Common Questions

Every time I use a sunless tanner I get orange patches around my ankles and elbows. Any recommendations?

We are big fans of sunless tanning so we know all the tricks of the trade. Here is our best recommendation to avoid the patchiness.

  1. Exfoliate your body before applying your sunless tanner. This will slough off dead skin cells where sunless tanners like to stick, creating uneven color development.
  2. Apply a thin layer of moisturizer around your ankles, elbows, knees and wrists before you apply your sunless tanner. This will keep the sunless tanner from concentrating in these problem areas.

 

We are flying over the holidays. Any skincare tips?

The further you get from sea level, the higher the dose of cosmetic radiation. Passengers flying at 35,000 feet are exposed to between 50 and 100 times more gamma radiation than when they are on earth. Make sure you fortify your skin with antioxidant skincare and adequate broad spectrum sunscreen.  And choose an aisle seat or pull the window shade down.
