Greek Island hopping isn’t the only way to get a tan. And let’s face it, annual leave only goes so far. Let us introduce you to the staycation. Kick back, relax, unplug from the outside world and bronze yourself from head to toe. No passport, plane ticket or sunshine required.
STEP 1: PREP YOUR SKIN
Prepping your skin is key to achieving a streak-free glow. Hop in the shower, grab your favourite Body Scrub and gently exfoliate your full body. This will buff away dead skin cells and make your skin nice and smooth pre-tan. When it comes to those extra dry patches, like your knees and elbows, be sure to add a little moisture before tanning. Our Body Yogurts sink into the skin in seconds and provide 48hr moisture.
STEP 2: SLATHER ON
First of all, you need to decide what kind of glow you want. Our Coconut Bronze range offers two instant sun-kissed finishes: shimmering and glowing. Both are enriched with Community Fair Trade coconut oil from Samoa, and smell like an escape to the tropics. Let us introduce you…
The Coconut Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil enhances the look of your natural tan and adds a warm hint of shimmering colour to your skin. Perfect for when you’re on holiday. Its quick drying texture is light and non-greasy but be sure to let it absorb in before getting dressed. It’s also dermatologically tested and suitable for sensitive skin.
STEP 3: LET IT DRY
We know, we know, letting your tan dry means sitting still and being patient, which can be hard when you’ve got a million and one things to do. But take this time to scrub away any excess product from your hands, particularly in between your fingers. Then grab your favourite book, put on a podcast or make a cup of tea and chill for five (or for as long as you need for the product to dry).
CHOOSING THE RIGHT BRONZER
When it comes to finding a bronzer, you want to make sure it complements your skin tone and has the colour payoff you’re looking for. Whether you’re wanting something that gives off a natural-looking, sun-kissed glow or maybe something a little more glistening that can take you from dinner to the disco, our Coconut Bronze bronzers can help.
Dust our Coconut Bronze Matte Bronzing Powder on your cheekbones and collarbones to add a light touch of colour. It’s a non-cakey texture that feels super lightweight on the skin. Available in three shades, you can touch up your natural tan in just a few quick sweeps.
For a bronzer with a shimmering finish, make our Coconut Bronze Glistening Glow Bronzing Powder your go-to. Like a bronzer-highlighter hybrid, it enhances your natural tan while adding a subtle touch of radiance. It’s lightweight and blends seamlessly into the skin.
HOW TO APPLY
Take your brush and swirl it around the palette of your bronzer. Gently dust along your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and the top of your forehead for a sun-kissed touch. Even go along your collarbones and anywhere else where the light catches for a natural-looking glow.
