How I Maintain My Tan at Home + GIVEAWAY

Maintaining a tan at home is the constant struggle…am I right? In between spray tans and the occasional tanning bed session, I’m constantly trying out new products to see what can help me prolong my fake tan the best. A lot of you have asked me which self-tanner products I use at home and how I apply for maximum results. Lately I’ve been using these Palm Beach Tan products  from their Sunless Black Label Premier Collection and today I’m going into detail on these products, how I apply them, my opinion on each, and sharing my favorites. Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom for a fun giveaway!!

1. Flawless Primer

This product is like a silky gel that leaves your skin feeling like velvet! I always bring this with me and apply right before I get my spray tan. You are supposed to wait at least 60 seconds after applying before you get a spray tan, so I just wait until it feels dry! I also use this when I’m doing a spray tan at home and apply right before. I’ve noticed that it helps the spray tan penetrate my skin better and makes for a deeper/darker tan! Before finding this product I used to use regular lotion to moisturize so my skin wasn’t dry and thought this would do the same, but I actually think I was creating a barrier and preventing the self-tanner from penetrating my skin. This definitely prolongs the tan and I highly recommend!

2. Perfect Bronzing Mist

Talk about convenient — when self-tanner was made into a spray bottle, this was a game changer! Especially ones that spray like this perfect bronzing mist. I’ve been using this every other week to maintain my tan and it’s been working like a charm. I will say, if you get it to close to your skin you can create darker areas and nobody wants that, so I recommend keeping it a good distance from you skin — approximately 8 inches or so is good! I try to do one consistent motion horizontally going back and forth on my front side. Then I have Kyle help me out with the back, but I wouldn’t say it’s impossible to do yourself πŸ˜‰

3. Chic Facial Creme

This is one of my favorites from the line! I love the smell and even though it’s a self-tanner lotion, it feels so smooth going on your face. Usually my skin is sensitive and pores clog up easy when I use anything other than my regular skin care regimen on my face, but I’ve been having great success with this. I always keep my face out of the sun and try to wear 50 SPF at all times, so my face sometimes looks extra light in comparison to my body. I started applying this 4x/week and have noticed a tremendous difference in my face color blending much better with my neck & body.

4. Radiant Extending Moisturizer

After your spray tan has been on for a week, there’s nothing worse than looking like a dry, scaley snake (please tell me you know what I’m talking about). So after my last spray tan I immediately started using this tan extender and I really feel like it not only moisturizes my skin, but also fills in the missing color where my spray tan starts to fade!

Overall, I can’t recommend these products enough. I know there are many self-tanner options out there and I’m always willing to explore, but this is what I’ve been using lately and am loving at the moment! Since I love these products so much, I’m teaming up with Palm Beach Tan to giveaway some exciting prizes!

These products can all be purchased in-store, but I’ve teamed up with Palm Beach Tan to give 3 lucky winners the full range of Sunless Black Label products and one of those winners a $200 Sephora gift card! See the rafflecopter below for entry details πŸ™‚

    I have not tried this tanner before but would love too. I have had melanoma(yes the deadly kind) twice and know this is the only safe tan. Thanks so much for this opportunity.
    Also, I have gone through all of your ig photos and I do not see any pictures or even comments about this. Im sure I’m just blind but will you point me in the right direction please?
    Thanks for your time.
