4 Tips For An Ultra Dark Look

4 Tips For An Ultra Dark Look - Lusso Tan

If you like a deep bronze hue when sporting your summer attire, look no further than Tinted Self-Tanning Mousse, which delivers the kind of finish dreams are made of. An ultra-dark sunless tan can be particularly obvious on some skins; however this formula is as light as it is hydrating and has been crafted to expertly adapt to the applicant’s skin tone.

Here are our 4 tips for pulling off an ultra-dark faux glow.

Look out for skin loving ingredients.

Good skincare is vital for good tanning results, and darker shades are less forgiving so opt for ingredients that will create harmony between the tan and your canvas.

The combination of Aloe Vera & Green Tea Extract in Tinted Self-Tanning Mousse fortifies and strengthens the skin’s precious moisture barrier leaving you feeling luxuriously smooth and hydrated. Furthermore, antioxidant rich Vitamins A, C & E even skin tone, boost radiance and encourage healthy cell production. Your complexion will no less than adore the TLC that comes with very application.

Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise

Opting for ultra-dark will require moisturising pre and post tan application.
Be careful to moisturise knees, elbows, hands, and feet first, and follow up with a generous mist of Perfect Primer to neutralise the skin before application.
DHA, the tanning agent in most formulas, is a naturally drying ingredient so daily skin hydration is essential to help lock in the colour. Post application, shower off in barely warm water, gently pat the skin dry and moisturise generously all over. Repeat daily.


Add Dimension

Other than poor hand application the biggest giveaway of a faux ultra-dark glow is the flat and one-dimensional finish. Add depth and luminosity by applying our Finishing Touch Skin Perfector to the forearms, chest and along the shins.  

Know When To Call It A Day.

Every skin is different when it comes to a sunless tan. Skin tones that are translucently pale who find a light tan doesn’t show up well may see better results with our new Dark or Ultra Dark shades. Likewise some skins aren’t cut out for Ultra Dark, and although Skin Perfector will help you pull it off temporarily, the tan will fade much quicker and can look uneven after just a few days.

You should test the waters with your shade choice and be very much aware that should you opt for Ultra Dark, you may only get 3 days wear, rather than the usual 5-7 days that comes with a Lusso Tan. At which stage you should remove and begin a fresh application.
