Achieving the perfect golden glow can really be a lot harder than it looks. It's a tricky one, because you need to be equipped with the right products and tools (and patience!) And even if you’re a self-tanner pro, getting that natural glow on your face can get a little challenging. For example, if you have dry skin, they can stick to the dry patches in the most unfortunate way. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, some self-tanners might clog your pores or cause breakouts. And if you have sensitive skin, the chemicals and fragrances might cause inflammed flare-ups. And that’s not even mentioning the hazards of ending up with an orange or streaky face.
