Top tips for applying and getting the most from Perfect Tan

Whether you want a lightly sun kissed colour or a deeper holiday glow, here's our top tips for application so that you can get the most from your Perfect Tan.

Step 1. Exfoliate – this will help your colour last longer, prepping your skin by sloughing away dead skin cells that are about to shed and smoothing the skin ready for a fresh application.  (Try our Invigorating Exfoliant for super soft skin)

Step 2. You can apply your Perfect Tan either in the morning or at night, whichever works best for your routine.  Apply once-twice-three times a week or every day to build up to a deeper colour.

Step 3. Because Perfect Tan contains hydrating moisturisers you do not have to apply body cream first, the only areas that may need a little moisturiser prior to applying your tan are the elbows, knees, ankles and insides of the wrist where tan will absorb quickly.   (Try our Oxygenating & Protecting Body Moisturiser)

Step 4. Begin with a small amount for the face and neck smoothing over the skin with hands and even, sweeping strokes.  To apply to the area of your back that you just can’t reach we recommend applying tan to the back of your hand and reaching around as this gives better flexibility. (Alternatively rope in a trusted partner or friend). When you have applied Perfect Tan to the entire body, wash your hands well with warm soapy water.

Step 5. Apply a small amount to the backs of your hands and smooth over with a tissue to avoid getting the tan on your palms.

Because Perfect Tan is a lightweight cream it will absorb easily therefore you can dress shortly after application. This makes it perfect to use as part of your morning skincare regime and will create a gorgeous golden glow that develops gradually throughout the day. It also has the added benefit of SPF15 to safeguard against UVA/UVB rays.
