Lottie Tomlinson's Fake-Tan Routine
Tomlinson's tanning routine might seem extensive if you're not used to tanning, but trust me, all of her steps are worth it. Once a week, she uses Tanologist Self Tan Dark Mousse ($17). Once that week is over, she exfoliates away the old tan using Tanologist Self Tan Eraser and Primer, removing any buildup or patchiness. After four or five days, if the tan is starting to fade or not look so fresh, Tomlinson evens out the color in those areas with Tanologist Insta Glow (both products are only available in the UK).
I confessed to her that after I apply tan right before bed, I dust a little translucent powder to my inner elbows to ensure it doesn't rub off during the night. Thankfully, she was impressed with the tip, but also suggested I try the Tanologist Self Tan Water ($17), which avoids any transfer.
