Self-Tanning Snafu Solved!

Posted Tuesday May 27, 2014 1:10 PM GMT

We’ve all seen the unfortunate ‘Oompa Loompa” effect that self-tanning can lead to, but even if you avoid the orange face it can be difficult to pull off beautiful bronze hands.

Thanks to a Fashionista tip from Suvara founder Anna Stankiewicz, there’s a cheap and easy way to avoid nasty kneecaps and gnarly wrists.

Ms. Stankiewicz suggests using a small foam brush to blend the areas where the tanning solution could tend to congregate and cause uneven coloring.

She also notes, "Use nail polish remover to get rid of small areas of self-tanner hyperpigmentation or to fade certain areas. Obviously nail polish remover can be a bit harsh, so test an area first."

Happy (self) tanning everyone!
