DO shave! A razor not only slices off stubble-it also sloughs off dead skin cells on your legs, enabling your self tanner to go on more evenly.
DON’T lather on moisturizer after self-tanner. This dilutes the formula and can cause it to run and streak. If your skin is very dry, apply your body lotion first, wait five minutes for it to dry, then apply the self-tanner.
