Golden Rules for the Perfect Tan: Exfoliate with St. Tropez Body Polish before massaging this luxurious lotion in from top to toe. Don't worry if you go over the same area twice, it's only missed areas that'll look uneven. Wait for the lotion to be absorbed before getting dressed. Use daily of a subtle golden boost to winter pale or sun tanned skin. For best results we recommend regular exfoliation with St. Tropez Body Polish.
