From her clothes to her hair to her shoes many are fascinated and love to copy Kate Middleton. Now salons are reporting a trend in clients now want the Kate Middleton tan. The look this summer is all about enhancing your natural skin tone rather than masking it. So what do we do to get the Kate Middleton glow ….
With so many lotions and potions on the market where do you start. Over the years formulas have kept improving to give a more natural glow rather than looking like we have been tangoed!
This is key to how your tan will look, last and ultimately wear-off. Look after your skin on your body by daily moisturising. Exfoliate twice a week and always the night before you to tan to get rid of any dry skin and provide an even base. Image Skincare’s Body Spa exfoliating body scrub is a pharmaceutical anti-ageing body scrub. The blend of glycolic, lactic and maltic acid renew the skin and increase cell regeneration.
Apply a moisturiser to feet, knees, elbows and hands. This will act like a barrier to these naturally drier areas where tan can get cling.
Use a mitt to apply the tan, start at your feet and work your way up the body using circular motions. Once you have completed you whole body what about the face? Image Skincare face and body bronzer, from the Body Spa range means that you can tan without compromising your skin. It contains erythrulose with pigment which is a natural self-tanner with a light golden shimmer. Apply tan in the middle of the face (where the sun naturally catches) and blend outwards and down your neck. If you don’t want to tan the face why no use a tinted moisturiser such as Daily Defense Tinted SPF30 to give you a glow while protecting from the sun.
Avoid the tell-tale signs of tan
Once tan is applied take a baby wipes and wipe around the palm of your hands to ensure the tan is evenly blended! I also like to dam a cotton bud and run one through each eyebrow get rid of any tan that may have got caught.
Once you have got the glow you want it to last. Moisture daily and avoid shower-gels and moisturisers that are very heavily scented.
