TIPS & TRICKS
WHETHER YOU ARE A FIRST-TIME TANNER OR A PROFESSIONAL USER, EVERYONE CAN USE A LITTLE HELPFUL TRICK OR TWO. WE HAVE SOME TO SHARE AND MAYBE YOU DO TOO! STARTING WITH BEFORE APPLICATION, TIPS FOR APPLYING A RADIATING & STREAK-FREE TAN, AND HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR BEAUTIFULLY BRONZED SKIN.
Let’s get ready to tan!
Pamper yourself a day before application. Have a relaxing shower, shave, and exfoliate to get your skin fully prepped. A good sugar scrub or exfoliant is perfect for shedding off all your dead skin.
HINT: Spend a little extra time exfoliating areas such as knees, ankles, knuckles, hands, and feet, but gently because you don’t want to cause irritation.
You should shave and exfoliate 24 hours before applying the tanner, not the day of. Shower right before application.
Once you’re clean and thoroughly dried off (make sure you are DRY), tie back your hair with a luxury scrunchie, and you are ready to apply!
HINT: To be safe, dry hair would be better before application so you have no worries about drips.
First, moisturize any dry areas & main areas that naturally gather product—for example; knees, ankles, elbows, feet, hands & knuckles. HINT: If you tend to have dry skin or random patches, moisturize the full area!
TIP: I love a light moisturizer applied to my face prior to the application regardless if I need it!
Once the moisturized area is dry, you are ready to begin!
Start application one area at a time. Spray small areas at a time so the Skinny Dip Tanning Mist does not dry while applying.
NOTE: You want the area to be freshly sprayed because if it drys or is slightly dry when trying to massage into your skin, that can cause streaks. Applying needs to be a fairly fast process.
Saturate the area with your Skinny Dip tanner until moisturized. You want to feel like you are spreading product around.
HINT: Remember this is a gradual/build-able tanner so you can always go back and re-apply after the tan has set.
Continue by gently massaging into your skin spreading evenly around the area. Kae Rae’s tanning applicator mitt is recommended for applying tanner as it is so soft to the skin and if steps are followed properly, will create an even, streak-free result.
HINT: Try not to spread strictly in an up and down motion—circle motions & front to back work best.
Spread around until there is nothing left to spread! Once feeling confident, move on to the next area. Once all areas are covered, wait at least 5-10 minutes before getting dressed.
TIP: A nice light robe is always a good idea and can be put on right away. If you have the time or style, wearing loose-fitting clothing for at least the first hour can only benefit your tan! Boyfriend style-It’s a vibe!
You will start seeing results roughly 7 -12 hours later. Again, this is a gradual tanning process. Once your tan has set, feel free to shower!
HINT: The safest time to shower is after the 12-hour mark.
TIP: We like to put it on before bedtime and shower in the morning!
Try your best to avoid liquids during the tanning process. Patience is key to having the perfect tan!
Now that you’re a pro…GO-TAN!
You want to be extra glowy and bronzed? You can repeat the application as many times as you’d like until you reach your ultimate tan. To maintain your beautifully bronzed skin, repeat application 2-3 times a week if needed or as needed.
HINT: Everyone is different when it comes to the time frame of reapplying. It all depends on you!
Using exfoliants and shaving may have an effect on your tan. (It rubs off the dead skin your tan is attached to.) Just make sure to reapply as needed if you do.
Now sit back and enjoy all your saved time babe! #ISkinnyDip
