In an interview with Redbook, Jennifer mentioned that her favorite self-tanning product is the drugstore classic, the L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Tanning Towelettes

"I like the L'Oréal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes. They're great," she said. "My confession is that [my color currently] is from the sun, with a bit of body makeup."

But even Jennifer Aniston doesn't always have a perfect tan - she recently shared a hilarious self-tanning mishap that she experienced while filming her Apple TV series, The Morning Show. 

Sharing some photos on Instagram a few months ago, the celeb posted a picture of her getting her fake tan scrubbed off by a production member.

"Note to self, hands and feet you must lotion before a spray tan, otherwise...a situation," she said, with one leg up in a sink. "This is what love is," she joked, referring to the person who was scrubbing the tan off. 

This is one of the golden (no pun intended) rules of self-tanning - make sure you have a moisturized base layer about two hours before you go in with your fake tan, whether you're applyijg at home or getting a spray tan professionally.

Luckily, there is lots of knowledge out there about how to fake-tan like a pro - and we've got some of the best tips, so even the likes of Jennifer Aniston can ensure a streak-free tan every time. 

“If you’re new to self tanning, try to make the actual tanning as easy as possible by opting for a product with a guide color,” tanning expert James Harknett told woman&home. Go for one of the best gradual tan formulas rather than anything too intense.

Convenient and easy to use, these Sublime Bronze Towelettes deliver a streak-free, natural looking tan.

“Exfoliate the morning or evening before the tanning process, as this will allow your color to develop to its darkest on the skin,” James continued when discussing how to prep for your tan. 

He then recommended sticking to simple moisturizers, or ones that are specially formulated for use when tanning.
