Your ultimate guide to fake tan with Bondi Sands


Fake tan can be beautiful but also at times disastrous! Never fear, Owner and Co-Founder of Bondi Sands, Blair James, shares his tips on you can how prevent looking like you rolled in dirt.

STEP 1: Before applying fake tan James recommends exfoliating your skin, but make sure not to apply any creams or oils right before application as this will cause the tan to apply uneven.

STEP 2: In sections, start applying your fake tan to your whole body. PRO TIP: When applying fake tan always use a fake tan mitt, like the Bondi Sands Application Mitt, to ensure your tan is streak free. This will save your hands from getting stained too! If it is your first time fake tanning, James recommends using a foam formula as it is fuss free and dries quickly.

STEP 3: James says applying fake tan to your face is a personal preference. Bondi Sands Everyday Face Gradual Tan is a great product that works like an everyday tinted moisturiser and gradually builds a tan. PRO TIP: Apply baby powder on top of your tan to avoid it transferring if you decide you want to sleep in it over night.

STEP 4: To prolong your fake tan and maintain a beautiful glow try the Bondi Sands Everyday Gradual Tanning Milk and lightly pat yourself dry after a shower. This will make your tan last as long as possible.

The best fake tan requires planning and prep but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get a beautiful glow for your last minute plans. The Bondi Sands Liquid Gold Self Tanning Dry Oil is a life saver when you need glowing skin fast! This product dries quickly, develops within an hour and requires no rinsing, ensuring you are ready to go looking tanned and radiant!
