Tanning Tips From The Best!


January 13th, 2012 by Adore

Everyone has their own spray tanning tips and tricks, and although we often like to use our own methods, it is always helpful to get advice from others!  For this reason, we decided to hold a competition last year, asking our Facebook fans to tell us their very best tanning tip.  We received fantastic responses and thought it would be a waste to keep such great advice to ourselves!  Unfortunately won’t be able to share them all, however here are a select few tips that we thought you may enjoy!

  • “Because I have very blonde hair, my tip is to put moisturiser in my hair when applying the tan so that it doesn’t stick to my hair and stain it. This works so much better than a shower cap as it doesn’t create a white circle around my face.” – – Kate F
  • “I use Adore Mine Tan PH balancing spray to apply a light mist over my body after exfoliating and before I have a spray tan to achieve a longer lasting tan and more vibrant colour. I love Adore tanning products.” – – Jane L
  • “Waxing the day before!!! It is wayyy better than any type of exfoliant out there 🙂 Makes your tan last for days and it keeps you silky smooth for longer. Then I make my own body oil in a pretty jar out of olive oil and a vanilla stick, yummmy!!” – – Melanie N
  • “I use Playboy Tan Extending Daily Moisturiser. It keeps my skin looking toned, moisturised and it soaks into my skin to give a nice silky feel. I can’t live without.” – – Lauren P
  • “My secret tanning tip is to use a tanned moisturiser twice a day to make the tan last longer and also to keep my skin nice and soft!!!” – – Jodee N
  • “The secret to a fabulous tan is to use a great quality product (My favourite is California Tan). But the real secret is to always wear a terrific tan with lots of confidence and a pretty smile and you will be sure to SPARKLE!” – – Briana N
  • “To have a spray tan constantly so everyone thinks I’m tanned and beautiful always :)” – – Jenny S
  • “Don’t feel shy about going topless with only undies on!” – – Nicole S
  • “Exfoliate and moisturise your skin regularly and keep it plump by drinking lots of water.” – – Kirsty B

So there you have our select list of tips straight from other professional and regular tanners. Something that we certainly noticed from everyone’s entries was how important exfoliating and moisturising are to most people’s tanning regime.  For anyone who dares to skip these steps, we suggest you to reconsider! We hope you have enjoyed these pieces of advice and have learnt a thing or two.  We also hope everyone takes note of Briana N’s entry – wear your tan with confidence!
