Avoid wearing socks or shoes after tanning as sweating can inhibit the development of your tan and can leave those unattractive white sock marks/lines!
Avoid applying moisturisors or deodorants after you have tanned
Avoid wearing tight clothing for at least 5 hrs
Swimming, showering, and excercise should be avoided for at least 5 hrs after tanning as this can inhibit the development of the tan
Dont shave until 12 hrs after tanning
To maintain your tan you should moisturise regularly (with an oil-free moisturiser)
Avoid long hot baths and showers as they speed up exfoliation
Pat your skin dry after a bath or shower, rubbing your skin may rub off your tan
avoid swimming pools or sea water as these can reduce your tan
Tanning Tips for Home Spray Tanning
- Shave/Wax at least 24hrs prior to tanning
- Exfoliate, shower and moisturise the night before tanning
- Dont moisturise on the day of the tan
- Dont apply deodorant or perfume as this can turn the tan green!
- Make sure you remove makeup before tanning
- Wear old/dark underwear and loose dark clothing
- Wear flip flops after the tanning
- Paint nails with clear or coloured nail varnish (this prevents staining around the nail area)

2 packs of REVLON Runway collection false stick on nails in ‘Sequins’ and ‘Starlet’. Im a fan of stick of nails, i think they are fabulous - these are really pretty nail art designs on them, I can’t wait to try them out :)
A litte look at what it looks blended on the skin....
Next is a The Body Shop eye khol in vibrant emerald. I have already got 2 of these body shop liners in black and blue. These eyeliners are nice and creamy and blend in well. I blended a little of this emerald in the bottom lash line when I was playing around with the eye trio shadows.
Next is the Garnier Caffeine Eye Roll On – treatment for dark circles. Im excited to try this as I have always suffered with dark circles...and I have tired allsorts of products but never found anything that has actually worked! I have seen this garnier product advertised a lot on TV and in magazines but never thought to buy it. I find the only way to deal with dark circles is to try and disguise them as best i can with a good concealer and light reflecting particles makeup. I shall keep you updated on how i get on with this product and whether it makes a real difference as it promises. If it does work i predict its to do with massaging action around the eyes with the metal roller ball.
I am so grateful to receive NAILS INC nail polish in the shade hans road. I have seen this shade online before and been tempted to purchase it – and i always thought it was a bright red from the pictures ive seen. However this colour is more of a pinky red shimmer. The consistency reminds me alot of Nails Inc Brighton. I absolutely adore this colour – it looks fab with my tan (fake of course!). Definitely more of a colour for summer months. This month i have pushed the pinks to the side and I have been loving dark and dirty shades of browns, purples and greys - perfect for this autumn and winter. This polish is a nice addition to my ever growing nail varnish collection :P
Hans Road on the Left (and on the nail), Brighton on the Right....
Thanks again Nicola!
