Lotion before Spray Tanning???
Question: Am I supposed to put lotion on my feet, elbows, knees, and hands right before i spray tan? Do i put it on top of my hands also? I also thought that lotion blocks the tan from going on your skin so wouldnt it make the tan not even in those areas?
Answer: The reason you put lotion on your elbows,feet and knees is because the skin is dryer in those places, so absorbs more DHA. That would make it darker than the rest of the skin.
If you use only a small amount and blend it in well it will create a barrier, and less solution will get through but will not make it look unnatural.
Some people have drier hands or ankles and it is a good idea to also moisturize those lightly to avoid dark patches.
