The ultimate guide to fake tanning through winter

By  |  0 Comments

Just because the temperature has dropped, it doesn’t mean we have to let go of that healthy tan that helps us exude a confident glow. 

This week tanning expert, Rebecca Mone, founder of award-winning tanning brand utan provides her top tanning tips to help ensure you survive the winter months without pallid skin.

Here’s her top tips for achieving a healthy tan all year round.


Exfoliation is key


Always exfoliate and do any hair removal before you tan (preferably 24 hours prior). Be sure not to use an oil-based exfoliator as this prevents the tan from working as well


Choose the right tan



“For pale skin types, go for a tan that has a red undertone as this will mimic a real suntan and won’t go an orange/ashy colour,” Rebecca said.
“If using a mousse, always use a mitt to apply this evenly across your body. I also use a Face Halo to perfect areas such as my hands.
“As we are currently using a lot of hand sanitiser and frequently washing our hands, I would recommend using a tanning water such as utan Almond Mylk Mist to top up.”

Use a tanning water/mist over your face, bust, shins and any hard to tan areas instead of a mousse. You can also use a tanning water to set your mousse tans for a darker colour! Why not try St Moriz Professional 1 Hour Tan Mist, £4.99.
