How To Keep A Tan
This video will give you some tips on keeping a natural-looking golden tan, so you can flaunt that gorgeous color on your skin.
Hi, my name is Abigail Oleck and I am the founder of Beaubronz and spray tanner to the stars. And now, I'm going to share with you my top tanning tips. Now, I'm going to talk to you about maintaining your tan, and we have the lovely Lizzie Cundy with us.
Abigail: Hello, Lizzie.
Lizzie: Hello, my lovely Abby. How are you?
Abigail: I'm very well, very happy that you are here today.
Lizzie: Yes, me too.
Abigail: And I can see that you've got the most gorgeous color on your skin already.
Lizzie: Well, that's thanks to you Abby and Beaubronz because I do think this is the most natural looking tan.
I mean, last night, I was at this wonderful celebrity event and everyone was asking where I'd been on holiday, which is great, it just looks so natural.
Abigail: Well, thank you. Now, I'm going to teach today how to maintain that tan.
So basically, what's on your skin at the moment is about 9 ½ to 10% DHA, and DHA, that is your self-tanning agent. So basically, what we want to do is we want to learn how to maintain that tan and keep it really strong, really golden and really bright. Now, the way to do that is by using a 1% DHA product.
Now, what this product has is organic aloe vera, coconut oil and sunflower oil. So I'm going to show you how to apply the product. So basically, every single day, you want to be applying a tan maintainer with 1% DHA and what this is going to do is going to keep this golden gorgeous color really bright, really golden and really maintained.
That's really important when you have any sort of tan on your skin, be it a spray tan or if it's from a retail product that you've used at home, that you use a tan extender everyday to maintain it. That's because DHA will start to come off with your natural skin cells, but if you're using a product that's got 1% color, organic aloe vera, sunflower oil and coconut oil, it's basically going to keep that skin super-hydrated and super-maintained. Now, I'm just going to show you on myself because you've got a little bracelet there.
I'm going to show you how to apply it onto your hand. So basically, we're going to apply the product you've used at home onto your arm, rubbing the 1% color and it's going to keep that tan really maintained. Then, when you're applying it over your wrist, you drop down your wrist, you pull the residue down, then you make like little claw with your fingers there and you pull that residue over your fingers and what that does is instead of having those white lines which is a tattle-tale sign of fake tan in your knuckles, it's going to have that perfectly tan fade-away look all over your hands.
Lizzie: What a good tip. I did not even know that.
Abigail: I know.
Lizzie: So no one will know you've actually got a fake tan.
Abigail: And exactly, and that's going to maintain it, it's going to keep your tan really strong and the same process is going to be applied on your legs. So when you're applying the tan on your legs, you just bring it to about two inches before your foot and then bring the residue onto the top of your foot and round the ankle, and that's the way to keep this supergolden tan that you've got which is absolutely lovely.
Lizzie: And I've got to say, Abby, it smells good too.
Abigail: It does, doesn't it?
Lizzie: What beautiful smell! Because sometimes, fake tends to do smell a bit all day, it's lovely. Wow, very soft.
Abigail: You're welcome. Thank you very much.
