Hi guys I know what you'll be thinking... Exfoliate exfoliate exfoliate believe me I do haha. Every time I tan all my pores and I mean every one like fills up black. After washing top layer of it isn't so bad but doesn't look good especially on chest and makes me feel dirty! I can't go without tanning it's every brand aswell so don't think it's the tan think it's me! When I was my tan of completely they completely go left with nice clean pores but pale skin I can't win! Does anybody have any tips or products xxx

Are you spraying yourself? Or is somebody else doing it?

Editing to add
is this a spray tan or a self tan?

Sorry should of been clearer, but yes I self tan with a spray normally but It happens with sprays tans too! Some make it worse I.e tantruth as it's really hard to shift. I tend to you the body drench quick tan! I don't think anybody notices but it's more of a thing that I feel dirty haha I find my self picking them out haha I don't have r great skin anyway but this seems to of got worse xx


Oh no don't say that I need a solution haha! Xx

Can you give us more information about what you do before tanning, for example are you showering before tanning? Do you have a set routine or does it happen no matter what you do etc...

Hi, yes is does happen whatever I do sometimes I shower right before hand sometimes not depending on where I'm going/what I'm doing etc. I exfoliate with the tan truth exfoliating scrub before hand then moisturise wait a few mins then lightly spray I build this up each day normally but when going on nights out I do 2 or 3 layers in one go but to be honest it's the same every time I have found tho it's worse if I use a lotion over a spray, like I said I don't have great skin anyway and do have big pores/oily face am I just unlucky haha?

I have a few larger very deep open pores in my chest & have the same problem, nothing I seem to do is able to stop this & because the pores are so deep if you try & squeeze it out I a left with marks & its often to deep in the pores until the tan starts to wear off. I have tried having the tan sprayed further away but nothing works, basically if u have a hole there it will fill up with fluid!!
