Fake tan and hairy legs

I never tan, DH has bought me some fake tan to try but i really hate shaving my legs and do it maybe twice a month. So, do I have to shave first and if so, I know I couldn't get fake tanned after waxing, do I need to leave a gap between the shaving and the fake tan applying?

If the hair is very long or coarse the stuff won't go on easily. If it's fair then it will be dyed by the tanning cream. I shave and then put the cream straight on. Never wax so don't know about that.

Ok, shaving it is. I just hate it. Always cut myself and always miss loads hmm.

Why are you fake tanning at all? It doesn't sound like it is your thing

Fwiw, I do sometimes ft, but find that if I do it after waxing, I'm left with dots in my pores. Not sure about shaving, but reckon you'd need to give it a day or two to moisturise and prepare your skin.

Exfoliate, shave and tan.

Just because I hate my legs, I've got really fat and I wanted to see if it made me feel confident.
