The key to a sun-kissed glow without any sunbathing involved? Fake tan. Read on for tricks how to prep your face before fake tanning to achieve a perfectly bronzed, even and luminous complexion.

  1. Cleanse your face

    Rid your complexion of makeup and impurities before you do anything else. We suggest double cleansing with an oil-based cleanser first, followed by a water-based cleanser to ensure a thorough cleanse.

  2. Exfoliate the skin

    Make sure to exfoliate properly to remove dead skin cells — not only will it leave your skin soft and radiant but ensure an even application and help avoid patchy tan.
