How I prep my Skin before self tanning – Crabtree & Evelyn

August 14, 2016




It has been a year since I did a post on my self tanning.Since my last post I have changed my tanning regime and what products I use. This will be a two part blog post. Part one being how I prep my skin. Part two being what tan I use and I how I apply it.

I like to apply my self tanner at night and rinse it off in the morning so I get deep summer glow. Before applying my tan I will shower using an exfoliate body wash. I have been loving this skin invigorating shower gel from Crabtree and Evelyn. It is a gentle yet deep shower gel that treats your skin, leaving it feeling refreshed and conditioned. It has a zesty scent that awakens your senses. This collection features an antioxidant and vitamin C – rich Tarocco Sicilian red orange, invigorating eucalyptus, and soothing sage to refresh and deodorise your skin.

Then I also like to use a deep scrub focusing on my knees, knuckles, ankles and elbows. It is also important to use a deep scrub to remove any old tan before applying a new layer. This avoids getting a tan build up that will leave you with the dreaded scaly look. I have being loving this deep cleansing body scrub from Crabtree and Evelyn. I apply it to damp skin in a circular pattern then rinse it off. This scrub is one of the best I have ever used. It is jam packed to the brim with exfoliate beads, perfect for deep body scrubbing. This scrub has a delicious scent of orange ,bergamot and neroli with herbaceous accents.

I pat myself dry ready to apply my self tanner. My skin is left feeling fresh, zesty and smells delicious! Crabtree and Evelyn products make me feel like I have stepped out of a luxurious spa.

This regime is also perfect for those of you who do not apply self tanner but still want to buff and pamper your skin leaving it smooth and soft.
