Here are the three steps to priming your skin for fake tan:
Exfoliate. A day before your fake tan use an exfoliator to remove the dead skin cells that are sitting on the surface of your skin, to create a smooth base for tanner to glide over, and reveal the fresh ones. The newer your skin cells, the longer your glow will last so this step shouldn’t be missed if you want to increase the lifespan of your tan. Here’s more on the importance of exfoliating before fake tanning.
Remove cosmetics. Some of the ingredients in cosmetic products, like perfume, deodorant and moisturiser, act as barriers to fake tan and can prevent it from latching onto the skin properly. Therefore, bare skin, that’s free from fragrances, anti-perspirant and make up, is the perfect foundation for fake tan application.
Hydrate dry areas. This might sound counter intuitive to the last point but you may have to apply a touch of moisturiser to particularly dry areas of your skin before fake tanning. Skin that’s too dry can ‘soak up’ sunless tanner and leave the skin looking patchy instead of balanced from head to toe. If you need to even up the texture of your skin apply a dab of moisture to common dry spots like the elbows and ankles and blend in well so it’s fully absorbed before tanning.
Eke out your golden colour for an extra day or two with our 6 tips for boosting the lifespan of your fake tan:
Wax instead of shaving. Shaving irritates the skin and dulls a golden tan bit by bit. If you wax 24 before your tan you won’t have to get that razor out for at least a couple of weeks, helping to lengthen the lifespan of your tan and cut down on your morning shower routine.
Top up with a gradual tanner. Colour started to fade? Simply apply Sienna X Gradual Self Tan Lotion over your skin in the same way as you’d use a body moisturiser to deepen your glow for a few more days. The benefit of a gradual tanner is that develops over the course of the day and you don’t have to wash it off like a regular fake tan.
Take short showers. Long showers and hot baths will dull your golden glow because they dry out the skin quicker. Opt for quick showers and bypass long swims in chlorinated pools or salty seawater to retain your colour for as long as possible.
Use gentle shower gel and soaps. Harsh soaps and cosmetics can strip your skin of it’s caramel colour. Gentle shower balms will protect your tan and cleanse your skin without lifting away its sun-kissed warmth.
Avoid the sauna and steam room. Perspiration can cause an uneven fade off and a patchy looking tan instead of an all-over, seamless glow. Saunas and steam rooms are designed to make you sweat more so definitely avoid them if you want to prolong your tan for a few extra days.
Moisture every day! If there’s one rule you should stick to, it’s to moisturise with an oil-free product every day to lock-in your tan. Never miss this step and you’ll be guaranteed of a tan that lasts for at least a week.
