It’s a known fact that the two main reasons for applying a sunless tan is to look well and feel confident. Golden skin inspires us to feel our best and on top of our game.
If you notice yourself beginning to worry about your tanning results before you even start the application chances are your skin prep and aftercare routine are in need of a serious overhaul.
To ensure your tan is pristine and long-lasting check out the 5 ways you could potentially be messing up below.
1. Using Oil Based Soaps
Oil based soaps and shower gels leave a residue on the skin that can diminish the life of your sunless tan. Instead check your ingredient labels and try to stick to natural or ph. balanced products that are gentle on the skin.
2. Doing Anything Except Rinsing In Your First Shower.
The first shower post developing time should be the water only method, which means using no soaps or shampoos! Simply rinse the skin with lukewarm water.
As for every shower after the first, you can return to your normal bathing habits!
3. Forgetting Hand & Face Upkeep
Might you need to top up on the hands and face as the week progresses? It's likely!
Your face and hands will fade the quickest, especially with a good skincare regime, so use Golden Glow Face & Hand Mist on alternate days whenever you feel you need a boost.
Being the avid weekly tanners that they are, our Lusso Girls know all the 'secrets' to a perfect tan and the first thing they look our for is the hand application. Stick with 'The Brush Method
' and you'll never have those tell tale sunless tan lines again.
4. Ignoring Exfoliation In Between Applications
Repeatedly layering tan on top of tan or mixing different formulas can cause a build up on the skin and result in blotches or weird streaks.
A fresh canvas is vital for good tanning results, and we firmly believe that removing tan is just as important as putting it on. As, Lusso girls know the cardinal rule is to bid adieu to the sunless tan every 5-7 days (no matter how flawless it remains) in order to slough away dead skin cells for a fresh application.
A truly luxurious at home selfcare routine, the iconic Lusso Tan removing Bath Bomb is packed full of organic ingredients that renew, nourish and hydrate the skin while gently removing all traces of a sunless tan.
5. Forgetting to moisturise daily
A faux tan loves being hydrated, so treat it daily. In fact one of the best ways to get the most out of a flawless tan application is to moisturise morning and night with an oil free formula.
