Try it yourself with these 3 simple tanning tips:
1. 24 hours before you tan – exfoliate to remove dead skin cells and pay particular attention to knees and ankles so ensure they’re super soft. This is also the best time to shave or wax, so that your skin has time to recover meaning you get the most even tan.
2. Apply pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan in Medium for a natural tan that’s super easy to apply and dries in an instant.
3. For a finishing touch that will give you enviable pins, arch your foot an point your toe to help you see your muscles more clearly. Apply Trystal Minerals in the shadowed area to create definition
