Not blessed with naturally beautiful sun-kissed skin? We’re here to tell you that even if your skin doesn’t turn golden after a full summer of sunshine, there’s a way to capture (ahem, fake!) your summer glow.
Of course, the idea of fake tan instantly conjures up some not-so-appealing images of noticeably uneven patches, zebra-esque striped skin, and the dreaded orange-hand syndrome (ok so that’s not really a thing, but it kind of is right?). With 1000 Hours Self Tan Applicator Mitt, all these scenarios can be avoided.
This is the perfect DIY solution for those who either want to maintain their hard-earned summer tan throughout the cooler months. Or simply want one to start with. The mitt has been designed for simple, non-messy and streak-free application of self tan lotions, creams, mousses, sprays and even tinted moisturisers.
To use, simply place your hand inside the foam mitt and apply your preferred self-tan product to the velvety surface. Using gentle sweeping movements, massage the tan onto the skin and repeat if necessary – that’s it!
Other than preventing the contagious orange-hand syndrome (yep, we said it again) the mitt is made using a special soft-touch material that helps spread any type of self tan product evenly onto your skin, letting you blend the product effortlessly, resulting in a streak-free tan. Perfect!
But what about those hard to tan places like your ankles, knees an elbows you ask?! Well, the material used on the applicator area also holds onto a small amount of the product within the foam itself, making tanning in those areas easier. Genius!
One quick clause - the mitt isn’t a total miracle worker, so make sure you always prep your skin for tanning before application. We recommend gently exfoliating to remove any dead, flaky skin; particularly around the elbows, knees and ankles.
Just in case you missed it, here are some of the many benefits of using the 1000 Hour Self Tan Applicator Mitt:
Oh yes, the mitt is also washable! So after applying we recommend washing the mitt in the machine (perhaps on its own) and leaving it to dry naturally away from direct heat.
One more quick tip! Make sure you give your fake tan plenty of time to dry before throwing on your favourite outfit. Check out the 1000 Hour Little Black Tanning Dress for a quick throw-over while you’re waiting. It’s loose and comfortable so it won’t smudge your handy work, and has a longer back to protect any furniture you may happen to sit down on (we think of everything).
It really is that easy. Envy those golden goddesses on the beach no more, and get that summer glow with ease. Plus maintain it without the need to bake for hours risking skin health. This definitely is the safest and best way to glow!
Enjoy the last month of this wonderful summer, beauties!
