There’s no doubt about it; the perfect party season accessory is always a gorgeous, golden glow. Christmas is all about sparkle, shimmer and shine so it’s time to up the ante when it comes to a skin-loving glow. Thankfully, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’ve got a couple of low-key events in the diary or it’s packed full of glitz and glam extravaganzas, ensure your tan is always on point with these simple, skin perfecting tips. ‘Tis the season to glow, after all.


Step 1: Prep is Key

While it can be easy to reach for your tan straight away, the key to a flawless finish is all about that base. To ensure your skin is in prime condition for tanning, exfoliate using a gentle scrub (such as our Triple Action Glycolic Body Scrub) and mitt thoroughly, 24-hours prior to tanning. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells from the skin’s outermost layer to help ensure even coverage on application. After exfoliating, moisturise your skin.


Step 2: Apply your tan

If you can, shower 30-minutes before application. This will enable your skin to return to its natural PH balance and allow time for your pores to close. Do not apply body lotion or deodorant before tanning. Make sure your underarms are deodorant free and avoid using any oil based products, as they can leave traces on the skin that can cause streaking.

For a long-lasting glow, our Rapid Self-Tanning Tinted Mousse is a winner, for good reason. The beauty of this tan, is that you are in control of its colour. Simply leave on for 2-hours for a light tan, wash off after 3-hours for a medium glow or for the darkest results, leave on for 6 or more hours. The mousse formula is super easy to use (even for tanning newbies), gliding over the skin and blending perfectly for a fabulous finish.


Step 3: Elevate your look

The Christmas party season definitely calls for next level tanning. Our Flawless Filter Body Make-Up is perfect for those festive nights out. A wash-off body and face makeup, it effortlessly blurs imperfections, while the special tinted formula is designed to bronze and gloss your skin instantly. It gives a HD finish that lasts all day long and looks so flawless that #nofilter is required on those festive photos.

A firm favourite with beauty bloggers and make-up artists, our Skin Perfecting Illuminating Bronzing Powder is unlike anything you have tried before. Just at the name suggests, this Bronzing Power works to perfect your skin while illuminating it for a glow that keeps on giving. The golden bronzing power cleverly reflects light, while offering subtle coverage, to give your skin a gorgeous, natural golden glow. Lightweight, ultra-fine pigments enhance the skin’s natural undertones for a truly unique skin perfecting finish. Plus, it’s suitable for use on both the face and body, making this one of the most versatile beauty products you could ever own!

 


Step 4: Keep the glow alive

Now that you’ve tanned you’ll want to keep the glow alive. Using our Self Tanning Gradual Moisturiser will not only keep your skin super hydrated, but it will deepen your tan and extend its duration too so when those last-minute Christmas catch-ups with friends roll around, you’ll definitely be ready. Plus, like all our Bellamianta products, it is packed full of skin-loving, organic ingredients, keeping it super soft and in tip-top condition.


This festive season, enjoy the greatest gift of all – a gorgeous, golden glow.
