Winter Tanning Tips

This week I want to talk to you about Winter Tanning Tips.

If you read no further than this, know that the key to a winter tan is to GET YOUR SHADE RIGHT.

For that reason, my top tip for winter tanning is to go down a shade. In winter our skin tone is paler than in summer.  If you chose a shade too dark you will find your tan does not wear as long. Your paler skin tone can not carry the shade you wore all Summer, the tan fades much quicker and can look uneven after just a few days. I still like to use a dark lotion for nights out but I am very much aware that I may only get 3 days wear rather than the usual 5-7 days that comes with a Lusso Tan. The good news is, if you already use our Rapid Tan Mousse, you can easily adjust your shade by rinsing off sooner than would have.

I know we say it all the time but making sure you have removed all tan before reapplying is so crucial. This is easily achievable with The Bath Bomb. Relax in the bath for 15 minutes and watch your tan dissolve before your eyes, all while getting to enjoy some ‘me time’. I admit, down to my busy lifestyle, I was a ‘shower girl’ before the bath bomb, but now I love having that little bit of time for self-care each week! I also use a chemically balanced soap, exfoliate every 5-7days and highly recommend a light moisturiser containing no oil. Finally, daily use of our Perfect Primer will keep skin hydrated and in tip top condition.

Now that party season is in full swing a light dusting of Finishing Touch Shimmer to shoulders & shin bones gives the perfect festive glow. I 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.  

My sisters and I always say to perfect your tan it takes more than just coating yourself in a tanning lotion. Consider your make up application, would you expect a perfect look by applying foundation without a moisturiser beforehand or some blusher or bronzer afterwards? No? Exactly. Apply our Finishing Touch Shimmer after your chosen Lusso Tan tanning product for a truly flawless finish.
