Prepare Your Skin
Exfoliate! Drier areas will pick up colour making your tan uneven, choose a hydrating exfoliator and concentrate on areas that are prone to dryness such as elbows and knees. For expert application:
1. Protect your hands! You want to avoid tan on the palms of your hands for an extended period of time as this will stain the skin. Try using a mitt to protect your hands from staining.
2. Use long sweep motions to apply, for a smooth even finish.
3. Be thorough, make sure you check awkward areas such as back of the legs and arms to make sure you have applied your product evenly, better yet get a friend to help!
4. To enhance your tan keep your skin moisturised and try using a tan enhancer specifically chosen to maintain your bronzed look. TryFake Bake Skin Smoothie Oil.
Which shade is for me?
Light to medium skin tones
To achieve a natural tan, think 'my skin tone but better' with Fake Bake Original Self Tanning Lotion. Adding a slight warmth to the skin without going overboard will allow your natural skin tone to shine, whilst adding a bit of depth and radiance.
Medium to dark skin tones
Now, you’re probably pretty tanned already but if you want to take it one step further you can turn to Fake Bake Xtreme Self-Tanning Gel! Choose a shade and formula that suits you. Try a subtle tone to add glow to the skin, or an extra deep tone for a super bronzed look.
The top tanner and bronzing tips from Kate Morris (Adore Beauty founder and CEO)
"Fake Bake Flawless is my absolute favourite. I go through a couple of bottles of Fake Bake Flawless each summer – all you need is two coats for a gorgeous, natural bronze. Tan at night for best results, as you can use a stronger tinted product. Avoid scrubs, like sea salt, before tanning as they can leave grains or a film on your skin. Do your face with a cream cleanser, remembering to wipe the hairline and eyebrows with a tissue afterwards."
