Simply spritz the elongated mist over your shoulders to tan those hard-to-reach areas. Bow your head slightly, and spritz the mist from side-to-side, holding the bottle just above your head. The ultra-lightweight Mist bottle has an elongated spray neck so you’ll be able to reach even the trickiest of spots. It has a lovely cosmetic powder-soft finish, so there’s no need to wait to put your clothes on. As the Mist is transparent, you won’t need to  worry about any transfer either – what’s not to love?

We also recommend our Self Tan Classic, Express and Dark Mists, as these have a guide color so will help you to see where you have applied. With their 360 degree nozzle, these versatile mists allow you to be able to turn the mists upside down to both spritz upwards from your lower back and down from over your shoulder too!


Tip 2: Use a double-sided mitt

Using our double sided mitt makes tanning your back that little bit easier. Once you’ve applied as far as you can reach, simply turn your hand around and blend upwards from the bottom of your back. It’s a good idea to tan near a mirror, so that you can turn your back to see where you’re applying!


Tip 3: Raid the kitchen

Alternatively, you can assemble your own back applicator by raiding your kitchen …

All you need is a wooden spoon or a spatula, and then you can pop the applicator mitt over the head and secure in place with a hair bobble. This will give you those crucial few extra centimetres of reaching power and make fake tanning your back a whole lot easier.


Tip 4: Trust someone to have your back

If you don’t have a wooden spoon to hand, we’d recommend asking someone for a helping hand on tanning your back. Mum, friend or even sweet-talking your partner into helping apply your fake tan is definitely a worthy investment. Just let them know their Thursday evenings are now committed to #TanningThursday …
