Tanning expert, Jayne Cooper shares her top tips on how to get a tan at home using St.Tropez’s iconic products.
How to get a tan at home
1. Create a clean canvas
From any of the photoshoots, Fashion Weeks or celebrity tans I’ve done, I can promise you that perfecting a tan at home is easy, so long as you follow the golden rule; make sure your skin is in the best possible condition before tanning. Don’t worry, no salon required!
I recommend you exfoliate 24 hours before tanning to ensure you have a good, even base. Use our Tan Remover Mousse if you need to get rid of any traces of old tan. This also helps to prime the skin for a longer-lasting tan. Sometimes I find I need to use the Tan Remover Mitt on stubborn areas like my knees and elbows where the tan can sometimes cling.
Make sure you carry out any hair removal 24 hours before too, so that your pores are closed and sensitivity is reduced.
