Ready to take your tanning routine to the next level? We're sharing all of our top tips to achieve the perfect, streak-free flawless tan.
FAKE TAN TIP 1: Prep and Prime
It’s important to make sure your skin is prepped and ready. There is nothing worse than the remains of old tan. Ensure old tan has been removed, we recommend the He-Shi Tan Remover and Primer.
This is a luxurious mousse packed full of fruit acids and enzymes that gently removes self-tan and dead skin leaving you with a blank canvas to apply a clean layer of tan. The fast-acting formula is perfect for removing stubborn tan from the elbows, knees and neck without scrubbing your skin raw. Simply leave this on for 5 minutes and shower off!
FAKE TAN TIP 2: Shave or wax at least 24 hours in advance
Professionals recommend that shaving or waxing should be carried out at least 24hrs before tanning. This means the skin has time to calm down and any cuts have healed. This step creates a fresh canvas, ready for tan application.
FAKE TAN TIP 3: Shower before you tan
If you are showering before you begin applying your tan ensure that you blast the skin with cold water just before you start. This will allow the pores on the skin to shrink ultimately avoiding the tan clogging the pores.
FAKE TAN TIP 4: Choose a shade that’s right for you
Whether you prefer a dark tan or a natural glow, we have a wide variety of formulas and shades to help you choose the perfect option for your skin type. All of our formulas are extremely hydrating and nourishing on the skin and dry instantly without transfer on to sheets and clothes!
Once you have picked your perfect He-Shi formula, we recommend applying with a mitt, starting with your legs and working your way up to the neck. Aim for a light coating and add more if you want to go for a deeper shade. Using our mousse formula use two pumps for each arm, lower and upper leg torso and chest is recommended. A great tip for tanning hands and feet is to use an old make-up brush and lightly sweep the brush over hands and feet for an even application.
FAKE TAN TIP 5: Tan your face
Many miss out this important step. We recommend using our Overnight Hyaluronic Tan Balm. This product is perfect for applying before bed and is infused with lavender to calm the body and mind. This revolutionary anti-aging skin firming tan allows you to awake with a natural golden glow. It also doubles as a make-up replacement if you prefer a natural finish on the skin with a great base colour.
FAKE TAN TIP 6: Sculpt and contour
Once your tan has achieved the desired colour, wash off the product and apply moisturiser all over to keep skin hydrated and prolong the life of your tan.
When you are happy the perfect addition to your tanning routine is our He-shi Fusion Multi Bronze. This product is the perfect addition to your make up / tanning routine. Apply this product to sculpt your face and body to reach your desired effect.
