It can be pretty tough to fake a natural-looking tan when you’ve got streaky hands.

Thankfully, the Hondrou Twins are here to help.

The pair have amassed a following of more than 56,000 TikTok users and racked up three million likes for sharing their fake tan tips and tricks.

One video saw the pair respond to a fellow viewers question, “How do you get rid of the lines on your knuckles after tanning your hands?” – and they had a pretty interesting technique.

In the clip, which has since racked up almost 500,000 views, one of the twins can be seen removing their gloves and pumping some fake tan on the back of one of their hands.

“If you’re using gloves make sure you rub in those lines [around the wrist], you can use literally any little bit of moisturiser if you want, but you don’t have to,” they explained.

Rubbing it all over the hands, they said: “The first step here is rubbing it all over your hands and rub it in like you’re rubbing in moisturiser.”

The trick is keeping your hands in a “claw” position.

They added: “Make sure your hands are constantly clawed like this, so you can rub it into the knuckles to avoid those lines, keep rubbing it in, keep making your hands look like a claw shape and they should look like this – perfect, no weird lines on those knuckles.”

Then get a wet towel and rub off your palms.

Since being posted, the video has racked up more than 37,000 likes and dozens of comments.

Whilst some people praised the tanning advice, others were weirded out by the technique, as one person said: “WTF.”

Another person commented: “Where was this when I needed it?”

“Thank you so much,” said a third.

But one person wondered: “Then what’s the point of using gloves?”

Someone else suggested using a brush for your hands and feet and a mitt for your body.
