Self-Tan Maintenance


If you went for a self-tan with a colour guide, make sure you're using cooler water than usual when washing it off, and do not use any scrubs or exfoliating products (stay clear of loofas!). Hot showers or baths can encourage the removal of self-tan.

After showering, pat dry with a towel rather than rubbing to make sure you are not removing your glow!

Hydration is key to a longer lasting tan so MOISTURISE, MOISTURISE, MOISTURISE! Ensuring your skin is nice and soft will result in your tan not only looking better, but also lasting longer and avoiding any patchy, dry skin.


Try to avoid using any oil-based products on your skin. These products can leave unwanted residue and will also result in your tan breaking down faster.

2-3 days after applying your tan start lightly exfoliating with our Body Polish. This will help to renew any dead skin cells as well as keeping skin soft and smooth. The colour correcting properties will also help to keep any orange tones at bay and will even out your skin tone.

Give your glow a boost throughout the week with our Gradual Tan. This will boost your colour while the moisturising lotion with Shea Butter and Caffeine will smooth and firm the skin.

You can also customise your favorite skincare products daily with our Tanning Drops. Simply mix these concentrated drops with your usual moisturiser or serum for a tailor-made, effortless glow.
