Beauty lover reveals why you should tan BEFORE shaving your legs & what happens if you don’t

HAVE you ever wondered at what stage to shave your legs during the fake tan process?

For Tiktoker Patrice McVeigh, 23, from Ireland she has got it down.

Sharing a video on Tiktok, Patrice said: "Gorgeous gorgeous girls apply fake tan BEFORE they shave their legs."

She showed off her freshly tanned legs in pink fluffy slippers and cream coloured waffle shorts and showed off her manicured nails as she held up her finger to emphasise her saying the word 'Before.'

The video has over 656k views as her 10k followers were shocked at her idea, as one asked what we were all thinking: "Does it not remove your tan tho when you shave?"


In another Tiktok on the last day of 2021 Patrice shared her process.

She began by showing her legs before showering and filming her hairy legs.

She then wrote: "I use conditioner as shaving foam don't @me," as she showed Superdrug's Black Castor & Shea conditioner, spread it on her legs and shaved them.

"Had to roll up my joggers to show you the results lol" she wrote over a video of her twirling with smooth, tanned legs, proving her theory does work.

Some commenters couldn't see how she calls her legs hairy as they wrote: "If that’s hairy legs I must be a monkey," and wrote: "she calls that hairy."

Patrice revealed she swears by: "ultra dark tanning mouse it’s the best," which could also be the secret to long-wearing tan.

Another said they: "I do this with Bondi Sands and have never had a problem! Especially with my underarms."

"Yes exfoliating properly before tan is essential" Patrice reminded fans in the comments.

She also said she uses: "Nivea rich moisturising body lotion I apply it after washing tan off it makes your skin look like glass without making you feel greasy."

Some even labelled her method a 'Game changer' and wrote: "Omg that makes so much sense now thank u."
