Let’s be real for a moment. Getting a tan isn’t thaaat complicated (for most of us, at least), but getting a faux-tan to look real — now, that’s a challenge. And just when you thought you’ve perfected the application technique, you notice (or more embarrassingly, someone else notices) the streaks on your legs, buildup on your knees and elbows, strange color in between your fingers and toes, patches on your wrists … must we go on? Oh, and you missed a spot (or 10). Okay, so you don’t look like a glowing goddess just yet, but you will because we’ve managed to get this this tanning business down to a science. Follow these tips and tricks for the perfect tan — every time!
