When using a wash-off tan, it’s important to still moisturise the dry areas on the body such the hands, feet, elbows, knees, in the same way you would with a self-tan. I also recommend using a mitt to apply the product. Start from the face and work your way down. As it’s a wash off you don’t have to worry about missing bits – allow it to dry for ten minutes and assess the skin for even coverage before putting clothes on. A handy hint is that instant tans are also really good to even out self-tan mistakes – just fill in the gaps! These lotions wash off (as the name would suggest!) easily with soap in the shower, but by the same token, will streak if they get wet, so be careful!
