Fantastic natural colour
You cannot go out until it has developed and it's been showered off.
Fake Bake is the BEST fake tan ever. The result is natural (no orange at all) and it does not streak. You must, however, prepare properly.
Any hair removal needs to be done at least 24 hours beforehand.
Exfoliate - I usually scrub once the day before I tan and then once on the day I tan. Come out of the shower - don't use body lotion but you must spray feet, elbows, knees, hands and wrist area with the Skin Smoothie Oil.
Application - Always use gloves - this does stains palms and it doesn't come off. Smooth tan onto body. I usually start at the bottom and work my way up. Rub over legs (using excess for feet and knees - bend knees whilst applying) and continue over the body, doing face last. Do not be alarmed - you will look like you've been rolling in mud and it will not look even. As long as all bits are covered once it's showered off you'll be bronzed and no streaks. After I've covered all of my body/face (boyfriend does my back) take off the gloves and mix some mositurser with tan on a cotton wool pad and do the back of hands.
Then (it's not a quick process), spray some Skin Smoothie Oil onto a cotton wool pad and wipe over sides of feet, heels, toes, etc and inside of underarms to blend in and fade for a more natural look.
The tan take a while to dry, I usually wander around in my knickers for at least 30 minutes before getting into loose (old - it does stain but this will wash out) PJ's. Sleep in it over night and in the morning you will look more brown and muddy than before. Fear not - once you've showered off the guide colour you'll be left with the most natual (fake) tan going. It's lasts approx a week and fades naturally (no flaky patchy bits). Exfoliate every 3 days and moisturise daily.
