I’m sure everyone and their mom has given you psoriasis tips. Have you tried 100% African Shea butter with turmeric, look on Amazon, the yellow color.

Want to try but very sensitive skin. Has anyone ever broke out or had allergic reaction to loving tan?

Great video. I am one of the few guys who likes to self tan rather than use the sun's rays. Understanding the damaging effects of these rays, self tan is the best way to go to protect your skin and produce a healthy glow. I understand you struggle with psoriasis. I as well, but my magic bullet is Taltz. Have you tried a biological, e.g. Taltz, Enbrel, etc? I would be 70% covered if it were not for the biologicals. I've been clear for 15 years. :-) No adverse side affects other than the lowered immune system. You need to take special precautions to stay away from individuals who have colds, the flu, etc. I have always exercised caution. For this reason, COVID precautions were second nature to me.

Hi beautiful!! I’m a new subscriber, and I’m also a year late watching this video, LOL! 😂 You did an awesome job! Quick question, does the Nivea moisturizer have mineral oil in it? If so that would strip my self tanner, I’m curious about organic Shea butter or the Bondi sands moisturizer?

I commented under my sons name. I don't see it posted, idk what happen. The video was amazing, I watched it so many times, I've remembered what you are saying. Lmmfao. The video was amazing. Lots of great information. I followed along to thee 'T' I used dark, by loving tan. Super beginner friendly. It was my first time tanning myself & it was amazing. This Friday I tanned myself for the second time, again.. amazing. No issues, no streaks, no runs. FLAWLESS. NO ORANGE either. A beautiful golden bronzed body, & I'm a plus size. So I was so super happy. But, take my advice. Wear long pants and shirt to bed. Protect your mattress. I wore a tank top and shorts to bed. It stained my sheet, mattress, & Duval comfort that was also in a cover. The next morning I washed myself, & my sheets then quickly learned I ruined my mattress from my tan. I spent 2hrs using a carpet cleaner to remove the stain from my mattress. Take my advice, ladies. 😘✌

You are my soul sister lol. No, seriously, enjoyed your video. Great tips and process for seamless self tanning. Just got a self tanner product called Norvell Venetian Sunless Self-Tanning Mousse with Bronzer . Have you ever used? I’m really fair and can tan but don’t like or want to.

When my aunt was a child in the 40s she was sent away from her pasty skinned friend's house because her skinned appeared dirty or in reality tan. She was 100% Greek but apparently fair skin was in then. I see some women on these fake tan videos boasting of their tans and some are darker than me- But, my tan is real and won't wash off. I am attracted to fair skinned women. Living in Arizona I avoid too much sun but I'm still naturally tan, except legs don't tan good. That's not important to me.

Hey Whit, Do you ever run into issues with your self tan when you sweat? Specifically around your bra line or under your arms? If so, do you have any tips and tricks to avoid/prevent it from happening, tricks to fix the issue afterwards or products you find work better against this issue?

advice to loves: DONT DO SELF TAN OR SPRAY TAN THE DAY BEFORE OR DAY OF A BOAT PARTY!!! most boats have white upholstery on the seats and it is SO embarassing when youre feeling all sexy and tan at the party but you get up from sitting down and leave a TAN BOOTY PRINT. Trust. Tan further ahead of time

My family is Sicilian and Brazilian, so most of them have really dark skin. I've been tanning for the last two-ish years because my skin is unusually white for someone with my heritage.

Elizabeth Mendel
Elizabeth Mendel 6 months ago
Okay I don't know what I've done wrong. Bought loving tan in medium because I didn't want to go too dark too quick. Exfoliated like you recommend. Use lotion like you recommend. Let the tan sit for six hours like the directions say. Hopped into the shower and it COMPLETELY WASHED OFF. With just water. It only stuck to the underside of my upper arms near the armpit and right above the crease of my arms. The top of my feet seem to have kept a very slight color. I don't understand. A $35 self tanner should not completely wash off with just water.

So lets say you have hairy arms. Will self-tanner mousse apply well on the arms? Or, is there another self-tanner recommendation?

If you use bar soap it can contribute to bad skin (psoriasis), also over exfoliating can really dry u out.. I would use my hand with some bottles/liquid soap and just my hand, no wash rag or poufy 👍 try it for a week

Love you and your channel! I'm a first time self-tanner and just got my "loving tan" products in the mail today! What do we do between shaving/exfoliation and application? This seems to be what we should do if we are self-tanning the day of. What should we do/not do if we wait to self-tan the next day? do i moisturize? do I shower again before? hold off?

What about using an oil as a lotion, do you think that will affect the duration of the self tan? I use coconut oil as a lotion because it's all-natural. Just wondering if you've ever used an oil as a lotion and if that affected the length of your tan.
