Let’s tan

Is it springtime let’s get a beautiful tan instantly

Now that it is getting warmer outside and we are looking forward wearing our most love dresses and skirts again we should check to status of the tan. A beautiful skirt should not be accompanied by white legs, right?  I will give you some tips for the preparation, daily care and review six different self-tan products for you.

Products from: Jo Malone, Clarins, Dior, St. Tropez

The preparation for a beautiful self-tan

Before applying any self-tan product you should exfoliate your whole body. You can use either an exfoliating glove or a body scrub. Take your time and get rid of all dead skin and excess tan.

The next step should be moisturizing. Especially knees, elbows, ankles, feet and other more dry skin parts.

For the application, I prefer to use a tanning mitt. Place the product onto the mitt and apply in circular motion. Check that you have applied the product everywhere and evenly. Use the leftovers to apply onto the hands and feets.

Let the product dry and tan. For the best results let the product react overnight.

In between of your self-tanning routine, you should keep your skin moisturized.

Self-tanning products: James, Read, Douglas, Dior, St. Tropez, Clarins

The products:

  1. Jo Malone Vitamine E Body Treatment Scrub:

    A salt and oil scrub. Leaves your skin soft and moisturized.

  2. James Read Gradual Tan Body / Medium:

    This ultra light cream is combined with a touch of self-tan. It leaves you a natural glow. You can use it every other day to build up a darker tan.

  3. Dior Bronze Self-tanning Jelly Gradual Sublime Glow:

    This self-tanning jelly smells delicious. It leaves the skin good moisturized and with a little sunkissed glow. The tan will develop step by step. You can use this product every day. I love it in the summertime when you already have a little tan and you can boost the tan a little with this product.

  4. Comodynes Self-tanning Towelette:

    Is perfect when you travel and need a quick self-tan or a refresher. The little towel is soaked with tanning lotion. You open the sachet and just start tanning.

  5. Douglas Sun Self Tanning Milk:

    This milk is easy to apply and leaves the skin with a 24h long lasting moisture. The tanning results are in a medium range. The product was tested by Öko-Test (a German consumer magazine) with very good.

  6. St. Tropez Self Tan Express:

    This tanned mousse is very easy to apply with a tanning mitt. In one hour it leaves you with a light tan, in two hours with a medium tan and three hours or more with a dark tan. By far the best product if you need darker results instantly.

  7. Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster:

    This face product does the magic trick when you like to have a little tan for your face. Mix two to three drops with your moisturizer and apply. The product gives you a natural looking, radiant tan.
