Achieving a fake tan flawlessly is trickier than it may appear. Extra steps taken pre-treatment can greatly improve the way a spray-on tan rests upon the skin. Remember those annoying dark patches that appear on knees and elbows? If you were to exfoliate prior to self tanning and apply a dab of moisturizer afterwards to those areas where we tend to get a buildup of dry skin then chances are lessened that color will cling to those areas and darken. These kind of tips were the subject in Allure magazine's feature on getting a flawless professional spray tan.
For those who want to forego a salon visit, there are many great at home products to choose from like St Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Mousse.

No need to worry about the horrible smell that typically comes with sunless tanning because of their trademarked Aromaguard technology that eliminates smell by 70% and instead gives a refreshing and subtle fragrance. Hope these tips help you achieve the most effective and beautiful sunless tan all year round!
