NEW! 1 hour development HIT tan now available – wait just 1 hour before you shower it off!
So you’ve booked in for a pre-holiday spray tan to ensure you’ve got a gorgeous glow before you even step off the plane…
But how do you ensure it lasts for the duration of your holiday?
Here are five top tips to make sure that your glow lasts throughout your holiday:
1) It’s all about timing
Try to organise your spray tan as close to your departure date as possible.
With high quality spray tan lotions from Sienna X, your tan should last for 5-7 days and will look best for the first 4-5 days. If you’re unsure about the best shade to complement your skin tone, book a trial with your tanning consultant a couple of weeks before you leave. They can discuss your options with you and help you to decide which of the professional products from Sienna X will work best for you.
2) Pamper before you tan
To help your glow last, it’s a good idea to follow a few simple steps before having a spray tan.
Wax or shave a day or so beforehand and wash off any remaining beauty products.
Then, exfoliate your skin and avoid applying any other lotions or moisturisers.
Remember to brush your teeth before you tan or you could risk having uneven patches around your mouth.
3) Have cool showers
This should be easy, even preferable, if you’re travelling to a hot climate. Having cool showers which are not on too powerful a setting will help to keep your tan in place for longer. Afterwards,it’s best to pat your skin dry gently and apply a specialist lotion such as Sienna X Radiance Body Balm. With its combination of shea butter, vitamin E and sweet almond oil, your skin will be left healthy and hydrated and it’s small gold flecks will enhance your sun-kissed look.
4) Avoid oily lotions
Many SPFs are oil based, and it’s a well known fact that oil strips tan from the skin. To make the most of your tan on holiday, opt for an oil-free sunscreen with a 5* UVA rating allowing you to protect your skin and your tan!
5) Top it up
The best way to prolong a fake tan is to keep it going! Gradual Glowing Self Tan is the ultimate suitcase essential, try using it every 2-3 days in place of your after sun. Calming aloe vera will soothe sun scorched skin, whilst a combination of sweet almond oil and cocoa butter restores elasticity and leaves skin nourished and hydrated.
For your convenience, there is a selection of Sienna x mini products from £4, available at Natural Radiance for you to take on your hols or to trial.
