Exfoliate your skin in a hammam or with some exfoliating cream. Use a flannel and scrub your whole body. Once you are completely dry. With a clean thin coton flannel rub some self tanning lotion on to your skin. There is nothing worst than having white strips or marks and patches where the self tanning lotion wasn’t spread …. A thin flannel will help apply it evenly. A lot of self tanning lotions don’t bring out the right color. Some are orange or pink. Dior self tanner, gives a perfectly natural result and color. This is best one that I have found so far. If you are still with bare legs and not yet wearing trousers or tights .Baume de Monoi smells of the beach, the sun and is shimmery, it gives the skin a nice glow. I highly recommend it if you are still showing bare legs….
