With the party season fast approaching Janice O’ Sullivan, creator of the latest self-tan SunKiss, has you covered!
SunKiss was created with the Irish skin tone in mind.
Here are some top tips for applying self-tan to ensure a perfect result every time.
Tip 1: Hair Prepare
It is important to get rid of any unwanted hair before tanning, wax 48 hours or shave 24 hours before applying. This ensures the skin has calmed and any shaving cuts have healed.
Tip 2: Scrub Up
Exfoliate to gently remove dead skin cells. For maximum exfoliation, use exfoliating gloves, working the scrub in a circular motion, leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth, which will result in an even golden colour.
Tip 3: Oil Free
Make sure your skin is free from any deodorant, moisturisers or perfumes, as they can leave traces on the skin that can cause streaking.
Tip 4: Shower Power
If you’re tanning at home and shower just before your tan application, blast your skin with cold water just before you step out of the shower. It will close all of your pores so no tan builds up, blocking your pores.
Tip 5: Dry Off
After showering, towel dry and wait 10 mins before applying your self-tan.
Tip 6: Commit to the Mitt
The mitt you choose is very important to give a streak free and even application. SunKiss tanning mitt is a luxurious, double sided, velvet tanning mitt. It’s fool proof and will glide over your skin creating a fabulous glow quickly. Spray SunKiss Tanning Mist 6-12 inches from the body in sweeping movements to achieve an even tan, or spray the tan on the SunKiss mitt and rub! Alternatively pump SunKiss Tanning Mousse onto the mitt and apply to the skin by rubbing gently and evenly which will allow the mousse to absorb, giving a flawless glow!
Tip 7: Streak Free
Make sure the area you wish to tan is covered all over with an even layer of tan.
Tip 8: Aftermath
For best results apply in the morning and leave your tan to develop for 4-6 hours before showering. Allow to completely dry before contact with clothes or hair. Wear dark, loose clothing once you have finished your application.
Tip 9: Upkeep
When showering for the first time use a gentle shower gel and pat skin dry with your towel, rubbing will scrub off the tan.
Tip 10: Finish it off
Moisturise to lock in hydration and watch your tan naturally fade leaving no patches or un-even skin tones, SunKiss tan wears really well for up to five days!
