How To Get The Best Tan
Going on holiday soon and want to come home with the best tan? Follow Abigail as she explains her steps to beautiful bronze skin.
Hi, my name is Abigail Oleck and I'm the founder of BeauBronze and spray tanner to the stars, and I'm going to share with you top tanning tips. Okay, so now we are going to talk about how to get the best tan and I really also want to think about how to get the best tan on holiday. Now of course, if you're on holiday, I do recommend that you use a very good strong sun protector.
I do recommend at least a 30 on the body and ladies, it's an absolute it's got to be a 50 on the face. So when you're on holiday, you're obviously going to go out in the sun but the first thing is do avoid the sun between 12 and 3 because that's when it's at its highest. But when you're out in the sun and you got your sun protector on, this is the way that you can cheat and it's what I do on holiday and I always come back browner than anybody else.
So all day long I got my sun protector on but at night I take a 4% color. Now 4 % DHA is about half the strength of a typical spray tan in salon. So it's a light to medium color.
So let's just pretend we're on holiday now, had my sun protector on all day. First day of my holiday, I'm going to put my 4 percent on at night before I go to bed. Not in the day because there is no sun protection in this.
Sun protection in day, fake tan at night. So on the first night, I'm going to put on 4 percent. I'm going to wake up in the morning, and I'm going to have a light to medium color.
People may not suspect at the moment that I'm using fake tan but I am. But by the second night when I apply it for the second time on day three of my holiday, I'm coming downstairs with a super rich 8 percent sort of color which is very similar to the color I've got now. And so far I've had no sun rays.
When I've got the color I want to achieve, I start using 1 percent color. So on day three, four, five of my holiday I'll use the one percent every day. And then on the last night I reuse the 4 percent so then what happens is when we're all standing in the airport to go home and people who haven't used the sun protector are peeling, are red, I'm standing there, I've used my sun protector every day.
I've got the most gorgeous golden color that's been built up gradually and it's also gone in different levels over my holiday. So as everybody else is getting a little bit of color, you're also getting a little bit of color. So that's the perfect way to get a great tan when you're on holiday.
But you can also apply that at home so if you just want to go through the process of customizing your color at home, you can use a mixture of 4 and one percent DHA products every night until you find the right balance and the golden color that makes you feel happy and makes you feel comfortable. .
