How to Use Self Tan Serum

This is part of our complete guide on how to apply fake tan.

Self-tan serums are a great way to get a sun-kissed glow, especially during colder months and without a harmful amount of exposure to UV rays. But choosing the right serum and knowing how to apply it can be daunting. So how about some step-by-step instructions? We’ll help you choose and use the right self-tan serum, so you can get that flawless, natural-looking glow.

Step 1: Cleanse and Exfoliate Your Skin

Before applying self-tan serum, prep your skin by cleansing and exfoliating. Start with a gentle cleanser to remove any oils, dirt or makeup from your skin. Then exfoliate your skin to get rid of any dead skin cells that could cause patches or streaks. A body scrub or exfoliating mitt works great for this. Make sure you pay more attention to dry areas such as knees, elbows and ankles, which can absorb the serum more and become patchy.

Step 2: Mix Your Self Tan Serum with a Moisturiser, Lotion or Foundation

Self-tan serums can sometimes be drying, which can lead to patches or streaking. To avoid this, try mixing a few drops of serum with your regular moisturiser, lotion, or foundation. This will help to keep your skin hydrated, and the serum will evenly spread on your skin. Start with 2-3 drops of the serum, and gradually increase the quantities to get your desired colour.

Step 3: Massage Serum into Your Skin, Blend with a Kabuki or Makeup Brush

Now it’s time to apply the self-tan serum. Begin on your skin’s lowest points and work your way up. This helps to prevent creases and marks from clothing. Use a kabuki or makeup brush to apply the mixture, focusing on small areas at a time. Gently massage the serum into your skin, ensuring you blend it in evenly. You might have the perfect colour now, but if not…

Step 4: Apply Additional Applications for Deeper Colour

If you’re looking to achieve a darker colour, you can apply additional applications, but you should wait at least 4 to 8 hours before reapplying. If you are seeking optimal outcomes, it’s best to re-exfoliate and remove any excess before re-application. You can apply an extra layer of moisturiser after application if the skin becomes too dry.

Step 5: Wash Your Hands After Use

After finishing the application of the serum, it’s important to wash your hands correctly. Also, try not to sweat or shower after applying for at least four hours to avoid the colour developing unevenly. We recommend a pH-balanced body wash, but only after you have waited the recommended time after application.
