How To Self Tan In 3 Easy Steps

BBHB

Self tanning can feel like a daunting experience and we all crave a flawless, natural glow. Therefore, this month, I wanted to share my top tips on how you can self tan in three easy steps. Whether you want to self tan at home for the first time or prolong your glow, I’ve got some really easy tips to help you tan like a pro.

Firstly you’ll need to exfoliate your whole body, paying particular attention to hands, elbows, knees and feet. Personally I love the Sienna X Polishing Body Scrub for this. Unlike some exfoliators, this gently removes the dead skin cells, without being too abrasive which will help you create the perfect base for your self tan to be applied.

You’ll then need the Sienna X Perfect Self Tan Primer. I recommend applying this to any dry areas, such as hands, elbows, knees and feet. This will avoid your tan being too heavily absorbed and give you a beautiful finish. This is also really great to use around your hairline and on eyebrows, especially if you have fair hair.

When it comes to applying your self tan, the options can be confusing. If you are new to tanning or have fair skin, I would start off with the Sienna X Gradual Self Tan. This doesn’t have a guide colour and looks very similar to a moisturiser. You can also build up your colour to your desired shade as your confidence grows. Alternatively, you can choose from a Lotion, Mousse or Mist.

My personal favourite is the Sienna X Sleep Mousse which is also available in an express version, so you can shower off after just one hour. Take your Sienna X Tanning Mitt and apply your chosen product onto the mitt. I personally would start on my legs and just apply it in circular, sweeping motions. Your product will go quite far, so start of with a little and then you can always add more as you go. Make your way up your body until you just have hands and feet left to do. You shouldn’t need to apply fresh product to your mitt for these areas as you’ll just be able to sweep over the excess product left on your tanning mitt.

I hope this has helped, if you’d like any additional advice, please feel free to leave a comment below, or contact me over on my Facebook page.

Until next time, glow and be you!

How To Have Radiant Skin This Winter

Throughout the winter months, the colder temperatures can leave our skin feeling dehydrated which can lead to irritation and sensitivity. Therefore this month, I wanted to share 5 five easy ways you can keep your skin happy, healthy and looking radiant.

Drink Water…

I know the idea of having a hot drink on a cold day is far more appealing, but it’s just as important to keep our skin hydrated throughout the winter months as we do in the summer months. By drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day, this helps to flush out toxins, renew skin cells and helps maintain blood pressure.

Cleansing Balm…

This luxury balm removes even long wear and waterproof makeup, (making it perfect for the party season) whilst deeply cleansing away the day and removing negative traces left behind from pollution. It contains Incha Inchi Oil which hydrates and nourishes the skin. It also restructures and repairs deep down which helps to maintain youthfulness and elasticity of the skin.

Miracle Mask…

There is no better treat for your skin than this! The most revolutionising moisture hit in a mask. Natural Manuka Honey helps to retain moisture with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits, helping the skin appear instantly brighter and blemish free.

Rose Water…

The perfect duo of skincare and tanning! This lightweight and hydrating rose water, with tanning actives, allows you to build a natural, healthy looking glow. Blended with Chicory Root extract to rebalance and replenish skin, while protecting it from environmental pollution. Organic Rose extract supports the skins pH balance, hydrates and tones for a radiant healthy glow.

Skin Finish…

Ideal for the face and body, this illuminating mist instantly brightens skin making it perfect to use with or without a tan. It’s formulated with highly active moisturising and antioxidant ingredients including Green Tea to ensure skin moisture is restored.

If you would like any additional information or advice, please feel free to leave a comment below, I would love to hear from you. In the meantime, I hope you have a lovely Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

How To Make Your Holiday Glow Last Longer

Tan

With Summer holidays over and your tan fading fast, post holiday blues might be creeping in. Therefore, this month, I thought I would share with you some really easy ways you can make your holiday glow last longer.

Exfoliate regularly as this will help to remove all of the dead skin cells. This keeps your skin healthy and bright and creates the perfect base for your tan to be applied. Keep skin soft by moisturising with the gorgeous Sienna X Radiance Body Balm.

Use a Gradual Self Tan Lotion, my personal favourite is of course the amazing Sienna X Gradual Self Tan. It allows you to build up your colour gently and is packed full of hydrating ingredients that works wonders for your skin.

If you just want to add some colour to your face and neck, why not try Sienna X Sleep Tan Drops. You can add 1-2 drops to your night time moisturiser, night cream or serum and wake up feeling radiant.

To add a beautiful radiance to your skin, I cannot recommend highly enough the Sienna X Skin Finish Illuminating Mist. It enhances your skin with or without a tan and is suitable to use all over the face and body. To create a natural, dewy finish to your make up, spray lightly over the face, allow to settle and apply your make up as normal. At the end, apply a final light spritz and you’ll be good to glow.

If self tanning at home isn’t your thing, why not come and see me for a professional spray tan. I honestly believe a spray tan is so much more than a solution being applied to your skin, it’s a mindset game changer. It will have you glowing with confidence and feeling the most beautiful version of yourself.

For more information on any of the products I’ve featured this month or if you would like some advice on how to apply them, please feel free to get in touch. As always, you can leave me a comment below or pop over to my Facebook page and come and say hello.

Until next time, keep glowing!
