If you have an event or wedding coming up this weekend, you need to start getting organised today. YES, TODAY! Getting your skin ready to apply fake tan usually takes at least a week. We've been chatting to bBold’s Brand Manager, Louise Donaghy’s who gave us some top tanning tips.. 

  • Do not under estimate the importance of Exfoliation:

Always exfoliate your skin a day before applying Smart Mousse allowing your tan to develop on the fresh new layer of skin, this will in turn result in an even golden colour. Start gently exfoliating skin on day 4 after your tan application, this will help remove dead skin cells and ensure even fade. This will also help ensure that skin is free from tan by day 7 so that the next application is on prepped clean skin.  

An exfoliating glove combined with body scrub will provide the best results.

  • Hair Removal:

All hair removal should be carried out 24 hours prior to tanning. This ensures that the skin has desensitised and all cuts from shaving or irritations from waxing are all healed. It also allows the Smart Mousse to glide onto freshly soft and hair free legs.

  • Moisturise:

Do NOT moisturise your entire body the day of tanning – allow your skin to be completely moisturiser free as many moisturisers act as a barrier against tans. Only use moisturiser on areas of dry skin such as elbows, knees and ankles prior to application to avoid a build-up of tan to include elbows knees and ankles. To avoid the tell-tale fake tan signs around the hands, apply a rich moisturiser before application.

  • Be Confident

After applying, own it! Show off your incredible new golden glow this summer. Flaunt those flawless pins whenever you can and enjoy the feeling of being beautifully bronzed.
