Autumn days: Natural tanning for the colder months

2 Min Read Wednesday 14th October 2015

The temperature is dropping and the days are getting shorter; it’s fair to say that Autumn is well and truly upon us….

Many of us are guilty of abandoning our skincare regime during the colder months as pale, dry skin is covered with woolly layers and forgotten about until Spring comes round again.

In the colder seasons, it’s so easy to get your tan wrong by choosing too dark a shade or applying to unprepared skin. At Sienna X, we’re advocates of maintaining beautiful, glowing skin, so we’ve put together some tips to help you keep your skin at it’s best all season long.

Keep skin healthy and hydrated

It’s really important to keep on top of the basics – even if you are planning on keeping covered up until April! Exfoliate at least twice a week using Polishing Body Scrub to keep dead skin cells at bay and moisturise daily with Radiance Body Balm to ensure that your skin stays hydrated and healthy.

Choose a lighter shade of tan

In the winter, our skin naturally becomes more pale and just as you may change your foundation shade, you should also think about your tanning shade too. If you’re tanning at home, try Gradual Glowing Self Tan for a lighter application. You have the option to build this up until you reach your desired colour. For a continuous glow, apply twice a week all season.

Accentuate your glow

Whilst your day-to-day tan will remain subtle and understated, there is always the option to accentuate it should you have an upcoming party or event on your calendar. To add temporary depth to your tan, use Instant Bronzing Gel on moisturised skin to build a deeper colour. Then, simply enhance your glow with our Contour Kit for the face and use Illuminating Pencils to highlight your collarbone, shoulders and neck.

With these tips in the bag you should be poised and ready for your autumn tanning regime, but remember, if you have any questions we are always available to help! Contact us by email here, call us on 0800 131 3151 or get in touch on social media by searching @SiennaXOfficial.
