Shave then tan or tan then shave?

I'm out Saturday night. Wearing a dress. I've been using a gradual tan the last two nights and plan to do so once more, but I'll either have to shave my legs on Friday night or Saturday morning... I don't want to either exfoliate all the tan off or essentially shave it off! But I also know that you're not supposed to shave before you tan because otherwise it'll go patchy... Any ideas? confused

Shave tomorrow night then tan on Saturday before you go out. At least that's what I would do!

Shave today. No more tan today

Carry on tanning until Saturday

(I found tan after shaving sat in the hair follicles as little dots over my legs...)

Thank you so far, so tan Saturday morning before I go to work and then quick shower when I get back.. the only issue is I find the tan smells a bit odd, not awful but noticeable blush
