More Detailed Directions for those new to self-tanning
Prior to application (preferably 24 hours) to any of the following sunless tanning products, shower using an exfoliating scrub and dry off thoroughly. Do not apply moisturisers – they will dilute and diminish the effect of self-tanning products.
Start by applying self-tan in a circular motion to thighs. Some people use gloves such as the Eco-Friendly Tanning Mitt to give a superior application. If you prefer not to, just use your hands, but ensure you wash them thoroughly after use.
Blend down lightly over knees and then in a circular motion again around calves.
Blend a small amount of the self-tanner in a downward motion over feet, being sure to blend around ankles.
Chest and back
Using a circular motion, blend the self-tanner over the stomach, chest, and as far around the back as you can reach.
Use a long handled plastic spatula to smooth lotions or mousse on your back where you cannot reach… or… If you want to tan your whole back, cut off a piece of cling wrap and fold over to make a long strip. Apply dots of tanner to the strip and then use it to smooth over back.
Blend tanner over shoulders and down arms ending at the wrist. Keep arms bent so that the self-tanner distributes evenly over the elbows.
Hands and feet
Prior to applying tanner to the hands and feet, wash hands thoroughly with warm soapy water for a full 1–2 minutes to completely remove all self-tan residue from the palms of the hands.
A scrub brush will be very effective here to remove any excess from your palms and ensure that nails aren’t stained.
Dry hands off thoroughly on a dark towel.
Apply a small amount of tanner to the Eco-Friendly Tanning Mitt and blend evenly over hands. Thin skin like hands and feet need less product so a smaller amount will work best here.
Use alcohol wipe or moisturiser to wipe off excess product on knuckles after application, making a fist and wiping excess off.
After applying self-tan to one hand just switch the mitt to the other hand and then repeat the process.
For areas where the skin is unusually dry e.g. on elbows or knees, follow application of tanner with a small amount of your regular body moisturiser to those areas.
Carry on with normal activities, and allow self-tan to activate.
It takes 1–3 hours for self-tan mousse to fully develop a healthy, natural-looking tan that can last up to 7 days.
Tanning can be done prior to going to bed, although we recommend darker sheets are used just in case.
Wait 15 minutes after tanning to dress and try to wear loose fitting clothing.
Xen–Tan self-tanner washes out of most fabrics but wearing dark colours initially is suggested.
