Achieving a head-to-toe glow isn’t always easy, particularly as the best practices for facial tanning are slightly different to those for the body. Don’t worry though, we’ve broken down how to self tan your face step-by-step, and will introduce you to the best face tanners so that you can achieve a flawless, bronzed complexion – every time.
How to self tan your face like a pro
1. Choose the best self tanner for your face
A beautiful, bronzed face starts with the right face tanner. Consider your skin type and desired depth of tan:
- For oily or acne-prone skin: Applying a St.Tropez face mist is the easiest way to tan oily or acne-prone skin. Its lightweight and tropically-scented formula is made with non-pore blocking ingredients, so you can achieve a golden glow in 4 to 8 hours without causing breakouts or congestion.
- For normal to dry skin: The St.Tropez face serum is formulated with hydrating Hyaluronic Acid and brightening Vitamin C, making it perfect for dry complexions. Expect skin to feel moisturized for up to 72 hours, and your bronzed tan to develop over 3 to 6 hours.
- For a gradual tan: If you’d rather build your tan slowly, try our gradual St.Tropez face tans. While the Classic Face Cream is infused with Vitamin E to hydrate skin as it gradually tans, the Tinted Face Moisturiser adds an instant touch of color, while developing into a deeper tan over 4 to 8 hours.
Top Tip: All St.Tropez face tans are designed specifically for the sensitive skin on the face, and have lightweight, hydrating and non-pore blocking formulas.
