Let us guess, you want a streak free tan that makes you look bronzed and delicious? We got you covered. Here are some tanning tips to help you get there!
First of all make sure you are freshly showered. Get rid of that dead layer of skin by exfoliating with the Bondi Sands exfoliating mitt from head to toe. Once you get out of the shower, make sure you do not put on any moisturizer or deodorant. Also make sure you are completely dry. You want your skin to be like a blank canvas, completely bare and ready to be painted. If you wish, you can put a little bit of moisturizer on your hands, feet, elbows and knees. The moisturizer will work like a barrier to the tan and by applying to those areas you will find they do not go too dark! (The tan likes to grab to these drier areas more than others)
Now that your body is prepped, find somewhere with good lighting, in front of a mirror. Being able to see where you applying will ensure you have covered and rubbed in all areas.
For an even streak free application use the Bondi Sands application mitt. Using an application mitt will also eliminate the chance of ending with tanned palms.
We have your back, so why not use our Bondi Sands back applicator to get those hard to reach places? Start in the centre of your back and work your way outwards.
Once applied you can wash the tan off after just 1 hour, but for a deeper longer lasting tan leave on your skin for up 8 hours. It really is personal choice. Sometimes we double coat when we want to be extra delicious, we wait half an hour after applying and then go again.
After showering pat yourself dry and why not try our Everyday Gradual Tanning Milk to moisturize the skin and prolong the life of your tan.
You can reapply once a week or once every two weeks. It is a personal choice and it is all about finding out what works best for you!
Once you tan don't forget to upload a picture to Instagram using the hashtag #bondisands or if you took a before photo, make a before and after picture and upload that. We have a weekly competition where we give away a product to our favourite B&A of the week. Dont forget to tag Bondi Sands!
