Truth be told, self tanners scare me. No matter what the bottles may promise, it seems to me that it's much easier to create orange splotches than an even, natural glow.
But it has officially reached that point in the summer when my unchanging fair complexion really needs a boost, so despite my fears, I'm taking the plunge.

"Avoid oil-based skin care, which can work against color." — Kim Carrasco, Sunless, Inc.
"Excessive sweating, then rubbing at the skin will take the tan off and make it patchy. Use a light exfoliator every few days. Pat the skin—do not rub—and make sure you also moisturize every day after bathing and showering to lock in moisture and color." — Sophie Evans, St. Tropez Skin Finishing Expert
To fix any mistakes...
"Use a self-tan remover like St. Tropez Tan Remover. If the tan still looks uneven, go over with a gradual self-tanner (in a lighter shade than the one you were using)." — Sophie Evans, St. Tropez Skin Finishing Expert
"Try to lighten the area with an aggressive exfoliant, then reapply and blend in the surrounding area." — Kim Carrasco, Sunless, Inc.
