Getting a sun tan right now in New Zealand winter is almost impossible, and definitely not a good idea if you’re trying to avoid the harsh UV rays damaging your skin. So if you’re wanting to be a bronzed goddess in winter – we’ve got you covered on how to achieve the perfect faux tan.
Prep Your Skin
The first step to perfecting your tan is to prepare your skin by exfoliating to ensure there are no flakes or patchy areas that will get in the way of a smooth finish. The Bondi Sands Exfoliating Mitt will help remove old self tan as well any dry skin cells, leaving you with perfectly prepared skin. Just remember to use the blue side for removing mistakes and the black side for exfoliating.
The Perfect Application
Say goodbye to streaks and patches with the Bondi Sands Application Mitt, the queen of all self tanning accessories. The soft fibres effortlessly apply self tan across your skin while keeping your hands stain free. It’s also washable and reusable so with a quick wash, the mitt will be ready for your next self tan session. Best to use this mitt with foams, lotions and mists.
The worst part of fake tanning is trying to reach your back as you probably end up doing some funky yoga move trying to ensure your back area has an even layer of product on. But not to worry, Bondi Sands Back Applicator literally has your back! The soft foam applicator has been cleverly designed to provide even coverage for flawless self tanning results. It conveniently folds away for easy storage and travel.
If an instant self tan like GLO One Day is your go-to then don’t go without the Bondi Sands Body Brush. The head is curved to mold to the contours of your body while the dense hairs create a beautifully buffed finish every time. Not only is it small enough to pop in your makeup bag for on-the-go application, it’s washable and reusable – safe to say last-minute tans and this brush go hand-in-hand. An ideal tool to ensure a smooth and flawless application of any Bondi Sands lotions, foams and mists.
Bondi Sands is available at Farmers, Chemist Warehouse, Unichem and Life Pharmacies.
