Tanning Tips – How to Achieve the Best Fake Tan





Hair Removal


Wax 48 hours before tanning and Shave 24 hours before to allow your skin to recover and your pores to close.




Exfoliate thoroughly 24 hours before tanning. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells from the skins outermost layer to help ensure even coverage on application. After exfoliating moisturise your skin. 


Clean, Dry Skin


Shower 30 minutes before application. This will enable your skin to return to its natural PH balance and allow time for your pores to close. Do not apply body lotion or deodorant before tanning.


Moisturise Areas of Dry Skin


Apply a small amount of moisturiser to areas of dry skin to include hands, elbows, knees and ankles. This will provide a slight barrier and prevent a build up of tan.

Use a bBold Applicator Mitt


Using a bBold Applicator Mitt apply bBold Self Tan to the skin. All products within the bBold Range provide an instant colour therefore there is no risk of leaving areas untreated.


Apply More or Less


The instant colour achieved by bBold products helps indicate the depth of colour your tan will be when fully developed. Apply more or less to achieve your desired colour.


Wear Loose Clothing


Wait 2-5 minutes until your tan is dry before getting redressed. Wear loose dark clothes until your tan is fully developed.


Wait 8 hours


Avoid showering and vigorous exercise for up to 8 hours after application, until your tan is fully developed.

Use a Mild Moisturising Soap


Shower gels with a high PH level can cause your tan to fade from the skin faster. Use a mild moisturising soap to maintain your skins natural PH level and help prolong your tan for longer. 




Your tan will fade away from the skin as dead skin cells erode. To prolong your tan for longer moisturise your skin daily.
