Your ideal summer might consist of lying on a soft, sandy beach and enjoying an occasional dip in a stunning blue sea. In reality, it might be very different.
Work commitments or lack of funds could mean you’ve skipped out on the summer holiday this year. No golden glow for you. Just because you missed out on the holiday, it doesn’t mean you should miss out on the tan too!
Self tanners are an amazing way to get your skin looking bronzed without having to spend hours soaking up the sun. And, they are much safer for your skin! If you are heading off on holiday, remember to regularly top up on the suncare to protect your skin from those harmful UV rays.
Here are our top three tips and tricks for getting that sun-kissed glow without having to spend any time in the sun.
1. Take it slow for a natural glow
One of the most tried and tested ways to build a natural glow is to give one of our gradual tan a go. The active ingredients pigments in gradual tanners are not as strong, so it’s easy to build up a flawless golden glow that’ll have you looking like you’ve just returned from a week in the sun in no time.
Using a gradual self tanner is an easy step to add into your daily routine. While you’re in the shower, gently exfoliate your skin to remove any dry patches. Then, pat your skin dry and apply a layer of our Everyday Gradual Tanning Milk daily to moisturise the skin and create that perfect holiday glow.
2. Use GLO for a flawless finish
Once you’ve built up a sun-kissed base, take it one step further to achieve an all-over flawless finish. Get your hands on our GLO range for an instant sculpted tan. Apply to your collar bones, shoulders and forearms and gently buff with a Self Tanning Mitt for a flawless finish. You can even use this technique on your face. Focus on applying to your cheekbones, forehead and collarbones for a subtle glow.
