What are some tips to applying self tanner?

Body Makeup

During the summer months, a gal's got to show a little skin! And to make that skin look its best, it's time to try a little body makeup, otherwise known as "self tanner."

To achieve goddess-like bronzed skin, you want to make sure you apply the self tanner on clean, exfoliated skin. It also helps to moisturize any drier areas of your body first so that they don't absorb too much color. Smooth on knees, feet and hands so that they don't end up looking too dark. Then, apply the self tanner and make sure you blend, blend, blend, and then blend some more. Getting the application even is a little tricky at first. If you have trouble, try to find a formula that is tinted so you can see where it's going on your skin. Give it enough time to dry so that your clothes don't end up bronzed too and immediately wash your hands after. In as little as an hour, you will be ready to flaunt your newly golden gams!
