As everyone in the office knows, I am completely hooked on our ESSENTIALS Foaming Sunless Tan. I use it once (winter) or twice (spring, summer and fall) a week, 52 weeks a year. And I’m a head-to-toe tanner too. Speaking of toes, here’s my application secret when it comes to my feet: Apply Foaming Sunless Tan to your legs first, and keep a little excess foam on your palms. Swipe (yes, I mean swipe) this excess from your ankle to your toes in one motion, catching all toes and repeating to get the full foot. I find this swiping motion to be the most effective way to achieve natural-looking color. Then I make sure to apply some around my ankles, heels and sides of the foot (I make sure to get a little on the bottom edges, so no one sees a line on the side of my foot when wearing sandals). I use this same technique on my hands too. I also highly recommend exfoliating before applying sunless tanner, paying particular attention to feet, ankles, knees and elbows. I have always thought of sunless tanners as more trouble than they are worth, but the easy-to-use foam of ESSENTIALS Foaming Sunless Tan has completely changed my point of view!
