Skinny Tan Tips for SunSense

As we get further into summer, we’ve asked Skinny Tan to share their top tanning tips – don’t forget the only way to safely tan is a fake tan! Check them out below...

1. Exfoliate first

Our number one tip is to prep your skin properly first - the better prepared your canvas is to start with, the better the end result. We suggest prepping with Skinny Tan Pre-Tan Primer as it will help remove dull, dead and older skin cells, creating a smoother surface to apply Skinny Tan to. Your tan will last longer as the new cells won’t shed so fast - massaging vigorously will also help reduce the appearance of cellulite as you prime!


2. Look for 100 percent natural tanning active or natural tanning actives

No-one should be putting chemical DHAs on their skin anymore as many tanners are available that use a tanning active that works naturally with your skin to create a far more natural looking colour. Skinny Tan uses another 100 percent natural tanning active ingredient derived from the seeds of the Brassica Napus plant. A great advantage is that our natural active doesn’t smell so strongly of that awful fake tan smell. All Skinny Tan tanners are made with this 100 percent natural tanning seed active plus they also use naturally derived guarana a well-known active that can help your skin appear firmer.


3. Choose a Tanner with an instant colour

Todays application tip is ALWAYS choose a self-tanner that has a tinted guide bronzer built in (just like Skinny Tan 7-day Tanne). The bronzing guide colour will show you exactly where you have applied the tanner so you can guarantee a 100% streak free finish - no guess work! The built in bronzer also means you are instantly brown and ready to go right out the door while your long lasting tan develops. For even easier application use the Skinny Tan. The Mitt makes it easy to blend and prevents the tanner transferring to the palms of your hands.


4. Prolong your colour and glow

To make sure your tan endures, you should apply a moisturiser. Skinny Tan After Glow Gloss is especially good because as well as keeping skin hydrated it also gives that airbrush glow effect. A great tip is to use your After Glow Gloss to highlight your new tan - for example just applying it down the front of your shins can help elongate your legs.


5. Use sun protection

The only way to safely tan is to fake tan, so make sure that you use a high factor sun protection when out and about. SunSense offers factor SPF 50+ protection against UVA and UVB rays. Don’t forget to reapply sunscreen every two to four hours and after swimming or towelling dry! Keeping your skin protected from the sun helps to protect against sun damage which may lead to skin cancer.
