Winter often brings cold and gloomy days, and with it, the fading of that beautiful summer tan we all love. But who says we have to give up our sun-kissed radiance just because the temperature drops? You can maintain a stunning bronzed look all year round, and thanks to our innovative products self tanning is now easier than ever. In this blog, we'll explore some top winter self tan hacks using our hydrating and nourishing products that are good for your skin (as well as giving you that radiant glow!).
Winter Self Tan Hack #1: Exfoliation is Key
One of the first steps to achieving a flawless winter tan is proper exfoliation. In the winter, our skin can become dry and flaky due to the cold air and indoor heating. To ensure an even and long-lasting tan, exfoliating is essential.
Start by using our Exfoliating Mitt. This gentle exfoliating tool is perfect for removing dead skin cells, revealing a fresh canvas for your self-tanner. Focus on areas like elbows, knees, and ankles, which tend to be rougher and more prone to patchiness.
Winter Self Tan Hack #2: Moisturise Before Tanning
Dry skin can soak up self tanner unevenly, resulting in streaks and uneven colour. To avoid this, moisturise your skin before applying your tanning product of choice. Make sure your lotion is rich and hydrating and contains skin-nourishing ingredients, ensuring your skin remains supple and receptive to the tanner.
Winter Self Tan Hack #3: Layer Your Tanning Product
Achieving a natural-looking tan is all about building it up gradually. We have a variety of self-tanning products, including self-tanning mousse, lotion, and drops. To get the best results, apply a light layer of your chosen product and allow it to develop. If you desire a deeper tan, repeat the process a day or two later. This method allows you to customise your tan to your liking without going too dark too quickly.
Winter Self Tan Hack #4: Use a Tanning Mitt
To ensure a streak-free application, invest in a high-quality tanning mitt. Our Self Tanning Mitt not only helps you apply your fake tan product evenly but also protects your hands from staining. Be sure to blend the product well, especially around your joints, for a natural finish.
Winter Self Tan Hack #5: Focus on Hydration
Hydrated skin retains a tan much better than dry skin. During the winter months, it's essential to maintain your skin's moisture levels. Glow Gradual Tanning Moisturiser is perfect for this. It not only keeps your skin hydrated but also helps extend the life of your tan. Apply it daily to maintain your radiant glow.
Winter Self Tan Hack #6: Protect Your Tan
In the winter, hot baths and long showers can be harsh on your tan. To preserve your Luna Bronze tan, opt for lukewarm water and use a sulfate-free shower gel. Pat your skin dry gently with a towel, rather than rubbing, to avoid premature fading.
Winter Self Tan Hack #7: Pay Attention to Your Face
Your face is the focal point of your overall appearance. To ensure your facial tan looks as flawless as your body, choose a facial self-tanning that is right for your complexion. We have a Face Tanning Mist and Overnight Bronzing Serum that are formulated to be gentle on the sensitive skin of your face, delivering a natural, sun-kissed glow.
Winter Self Tan Hack #8: Illuminating Drops for Added Radiance
During the winter, our skin often loses its natural radiance. Our Good Night Face Tanning Drops are a game-changer in this regard. Add a few drops to your moisturizer for a subtle glow that can be customised to your desired level of luminosity.
