When it comes to achieving a natural-looking, sun-kissed glow, we’ve got you covered! Follow these simple yet effective Tan Commandments for fuss-free, beautifully bronzed summer skin:
Prep for perfection by doing everything else first. Exfoliate, shave and paint your nails prior to applying your tan.
Keep it clean. Avoid moisturising prior to self-tanning so that you start with a fresh, clean base.
Don’t skip a mitt! Instead of applying the tanning product directly to your skin, dispense a pump onto our Tanning Mitt then clench your fist to spread the product out. Next, apply to your skin: this will ensure a more even application.
Bottoms up! Work the tan into your skin from your feet upwards to avoid the product applying unevenly on other areas.
Beware of dry patches. Elbows, knees, hands and feet are all prone to pick up additional product. After applying tan in these areas, gently wipe with a damp cloth to smooth the product out.
Don’t sweat it! To ensure an even result, avoid any activities which might make you sweat or get wet while your tan is developing.
Wash your hands. Once you’ve finished applying your tan, carefully wash your hands. This will prevent the product settling on your palms, knuckles and between fingers.
Tan and repeat! Build a natural looking tan by gently exfoliating any dry patches of skin and repeating application every 3-4 days.
Tan around your schedule. If there’s a special occasion coming up in your diary, Sun Drench Overnight Tanning Mousse will work best to deliver a sun-kissed glow whilst you sleep. If you’re dressing for a week of warm weather, our Summer Skin Gradual Tanning Lotion will build a natural looking, gradual tan. Caught off-guard by an unseasonably sunny day? Reach for our Instant Glow Perfecting Leg Serum to immediately bronze skin.
Now that you’ve got your tanning know-how down, there’s nothing standing in the way of you achieving your most radiant sun-free tan yet! Total tanning confidence is on the horizon - even if the sun stays behind the clouds.
