Moisturising is one of the best ways to make your skin look smoother and softer to the eye, and to prep skin before using a fake tan, plus it's vital in keeping your skin healthier and more protected in the sun.
Abi Cleeve, suncare expert for Ultrasun, says "Dehydrated skin is more susceptible to damage, so use a good body lotion (and face cream) regularly for two weeks before you go away."
Moisturise morning and night for at least a week before using a fake tan for the first time. Streak-free success really lies in the quality of your skin.
