Do you know how to properly apply self-tanners to achieve a soft, even, sun-kissed glow on your skin? 

Looking good while using a self-tanner isn't always easy. In fact, there are a few tricks you need to know to use them successfully.  The biggest problem is that self-tanners naturally get stuck in the thicker areas of your skin like your freckles and over your knees. Self-tanners can also dry out your skin and the active ingredient can have a funny mayonnaise-like smell. Still, I love self-tanners and will take them any day over sun damaged skin, but there are some tricks to getting the look you want with self-tanners.  Follow these simple steps and you'll be on your way to having a beautiful, safer, sun-kissed glow this summer!  For more information on self-tanners, read my post, "Use Self-Tanners Like a Pro."
