in a bottle

Give yourself a beautiful, sun-kissed glow with these three easy tips

Give yourself a beautiful, sun-kissed glow with these three easy tips:

1. The best time to ‘tan’ is after a shower. Towel off (to exfoliate any dead skin) and moisturize all over.

2. Give yourself at least 30 minutes to apply the tanner and let it dry. But don’t stick around the hot, steamy bathroom to put it on — sweat and humidity can make your tan streaky.

3. Less is more, especially around your knees and elbows, where tanner can collect. And always wash your hands!
