Q. How do I use sunless tanner and look truly tan and not “orange” or streaky? Do you have any product recommendations or tips for applying tanner properly?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
Sunless tanner is a great way to keep that summer glow all year round. For best application, start with exfoliation. Prepping the skin is key to a flawless look. Begin by shaving your legs and exfoliate with the Fruit Enzyme Scrub all over your body. Let skin dry completely, then apply MyChelle Del Sol Sunless Tanner.
MyChelle Del Sol Sunless Tanner contains natural sugars from beets, sugar cane and other plants that react with the skin’s surface to safely create a natural-looking “tan.” Licorice and aloe are added to soothe, repair and hydrate for skin that stays youthfully glowing. For a gorgeous tan, always apply it to clean, freshly exfoliated skin. Reapply after 12 hours for a deeper “tan.”
To achieve color gradually, try mixing tanner with facial or body moisturizer. And be sure to wash your hands completely after each application!
