All of the Common Questions Answered - Part Two

By Loving Tan on 29 January 2014 click here to comment

I accidentally tanned my palms, how do i get it off? You must always use the deluxe applicator mitt to tan and always moisturize your whole hands and any other dry areas pre tanning. But, if you have made a mistake- try buffing it out with the exfoliation mitt and washing them as much as possible! How long will one bottle last? Well, there is 5-10 full body applications in each bottle depending on how heavily you use! So if you are a tan addict like most of us you tan every second week. So 2 and a half months to 5 months if you are planning on always using it! Longer if you are only going to use it for special occasions! ... continue reading

I’ve never fake tanned before.. What colour should I use? I always recommend trying a medium for your first bottle if you have never tanned as all Loving Tan mousses are professional strength so they can go quite dark! But if you have moderately tanned skin or you are used to being fairly dark then you should go Dark, then work up to Ultra dark shades. I have quite pale skin, will it look ok to use Dark or Ultra Dark? Yes, even if you start out with a lighter base the Ultra Dark will just be a shade... continue reading
