’Tis the season for tans to fade and a desperate attempt to top them up ensues as we approach colder climes.
And whilst a holiday-like colour come December might look a bit bizarre, it doesn’t mean you can’t maintain a healthy winter glow.
Love Island star and glamorous girl Olivia Buckland, 25, is renowned for keeping a solid tan all year around and looking stunning as a result.
But just how does the Cocoa Brown ambassador lock in her winter glow?
The beauty revealed: “Cocoa Brown is my go-to to maintain a summer tan throughout the winter. Their 1 Hour Tan Mousse is an all-time favourite and they’ve recently launched their Miracle Mist Tanning Water, which is perfect to spritz over your face and body for a natural glow.
“Moisturising with an oil-free moisturiser and exfoliating are absolute musts before applying tan, especially with the colder weather too – it makes sure you have a smooth base and will leave you with a flawless finish every time.”
And there are other ways to lock in your winter tan.
Invest in oils
Investing in a good oil can help nourish dry winter skin whilst giving a subtle sheer glow.
Invest in one that’s packed with soothing argan oil and you’ll be on to a winner, such as the Vita Liberata Marula Self Tan Oil, £19.50.
It’s often said that a good bit of Johnson’s Baby Powder post-tan goes a long way, especially when applying it to your elbows, knees and armpits.
If you think of any areas where you might sweat then this is where to apply the powder as it prevents streaking or creasing accidents.
Make it last
There are loads of tans perfect for a winter glow, including Idéal Soleil Hydra-Bronzing self-tanning milk, Cocoa Brown’s 1 Hour Tan Dark Mousse, The Body Illuminating Tan Drops and James Read Coconut Dry Oil Tan, and many more.
So, once you’ve bought your chosen tanning product make it last by applying it once a week. As tanning expert Nichola Joss told Harper’s Bazaar: “It’s enough to keep skin looking healthy while prolonging your fake tan, but it also maintains a focus on your body, which encourages you to take better care of it.”
Do everything else first
Basically, if you’re doing something like getting a wax, a pedicure or a manicure then make sure you do all of this first before applying self-tan.
Why? well, it will help to avoid patches so, as a tip, use an electric shaver that will only remove the hair without taking your top layer of skin too.
Stock up on lemons
Weird? Yes. A good idea? Also yes. Basically self-tan be removed using lemon juice and a soft flannel and so it’s a good idea to get rid of patches that might require a little retouch.
As they say, when life gives you lemons…
