Your new year tanning ritual

New Year, New Ritual. As the year changes, why not change your tanning habits and give your skin a glow in 2018.

We’re not really the type to make new year’s resolutions, but there is something about the calendar switching to a new year that encourages a lot of us to try and give up bad habits, or pick up new better ones. If there’s one resolution you make this year, we would suggest that it’s starting to take better care of your skin. Small daily habits quickly become rituals you swear by, and when your skin starts to show the benefits you’ll never look back. Here’s a few simple changes to make this year for better skin, and a better tanning ritual.

Drink more water

Hydrated skin is healthy skin, so in 2018 make a commitment to yourself and your skin that you will aim to drink your 2 litres of water a day. The benefits of hydrated skin are plentiful – clearer, brighter, less prone to breakouts and dry patches, not to mention the other benefits to your body like improved digestion and concentration. Hydrated skin is also an excellent base to start tanning from – so get drinking!

Use organic skin products

Take better care of your skin in 2018 and consciously choose to use organic products that nourish and care for your skin without harsh chemicals or ingredients that you can’t even pronounce. Lusso Tan products are made with organic ingredients in a luxury hydrating formula that cares for your skin as you use it. Every product is also free from parabens, sulphates and phthalates, so you don’t need to worry about adding anything questionable to your skin with your Lusso tanning ritual.


Moisturised skin is a great base for fake tan, but just make sure you are using oil-free versions as otherwise this can create a barrier which prevents your fake tan from being absorbed evenly. Your new year tanning ritual should include a daily dose of moisturisation, especially around those knees, elbows and ankles where dry patches of skin are more likely. In the harsh weather, your skin can become more sensitive, so look after it carefully.

Exfoliate weekly

Winter can be tough on skin so look after it with gentle exfoliation to remove dead skin and keep it feeling soft and smooth. Exfoliation is also a vital pre-tanning step, so if you’re still applying tan throughout the winter (and let’s be honest, why not?) never skip this step, otherwise you’ll end up with patches and an uneven finish.

Tanning ritual – your 3 steps to tanning success

This year when it comes to your fake tan, it’s time to adopt a new tanning ritual and embrace the Lusso way of doing things. Our 3 step ritual – prep, tan and boost, means you’ll always have a flawless tan, and if there’s one thing that can make you feel better in the depths of January, it’s looking like a million dollars. Prep your skin with our weightless priming mist to plump up your skin and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, tan using one of our organic tanning products (from instant to gradual) and finally, boost your tan using a touch of our shimmer powder to add luminosity and radiance to your final look. It couldn’t be easier.

So, there you have it – all you need for a year of great skin, and a beautiful tan. Have you any other skin care resolutions you would like to share with us? We would love to hear them!
