Self Tanning Routine + How To Get A Natural Looking Tan

Self Tanning Routine + How To Get A Natural Looking Tan

What I use - 

My holy grail tanning product is Liquid Gold from Bondi Sands. This is non-transferring, which means you can put your clothes on and go after letting your skin dry a few minutes. The only downside to this particular product is that the tan won't develop immediately. So, if seeing the color as you apply is a deal breaker for you, I would suggest the tanning foam. You can see where the color goes on as you apply!

Liquid Gold creates such a real "tan" color, and I love that I never end up looking orange.  Plus, it has never once rubbed off on my clothing, sheets, or furniture so thats a huge plus for me!

How I apply -

First, I start by removing all leftover tan, and even if I don't have any on my skin at the time, I always start by exfoliating really really good. Like, really good y'all. You've got to make your skin super soft if you want a natural, even tan. I use St Tropez Tan Enhancing Polish, or my absolute favorite Raw Sugar Body Scrub.

After exfoliating, shave. I do it in this order, because I will break out a little if I do it the opposite way around! Read my post here for my favorite razor and shave cream to use!

Next, you'l want to moisturize the parts of your body that tend to be the driest. I use St Tropez Tan Enhancing Moisturizer if I have that on hand, but really any body cream will do the trick! I also LOVE the Raw Sugar Body Butter.

DO NOT USE YOUR BARE HANDS TO APPLY. This is important! I use my tanning mitt. (You can use any tanning mitt you want! Start by spraying the product directly onto the mitt instead of your skin, to get a light coverage. Then, I spray the tanner directly onto my skin, farthest away from my hands, feet, knees and elbows.

Once I've got everything smoothed out and covered, I use the leftover product on the mitt and lightly swipe my elbows, knees, hands, wrists and feet. Remember, VERY LIGHTLY. Never apply product directly to your skin in those areas, always spray onto mitt or brush first or just use what is leftover on the mitt already. Tip: I use a flat top kabuki brush for my hands and feet.
