Summer is here and we are over the moon to get outdoors for a little Vitamin D. Although it may feel good to laze about in the sun all day, the harmful UV rays will not be forgiving on our skin so the safest way to achieve a golden tan is the sunless kind! We’ve got you covered when finding the best tanning product.

Exfoliate the skin

It’s important to exfoliate your skin before using any tanning product to create a perfect base for your glowing faux tan. By using a scrub, you are removing dead skin which will keep your colour streak-free and reduce blotching. Look for nourishing formulas that are packed with natural exfoliants to work hard to smooth the skin.

Gradual tanners

If you have a little bit more time on your hands, you can try a gradual tanner which will usually come in the form of a spray or mousse. Most gradual tanners will be applied to the skin and then left to develop over a minimum of an hour then rinsed off.

Facial Self Tanner

Your body may be looking like it’s been in the tropics but don’t forget to give your face the same treatment. There are many products out there that work to complement a natural skin tone rather than overdo while giving the skin a boost of vitamins and antioxidants to combat a dull complexion.
