My Tanning Routine



Unless I'm by a pool, sipping on an ice cold lemonade, baking under the sun is not my cup of tea, not to mention it's ridiculously unhealthy. I'm all about faking it, especially with the amount of tanning products on the market, it's easier than ever to get a natural looking tan in no time at all.

Step 1: Exfoliation
Scrub, scrub then scrub again. nothing messes up fake tan like dry and flakey skin. The Sugar Crush body scrub from Soap and Glory is incredible and smells good enough to eat, leaving the skin perfectly polished ready for even fake tan application.

Step 2. Tan 
The St.Tropez express tan is one of the best I've ever tried. Not only does it leave you with a gorgeous even natural looking tan, you only have to wear it for 1-3 hours before washing it off, saving your sheets and clothing from wearing the tan over night. I would also recommend using the St.Tropez tanning mitt, it's slightly more expensive than others but no tan gets through the mitt to your hand.  

I don't like using this tan on my face as it breaks me out, so instead I've been using the St.Tropez gradual tanner for your face. A lovely daily lotion with tanning agents allowing you to build up a natural looking tan.

Step 3: Maintenance 
Fake Tan has the tendency to dry the skin out, so to stop the tan from going patchy moisturise both day and night. My favourite is the Vaseline spray and go body moisturiser, they are quick and easy to apply and they absorb in seconds, none of that fannying about in your underwear for ages. Also exfoliating at least once a week is great for keeping the skin looking fresh.

The new St.Tropez in shower gradual tanner is a great top up option. There isn't enough tan in this product to compete with the tan you're already wearing, it just enhances the colour, so you can get an extra few days out of it.
