Top tanning tips for your Wedding day
Self tan is an effective way to exude a healthy, faux glow ahead of and on a bride’s big day. With a little confidence and a few nifty tips and tricks, even the most unqualified tanners can get in on the action.
Feel your best on your special day with these golden self-tan 101s.
Tip #1: Practice makes perfect – If you’re new to tanning, do some trial and error prior to the wedding. No two formulas are the same, from foams to creams to oils and aerosols, there are so many options available. By trialling a range of products you’ll find the tan you feel most comfortable using and be able to see what looks best on your skin.
Tip #2: Use a mitt – For a believable looking tan, you’ll want to distribute the product evenly using a good quality tool like the Bondi Sands Self Tanning Mitt. Use long, sweeping motions so that any Bondi glow applies seamlessly without a streak in sight.
Tip #3: Body care – Exfoliating is essential for avoiding patchiness as it helps create a smooth base. Focus on the knees, elbows and ankles the day before tanning with a product like Bondi Sands Coconut & Sea Salt Body
Scrub. Layer on an effective moisturiser after your tanning session to keep it looking fresher for longer. The new Bondi Sands Tropical Rum Body Moisturiser has a self tan friendly formula with skin nourishing jojoba and vitamin E.
Tip#4: Top up on the big day – Wash off tans can breathe new life into a faux glow that’s a few days old. Bondi Sands range of GLO One Day Tans are the perfect top up for a fresh looking tan. With no transfer, the dress will stay white (or ivory, or cream, or alabaster…) all day long.
Tip #5: Don’t forget SPF – You still need to protect skin from the sun’s rays even with a tan. For an outdoor wedding, opt for an SPF that will keep you protected and from overheating. Bondi Sands SPORT SPF50+ range harnesses Cool Motion Technology so there’s no sweat in sight.
Bondi Sands is available at Farmers, Chemist Warehouse, Unichem and Life Pharmacies!
