Skincare companies are constantly coming out with self-tanning lotions with new, less-orange formulas to bronze our winter white skin. However, I have still had quite a few fake-tanning mishaps, as I’m sure you have too! Here is a way to avoid them.
Make sure to exfoliate before tanning. Then, in order to prevent zebra-stripe streaking use a gradual tanning lotion such as Jergens Natural Glow ($9.99) or L’Oreal’s Sublime Glow ($10) before applying an instant tanning lotion or aerosol spray such as L’Oreal’s Sublime Bronze ($10.79) or Neutrogena Micro-Mist Airbrush Sunless Tan Spray ($11.99). This will create a natural-looking base which is then enhanced, if you so choose, by the instant tanner resulting in a streak-free glow.
