Self tanning is a process that takes good preparation. If you are not careful, you can come out looking like you were turned into an orange oompa loompa instead of looking like you just returned from a sunny beach vacation! That’s why it is important to have quality tools to help you get the glowing skin you desire. A self tanning mitt is a wonderful beauty tool to invest in. It is one of the best ways to buff the self tanner evenly into your skin. If you take care of it, it can last for several uses and you can get your money’s worth out of your mitt.
Just follow these simple steps:
1. After applying self tanning oil (We recommend our Golden Star Beauty Self tanning Lotion or Oil for a nice subtle but buildable glow!), rinse your mitt by hand with warm water.
2. Use a small amount of dish soap for any stubborn stains but avoid any hard detergents or washing powders as these can ruin the quality of your tanning mitt.
3. Gently wring out any excess water. If the water is not coming out clear, repeat step #2 until completely clean. Then lay your tanning mitt flat and reshape while it is still damp. Let it air dry.
Avoid hand washing your mitt with other articles to prevent the color from transferring onto them. Also, do not put your mitt in the washing machine as that will destroy its shape and softness. You should wash your mitt after every use so that you avoid any build-up and bacteria.
That’s it! If you follow these simple steps, depending on how often you are self tanning, your tanning mitt could last for up to 6 months or longer!
