Valentines Tanning Tips with Cocoa Brown Tan
Step 1) When it comes to tanning, preparation is key. Remove rough, dry, flaky skin and any uneven bumps (also known as keratin plugs) on the skin by exfoliating using Cocoa Brown TOUGH STUFF Body Scrub, €4.99/£4.99, the multi award-winning body scrub from the Cocoa Brown tanning range. Start at your toes and work your way towards your heart to get your blood flowing and increase your circulation which brings oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells, making it appear more healthy and radiant. TOUGH STUFF contains finely ground pumice which will do a far better job of exfoliating than your typical apricot or walnut kernel body scrubs. Don’t be fooled by the pretty pink colour of the tube or scrub – this body scrub means business and will leave your skin feeling smoother than it ever has. Pay particular attention to areas such as your hands, feet, elbows and knees which can be particularly prone to dryness.
Step 2) Now that your body is exfoliated, your skin will be at its most absorbent and will drink up any moisturiser you put on. The award winning body moisturiser Cocoa Brown Chocolate Whip Oil-Free Body Moisturiser, €3.99/£3.99, hydrates and plumps skin so that it appears luminous and radiant and helps prepare skin for Cocoa Brown Tan. Rich in vitamin E, it nourishes dry skin. Its other star ingredient, Panthenol, leaves skin feeling silky. The chocolate scent ensures your skin smells good enough to eat! Chocolate Whip won’t leave your skin feeling greasy or oily and you can dress within minutes of application. Because its oil-free formula makes it absorb quickly and easily into the skin. Apply everyday in the lead up to your Valentines Day tanning application and a small amount to knees, elbows and feet on the day you are applying tan.
Step 3) You are now ready to apply your Cocoa Brown 1 HOUR TAN DARK, €7.99/£7.99! Apply using our pink tanning mitt, sweeping back and forth with the product to ensure a streak-free result. 1 HOUR TAN DARK is a brown mousse formulation so you can see where you are applying it and it’s fast drying too. It has no fake tan pong, only a beautiful floral Tahitian Gardenia scent and leaves deeply bronzed skin without the risk of an orange tint. Leave it to develop for 1, 2 or 3 hours, depending on how dark you’d like your tan to look.
Once you rinse your 1 HOUR TAN DARK, you can add an additional layer of Chocolate Whip everyday to lock in moisture and extend the life of your Cocoa Brown glow. Of course, Chocolate Whip has the added benefit of making you smell irresistible for that special someone too making it, along with the scented TOUGH STUFF Body Scrub and 1 HOUR TAN DARK, a Valentines Day beauty essential!
