TANNING TIPS TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR FAKE TAN
The most important step before applying any tan is exfoliating skin to remove all excess tan and dead skin cells that build up over time. This will ensure the longevity of your tan. For best results, use our Exfoliating Mitt and replace every 3 months.
Drinking plenty of water isn’t only good for the body, but also good for the skin! The more water your consume, the more hydrated your skin is and the more flawless your tan will be for days on end.
Keeping skin hydrated with a moisturiser is key extending the life of your tan. After jumping out of the shower in the morning or night, use a rich moisturiser to feed your skin. We recommend twice daily for best results.
TOP IT UP
Keep the bronzed-glow lasting even longer with a gradual self-tanner. Our favourite Bronzing Custard contains self-tanning agent and is infused with Australian Kakadu plum, quandong, aloe vera, vitamins A & E, shea butter, luxurious botanical oils and skin firming properties your skin will love! You can also use this alone for a more natural, sun-kissed glow.
COOL IT DOWN
Hot showers and baths = dry, flakey and dehydrated skin. Make sure you're showing and bathing in cooler temperatures to keep your tan looking fresh and flawless.
