As I always say, fake tan preparation is essential! Your tan is only as perfect as the skin it’s applied to. I regularly remind readers of the perfect skin prep routine; however, there is one secret ingredient that many tanners find extremely useful.
There are areas of the body that fake tan clings to more and can make very orange. To avoid this happening, you can apply moisturiser to dryer areas of your body such as elbows, hands, feet, knees etc to stop the tan grabbing. However, sometimes if these areas are very dry, this is still not quite effective enough. For other areas such as the hair line and eyebrows, moisturisers are just never enough.
So say hello to your new best friend, Vaseline. Simply dot a small amount along your eye brows and next to your hair line. Dotting the Vaseline means that it will only stick to the hair and not the skin around it, therefore avoiding large, pale tide marks on the skin where there should be tan, but isn’t.
You can rub in as much Vaseline as you want to any of the dry areas of your body, this will ensure you do not get dark or cracked orange looking patches!
