With clocks going back soon, dark nights closing in and Halloween just around the corner, Autumn is officially in full swing – and we don’t know about you, but we’re really missing our Summer glow! If you’re craving that Goddess-worthy bronzed look too, recapture your summer radiance and discover how to make your tan last longer this Autumn with these 4 simple steps.
How to make your tan last longer for a summer-worthy glow this Autumn
Step 1. Rebuild a subtle glow
As much as we’d love to have a gorgeous just-back-from-the-Bahamas tan, a subtle golden glow works best in the Autumn. We recommend using a light to medium self tan for a soft bronzed look.
Our Self Tan Purity Vitamins Bronzing Water Body Mist is a great way to tan in Autumn! Infused with Hyaluronic Acid and nourishing Vitamin C and D boosters, it instantly hydrates skin while mimicking the positive effects of the sun. Simply spritz onto skin, then blend in using an Applicator Mitt. You can expect an instant radiance boost and a week-long medium golden tan to develop over the next 4 to 8 hours.
Top Tip: The Self Tan Purity Vitamins Bronzing Water Body Mist is suitable for sensitive skin.
Step 2. Make your tan last longer
To make your tan last longer this Autumn, we recommend using a gradual tanning lotion to build your colour and prevent fade. Our Gradual Tan Classic Everyday Body Lotion is a great choice!
Its ultra-hydrating, vegan-friendly formula will keep skin moisturised for up to 48 hours, while also enhancing your tan a little more each day. Apply daily using an Applicator Mitt to maintain a light, natural-looking, sunkissed glow.
Top Tip: Remember to wash your hands after application.
Step 3. Exfoliate for an even fade
As surprising as it sounds, exfoliation is a great way to make your tan last longer and maintain your glow this Autumn.
As the weather turns cold, skin becomes dry and dehydrated. Dead cells accumulate on the surface, making your tan look less glowy. By gently buffing the skin with our Tan Enhancing Body Polish and Exfoliator and our Exfoliating Mitt, lacklustre skin is scrubbed away, revealing the bronzed glow beneath and helping your fake tan to fade more evenly.
Step 4. Don’t forget to tan your face
Tanning your body but not your face will break the illusion of a natural glow. So, we recommend creating a natural-looking medium tan with a face tanner, and then maintaining that radiance using a gradual tan face cream. Both boast nourishing and hydrating formulas that care for your skin, so you can enjoy an even healthier-looking glow.
- Our Self Tan Purity Vitamins Bronzing Water Face Serumwill give you a glowing, radiant complexion. Packed with Hyaluronic Acid, Peach Flower Extract, Green Mandarin Water and Vitamin C and D boosters, it gives you a natural-looking medium tan, while also deeply hydrating and brightening skin. Apply onto clean, dry skin, then allow your tan to develop over 4 to 8 hours.
- Our Gradual Tan Classic Everyday Face Cream then enables you to maintain that bronzed radiance. Infused with Vitamin E, it hydrates and nourishes skin, while gradually building a natural sunkissed glow. Simply apply this gentle cream instead of your daily moisturiser, making sure to wash your hands after use.
