THE ROUTINE ITSELF | FROM START TO FINISH.

1. Remove any previous tan using the Tan Eraser Exfoliating Mitt. Self-explanatory and easy to use - simply exfoliate your body in the shower using the bright pink side (the colour is just a bonus) or the black side for a stronger exfoliation. 
Top tip: I use the black side around areas where my tan seems to go slightly awry - i.e knees, elbows, wrists, wrists, wrists.


2. Once out of the shower, towel dry and apply one of the following tans:

St Tropez Every Day Body Lotion (Medium/Dark) - Beware, don't be fooled by the 'every day' strapline of this tan, it's darker than you think and I definitely couldn't apply it every day. However, if you have an event on a Saturday evening, for example, I would apply every day from Thursday night to Saturday morning. Just apply with your hands, as you would with a normal moisturiser, but make sure to wash them afterwards!

St Tropez Bronzing Mousse - A pretty standard self tanner, in my opinion. I don't think the colour pay-off of this tan is quite enough for the price paid, I much prefer the dark one personally. However, if I ran out of the tan I'm about to talk about, I'd reach for this one.

Garnier Summer Body Moisturising Lotion (Dark) - A tan for the legs, definitely. A perfect lotion consistency, which blends well, and comes in two versions - a normal (which is ideal for fairer skin) and a darker version. However, the first coat definitely does need to be washed off approximately 7/8 hours after application in order to get a seamless tan.

Sienna X Instant Bronzing Gel - A tan I used to swear by, religiously. Similar to the St Tropez Bronzing Mousse, a standard tan which needs to be applied with a mitt. 

St Tropez Every Day Moisturiser for Face - I use this sometimes, but not often. I don't like to apply fake tan on my face for the reason I don't wear liquid foundation, it feels so unnatural to me. However, I have trialled the product and it does apply just as the Every Day Body Lotion does.

3. Every day post-tan moisturise, moisturise, moisturise. Normally, I am lazy with moisturising, I find it suuuuchh a chore. However, with tan, it really is the way to make it last. Any old moisturiser will do the job!

4. When the tan begins to show signs of wear, maybe some patches in places, just use the Tan Eraser Exfoliating Mitt and start the cycle again!

A final few words:
I don't think anybody should fear the self tanner! If a tan gives you more confidence, or your pale skin is an insecurity, there's definitely a product out there for you.

P.S. It helps if you have a best friend who's as in to tanning as you are.
