We’re happy to help! First, shake the bottle. Then, dab your normal amount of daily moisturizer or body lotion into the palm of your hands. Twist the dropper off the tanning drops bottle, and add 8 to 10 drops to your daily moisturizer or body lotion in your hand. Mix the two products together in the palm of your hand and apply the mixture to your skin evenly. The more drops added, the deeper the tan. Allow your tan to set for 5 minutes before applying makeup or putting on clothes. Wash hands with soap right after application. Color will develop in 4-6 hours. Reapply as needed for a deeper glow. You may use every other day to maintain the tan. Carry out a patch test, as directed, 24-hours prior to application. Don’t apply to broken irritated, or hypersensitive skin.
