Am off to Majorca over Easter for a long weekend. I am a total fake tan novice but I can't show off my legs and arms the colour that they are at the moment! (white with a hint of blue!) Could anyone recommend a fake tan? Or give me some tips on applying it? My last attempt at fake tanning - some 5 years ago - left me with orange knees and ankles. Not the bronzed look I was aiming for
Vita Liberata! its a great colour and easy to apply because its tinted so you can see exactly where you have missed.
in terms of application tips, a couple of days before start exfoliating in the shower and pay particular attention to knees, ankles and elbows. slather on lots of moisturiser. prior to application, give yourself a final gentle exfoliate in the shower. definitely get yourself an application mitt from boots/superdrug and apply by stroking it over your skin, dont rub! apply sparingly to ankles and knees.
