How to apply self tanner for that sun-kissed look – on demand:
- For an even tan, prep your skin with Clarins Exfoliating Body Scrub For Smooth Skin, and gently buff away flaky surface cells that can act as a barrier between your skin and sunless tanner.
- Smooth on gently, in quick strokes, using a small amount at a time.
- When applying to the face, avoid the eyebrows and hairline.
- When applying to the body, wipe off the elbows, knees, and heels, which tend to soak up more color.
- Wash hands and nails thoroughly after application.
- Allow the product to dry before dressing.
- There are many factors that can influence how long your self tanner lasts, so re-apply as often as needed, to intensify your tan or maintain the glow. A great way to keep your tan all year round is to use a product like Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster for Body that effortlessly mixes with any moisturizer for a customizable, natural-looking golden glow.
- For best results, use Clarins’ reusable, waterproof Self-Tanning Body Mitt for a smooth, perfect, streak-free application of Clarins formulas — without staining your hands.
Can I control how light or dark my sunless tan will be?
Yes, you can! Apply your product every second or third day to maintain your tan, or more often for a deeper glow. You can even add a few drops of your Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster for Face and Body to your normal moisturizer or regular body lotion for a customized tan all year round.
Why it’s important to wear sunscreen all year round
Sunlight causes skin damage to all skin types so it’s advisable to wear a sunscreen.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. One in five Americans will develop this condition before the age of 70. Applying sunscreen, daily, drastically decreases your chances of getting skin cancer – good reason to keep your favorite sunscreen at the front of your medicine cabinet!
Clarins’ range of men’s and women’s self tanners for face and body are the safest way to achieve a tanned complexion all year round. So, go ahead – treat yourself to radiant-looking skin!
