It seems obvious that products combined with application of self tanner are the most important steps for an even, sleekly bronzed glow. And both are definitely of great consequence (one reason why St. Tropez is so highly prized/ addictive), but there is another step that’s super crucial to a streak-free, perfect polish – exfoliation.
Exfoliation removes dead skin cells to reveal younger and newer skin. It also unclogs pores, cleans the skin, and helps stop breakouts from forming. Exfoliating before tanner application will ensure an even and longer-lasting colour. It will also erase older self tanner that may still be clinging to your skin. Using a loofah or exfoliating product before self tanning or getting professional colour sprayed on (we do it at BC) extends the life of the hue and makes for a perfect patina. Come on, get your glow on.
