Hey guys!! Today’s post is all about My Tanning Routine! I am a total advocate for fake tanning when it comes to sprays and mousses NOT tanning beds! As I have gotten older, I want to do everything to slow the process of aging, and keeping my skin as youthful as it can be.
The secret to my golden glow is LovingTan! LovingTan is an Australian-based tanning company. What is different about their products versus all the other tanning products is that it gives such a nice olive color tan. LovingTan mousses are green-based, which means your tan WON’T BE ORANGE, which is a no no in my book. The LovingTan mousses contain high concentrations of active ingredients that provide professional strength which means your tan will be more intense and last longer! The best part is LovingTan is made with a hydrating aloe vera base and contain naturally derived ingredients, that are enriched with vitamin extracts and powerful antioxidants!!
LovingTan has been my holy grail tanning product for years now, and I want to share with you how I achieve my perfect tan!
MY TANNING ROUTINE:
THIS IS IMPORTANT: The night BEFORE I shower, shave, and exfoliate. The reason I do all of this the night before is, if I do it the day of tanning, my pores in my body will still be open from the shower, and the tanner will leave little brown dots all over my skin, so to avoid that I do all of this the night before!
You want to shave and exfoliate the night before so your skin is prepped and ready for the tanner. Really exfoliate around the knees, elbows, hands, and feet because that is wear the tanning will stick the most, and you don’t want dry patches for the tan to cling to! My favorite exfoliating mitt is from LovingTan. There are two sides to the bit, pink and black. The black side is more abrasive than the pink, and will give you a more intense exfoliation to remove the tan or dead skin cells. I highly recommend getting this!!
The day of tanning I moisturize ONLY in the places listed below:
Knees, elbows, feet, and hands/wrist
I only moisturize here, because this is wear the tan will cling to the most automatically. By applying moisturizer, it will make sure the tanner doesn’t apply patchy in these areas, and too much tanner. Everywhere else I want to be super tan, so I don’t moisturize there until after the tanning process! When I first started tanning, I used really cheap tanning mitt, and it left streaks and just did not look good! Once I started using the LovingTan mitt, my life and tan game was changed forever! It has a velvet material that makes it so the tan will blend our smoothly and evenly, which is so important!!
The best part is you guys can use my code “noel” to receive a free tanning mitt with any LovingTan purchase!
I use about 2-3 pumps for each body part, so arm, thigh, shin, stomach, chest,and back. If you want to be darker, apply a second coat, but for me 1 coat is perfect!
