Hi guys!! …. Okay so I’m a self tanner junky and 80% will always be wearing it! So today i thought while im sitting waiting for my tan to dry I’d share my self tanning routine with all you lovelys 🙂
Exfoliation – Its important to exfoliate so you get all dry/dead skin off! You should also shave/wax at this time to. Dont forget to moisturize to. I do this process the day before most off the time.
Application -The day of applying i only moisturize areas like my elbows, knees, wrists and ankles so them parts don’t get as dark (no body wants orange hands)
Trust me iv shared my fair experiences.
I apply my self tanner with a mit .. Starting from my legs up. I usually get my mam to do my back ..its easier than twisting and turning. You can actually buy back applicator now to.
I let that fully dry before getting dressed. I always do my tan at night so it can develop over night. You should wait at least 6-8 hours for full development .. during this time you shouldnt go near water and try not to sweat.
When I wake I usually look super dark and smell like a biscuit haha so I jump into the shower to wash the guide colour off and unleash the golden colour.
When in the shower its important not to use any harsh shower wash and make sure not to use a scrub brush!
When getting out PAT dry DO NOT RUB or your self tanner might just come off in patches.
When your nice and dry make sure to moisturize your skin. You should moistrize everyday to pro-long your tan and it will prevent it going flaky and patchy.
Soo the big question ..what tan do i use? Well iv tried my fair share of self tanners but at the moment I’m love the cocoa brown tan in the new darker shade because i love being dark. It’s a foam formula and smells amazing. It has a guide colour so its super easy for beginners. Its fool-proof. If you try it let me know what you think 🙂
See you in my next post x
