Professional Tips & Advice

Take your pick of self-tanning formulas

2 Min Read Monday 14th March 2011

From lotions to creams, sprays to mists, there are tons of ways to top up your tan!

Did you know that there’s not just one way to tan? Self tans come in various formulations and you should pick the right one for your skin.

If you’re new to the fake tan scene, you might be daunted by the shelves of products promising all manner of tanning wonders. There are all sorts of different formulations that offer various benefits, so it is important to weigh up your needs and skin type before making a choice.

Wash-off formulations or gradual tanning lotions are ideal if you want to dip your toe without fear of turning mahogany. Although it is worth remembering that modern tanning products are now more subtle than ever and it is actually quite tricky to get the application wrong if you approach it with care.

A professional spray tan is ideal if you want to ensure even coverage and a flawless looking tan. Your therapist will be able to advise you on a suitable shade for your skin and repeat applications can build a deeper tone if desired.

Cream and lotion self-tans are perhaps the most common tanning products that you’re likely to find in the beauty aisle. They are easy to apply with a tanning mitt and can also be applied to build colour gradually. To accent your colour you can always apply extra tanning formula to contour shoulders and legs and achieve definition with clever shading.

If you’re aiming for an all-over flawless look, using a smaller amount of tanning formula on your face can create a natural looking tan. We would also recommend topping up the face and hands with a tanning mist, as these tend to be areas that will fade first.

Why not try the Sienna X range of tanning products for a truly gorgeous glow? The perfect way to get a professional tan!
