We don’t hesitate to go all out when it comes to our skincare routine – exfoliators, cleansers, toners, serums, moisturisers, eye creams and SPF often make a daily appearance. When it comes to our bodies though, we tend to overlook a good regimen. This, of course, can have detrimental effects on both the health of our skin and the quality of our tan. So, to ensure that you always maintain flawless, sunkissed skin, we’ve put together a new tanning skincare routine for the ultimate healthy glow. You can thank us later!
Step 1: Exfoliate your body
Exfoliation is the key to any good skincare routine, particularly if you tan. Not only does it buff away dead skin cells and allow your skin to better absorb the nourishing ingredients in your body skincare, but it prepares your skin for an even tan that won’t fade too quickly.
If you’re on the lookout for a great exfoliator, we’d recommend our Tan Enhancing Body Polish. As you massage it into your skin using upward circular motions, it gently removes dead cells. The result? Softer, smoother and clearer-looking skin, ready for a fresh application of fake tan. You can also use it after having applied your tan – once or twice a week – to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy.
Top tip: For best results, apply our body polish using the Exfoliating Mitt. Specifically designed to buff away dry skin, it helps to even out skin tone and create a soft, smooth canvas for a layer of fresh tan. We’d recommend exfoliating 24 hours before applying your self tanner.
