5 Tanning Tips for the Perfect Valentine's Day Glow

by Marissa@CocoaBrownTan

Outfit planned, check! Date night booked, check! Beautifully bronzed skin? Almost check!

Take a look at these top tips to create a radiant impact with Cocoa Brown Tan this V-Day!

1. Get prepped

Preparing your skin for tan will hugely impact your result. If you’re aiming for a flawless, streak free finish make sure you…

- Exfoliate everyday, starting on 10th February. Do not exfoliate on the 13th February as this is the day you are going to apply your tan. Try Cocoa Brown TOUGH STUFF Body Scrub. The multi-award winning beauty buy contains ground pumice stone which provides for a deeply invigorating body treatment.

- After each exfoliation, moisturise your skin to keep it hydrated and nourished. Cocoa Brown CHOCOLATE WHIP Oil-Free Body Moisturiser contains vitamin E and panthenol to really hydrate and protect your skin.

- The day before Valentine's day, do not apply any products to your skin or use soap/shower gel in the shower. Instead, apply a little more oil-free body moisturiser to dry areas such as knees, elbows and feet.

It's now time for tanning!

2. Choose your glow

Are you ready to vamp up your look it up for the special day? If your day-to-day choice of tan is a little more subtle, think about layering up to create an impact. Try Cocoa Brown 1 HOUR TAN DARK for deeply bronzed skin.

3. Contour

Apply a little extra product between your cleavage and on your collar bones to define a sexy structure on your decolage. You can finish off your look by adding some highlighter too.

Use a darker shade of tan to contour your legs, try 1 HOUR TAN DARK - apply it to the inner part of your legs and let it fade downwards.This will create  the look of longer and slimmer pins!

4. Make it pop

Add a shimmering powder or oil to really enhance your new found tan. Apply to collar bones, upper cheekbones and down the center of your legs. Blend evenly for a flawless finish.

5. Saviour the mood

Saviour the feeling of being beautifully bronzed and prolong your tan for as long as you can. Use an oil-free body moisturiser to extend the life of your tan like Cocoa Brown Chocolate Whip Oil-Free Body Moisturiser. Oil, present in most moisturisers, can cause the breakdown of fake tan on your skin meaning it fades quickly and unevenly. Try Chocolate Whip - the added sweet scented cocoa powder will have you smelling irresistible!
