Ok guys, I’m not going to lie to you, this is such a simple trick it really walks the line of being completely stupid. But it works! The age old problem of how to get fake tan on your back is one that has plagued most of us once or twice. There is like an eight inch rectangle of space that is next to impossible to reach on your own. I know this because have nearly dislocated a shoulder trying to reach it on a number of occasions.
Sure you can get your significant other to help out, but what if you’re single . . .or I dunno maybe don’t want your man-piece to see how you look naked and covered in Nutella, looking like the tan mom. Then what?
This is what I rigged up to get the job done. It’s silly. It’s simple. It works.
So it’s pretty self explanatory. Slip the tanning mitt over the head of the brush. Secure it with the hair tie and then apply your tanner to the surface of the mitt. Then just use your new contraption to spread it on your back! For me this provided just enough extra reach to get that god-forsaken unreachable area of my upper back, BUT if you need more reach you can do the same thing with one of those long handled body brushes for the shower. That’s made to help reach your back so it should be long enough for just about everyone.
Sure it’s silly, but it’s also kinda genius. I’m like the McGyver of tans.
And as always if you have any totally silly but also kinda genius tips on how to get fake tan on your back, feel free to tell us all in the comments!
