When I walk into St. Tropez expert Sophie Evans's faux-tanning booth, she gives me the once-over. Her eyes open with horror. After analyzing my streaking skin, she informs me that it's time to lay off the tanning. And this is coming from a woman who professionally spray tans celebrities for a living!
My problem? I had been sprayed only a week prior, and my tan was already coming off in spots where I sweat the most, like my cleavage and underarms. She explained that since I hadn't been properly exfoliating to gently remove the fading tan, adding more color on top would only enhance the zebra effect. So she helped me exfoliate, and the second tan was set. But before I left her office, I made sure to pick her brain on how to keep your spray tan going all Summer long. After all, why should those Jersey Shore kids have all the fun? Read on to learn what spray-tan detoxing is and why baby oil can be your best friend this season.
