Can I apply the Tanning Water with sun spots?Updated 2 months ago

Yes, you can apply the Tanning Water if you have pigmentation or sun spots and get amazing results! Due to the nature of self tanners, as your skin becomes darker, so will any existing dark spots. If you don’t mind this, then you can apply the Tanning Water as normal. 

If this is something you’d like to reduce, here are few tips to help it fade more quickly. First, you can exfoliate or scrub the spots with warm soapy water. If you have witch hazel or an astringent toner handy, try putting some on a cotton pad and buff out the extra colour.

Next time you apply, try using a wet Q-tip on your spots to remove some of the excess product so it doesn't soak in. Also if you use moisturizer on your spots before they are less likely to absorb the tanner.
