The best tips for a year round tan


The best tips for a year round tan

Just because winter is coming doesn’t mean we should succumb to paleness.

If you’re someone who enjoys a tanned, bronzed-up complexion (and who doesn’t in Australia?!), we’ve got all the tips you need to be able to master a sunkissed tan on the chilliest winter days.

Of course, this wouldn’t be achievable without the incredible Bondi Sands who have bronze babes covered with everything they need from short-term and long-term tanning solutions to suit your needs, to quick fixes when your tan is looking a little uneven, as well as effective tanning removers and applicators.

This Aussie brand loves a healthy DIY tan just as much as we do, so we’re going to show you how you can re-live your favourite summer memories with a gorgeous tan this winter.

Tip #1: Exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin before tanning is singlehandedly the best way to ensure a smooth, even tan. This is especially important in winter when the dry skin is peaking.

Give your freshly cleaned skin a thorough exfoliation to remove any dry flakes, soften any dry patches and get rid of any dead skin cells.

Tip #2: Choose a moisturising formula

It's important that we keep our skin moisturised not only for a smooth, even tan application, but also because our skin tends to suffer during the colder months.

Avoid dry, cracked skin as you tan by choosing a hydrating formula that’s full of mega moisturisers.

Some of our recommendations include:

Bondi Sands Liquid Gold Self Tanning Foam ($22.95) – The Liquid Gold formulation is incredibly hydrating with Argan Oil as its key ingredient. This foam gives you the flexibility of a light, medium or dark tan with reapplication.

Bondi Sands Self Tanning Lotion Dark ($19.95) – Work this lotion into the skin for a dark glow while soothing Aloe Vera and conditioning Coconut penetrate into the skin for a silky soft texture.

Tip #3: Give a short-term solution a try

If you don’t have the time to commit to a long-term tan or simply just want to add some colour to your complexion for a special event, try Bondi Sands 1 Hour Express Self Tanning Foam ($24.95).

This ultra-lightweight aerosol foam is super easy to reply and gives you a lovely golden veil in just one hour.

With a quick-drying formula, you can speed out the door in minutes without having to worry about greasy residue or colour transfer.
