How To Glow with Confidence This Spring…

Be Beautiful March Image

After the cold Winter months, our skin can sometimes feel a little dry and lack lustre. Which is why there is no better time to revive it. If you are new to spray tanning, you might not be aware of the benefits it has to offer, so this month, I thought I’d share how to glow with confidence this Spring…

  • A spray tan can beautifully enhance the appearance of your skin. It can also help to camouflage small scars, stretch marks and blemishes.
  • We all want to feel as healthy as possible and a spray tan gives you that feeling from the moment it’s applied. We all crave Vitamin D during the winter months, so by having regular treatments, you could have a tan all year round.

  • Sienna X spray tan solutions are packed full of natural ingredients too, including Aloe Vera, Calendula, Shea Butter and Kiwi Fruit Extract. All of these have amazing anti-ageing and moisturising properties.
  • Spray tans can actually boost your happiness, leaving you feeling fitter, healthier and more toned.

I am a firm believer that a spray tan isn’t just a solution being applied directly to your skin, I think it’s a mindset game changer. I also think we all deserve to feel beautiful and glow with confidence and I am so passionate about making my clients feel this way.

Behind The Scenes: London Spray Day With Sienna X

Be Beautiful Hair & Beauty - London Spray Day

A few weeks ago, on a wet and windy September day I headed into London to assist Sienna X’s Brand Ambassador, Carly Hobbs at a press event which was being held at Sienna X’s PR Agency, which is just off Oxford Street.

For me, there is just something about London that I love, the hustle and bustle, the sights and the fact that you are never far away from a coffee shop! Anyway I digress, as I got off the tube at Tottenham Court Road, the offices were just a short walk away (luckily the rain had stopped, so at least I wouldn’t arrive, looking like a drowned rat)

After arriving at the offices, I was greeted by Lily, who works for the PR agency. Soon after, Carly arrived and we went went downstairs to the tanning suite. It was beautifully set up full of products and Carly began to run through the schedule for the day.

Be Beautiful Hair & Beauty - Behind the Scenes

Appointments started at 2pm and would run through until 7pm. We would be tanning members of the press, magazine editors, beauty bloggers and more.

The day absolutely flew by and before I knew it, it was 7.00pm! I’d had the best day talking all things tanning and helping the press to glow, the Sienna X way! It was time to get packed up and head back to Waterloo for the journey home.

As I walked back to the tube station, I couldn’t help but have a huge smile on my face! This day had been something I’d been wanting to do for so long in more ways than one…

For those of you who know me, you’ll know that one of my fears is the underground (sorry I’m going to rephrase that, WAS one of my fears!) It had always freaked me out, for one thing, the escalators are almost vertical and secondly, I’ve always had a fear of being lost by myself, having no clue how to get back.

When I say it out loud, it sounds so ridiculous. I know hundreds of people do it every day, you may even be one of them, who literally jump on and off the tube and don’t even think about it. But for me, the story was different, However, I faced my fear and did it anyway! Sometimes you’ve just got to pull up your sparkly big girl pants, believe in yourself and do these things, right? Right!

So, in more ways than one, this will be a day that I’ll never forget! A huge thank you to Sienna X, Carly and B The Agency for having me!

Until next time, be brave and embrace every opportunity (even if it makes you want to pee your pants)!

3 Tanning Myths You Should Ignore

If you are new to spray tanning you may have heard some things that have made you think twice before booking an appointment. So, this month I wanted to share some of the most popular tanning myths I hear about and let you know the real facts…

Spray Tans Make You Look Orange…

I’m glad to say that tanning has come so far in recent years and gone are the days where “Orange” was the only shade available. With Sienna X you can be guaranteed of a natural, flawless looking tan every-time. There are only two reasons a tan can look orange and that is because the wrong shade has been applied for your skin tone or the solution been applied incorrectly.

Moisturise Your Skin On The Day Of Your Tan…

Please don’t ever do this. Moisturiser will create a barrier between your skin and the solution being applied. You should exfoliate your skin prior to having a tan to remove any dead skin cells, this will leave you with the perfect base for your self tan or spray tan to be applied. Ensure you are also free make-up, deodorant and perfume free.

Spray Tans Only Last For A Few Days…

How well your spray tan lasts is down to a few key factors. One is how well you have prepped your skin prior to your tanning appointment and the other is how well you look after it. By moisturising daily with an oil free moisturiser such as Radiance Body Balm you will be doing all you can to increase the longevity of your spray tan. Many of my clients get around 8-10 days out of their tans so correct preparation and aftercare advice absolutely key.

As a Master Sienna X Therapist, I prefer to create a bespoke tan for every client that they will not only be proud to wear, but they will feel the most beautiful version of themselves. For me, it’s about creating a natural, flawless looking glow every time!
