Our Top 10 Tips For The Perfect Famous Dave’s Tan

  1. If you are new to sunless tanning, use a very light coat of Famous Dave’s at first to get the hang of applying a self-tanner. For a darker tan, you may re-apply after 4-6 hours, but we recommend that you wait overnight if you are new to self-tanning. 

  2. Take a shower, making sure to use a good body scrub like our Peppermint Scrub. Dry your skin completely. Though, slightly moist would be OK. 

  3. Most Famous Dave’s Tanners look most natural when applied every 4-5 days (not every day) with the exception of Small Batch Daily, which is intended for everyday use. 

  4. Rub our tanner in smoothly and evenly while applying it in a circular motion. You really can’t rub it in too much and over rubbing (without the use of much force) is recommended to avoid streaking. 

  5. When applying on your face cover your lips with Famous Dave’s Lip Balm as a barrier lotion. 

  6. How to avoid tanning hands: Famous Dave’s tanners are formulated to neutralize tanning when hands are washed in warm soapy water for at least 30 seconds. This will remove the tanning agent from those areas if done within 10 minutes of tanner application. To avoid any possibility of tanner on your hands we highly recommend our Famous Dave’s FAME MITT - tanning application mitt. Mitts also aid in the smoothness of the tanner application. 

  7. Allow Famous Dave’s to dry before getting dressed. Depending of the product and amount used, it may take 2-5 minutes. 

  8. Avoid direct use on elbows and knees. Famous Dave’s lotions are formulated to work with other lotions as well. You may add a very small amount of our self tanning lotion to your favorite body lotion for a more natural look on knees and elbows, as well as tops of hands and feet (use it very sparingly and wait overnight before re-applying). 

  9. Famous Dave’s Tanner works great on faces as well. Just exfoliate as you did your body and apply a very light coat of tanner. We suggest starting with your forehead and working from there. Make sure you get all exposed areas (neck, behind ears, etc.) for the most natural look. Famous Dave’s Small Batch DAILY, and Fair Skin/ Face formula are our recommendations! 

  10. After you have reached your perfect tan, we recommend that you moisturize your skin often. We recommend Famous Dave’s Small Batch Daily for this.
