How To Prime Your Skin For Fake Tan

Verity Edwards-Flaherty

Got a knack for DIY? Then you’ll know how important it is to prep and prime a wall before you paint it. In much the same way, preparation is key when it comes to fake tanning properly. Fake tan glides and ‘grabs’ onto well-prepped skin, lending it a flawless colour finish. Plus it makes for a longer-lasting tan that fades gradually and evenly, ready for the next application.

Here are the three steps to priming your skin for fake tan:

Exfoliate. A day before your fake tan use an exfoliator to remove the dead skin cells that are sitting on the surface of your skin, to create a smooth base for tanner to glide over, and reveal the fresh ones. The newer your skin cells, the longer your glow will last so this step shouldn’t be missed if you want to increase the lifespan of your tan.

Remove cosmetics. Some of the ingredients in cosmetic products, like perfume, deodorant and moisturiser, act as barriers to fake tan and can prevent it from latching onto the skin properly. Therefore, bare skin, that’s free from fragrances, anti-perspirant and make up, is the perfect foundation for fake tan application.

Hydrate dry areas. This might sound counter intuitive to the last point but you may have to apply a touch of moisturiser to particularly dry areas of your skin before fake tanning. Skin that’s too dry can ‘soak up’ sunless tanner and leave the skin looking patchy instead of balanced from head to toe. If you need to even up the texture of your skin apply a dab of moisture to common dry spots like the elbows and ankles and blend in well so it’s fully absorbed before tanning.

What makes your eyebrows grow?

The need to have fuller thicker looking brows has never been bigger. Gone are the days of overly plucked, thin, sparse brows. However, if you were a victim of the 90’s trend and have struggled to grow your brows back not all is lost. There’s no quick fix to make your brows grow, but here are our top tips here at Beautylicious for regrowing brows.

Bin the tweezers

An obvious one, but it’s time to ditch the tweezers (or worse, razors)! To avoid any more mistakes, leave it to your local HD Brows stylist at Beautylicious. You might think you’re only plucking the unruly hairs, but that one hair that looks to be out of the shape is actually where we want hair to grow. Over time more hairs will grow in the area, resulting in fuller looking brows.

It takes time and a lot of patience. All our HD Brows Stylists have been trained to the highest standards and will be able to advise you as to what areas you need to grow in in order to create a fuller brow. It might not be as much as you think.

Make an investment

Take the step and invest in a growth serum. The Lash and Brow booster is a must have for anybody trying to grow their brows. Used twice daily on clean, dry brows, this product will encourage and speed up the hair growth. It can take up to three months to see results so be patient and you will be amazed at what can be achieved after those months.

Learn how to fill them in while you wait

We get it – the urge to pluck can sometimes be too much when you’re trying to grow back your brows. Why not ask us for a mini make up lesson? We can share their top tips on how to fill in sparse areas while the hair is growing back. They’ll be able to find the perfect product for you and show you how to create the most natural looking finish. No one will know that you’re faking it until you make it.

Growing out your brows is definitely going to be a journey but with time and patience you can definitely achieve fuller brows.

How to have the ultimate cleansing experience!

Verity Edwards-Flaherty

From when you first wake up in the morning, to when you get ready for a peaceful night’s sleep in the evening, one of the most essential steps to have in any skincare routine is a cleanser. Cleansing is all about letting your natural skin shine through and Decléor’s Aroma Cleanse 3-in-1 Hydra Radiance Cleansing Mousse perfectly meets this demand. Great for those who are on-the-go and want a quick and easy cleanse that delivers exceptional results – this cleanser is the perfect addition to your skincare wardrobe.

Why should I cleanse my skin every day?

You may think a quick splash of water with a spot of soap is enough to cleanse your skin, however to keep skin healthy and hydrated a cleanser is a must-have. Cleansers aren’t just used to remove make-up, they also have other amazing benefits such as removing dead skin cells, as well as the build-up of oils, dirt and pollution from the skin. Throughout the day your skin is faced with all these different environmental factors, whether that be pollution from cars on the road, or sweat from a tough session at the gym. Using a cleanser ensures your skin maintains its beautiful, healthy glow as it washes away the impurities that have built up over the day.
