Applying Fake Tan To Your Hands

How To Apply Fake Tan To The Back Of Your Hands

Applying self tanner on the body is a fairly easy process once you've done it a couple of times, but it's always been difficult to know how best to apply it to the back of your hands. After all, you don't want pale hands looking out of place compared with the rest of your body. There are actually a couple of very easy ways to apply self tan to the backs of hands to finish off your tan and make it look flawless.

The simplest way is to use a self tanning mitt. Use the mitt initially to apply the self tan all over the body. The mitt will hold a certain amount of the self tan lotion within the sponge - enough so that after you've finished applying tan to your body you'll have enough left in it to brush over the backs of your hands and give them a nice light natural looking colour without any streaks. Be careful on the dry areas (such as the knuckles) that you don't apply too much pressure as by doing so may mean too much tan is absorbed resulting in too dark a tan developing in these areas alone.

If you don't have a self tanning mitt, try putting a small amount of self tanner on the back on one of your hands, then gently rub the backs of both hands together in circular motions watching that the lotion absorbs evenly and covers all the desired places.

These methods will help ensure your hands develop the same colour as the rest of your body and you have a natural-looking all-over tan.
