6 Totes Simple Tanning Hacks
We’re dreaming of fab-u-lous beaches and gorgeous tans! So in the name of #summergoals, we just extended our PS... Tanning collection. Just follow these 6 steps and get skin so golden, the sand on a Baja beach will have nothin' on your flawless sun-kissed skin.
FACT: Dry skin absorbs your self-tan, giving you dark patches (nightmare!) – so soft, supple skin is the base you need. Start by exfoliating your skin with our PS… Pro Skin Perfecting Buffing Beads, concentrating on your knees, elbows, ankles and heels. For your face, use our PS… Pro Skin Perfecting Face Mask, infused with glycolic acid and kaolin clay to remove dead skin cells.
#2 GET THE RIGHT SHADE
While we LOVE a gorgeous natural tone, nothing screams summer like a glistening bronzed babe. As tempting as it is to dive into the deep end with a dark tan, the secret to the right shade is to start with our light-to-medium tint and gradually build up for a natural finish.
#3 PICK YOUR POTION
With mousse, bronzing beads, tan water, cream...*takes breath* AND accelerator lotion, we def have you spoiled for choice. Applying your second summer skin solo? Our easy-application mousse is your beauty BFF. Getting vacay-ready with the girls? Use our skin-hydrating tanning water for a quick fix, so you can start your bae-cation ASAP.
#4 START FROM THE BOTTOM…
You made it this far: you have all the products, and your bronzed-babe #goals are in progress – time to get tanning. Use a mitt to apply the self-tan in circular motions from the bottom of your body, working your way up and saving your arms and legs for last. This bottom-to-top technique is THE difference between gorgeous glow and fake-tan fail.
#5 SHIMMER UP!
This is our fave summer product ever! For your all-over highlighter, choose from our Shimmer Oil, Bronzing Beads or Instant Tan Shimmer Oil. Rather than looking like you’ve dived into a pool of glitter (ain’t nothin' wrong with that...), you’ll look like you’ve had a dip in the ocean and lounged in the sun for a hot sec. Beau-ti-ful!
#6 ERASE THE FAILS
This product saves you major stress. Self-tanning fails are unavoidable – but you DON'T have to start over. Just grab our PS… Instant Tan Remover to get rid of any pigmentation and fix your Instant Tan look. Best part? This baby works to subtly contour, highlight and strobe your body 😱.
After this you'll def have the summer wanderlust feels. So put away your winter knits and get out your summer skirts, grab our PS Tanning goodies and get ready to flaunt some golden goddess vibes!
