How to Avoid Brown Palms With Self Tanner

Have you ever have a problem of having dark brown or orange palms after applying a sunless tanning lotion???

Yup! I have too! So here is a tried and tested way to prevent just that!

1. Use gloves! It's that simple. I personally use surgical gloves because it's tight and fitted and doesn't crease when I apply my lotion.

2. Use a sponge roller paint brush. It actually work great. You can also thin your self tanner by adding a little water so you can work on it using a roller brush.

3. Wash your hands often. By washing your hands often while applying your fake tanning lotion you'll wash off the solution before it takes effect. For example, you can wash your hand after each section. It also helps if you apply a lotion or moisturizer in your hands before applying the self tanner.

4. Buy a self tan remover product like Modelco Tan Remover Exfoliating Body Scrub or St. Tropez Self Tan Remover

5. Use a tanning gloves, read again TANNING GLOVES. It's a self tanner that comes with an applicator, a glove, so you would worry about your palms. Nice right?

Do what you can to avoid those dark hands, of course we want our tan to look as natural as possible and an orange hand is just a dead give away!

    The other option would be to buy an actual self tan remover product such as St. Tropez self tan remover.

  • Step 3
    Another great way to avoid tanning the palms of your hands is to put a bit of moisturizer on your hands and then apply the self tanner. Washing your hands after each section of self tanner is applied is important so you don't leave the self tanner on long enough to start processing. This is the most time consuming choice but it does help!
