Time Saver | The Quick Self-Tanner

Need a quick, sunless tanning option to avoid spending hours under the sun, or worse yet, a tanning bed?? Get that natural, streak-less look fast with The Quick Self Tanner | Time Saver #28. Won’t rub off on clothes AND cancer free. – Marie

STEP 1

Vita Liberata Super Fine Skin Polish Image 1Exfoliate, exfoliate, and exfoliate! A streaky, patchy tan is not sexy.

Experts recommend getting rid of those dead skin cells about 8 hours before self-tanning to allow the skin’s pH balance to neutralize. The key is to choose an oil-free exfoliator so the oil doesn’t create a barrier between you and the tanner.

Try the organic Vita Liberta Super Fine Skin Polish to prep the skin. And don’t forget to give those elbows, knees, and ankles a little extra love!

OurBFF Tip: Wax, shave, and manicure the day before you scrub to minimize irritation.

 


STEP 2

Main Image - Lancôme Flash Bronzer Tinted Self-Tanning Gel with Pure Vitamin EIn just 30 mins, you can get a natural, golden tan with Lancome’s Flash Bronzer Tinter Self Tanning Gel with Vitamin D. This non-greasy formula lasts up to five days.

If you prefer a tanning oil instead, the Josie Maran Argan Liquid Gold Self Tanning Oil dries quickly with a semi-matte finish. Lightweight and organic, it’s easy to build color. Also, comes with a handy mitt to ensure you’re streak free.

To apply, always start from the bottom of your body moving up, using a teaspoon sized amount moving in curricular motions.  Make sure to wash your hands between applications.

 

And let’s not forget that face! The Radiance-Plus Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster, Main, color, No ColorGolden Glow Booster from Clarins is my all time favorite. Just add a few drops to your moisturizer / SPF, and voila! You’ll get an all day natural glow, working for even the fairest of complexions with its light weight formula.  Just don’t forget the neck and decolletage.

If you need something on the go, these Kate Somerville 360 Tanning Towlettes are lifesavers. No mess, no odor, and you’ll get color in two hours stat.

 


Get It Done. Save Time. In Style.
