Moisturizers with a small amount of self-tanner are a great way to maintain your faux tan or attain a subtle glow. They’re meant to be used every day, but Stankiewicz says you may see better results if you apply daily for the first three days, then start skipping a day between applications. “Otherwise, you’ll end up with a buildup that can lead to a patchy look,” she says. Regular self-tanner is best applied every five to seven days. If your color starts to fade sooner, do a mid-week touchup with a combo moisturizer-tanner to add a light layer of color without turning orange, Stankiewicz says.
