All About Sunless Tanning

So I am naturally very very pale, so pale that my nickname when I started high school was Casper (it really does get better you guys). I discovered Jergens “natural” glow when I was a sophomore in high school and I’ve never really gone back. (I’m doing a separate post on all my favorite tanning products) Over the years of bronzing myself, I have become a self-proclaimed self tanning expert and here are five tips that I swear by.

 Shave, shower, exfoliate. I know everyone reads this in their magazines but for some reason I didn’t do this for years… I’m telling you- it makes a huge difference. I use this glove and this exfoliator in the shower.

Use fragrance free lotion! Applying lotion will help you stay moisturized which will help the tan fade more evenly. Fragrance free is imperative as fragrance will eat away at the tan making it fade quicker and unevenly. I use this lotion but anything that advertises as fragrance free will work!

If you’re going to get a spray tan and you find that the bottoms of your feet look orange or splotchy (if they don’t give you foot protectors) you can use a baby wipe to gently wipe the bottoms of your feet right after.


If you can’t get the last of the stubborn tan off, use this micellar water to finish taking off any remnant of your tan.


When you need a tanning glove don’t buy an expensive one because they’re all the same. Go to Ulta and buy their brand’s tanning glove. Stock up when Ulta brand items are buy two get two free and then use whatever coupon they have on the website (usually $3.50 or 20% off). It takes me awhile to go through them because when they start to get v v used I wash them with disinfectant soap and warm water and let it air dry.
