Ok actually it's not really aibu, but would you do it? Can i just fake tan my legs and not the rest? I don't want to have orange legs, I just dont want to have white-blue legs and sick of wearing leggings just.
what sort of supermarket sold lotion or spray should i use?

I just do my legs. They don't have to be orange! If , like me, your legs are paler than the rest of your body then you just need a light tan to make them look better. Try St.Tropez in shower tanner, quick and easy and gives my legs a nice glow /gets rid of the White/blue. If you put a proper, full on fake tan on just your legs then they'll end up looking much darker than the rest of you!

I use the Garnier Sun-Kissing moisturiser - works really well on my legs and blends in nicely.

I do my legs only.
Slow build up with Garnier Summer Body.
It's fab but make sure you wash your hands afterwards.
Give it a week or so of doing it every other day and you'll have a nice healthy glow to your legs.

Same as pp I do just legs (often just the bits that show in clothes as wellblush). I find my arms/shoulders catch sun easily early on and it stays all summer whereas my legs stay blue regardless of exposure.

I use the Johnson and Johnson summer skin one a couple of times a week so it builds up slowly/naturally. Definitely not orange

I also use the garnier one just on my legs. I once tried to use fake bake (a very dark sleep in tan) on my legs but I kept on getting it everywhere so ended up doing my whole body and face, I looked like a minstrel and when I woke in the morning I had a white dribble line down my chin blush

Dove Summer Glow is one I've used for years and very good, it's a moisturiser and you start to notice it after an hour or 2, lasts for a couple of days before wearing off, use it on legs when on holiday and apply it every day. It doesn't streak.

They've recently rebranded it, it's now called Dove Derma Spa Summer Revived, but it's the same stuff.

Use the one for medium to dark skin unless you are very very pale.

Another vote for St Tropez in-shower tanner, it's really quick and easy, and you don't have to worry about it drying or sleeping in it.

Make sure you exfoliate loads and moisturise a few days up to doing it, legs get dry easily and can get very streaky. I use latex gloves to make sure my hands don't go orange!
