Rimmel’s top tanning tips: 

  1. Mitt up: For a flawless finish use a good quality tanning mitt for a streak-free result 
  2. Go slow: carefully applied layers of tan will build up to a much more natural glow if you apply them one by one, and let the colour dry in between
  3. Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise: Apply moisturiser to your wrists before applying to ensure a subtle fade of colour into your hands.
  4. Drying time: Allow your tan to fully dry before dressing – you don’t want it rubbing against your skin or leaving marks on your clothes! 
  5. Maintain your tan: Take cold showers – hot steamy ones will only encourage the self-tan to break down faster.
