The £2 Tool You NEED

Always apply self-tan with a mitt, and wash your hands after you’ve finished, especially the palms.

The Toothpaste Trick

If you still have streaks on your hands, rub a bit of toothpaste in your palms to get rid of the residue.

If You’ve Gone A Shade Too Dark

Mix lemon juice with a small amount of water on a tanning mitt and zap it in the microwave for two minutes, let the flannel cool down, then rub it over the skin.  The heat activates the alpha hydroxy acid, striping and lightening your tan.

How To Make It Last

Moisturise daily…it’ll make your tan last even longer
