We’re giving you the lowdown on how to prep your skin for the ultimate Autumn GLOW!🍂
It’s all about that prep girls, how your tan looks solely depends on the base it’s been applied AKA your skin. Therefore, we want to make sure you babes have the lowdown on how to get that smooth, even GLOW UP you deserve!
We give only the best to you babes, with our tans already infused with Aloe Vera, Pro-Vit B5, Vitamin E keeping your skin hydrated after your tan has been applied, helping your tan last up to 7 days. Dry skin just isn’t an issue with us! While we make tanning as convenient as possible for our Tantastic babes, we are giving you the tips to EXCEED your tanning expectations!
Exfoliate, exfoliate and exfoliate!!
This isn’t just the usual exfoliation that you might do in the shower. Before a self-tan, you want to really make sure you get rid of any dead skin cells or any access tan that is clinging onto your skin (we feel ya girl). Use a loofah with some body scrub (sea salt-based scrubs are particularly good) to really scrub your skin until it feels revitalised. Pay particular attention to the areas of your skin that are naturally drier – elbows, heels and knees, this is also areas where tan can cling to your skin. This allows you to have a smooth fresh base for your tan to be applied so it can glide onto your skin leaving no patches.
Cleanse your skin
We all love a good cleansers on our face at the end of the day, but have you thought of using a cleanser on your body? You should use a good quality cleanser on your skin before fake tanning to make sure any impurities are removed. A good way to do this is to add some to a bath and lay back after you have exfoliated and let the cleanser work its magic. You can also use a wet cloth or flannel to make sure your skin is completely free of any dirt and dead skin cells. This means that when the tan is being applied you won’t be rubbing over any blocked pours as this can cause blackheads and that’s just not what we want for you babes.
You now want to make sure you hydrate your skin giving it that smooth finish before tan is applied. We recommend that you do this the night before a morning tan session, and then have a shower in plain water on the morning of your tan application to make sure you have washed off any moisturiser. It is important not to have moisturiser on your skin when tanning, as it can be a barrier and stop the fake tan sticking and that just wouldn’t do for our Tantastic babes!
Use Vaseline on your eyebrows and around your hairline to stop the tan bleeding into fair hair and staining blonde hair. Once you’ve applied your tan if you want to have an extra bit of glow, add some Tantastic highlight stick to your prominent features- collar bones, legs, inner and outer thighs. This will allow your glow to stand out from all the rest!
