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!

Do You Have A Question About Tanning?

June Blog Post Image

Tanning can feel like a daunting experience, whether that’s booking a professional spray tan or tanning yourself at home. Therefore, this month I wanted to share with you some of the most frequently asked questions I get and give you the facts so that you can feel the most beautiful version of yourself…

Q: I have fair skin and have never tanned before, what would be a good product for me to try at home to see if I like it?

A: I would always recommend using the Sienna X Gradual Self Tan first of all. It’s like a moisturiser, so has no guide colour to it, but it’s a really great product to use as you can gradually build up the colour to your desired shade. The Sienna X Sleep Drops are also a really nice way to add a little colour to your face too! You would just apply 1-2 drops to your night cream or serum and then rub all over the face and blend into the neck area.

Q: I’m really worried that if I have a spray tan, I’ll be Orange! Can you give me any advice?

A: Spray tanning often gets a bad reputation for looking Orange and smelling of biscuits! Sienna X formulations are packed full of natural ingredients to ensure you not only look beautiful in a natural glow, but you smell good too. During a consultation, you should be asked about your skin, how well you tan naturally in the sun and what your tan is for. This then helps your therapist advise you on the perfect solution for you. Spray tans are only ever orange, if the wrong shade is applied, or if the application has been done incorrectly.

Q: What can I use at home to avoid those tell-tale signs of tanning?

A: I would always recommend Sienna X Secret Tan Primer. This helps to stop the tan being too heavily absorbed into dryer areas such as, elbows, knees, hands and feet. You would just apply and then be able to use your favourite Sienna X self tanning product over the top.

Q: Can I still get a spray tan whilst I’m pregnant?

A: I would always recommend after the first trimester (12 weeks) hormones have settled down and a spray tan would be perfectly fine to have done. It is the safest form of tanning you can have.

Q: Are Sienna X products vegan friendly?

A: Yes. All of the products within the range are all vegan friendly, cruelty free and paraben free too. If you are an extreme vegan, the only product that wouldn’t be suitable for you is the moisturiser; Radiance Body Balm as this contains a small percentage of Lanolin.

Q: Can I have a spray tan before going on holiday?

A: Absolutely you can! There’s no better feeling that glowing with confidence from the start of your holiday. You would still need to apply your SPF as the spray tan solution doesn’t contain it, but it does allow you to build up a natural tan over the top.

I hope you have found this helpful. If you have any other questions about spray tanning or self tanning, please feel free to get in touch by leaving a comment below or alternatively, you can pop over to my Facebook page.

Until next time, glow with confidence…

All You Need To Know About Self Tanning…

Self Tanning products can leave you feeling a little nervous and with so many options available, it can be hard to know which one is right for you. So, whether you are a first time self tanner or a pro, I’m here to help you discover all you need to know…

2

The One Hour Self Tan Tinted Lotion… This tan is perfect for those of you who are short of time and don’t want to sit around, waiting for your tan to develop. You can shower after just one hour and watch your tan develop further over the next 1-4 hours. Leaving you with a gorgeous light to medium tan. Depending on skin tone, results may vary.

3

Gradual Glowing Self Tan… This is perfect for enhancing your tan or creating one. It gradually builds up the colour as desired. If you like your tan a little darker, then this one can be re-applied. It also contains an anti-cellulite formula, which helps to tone and smooth the skin! I really love this product and personally, this is my favourite as you can build up the colour to get your desired result!

4

Q10 Self Tan Tinted Mist… This is a brilliant product for topping up your tan and is a “spray tan in a can”. It provides instant colour when you need it and takes up to 8 hours to fully develop. With a 360° nozzle, it makes it really easy to apply. Simply hold the can 15-20cm away from the body and spray, allow to dry before dressing. This is another real favourite of mine, it’s quick, easy and no mess! This can also be re-applied to create a darker looking result.

5

Deep Self Tan Lotion… This one has a strong instant guide colour, making it really easy to apply. It develops within 8 hours and once it’s been washed off, you will be left with flawless, deep rich colour. I would recommend this one for darker skin tones or if you like a medium to dark tan.

6

Q10 Bronzing Mousse… Like many of the products within the range, this one is an award winner! This is a dark tan mousse again with a visible guide colour for easy application. It will begin developing within 2-4 hours and should be rinsed off after 8 hours. As with the Deep Self Tan Lotion, I would recommend this one for darker skin tones that like a richer, deeper looking tan.

7

Finally, I would always recommend using Sienna X Secret Tan Primer and Luxury Tanning Mitt when applying any self-tanning product. The Primer needs to be applied to hands, elbows, knees and ankles along with any other dry areas to ensure you create a natural looking tan. The Tanning Mitt helps to create a flawless and streak free application and avoids your palms being left with a tan!

If you would like any additional information about any of the range, or you would like some tips on using any of these products at home, then I would love to hear from you, simply leave me a comment below or pop over to my Facebook page.

Happy Tanning!
