What Goes Wrong: Dark patches and streaks develop rather than a flawless, golden glow.
Beauty Fix: The way you apply the tanner is just as important as the shade you choose. Always remember: Tanner is attracted to dry patches of skin — especially areas like knees and elbows. The key is to exfoliate rough spots and moisturize areas prone to dryness.
And even though you avoid getting color on the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet, moisturize those areas as well — if some of the tanning liquid migrates, it can be removed more easily from moisturized skin.
