TIP 1: SPF (OBVS!) If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it 1000 times: apply SPF50+ every time you leave the house. Yep, it doesn’t matter if you’re just walking to get your morning cappuccino or if you’re planning on relaxing by the ocean for hours on end, SPF is a non-negotiable. Not only will it keep you protected from sun damage (and eventual skin cancers down the line) but it will also ensure you don’t end up with nasty burn lines or an uneven tan.
TIP 2: COMMIT TO A GRADUAL TANNING PRODUCT Easy to apply and with no pesky orange residue, a gradual tanning product is your best friend in the warmer months. Simply apply after your shower of an evening and let the subtle formula do its thing. We suggest concentrating the product in the areas where your tan lines appear and using sparingly on drier areas like your wrists, elbows, ankles and knees.
TIP 3: BE PREPARED FOR A QUICK FIX If you’ve left your tan line maintenance to the last minute and have a backless frock for dinner with the girls, then it pays to have a quick fix product in your arsenal. Whether it’s a wash off faux tan or a body glow product, one swipe of these one-night-wonder products and you’ll be looking glowing and even in no time. Our biggest tip? Apply these with plenty of time to spare and let them fully dry before getting dressed to avoid any colour transfer.
