Need to know the essentials of fake tanning but don’t have the time to sift through the reams on info on the internet? Let the experts guide you with their specialist tips and industry secrets.

Here are Sienna X’s top three tips on fake tanning your skin with our award-winning products:

1. Prepare. Get your skin in the best possible condition before you open up your bottle of sunless tanner and you’ll get off on the right foot from the very start. Exfoliate at least a day before your treatment to remove dead skin cells and create a smooth base. This will ensure that your fake tan glides on easily, reducing the risk of streaks. You should also shave or wax a day before so that your open pores have time to close up before you apply product to the skin. Avoid wearing perfume and deodorant on the day itself because some of these products can prevent the skin from absorbing self tanner properly.

2. Tan. Use clever bits of kit like a tanning mitt to ensure you achieve an even, balanced-looking finish. Apply a small amount of product to the mitt and gently rub onto the skin in gentle circular motions. Add some Radiance Body Balm to your fake tan when focusing on dry areas like the elbows, knees and wrists. Allow the colour to develop and wash off in the shower.

3. Prolong. Make your sun-kissed colour last as long as possible by moisturising your skin regularly. This will slow down the skin’s natural sloughing process and boost the life span of your tan by a few days. If your tan does begin to fade you can apply quick-fix tanning products, such as Express Tanning Mist and Instant Bronzing Gel, to darken your skin. Both of these products are ideal for topping up your tan and take just moments to apply.
