Natural Bronze:the step-by-step guide to a perfect tan!

Bronze Natural: o guia passo-a-passo para um bronzeado perfeito!

With the arrival of good weather, it's time to take the fresh clothes out of the back of the closet, and start showing off more skin! After long months of cold, it is normal for the skin to be pale and dull. It's time to invest in extra skin care, to achieve a luminous and tanned look, naturally and safely! Come the terrace afternoons and beach days!

See our step-by-step guide to achieving a natural, luminous and perfect self-tan!

Step 1: Prepare the Skin

Before applying any product you have to prepare the skin, after all it all starts with a good foundation! In the shower, wash your skin and use an exfoliator to remove dead skin cells and leave your skin smooth and soft.

Our suggestions for you:
Body Scrub - Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub
Renaissance Body Scrub

Step 2: Hydrate

After showering it is essential to moisturize the skin to ensure that the self-tanner is evenly absorbed into the skin. Don't forget to apply an extra dose on drier areas such as elbows and knees and let the skin fully absorb the cream as it can prevent the self-tanner from adhering to the skin.

Our suggestions for you:
Body Moisturizer - Coconut Body Milk
Pomegranate and Goji Aromatic Body Lotion

Step 3: Apply the Self-Tanner

For an even application without smudges we suggest using an application glove such as the EcoTan by Sonya Self-Tanning Application Glove (2 Sides), perfect for self-tanning creams, foams or water.
Start by massaging the glove on the legs from the bottom up and go up the body, for the back an extra help always comes in handy 😉

Our favorite self-tanners:
Self Tanning Lotion - Invisible Tan
Gradual Self Tanning Lotion - Winter Skin
Self Tanning Cocoa Mousse

Step 4: Hands and Feet

The hands and feet, but also the knees and elbows, can be a little more difficult than the rest of the body. As they are drier areas, the skin has to be well hydrated to absorb the self-tanner, after applying an extra layer of moisturizer, apply the cream, mousse or water carefully so as not to leave the skin too dark.

Our suggestions for you:
Renaissance Hand and Body Cream
Hand Cream Lime Half Hand Cream
Hand Cream Arancia Hand Cream

Step 5: Maintain the Perfect Bronze

Now you have a radiant and natural skin tone, just in time for summer! But how to make the color last? The answer is simple, hydration. Use a rich body moisturizer daily and you'll see your tan last longer and your skin will of course thank you.

Our suggestions for you:
Body Moisturizer - Coconut Body Milk
Tropical Blossom Body Butter

Extra tip:

- Don't forget to apply sunscreen every day! Apply sunscreen to your face, neck, shoulders, arms, legs, hands, and anywhere on any exposed body part (even if it's overcast!). See here sunscreens for the body and sunscreens for the face .
