Natural & gradual self-tanner, Tantasia, from jane iredaleHow to apply self-tanner

Shave, Exfoliate, Moisturize One Day Before

Prepare your skin by shaving, exfoliating and moisturizing one day prior to application. When exfoliating, pay special attention to your elbows, knees and feet. Then, moisturize your skin thoroughly with a water-based lotion for optimal penetration of the active ingredients.

Prep with Smooth Affair

To ensure you end up with an even glow on those awkward to tan places, prep your elbows, knees, heels, toes and cuticles with Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener.

Add a Some Shimmer to Your Glow

Apply a mixture of 24-Karat Gold Dust and Tantasia to your skin for a shimmery, bronze finish.
