How To Get A Goddess-Worthy Tan
Whether you’re a first-timer or a tanning expert, there are four secrets to a goddess-worthy tan that you need to know about if you want to achieve and maintain a smooth, patch free and bronzed glow!
My number one tip for a smoother, more even tan? Exfoliate! By scrubbing away the dead skin cells on your skin, you’ll not only create a smooth surface over which to apply your tan, but it will make your golden colour last even longer, as your tanned skin cells won’t just slough away!
If you’re not sure which exfoliator to use, I’d recommend Palmer’s® Cocoa Butter Formula® Body Scrub. Formulated with pure Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Vitamin E and natural exfoliating ingredients, it gently buffs away dead skin cells, leaving you with fresh, smooth skin.
2. Shave (If You’re Comfortable Removing Your Body Hair)
If you choose to remove your body hair, I’d also recommend that you do this after exfoliating but before you start using your gradual tanning lotion. This way, you won’t be shaving away any of the skin you’ve just tanned.
3. Moisturise And Apply Your Tanning Lotion
If you were using an instant fake tanner, you’d need to moisturise first. The beauty of Palmer’s gradual tanning lotion, though, is that it deeply moisturises your skin while gradually building a subtle tan.
Simply massage your tanning lotion into clean and dry skin, ensuring you spread it evenly across your body. Personally, I find that large, circular motions provide a smooth and streak-free finish!
4. Maintain Your Tan
As you continue to use your body lotion, your tan will gradually become darker. When you’ve created your desired tan (whether that be fair, medium or dark), switch back to a normal moisturiser. PALMER’S® Coconut Oil Formula™ Coconut Oil Body Lotion will do the trick!
Then, when your tan starts to fade and needs topping up, revert back to your Natural Bronze gradual tanning lotion. For the ultimate glow, I’d recommend using it four days a week.
And there you have it, four simple steps to keep your skin beautiful and healthy, with a natural ‘I’ve-just-been abroad’ tan!
