The tanning drops you need for glowing skin

The tanning drops you need for glowing skin

We’ve seen so many new fake tan formulas released by some of our favourite tanning brands this summer from rich, luxurious foams to tanning waters. Making it even easier to apply tan and achieve an even, streak-free golden glow, these new formulas are sure to replace the heavy, greasy lotions we have been used to in the past.

Another of our favourite new tanning formulas is tanning drops. So easy to use, customisable and multi-tasking, tanning drops can be used on both your face and body to help you achieve anything from a soft sunkissed glow to a deep, rich bronze.

How to use tanning drops

Rather than adding another product into your routine, tanning drops allow you to tan with the skin and body care products you love. By simply adding drops of the tan into your moisturiser of choice, you create your perfect hydrating tanning formula.

Unlike other tanning formulas, tanning drops also allow you to customise your glow. By simply adding more or fewer drops of the formula into your moisturiser, you can create your dream tan shade.

For best results, take one to two pumps of your usual moisturiser and drop in the drops, blend together between the palms of your hands and apply. Always remember to wash your hands thoroughly after application and apply with a light touch on tricky areas such as your knees, elbows, hands and feet.
