~First I always tell my clients to use high quality products to exfoliate and hydrate their skin. Cheap products have junk them; yes I'm a product snob! (wink)
~Exfoliate on a regular basis, not just once right before your tan.
~You can make your own simple scrub; granulated sugar and a Rami mitt or washcloth.
~Hydrate your skin from the inside out; Drink lots of water and use a great lotion.
~Do not spray perfume on your chest, spray it on your clothes. Your tan can get splotchy here due to the build up of perfume it permeates the skin w/repeated use.
~Stay away from really hot showers and NO baths till you want to remove the tan. When your ready to do that take a HOT batch with some baby oil and baking soda and soak for 10min then stand up and scrub.
~If you skip days of putting lotion on your skin then it will fade quicker and can get splotchy...A real tan does the same thing. Its your natural cells shedding, they don't shed evenly.
~The more you do sunless the better it keeps taking, Even my clients who do it only once a month find that it looks so natural.
~Before working out put a little cornstarch based powder on the shoulders, between breasts, under underarms. Then when done make sure to rinse off the sweat don't let it sit on your skin to dry, sweat has all those toxins that you just got out of your body...so rinse!
Hope this helps you get good sunless even if I can't be the one giving it to you!
