The holiday season is upon us, and that means it's time to shine at those festive gatherings! If you're dreaming of a party-perfect tan to complement your stunning outfit, you're in the right place. We've got all the tanning intel (and products) to ensure you glow with confidencethis festive season.

How can I achieve a party-perfect tan with self-tan for the party season?

You're in luck! The first step to achieving that radiant glow is exfoliation. Before applying any self-tanner, make sure your canvas (skin) is clean and smooth. Gently exfoliate your skin to remove any dead cells, ensuring an even tan application.

 This preps your skin to absorb the self-tanner, giving you a flawless and long-lasting result.

TIP: Try using a  skin-loving tan remover scrub for the most nourished skin exfoliating experience. Your skin will thank you!



Why is exfoliation crucial for the perfect tan?

Great question! Exfoliation not only removes dead skin cells but also ensures that the self-tanner is applied to fresh, healthy skin. This helps prevent patchiness and ensures an even distribution of colour. Think of it as creating the perfect foundation for your tan masterpiece.

TIP: Pay extra attention to areas like elbows, knees, and ankles – these spots tend to be drier and may absorb more self-tanner.

What's the secret to achieving a hydrated and natural-looking tan?

Hydration is key! Opt for a  moisturizing self-tanner to keep your skin supple and glowing. Look for products that contain hydrating ingredients like aloe vera or hyaluronic acid, just like our  GlowBronze Self tanning Mousse which is also free from drying alcohol and works with any skin tone for an even, streak-free glow with NO orange tones. These not only enhance your tan but also keep your skin feeling soft and moisturised, perfect for all seasons.



How can I ensure my tan lasts throughout the holiday festivities?

To keep that glow going, make sure your skin stays hydrated. Regularly moisturise with a gentle, hydrating oil-free lotion to lock in the colour and prevent your tan from fading too quickly. Drink plenty of water to maintain your skin's overall health and radiance.

TIP: Opt for a gradual tanning moisturiser to extend the life of your tan gradually.

Are there any tricks for a quick and easy party-perfect tan?

Absolutely! If you're short on time, opt to dry your self tan instantly with  GlowDry Tan Drying Powder, allowing you to achieve a gorgeous and streak-free tan without the wait. 

TIP: Apply  GlowDry Tan Drying Powder over the tan all over your body and a little more along your neckline creases, armpits, inner thighs, and inner elbows for that flawless finish.

Can I use self-tanner on my face for a seamless tan?

Certainly! Many self-tanners like our  GlowBronze GlowDrops are formulated specifically for the face (although this can be applied too for the body), providing a natural-looking tan without clogging pores. Ensure you blend the product evenly, extending it down your neck to avoid any harsh lines. Voila – a radiant and party-ready complexion!

TIP: Mix your regular moisturiser with a small amount of  GlowBronze GlowDrops for a subtle, sun-kissed glow on your face. 

Any last-minute tips for achieving the ultimate party-perfect tan?

Of course! If you find yourself in need of a quick fix, consider using a  GlowDry Mini Powder Spray to set and dry your sticky fake tan in a flash. This helps you with a more targeted and controlled tan drying application. 



With these tips in your holiday beauty arsenal, you're ready to achieve the perfect tan for every festive occasion. Whether you're a self-tan pro or a first-timer, these tips will have you glowing with confidence. Get ready to dazzle and shine at all the holiday parties headed your way!

Remember: Exfoliate, moisturise, and stay hydrated – the secrets to unlocking your party-perfect tan!
