Getting Self-Tanner On Evenly
Here’s a strategy that’s worked for me and our patients to get a good self-tan:
Add 2 cups of Epsom salts into a bath and soak for 10-15 minutes (whole body if possible). Use a loofah, scrub, or a natural bristle brush (best because can do your back more easily) and really scrub your whole body. Don’t forget your feet, ankles, and around the armpits. Lightly scrub neck and face. Dry off well.
Put some plain lotion on your palms (reduces staining) and then apply the self-tanner evenly to your entire body. I like Sun Laboratories because it smells reasonably good and has a light indicator in it so you can tell where you are. Wash your hands well with soap and re-lotion. Wait about 10 minutes before putting on clothes, and use dark ones. No sweating or showering for 6-8 hours. Happy safe tan!
