Glow Getter's Guide: Self-Tanning Tips for a Beautiful Bronze

Featuring Sinless Sun owner Alix Peterson

If you're feeling a little pale after spending so much of spring indoors, Alix Peterson of Sinless Sun Spray Tanning has some tips for getting the most out of your self-tanner so when you're finally able to emerge, you look perfectly sun-kissed.

Sinless Sun Ultimate Glow Bundle

The Ultimate Glow bundle ($90) has the self-tanning essentials you need to achieve that Sinless Sun Tan at home.

For the perfect quaran-tan, here are her tips:

Prepare Your Skin:

  • Exfoliate and shave the night before applying self-tanners. Avoid oily scrubs, as they might make your tan uneven.
  • Stay away from body lotions, oils, and deodorant before tanning.
  • Make sure your skin is clean, cool, and dry so you get a long-lasting color.

To Apply:

  • For best results, use a moist tanning mitt, a blending brush or even an old sock to apply the tanning product.
  • To avoid streaks, ensure your self-tanner is properly blended (meaning you don't see any separation in the liquid).
  • Apply an even layer all over your body in long, sweeping circular motions.
  • Start at your feet, working your way up the body, and apply to the arms last. 
  • Use less product on hands, feet, knees, and elbows, and wipe off any areas that are obviously dry.

Post-Application Tips:

  • Wash hands immediately after applying.
  • Wait five minutes before dressing or getting in bed.
  • Avoid contact with water or oil for eight hours to allow your tan to set.
  • To achieve the most natural-looking fade, use a water-based body lotion or cream twice daily.
