So, I’ve been using St Tropez mousse for about 2 years now and can NEVER get the knack of tanning my hands right. I do all the prep work, have read up on this and still the knuckles come out dark as do the tops of my hands. I have read about applying moisturiser (I tired this and my hands didn’t tan obviously).
Anyone have ANY tricks!?

@skyeatnight: I use a makeup sponge to apply it on my hands and use a very thin layer. I use neutrogenia micro mist spray tan. I spray it on the sponge and then apply to my hands and feet. Maybe try using a sponge and see it that works!

@weddingbound: Thank you! I have a spray mist tan. I’ll give that a go. Genius!

Before you apply the tanning lotion, apply lotion to your knuckles & anywhere else there is folded skin.
Not sure if youve done this already but it worked for me when I tried it.

I’ve never used mousse, so these tips are for spray stuff only.
I apply lotion to my knuckles and fingers first. Then I curve my fingers (like I’m about to grab a door knob) and lightly spray from my wrist to my fingers in a straight line. Since my fingers are curved, they are further away from the spray and are misted less than the back of my hand.

@weddingbound: ++1 Neutrogena spray tanning mist is the best. I dont use a sponge though, I hold the nozzle about 12 inches from my hand and spray a light layer. I find that when its rubbed in is when you run into crazy orange knuckles

@FutureMrsJohnston: It works best for me to lightly spray a sponge and blend like crazy….. I don’t get orange hands but I do use very little on hands and feet. I haven’t actually tried spraying directly bc I was afraid too but I love the stuff!! So far it’s the best I’ve tried!!

@weddingbound: I know, out of every brand I have tried it looks the most natural! I am gonna try your sponge trick.. 😉
