Have you ever wondered at what stage to shave your legs during a fake tan?
For Tiktoker Patrice McVeigh, 23, from Ireland, she got it.
Sharing a video on Tiktok, Patrice said: “Gorgeous gorgeous girls apply a fake tan BEFORE shaving their legs.”
She showed off her freshly tanned legs in fluffy pink slippers and cream-colored waffle shorts and showed off her manicured fingernails as she lifted her finger to emphasize that she was saying the word “Before.”
The video has over 656,000 views, as its 10,000 subscribers were shocked at his idea, as one of them asked them what we all thought: “Doesn’t that take away your tan when do you shave? “

In another Tiktok on the last day of 2021, Patrice shared his process.
She started out by showing off her legs before showering and filming her hairy legs.
She then wrote, “I use conditioner for shaving foam, don’t @me” as she showed Superdrug Black Castor & Shea conditioner, spread it on her legs and shaved them off.
“I had to roll up my joggers to show you the results lol,” she wrote on a video of her twirling around with smooth, tanned legs, proving her theory to work.
Some commentators couldn’t see what she calls her hairy legs as they wrote, “If these are hairy legs, I must be a monkey,” and wrote, “she calls it hairy.”
Patrice revealed that she swears by “the super dark tan mouse is the best” which could also be the secret to a long-lasting tan.
Another said: “I do this with Bondi Sands and I’ve never had a problem! Especially with my armpits.”
“Yes, exfoliating well before tanning is essential,” Patrice reminded fans in the comments.
She also said she uses: “Nivea Rich Moisturizing Body Lotion, I apply it after I wash off the tan, it makes your skin look glassy without making you feel greasy.”
Some even called his method a “game changer” and wrote, “Omg, that makes so much sense now, thank you. “
