How to Apply Tanning Lotion. You've taken your 2 week's vacation, flown to an amazing destination, and just hit the sand of your lush surroundings. But your skin is covered 99 percent of your life, so you want to properly apply tanning lotion first to arrive with a beautiful bronze hue. Here are some tips on how to apply tanning lotion.

Wrangle a friend or family member. Unfortunately, no matter how flexible most people are, there are just certain areas on the back that can't be reached. So try and get a friend or family member to help you out. Of course, you can then return the favor.

Squirt tanning lotion into your hand. The Lotion Central and Awesome Tanning Lotions websites (see Resources below) have all the name brands at a reduced price.

Liberally and generously apply the tanning lotion all over your body. Spread it evenly and make sure to get the often-neglected back of your neck and ears. Then squirt additional lotion into your friend's hands and have her apply it to those hard-to-reach areas such as your back.

Reapply. Follow the instructions of your specific tanning lotion. Usually after a couple of hours, the tanning lotion needs to be reapplied.

Tips & Warnings

  • Try sunless tan products! They are safe and effective and will have you shades darker in a few hours. They can be found at your local pharmacy or drugstore like CVS or Rite Aid.
  • Laying in a tanning bed or tanning outdoors has been known to contribute to skin cancer. Be sure that you limit your time in such places to healthy doses based on skin type and family history. If you experience any discoloration of a mole or parts of your skin, immediately seek the counsel of a doctor.
  • Tanning lotion is different from sunscreen. Do not mistake the two. Tanning lotion's entire purpose is to help darken your skin, while sunscreen uses additives to minimize coloration of the skin from the sun.
