Step 1: Exfoliate

If you don’t know already, exfoliating and fake tanning go hand in hand. You can’t have one without the other, so whether you’re going for a spray tan or fake tanning at home, make sure to scrub so that you remove any dead skin cells. You’ll need a fresh base to work with to achieve that perfect, streak-free tan.

If you need to remove a full layer of tan or don’t fancy scrubbing, use our Tan Remover Mousse and Tan Remover Mitt. Together, they will leave your skin feeling super smooth, creating a fresh blank canvas for your new tan.


Step 2: Moisturize

Moisturize your feet, particularly your ankles (and any other dry areas you may have). This is to ensure that tan doesn’t cling to dry areas, or go darker than the rest of your body – the first tell-tale sign of fake-tanned feet! Moisturizer acts as a barrier to tan so just a light layer will ensure it goes on evenly and not too dark.

We’d recommend using an oil-free moisturizer if possible. Oil-based lotions tend to breakdown tan quicker, and you’ll want your tan to last as long as possible!


Step 3: Apply!

When it comes to tanning your feet, less is more. Once you’ve finished applying fake tan to the rest of your body, use the leftover product on your mitt for your feet – we promise, it’s enough. Glide the tanning mitt over your feet, making sure you lightly sweep over your toes, the sides of your feet and the backs of your ankles.

If you want more control, we recommend using a makeup brush. Rub it along your mitt to gather up some of the excess fake tan, and then apply to your foot in sweeping motions, blending into the creases and toes.


Step 4: Finishing touches

Don’t forget to give your feet a little clean afterwards. Wipe your toenails and the soles of your feet (just in case). You don’t want to leave any tell-tale signs that your tan isn’t real!

If you make a mistake – don’t worry. You can correct any fake tanning mistakes with our Tan Remover. Simply massage the mousse into the area and leave for 5 minutes before rinsing off. Et voila – you’ve just learned how to fake tan your feet!
