Mid-February is usually the time of year where we’re all in need of a pick-me-up. Whether you’re planning a quick winter getaway, or staying home this season, a glowy, bronzed sunless tan may just be what the doctor ordered. You don’t need to expose your skin to the damaging effects of the sun to get an envious tan. COOLA has formulated a number of products designed to offer you an effortless tan without all the negatives. We’ve created a self-tanning guide that will allow you to pull off the perfect post-vacation glow we all strive to achieve!
STEP 1: Exfoliate!
Exfoliation is key for an even application. You can use a loofa, scrub or our Sunless Tan 2-In-1 Applicator/Exfoliator Mitt, which gently buffs away dead skin and other impurities with organic Sisal. Reveal smooth-as-silk skin that’s ready to get glowing!
Be careful! Some body scrubs may contain oils in them. If that’s the case, make sure you remove any trace of oil from your skin before you apply your self-tanner. Applying a self-tanning product on skin that is oily can make your tan look patchy.
STEP 2: Don’t be shy, apply!
If you want show-stopping results, apply a generous amount of your self-tanner to your entire body and/or face. For a streak-less application, use the soft side of the applicator mitt to apply the product.
STEP 3: Wash your hands!
If you choose to apply your self-tanner with your hands, make sure you wash them immediately after application. That way the inside of your hands won’t be orange and you’ll be able to fool people into thinking you just got back from a Caribbean vacation.
STEP 4: Let it dry!
We recommend letting your tan fully dry for at least 10-15 minutes to ensure no streaks or transferring to your sheets or clothes!
STEP 5: Moisturize! Moisturize! Moisturize!
Extend your bronzed glow by moisturizing your body daily. Reach for a COOLA’s Radical Recovery After-Sun Lotion, or any other body moisturizer you like!
