Lotions and creams have been available for years. But, you have to apply them carefully and evenly. Try a spray on version. They are easier to apply and require very little blending.
2. Exfoliate First

First, shave your legs and underarms. Exfoliate with an oil-free scrub. Rinse well and towel dry thoroughly.
3. Protect Hairline and Brows

Apply lotion to your hairline and brows. Also, cover place like elbows, knees, and heels with a light coat of lotion. This prevents dry places from absorbing too much color and end up looking blotchy.
4. Go for the Glow!

If you held the nozzle to close to your skin, you may leave drips. If this happens, gently blot the area where the drip occurred. Then re-apply the spray tan, holding the can a couple of inches further away from your skin.
7. Moisturize Daily
