The Warmest Gift Of The Holiday Season
The holiday season is finally here and after spending the last month focusing on the perfect presents for all of the important people in your life, we're reminding you not to forget about yourself. Pick out a gorgeous dress (or three!) that you'll look and feel your best in and get your holiday glow on, after all it is the warmest gift of the season. A great tan will look stunning and fill you with confidence so follow these tips for a perfect, head to toe tan to set your look off to a tee.
Take time away from the stresses of planning, wrapping and cooking to relax. Indulge yourself and prep your skin over the course of a few days with hair removal, gentle exfoliation and daily moisturising. Don’t forget to pay special attention to problem areas such as wrists, elbows, knees and feet – they’re the main culprits for dry patches. Smooth skin is the best foundation for a flawless tan.
If you’re opting for at home tanning rather than a professional spray, apply it a few days ahead of your party to avoid any last minute disasters. A sunless tan needs time to develop, so applying two days before is the optimum time.
Pick the Right Shade
This is possibly the most important rule of all! Whilst it may be tempting to go very dark, a natural look is always much more flattering and realistic. Pick a shade that works with your colouring and complexion for a sun kissed, holiday-fresh glow.
Pro tip – Don’t forget your make up. Your usual foundation might not be a match for your new tan
Ask for help
Backless dresses are popular choices at this time of year and if you’ve chosen onoe, you’ll definitely want to be golden from behind. While it can be done solo with a little bending and stretching, to avoid streaks, the best thing is to call on a helping hand to tan your back.
For the best result your tan should start with primed skin, followed by a great natural looking tan shade and then for that final dimension add highlight, contour or shimmer to really lift the tan & make it look sensational. Apply our Finishing Touch Skin Perfector which enhances skin tone and covers slight blemishes, freckles & veins. With it’s natural shade tint and instant results skin will appear healthy, glowing and perfected.
Finally we must add that no holiday look would be complete without a light dusting of Finishing Touch Shimmer to shoulders & shin bones. We love this product because it is so versatile. It can be swept along the cheekbones, collarbone, shoulders & shins for a sun kissed highlight, used as an eyeshadow or mixed with moisturiser for an all over body shimmer.
