When applying a facial tanner, you need to find the right one for you, as the skin can be very sensitive there. I advise a patch test behind the back of your ear first just to be sure. I would go for a clear or gel-like tans as they don’t feel or look heavy on your skin and won’t clog pores or cause spots like other formulas. I would also go for a product that is hydrating with added anti-aging benefits so that you get a tan, as well as beautiful looking skin (why not?). When applying self-tan to your face, exfoliate the face gently first to remove any old tan or dead skin so that the new colour will be applied to a fresh canvas. Then rub an ice cube over your face to close your pores, which will stop them from getting blocked with self tan. Use your fingertips to apply this product, wash straight after (this is basic tanning 101, but it’s important to reiterate!), starting from one side of the face and work around, so as to ensure you don’t miss bits. Remove any unwanted tan around the ears and neck using a Johnson’s Baby Wipe, or if you are using a spray on the face, rub Vaseline on your eyebrows to stop them from discolouring. Also rub moisturiser into your hairline, this will stop you getting a tan line and make your tan look natural.
