Alyson Hogg, CEO and Founder of Vita Liberata knows a thing or two about applying the perfect streak-free tan. Better yet, she has spent the last 6 years creating the world’s first odouless and organic tanning range (so we no longer have to smell of biscuits – horaah!).
Alyson’s also got a host of celeb clients, so if you’re in need of the perfect tan, simply follow her easy step-by-step guide to becoming a bronzed goddess…
1. Time to prep!
Make sure you prep for tanning and EXFOLIATE EXFOLIATE EXFOLIATE!
Remove those dead skin cells and smooth the skin surface for a perfectly nourished base for tanning. This will also ensure an even and long-lasting tan!
2. TOP TIP! Don’t moisturise before you tan!
Moisturising creates a barrier to tan. Vita Liberata tans contain a unique moisture-lock© system for 72 hour hydration and silky smooth, nourished skin without the need for moisturising before you tan. Let the tan do it’s work and keep your skin au natural before application!
3. Always use a tanning mitt.
Nobody wants those dreaded orange hands, so always use a tanning mitt to protect the palms of your hands and ensure a streak-free tan. Pump tan onto the mitt and apply in elongated circular movements – remembering to use sparingly on hands, feet, knees and elbows (AKA the problem areas! Yup, we’ve all been there).
4. Achieve the perfect finish!
To finish, wipe knuckles, knees, ankles, elbows and sides of feet with a slightly damp cloth. This will avoid any unnecessary tan building up in these areas. Be careful not to rub too hard though, you don’t want to rub your tan away!
Finally, use your mitt to buff any areas that need further blending. Rinse the mitt and leave it to dry naturally.
Wollah! You’re good to go. Now all you need is the perfect Summer dress to show off that tan. Visit our Vacay Shop for all the latest CB Summer styles.
