  1. I use self tanners almost every weekend — something about being tan makes me feel ready to go out and have a great time. I stopped using tanning beds, and now I rely on Tan Towels or mystic tan spray tans — I actually get more tan using these than I ever would baking in a bed!

  2. I love self-tanners for many reasons. Instead of days hoping I’ll get a nice tan, I get one in minutes! I don’t have to travel to get a rich dark tan, and best of all, no worry about future wrinkles!

  3. It takes time and practice. First put your hair up, the worst thing you want to do is get that stuff on your hair. Then angle yourself so you can see your back in the mirror. Start with the lower back and slowly work your way up. When you can’t go higher, switch to working on your shoulders, then you’re going to have to very slowly work it down the middle of the back by angling your hands and arms. It looks like a wacked out yoga position, but it can be done. Just go slowly and use a mirror.

  4. Important tips —
    1. if you’re a novice, lather up with lotion first — it blends everything in.
    2. Use a hair dryer over your body to dry and set — this really helps
    3. Wash your palms thoroughly after, but use a wet washcloth so you don’t have streams of water running down your wrists, messing up the tan there
    4. Loreal Sublime is THE BEST tanner (although Banana Boat is great as well)
