Mois­ture mat­ters

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - BEAUTY -

For the per­fect fake tan, you need 1 well-hy­drated skin. ‘Just like foun­da­tion needs a mois­turised face to sit well, your body needs hy­dra­tion for the most seam­less fake-tan ap­pli­ca­tion,’ says St. Tropez skin fin­ish­ing 2 ex­pert Michael Brown. Mois­tur­is­ing dry-prone ar­eas be­fore applying your self-tan, es­pe­cially the el­bows, knees and heels, will avoid un­sightly splotch­ing and tell-tale streaks. 3It will ex­tend the life span of your faux glow. ‘The more mois­ture you have locked in be­fore self-tan­ning, the more bond the tan has,’ ex­plains Michael. Drench skin in as much mois­turiser as pos­si­ble dur­ing the days post-ap­pli­ca­tion. Try Bio-Oil R210 or BON Liq­uid Gold Pure Tis­sue Oil R140.
