Amazing article! Leanne, you really did your homework! I think anyone interested in experimenting with a sunless tanner would benefit from this article.

Thanks for the tips.

I sweat too much throughout the day and inevitably that causes rub offs onto my clothes or blotchiness. I hate it!

With so many individuals being diagnosed with Melanoma (me for one) it seems to be the saftest way to have golden tan skin. I had to learn this the hard way. "Don't be like me a statistic ." Michelle D.

You didn't mention tanning wipes. I use Tan Towels and they are nearly goof proof, no dark elbows or knees, no tanned panties, sheets or bath towels. They seem to smooth my skin too and I like the light citrusy scent that dissapears right away. I thought I had used different wipes, but it turns out that the Life brand from Shoppers Drug Mart is made by the same company. I have dayglo white skin and these are way a)cheaper b) more comfortable c) quicker over several days than hosiery and he he then you can wear your legs with shorts or a bathing suit too.

I use an airbrush with circular strokes and get great results. I have found that using multible light coats works best for a natural look. I do a light coat at night befor bed then another in the morning after I shower. It is worth the trouble if you want a tan. I was diagnosed with malignant melanoma 7 years ago. My 16 year old daughter had 2 melanoma leasions removed in March.

I tried a fake tan, but couldn't quite get past the smell that the chemical has. Maybe I won't notice it as much this year...?

"Use enough tanner to cover a whole area of your body at once (such as your entire arm) using long, smooth, downward strokes for even coverage."

Large circular strokes are better for avoiding streaks!
