The verdict: This product is perfect for the girl who loves to look hella bronzed on her nights out or if you’ve got a big-deal event coming up that you need to be looking and feeling your best for.
Step 2: How To Apply
The secret to the perfect tan, much like achieving the perfect makeup is getting the right base as your canvas so it’s important to ensure skin is looking prepped ready for application. Here’s how:
#1 This is a given but make sure your skin is make-up and deodorant free before you start; a blank canvas is a must.
#2 Make sure those difficult to tan (evenly) areas such as hands, elbows, knees and feet are well moisturised for an easy application leaving your skin looking buffed and babein’.
#3 You’ve all heard primers are best for a flawless base when it comes to your makeup, right? The same rule applies for tan. Luckily, not content with letting you achieve the perfect tan, Isle Of Paradise also offer a Self-Tan Prep It Priming Spray to ensure your skin better absorb your tan, resulting in a deeper and more long-lasting tan.
#4 Choose the Isle of Paradise tanning water in the shade of your choice and generously spray all over until saturated.
#5 Once applied, use a tanning mitt and gently blend to ensure a full even coverage.
#6 Baby wipe the palm of your hands, in between fingers to make sure no excess tan is left.
#7 Leave your tan to develop for 4-6 hours and then shower. Or leave overnight and wake up flawlessly glowing.
