My Self Tan Routine

Friday, August 17, 2018

Today I wanted to share my self tan routine with ya'll. I've gotten questions about my favorite products so I wanted to write it all out, link everything, and share some of my tips and tricks! 
Self tanning has been my go-to especially this year. I have learned a lot about my skin and I want to take care of it by protecting it from the harmful rays of the sun! I'm trying to prevent wrinkles and sun spots at a young age, but I still want that sun kissed glow.
My all time favorite and the one I'm gonna be talking about today is the St. Moriz tanning mousse in the color dark! 
Some of my other favorites are the  LA tan mousse, and the Younique tanning lotion. If I'm wanting something a little more expensive, I love the Loving Tan mousse in the color ultra dark.

I usually self tan once a week! I stay dark for about 4-5 days and then it starts to fade.


  1. I start by exfoliating my skin, and shaving my legs. This ensures an even application and gets rid of all of that old tan! 
  2. I apply lotion to my hands and feet. I do this so the tanning mousse will go on lighter and more evenly. Without it, my hands always look super splotchy and unflattering. 
  3. Apply your self tanner with a mitt. I HIGHLY recommend using a mitt so you wont stain your hands! It also makes the tanning mousse go on so much smoother and more even. You can get a mitt from ulta for about $4-5! 
Let it dry for a few minutes before putting your clothes back on. Once it's dry, put on baggy clothing that you wouldn't mind staining! I normally don't have issues with staining but just in case. 

That's my self tanning routine! I hope this was helpful. Remember that the key to a great self tan is an even application! I have looked back at old pictures when I had no idea what I was doing, and have serious embarrassment and regret! haha But using a mitt and exfoliating beforehand have been my life savers when it comes to fake tan. 
I hope you enjoyed this post! What's your favorite tanning product? I would love to know.
