If you are opting for fake tan this year as a safer alternative to tanning, then you will need to make sure that you prepare your skin first. Rough, dry skin will not absorb products evenly and when you are applying tanning products, the result can be patchy and uneven.
In order to get a sun-kissed look, start by exfoliating your skin, paying particular attention to areas where the skin tends to become rough (elbows, knees etc.). Dermalogica’s Exfoliating Body Scrub or Hydro-Active Mineral Salts is ideal for sloughing away dead skin cells to leave the skin soft, smooth and prepared for maximum absorption of moisturiser.
It is always a good idea to moisturise before applying fake tan in order to ensure that the skin is as soft and smooth as possible. The Body Hydrating Cream will hydrate your skin, locking in moisture to ensure that your skin is perfectly prepared for your fake tan.
Once you are bronzed and ready to go, don’t forget to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays by using a good sun block, sunglasses and a hat; you will get the sun-kissed look you want without damaging your skin.
