SO, IT’S TIME TO TAN, AND YOU’VE COME TO FIND OUT WHAT YOU SHOULD DO TO PREPARE.
HERE IS OUR EASY FIVE STEP GUIDE FOR PREPARING YOUR SKIN FOR SELF-TANNING.
STEP ONE - EXFOLIATE
The first step is an easy one, buff away the unwanted residue on your skin such as dead skin skills and natural body oils to leave your skin fresh and primed.
STEP TWO - SHAVE
If you desire, now is the best time to shave, being careful and gentle over the areas you just exfoliated as your skin is now more sensitive. This is a good time to shave as your pores will be closed by the time you go to tan later.
STEP THREE - WASH
Hop in the shower and wash yourself with your favourite body wash to cleanse your skin to be fresh, clean and revitalised.
STEP FOUR - HYDRATE
Hydrate your freshly washed skin to prepare for your tan by using a creamy moisturiser to leave your skin nourished and prepped. Being extra generous on drier areas like your knees, elbows, hands and feet until fully absorbed into the skin. Your tan will now glide effortlessly over your body and won’t stick to dry areas that can cause uneven looking streaks.
STEP FIVE - TAN
The final step in your routine is none other than the main event. For best results we recommend following steps 1-3 at least 24 hours before you want to tan to make sure you’re applying your tan on clean, dry skin with closed pores. Use our Dark Self tan water for a fresh natural looking tan.
