He opened up about it after receiving a comment, which read: “I’ve used a lot. I’m liking Bondi Sands at the minute, but I’m open to anything you suggest.
“I don’t think there’s any hope with my strawberry legs x”.
Jules replied: “How do you get the perfect tan on strawberry legs? Here’s how… But firstly, before we get into any application, I’m just going to say that it’s so important that you pick tan that is clean.
“That doesn’t have any parabens, loads of alcohol and also great quality DHA – that’s the ingredient that dyes your skin.
“What this means is that your tan will look good one day one, but it will also look good on day five. So you’re not going to get that tiger bread skin.
“Trust me babes, I’ve been a spray tanner for 15 years.”
He went on to explain that his top recommendation is to layer the product.
Jules said he would first use the Isle of Paradise Self-Tanning Butter or two layers on “two consecutive days” to get the best results.
He continued: “If you suffer from strawberry legs, especially when your tan is developed, I recommend showering with cold water on the legs before you apply your tan.”
Once the tan has been applied, TikTok user @julesvonhep said you should go over it with the Isle of Paradise Express tan.
In the caption, he added: “Trust me when I say, good quality tan really does make a difference to your end result”.
People flocked to the comments section to share their thoughts on his step-by-step guide.
But first, one person couldn’t help but ask: “What are strawberry legs?” to which another replied: “If you don’t exfoliate before shaving and moisturise after you end up with all red dots on your skin from open pores and it’s called strawberry legs.”
Meanwhile another person said: “I can’t believe how much you’ve transformed my tanning routine. It actually looks SO good now.”
Another shared: “The cold water tip… GENIUS”.
While a third added: “Thank you!! I’ll definitely be buying these today and trying your method! I really appreciate it!” followed by a smiling emoji.
