The final days of warm weather are here, but the impending cooler months doesn’t mean the end of your radiant summer skin. If you’ve (safely) developed a bit of a bronzed glow this summer – you’ll want it to last as long as possible!
Read on for our guide on how to preserve your summer glow through autumn.
There’s no better way to keep your summer glow than by lathering your limbs with intense hydration. Pre-winter you should upgrade to a sumptuous body oil or rich moisturiser and make sure you apply every single day. We’re addicted to Leonor Greyl’s oil offering, their Magnolia and Secret Huile de Beaute oils both deeply hydrate the skin and leave it with a golden sheen.
PRO TIP: Don’t use an oil or moisturiser on the day that you apply your self-tanning products, as tan works much better on clean skin.
It seems counter intuitive to exfoliate when you want to maintain a tan, but it’s important to give yourself a full body exfoliation at least once a week to remove dead and dull skin, getting your skin ready for products to come – especially if you self-tan. We love Cane & Austin’s Glycolic Scrub which contains Glycolic and Salicylic Acid giving you an at-home body treatment that leaves skin clear with and smooth.
PRO TIP: Make sure you choose a scrub which isn’t oil based as this may prevent your tan from sticking.
OPT FOR LONG-LASTING SELF-TAN
The secret to extending your tan is to create a simple ritual that’s easy to maintain. Nothing compares to Vita Liberata PHenomenal Tan - this extraordinary and long-lasting formula leaves no streaks or patches, has no nasty fake tan smell and is extremely easy to apply.
The pHenomenal tan formula moisturises the skin and conditions with marine and botanical extracts, and the bronzed glow will last up to 4 times longer than other tanning products.
PRO TIP: It’s really important to apply with a tan mitt for a truly flawless finish
DON'T FORGET YOUR FACE
Your face is the first thing that people notice about you, and a sun kissed complexion will give you that fresh from the beach glow. Because the Vita Liberata pHenomenal tan has no smell and is so incredibly fast drying, it’s subtle and you can apply makeup just a few moments after application.
For a truly radiant complexion we suggest using a Beauty Blur daily. This sheer tint primer covers, corrects and adds natural radiance for optimal skin tone. It instantly blurs imperfections and adds radiance for a flawless looking complexion. Wear alone or under makeup.
GOING OUT? BLUR IT OUT...
If you’re going out with your limbs out and want flawless glowing skin - let us introduce you to the phenomenon that is Body Blur! A light-reflective formula that bronzes as it camouflages, this skin-perfecting make up grants a gorgeous, golden gleam in seconds that leaves a healthy looking tan, while light reflective technology camouflages blemishes, veins and age spots. All the more it has no nasty fake taN smell and won’t streak or transfer. An absolute must have!
