I bought a Clarisonic Plus recently which I use on the body brush function to help exfoliate while in the shower. I also use scrubby gloves from Boots. Using these definitely helps the tan to go on better when I do reapply.
I have a special foundation that I use since my 'tan' foundation is far too dark for my natural colour. As a natural redhead, I have the whitest of white skin which calls for the 'Shell' shade from Estee Lauder's Double Wear. I also have a special pale powder to set the foundation.
Since I have been wearing fake tan since 2002 (eek!) I am almost not used to me being pale, but I think I have accepted it more than I used to. I still prefer a tan though! I know it's irrational but I think I look plainer with pale skin. I try to wear more vibrant lipsticks etc to counteract this.

Which look do you prefer?
