Hit the pool or beach with a beautiful bronze glow- the healthy way!- thanks to tips from tanner to the stars Jule Von Hep.
PREP LIKE A PRO The ideal time to remove hair is 24 hours pre-application, but if it needs to be closer, don’t panic: “Just avoid shaving oils, which can leave a film behind, and splash with cool water after to calm the skin.”
CHOOSE YOUR HUE Choose a formula based on your desired outcome. Think in terms of vacation time: Light is what you’d look like after a weekend away, medium is a week and dark is equal to a two-week holiday!
APPLICATION 101 For an even finish, first tackle dry spots (they can grab on to color, leading to splotches) with an oil-free moisturizer and hit your hairline with lip balm. Clean palms and fingers with a micellar water-soaked makeup wipe after. I use La Mer Micellar Water. Here are some of the sunless tanners that I’ve used for a fresh summer glow!
