Fake Tan Dos and Don’ts - Tanning Drops

Do:

  • Exfoliate your face to remove dead skin cells. This will help your tan to glide on smoothly and encourage your glow to last longer.
  • If using on the body, exfoliate skin using a body brush or body scrub,.
  • For the face – mix the drops with your moisturizer to apply.
  • For the body - mix the drops with your moisturizer to apply.
  • Wash hands after applying the tan, otherwise your palms will be brown!
  • Keep skin moisturized after tanning.
  • Shower over bathing to prolong the tan on your body and pat dry rather than rub.
  • Use the Lucy Bee AHA Dazzling Tonic to remove any unwanted tan on the palms of hands, nails, etc.
  • Apply a little Lucy Bee Face Cream to nails prior to tanning to prevent staining.
  • Apply all the way up until the hair line so the tan looks natural. Keep hair back with a headband.
  • Make sure your skin is dry before applying tan.

Don't:

  • Apply any deodorant, perfume or makeup before you tan your body.
  • Wear makeup or jewelry when you do your tan.
  • Get sweaty while your tan is developing.
  • Apply tan directly to the hands and feet. Instead apply from the arm and leg and use a little tan for a natural finish.
  • Wear tight restrictive clothing straight after tanning when you’ve used the Tanning Drops on your body.
  • Use AHA or BHA exfoliants on your skin after tanning.
  • Get out of the shower and fake tan straight away. You will be hot and your pores may still be open.
  • Don’t rush. Ensure you cover every area.
