1. SUNLESS OR SUN?

To achieve bronzed skin without spending hours in the sun, sunless tanning is a great option to protect your skin! Look for a product with nourishing ingredients to protect and moisturize skin while also leaving behind a natural-looking tan.

2. EXFOLIATING IS KEY

Before a wax or applying self-tanner, take time to exfoliate. It’ll help free up any ingrown hairs while also helping remove dead skin to leave it prepped and ready for a tan!

3. BUT FIRST…WAXING!

To keep your glow looking its best, be sure to wax first and tan later! When performed too quickly after tanning, waxing removes colour and can leave patchy areas of skin behind. Make sure to wait approx. 24 hours after your wax, for both sunless and traditional tanning.

4. MOISTURIZE TO MAINTAIN

Keep your tan as long as possible by moisturizing daily! Our Skin Hydrating Body Lotion is perfect for replenishing moisture and leaving skin soft and smooth after waxing. For added moisture, apply our Skin Beautifying Body Oil after your tan has had time to set for healthy glowing skin that lasts!
