How long does your fake tan last?

I put some fake tan on my legs on Thursday night and I reapplied last night. But really it should have been done Sunday because it had well faded by then. Doesn't seem long enough. Did all the prep - shower, shave, exfoliate, moisturise....

It depends on how quickly your skin cell regenerate, the younger you are, the faster they regenerate (in general). I find fake tans start to go a bit patchy and fade within a couple of days too.

Moisturising in between applications will help keep the colour even

Ah - you assume it was even to start with. Grin It is not too bad actually by my standards and I do moisturise daily after my shower. Is that enough?

fake tan seems like a lot of faff and not much to show for it imo

I'd say so
