There’s no doubt that we’re all after the most flawless looking self tan, so having the right tanning accessories to apply it with is ESSENTIAL. You wouldn’t rock up to a job site without your tools? Well, think of this as the same thing…
We are forever grateful that we are not applying our tan with our bare hands that leave us with streaky marks and neon orange hands. Self tanning has come a long way since then, with some of the most innovative, user-friendly and easy to use self tanning accessories that are here to make your life so much easier.
So read on to find out the must have self tanning accessories that you need to achieve a flawless looking fake tan. And if you don’t have these self tan staples incorporated into your fake tan routine… don’t @ us if your tan isn’t perfect 😮💨
So, let’s dive deeper and see the 4 Tools Everyone Should Be Using When Self Tanning!
Preparation is key when it comes to the perfect self tan, which is why using exfoliating gloves is a MUST! When preparing the skin as part of your regular self tan routine, you need to exfoliate the skin with an exfoliating glove to remove any dead skin or left over tan from your previous application so that your base (that’s your skin) is smooth as can be.
The best way to scrub up is by using our Exfoliating Mitt. Made from a unique material, it’s designed to scrub away dry, uneven and flaky skin to reveal a healthy, tan-ready skin beneath.
No much of a tanner? Don’t worry, our Exfoliating Mitt is still for you! Incorporate our exfoliating mitt into your weekly shower routine, and buff the skin once to twice per week. This will keep your skin absolutely glowing, especially in the winter months and helps with dry skin, keratosis pilaris (or chicken skin) and helps minimise the appearance of stretch marks, cellulite and scars.
Flawless tan 🤝 tanning mitt
Yep, that’s right folks, you cannot achieve the perfect tan without a tanning mitt. Trust us, we’ve done the leg work and it’s not worth skipping this tanning accessory! When you’re in the application part of your self tan routine, incorporating a tanning mitt is essential for achieving a flawless application. It’s easy to use, beginner-friendly and should be an absolute staple to your self tan routine.
The best self tanning mitt, obviously, is our very own. Our mitt is designed of premium, soft material that helps tanning product glide just right over your skin and is designed to make the self tanning process easy-peasy.
You can pair our tanning mitt with either of our Eclipse Tanning Mousse or Total Eclipse Tanning Mousse. Simply pump your mousse onto the mitt and let your mitt do the talking. Use circular motions over the skin and watch our mitt glide over all your beautiful lumps and bumps, giving you a smooth and streak-free application.
Are you more of a lotion based bronzer? Our tanning mitt is still for you! Pump either your Radiant Self Tanning Lotion or Glow Gradual Tanning Moisturiser onto our mitt and watch it blend the lotion in like a dream! This is perfect for avoiding any nasty fake tan hands!
