5 ways to make your fake tan last longer

5 ways to make your fake tan last longer
Tanning isn’t hard, but it does take time. That’s why we want you to get the most out of your tanning efforts so that you can spend less time tanning and more time looking amazing!

Want to prolong your glow? Here are our best expert tips, tricks and products for making your tan last as long as possible.

Get scrubbing

The key to a long-lasting tan starts before you even open the bottle. Prime your body for a long-lasting tan by exfoliating first. New cells exposed through exfoliation won’t shed as fast, and your tan will last longer.

Our dry body brush is perfect for this— plus it promotes skin elasticity to reduce cellulite!

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize

Fake tan and moisturized skin are a match made in heaven. Not only is it important to moisturize before tanning to stop the fake tan from sticking to any extra dry areas (such as knees), but keeping your skin hydrated will prolong your tan all over.

To keep yourself glowing for longer, moisturize every single day. Better yet, use After Glow to not only keep your skin hydrated, but extend the life of your tan.

Use only the best

Fake tanning isn’t hard, but it does take a bit of energy. So why waste that effort and energy on a subpar product?

You deserve to get the best results (and tan!) possible, and one way to guarantee that is to use a quality, long-lasting product.

Skinny Tan doesn’t use nasty ingredients like parabens or sulfates. Instead, we source our active ingredients from nature so you can get the safest, deepest and longest-lasting tan possible. Why waste money on anything less than the best? Just check out the results for yourself!

Forget the shower

Worried you’ll end up looking more butternut squash than bronzed babe? Fight the urge to jump in the shower and just let the fake tan do its thing. You might be taken aback by the deep colour that comes out of the bottle, but rest assured that that’s only there to help you see any spots you might’ve missed. It’s not necessarily your final colour.

Leave Skinny Tan on for at least five hours— minimum!

Leave it be!

So you’ve waited five hours and are ready to wash your tan off. Here’s an idea: leave it on for even longer! Leaving the tanner on much longer than five hours will actually improve the result. In fact, on some skin, five hours may not be long enough to get a really deep tan.

Don’t worry, delaying that shower won’t leave you looking like an Oompa Loompa. Our product has been designed to never over-develop, so if you can leave it on overnight, all day, or until your next shower. You will get the same natural, deep colour, but it will last longer.

Turbo-charge your tan

Skinny Tan gives you a tan so amazing you’ll never want it to fade. And with a little extra help, it doesn’t have to!

As well as After Glow, you can use our 7-Day Tanner to gradually add new depth and color to your bronzed skin. It’s an easy way to give your tan a top up in no time at all.

Whether you want an instant bronze or something that provides a gradual glow, we’ve got tanning products to suit your busy schedule and skin! Check out the full range and get ready to glow.
