Experts Explain How to Tan Your Back on Your Own
Want to achieve an all-over flawless tan but worried about not being able to get a streak-free finish on your back? We’ve all been there. Whether you’re growing your tan with tanning drops or applying a mousse in one swoop, reaching your back isn’t the easiest.
We’ve got all the tips you need to ensure there are no missed spots in those hard-to-reach places.
USE A SPRAY TAN MISTER
Hard-to-reach places can be made easier with a tan mister. This gets in all the areas you need it to with minimal effort, meaning you don’t have to be a contortionist to get this mist on your back.
Apply your self-tan using Tanologist 360 Spray Tan Mister! This game-changing tool works from all angles to mist skin evenly to guarantee spray tan results at home without any twisting or stretching. Simply fill the mister with Self-Tan Water and spray directly onto the skin for a fuss-free, flawless tan with no missed spots.
USE A MITT
Apply your favourite self-tan to your mitt, put your arm over your shoulder, using your other arm to support and allow you to reach further. Repeat on both sides for maximum coverage – a double-sided mitt will make this easier as you can use both sides depending on what feels easiest for you.
If you’re still having trouble, try putting your mitt on the end of a long object like a wooden spoon or clothes hanger; this can give you the little extra length that will allow you to reach any spots.
USE SELF-TAN WATER
Like the 360 Spray Tan Mister, a Self-Tan Water can be spritzed directly over your shoulder to evenly cover your skin. The lightweight mist and elongated stream allow you to reach even the trickiest of spots.
Just spritz and glow!
LET SOMEONE ELSE HAVE YOUR BACK
Live with a friend, partner, or family member? Trust them to have your back and apply for you – just remind them to blend, blend, blend for a perfect finish!
If you can wait, hold off on starting your tan until you know someone else is going to be there. It isn’t always ideal, but it is a lot easier when someone else can do it for you. Getting the perfect tan finish involves reaching all the tricky areas – including your back. Our arms aren’t designed to reach every part of our bodies. Reaching your back can be difficult, especially when you can’t see there. But by following a few tips and tricks or using products designed to make the job easier, you can get the sun-kissed glow all over without worry – so bring those backless dresses back out.
