For best results when using Tantruth's The Mist, prepare your skin prior to tanning by exfoliating with The Perfectionist body scrub and ensuring difficult to tan areas such as elbows and knees are sprayed with The Primer perfecting spray. Hold the can 15â€“20cm away from your body and spray in a smooth motion, ensuring even coverage across the tanning area. If required, gently rub the tan into the skin to ensure complete coverage. Wash hands after use. For facial use, spray onto a tanning mitt or sponge, avoiding contact with the eyes and mouth. Allow tan to dry before dressing. The tan will begin to develop within 2â€“4 hours.
