There are plenty of mitt and brush options out there, so sánh we asked tanning guru and founder of one of our favourite tanning brands, Isle of Paradise, Jules von Hep, for his advice on what to tát look for. “A mitt should not allow product to tát absorb through to tát your hands,” he said, adding that it should “evenly distribute the product” across your skin.
As for the key to tát success, Jules recommends that you “apply two coats to tát the body toàn thân and one to tát face”. And “starting at the ankles and working your way up means your tan will be dry enough to tát apply a second coat after a couple of minutes – just start again from the ankles for the second layer”.
Where your hands and feet are concerned, Jules says to tát “use what is left on the mitt” and “remember to tát wipe in between fingers and over fingernails with a damp cloth or make-up wipe after application”. Last but not least, his “favourite trick of all” is to tát “hang a towel on the back of your door and rub your wrists together (with the towel between your wrists) to tát remove those pesky tell-tale tan lines”.

If they didn’t, they were out.
