Everything you need to know about self tanners

The time you should wait, the best time of day to use them, if they are the same for men and women… everything to achieve a gradual tone without endangering your skin.

The fact that melanoma is more of a threat than a real one makes resorting to self-tanners, even if it’s just to achieve a light shade of tan , a solution for many. Effective and healthy.

They have improved to unsuspected limits, they no longer leave different stains or rings, the fingers are not noticeable, the yellow hands… that is why we have asked Jordan Cook, Tanning Expert from St Moriz for Sport and Life, to clarify any doubts regarding how and when to use it.

Everything you need to know about self-tanners

When is the best time of year to use St Moriz products?

All year. Whether there is a radiant sun or rain. Getting a St. Moriz tan will make you feel like you just stepped off the plane from your vacation flaunting a perfect tan!

And the best time of day to apply it?

You can apply St. Moriz products at any time of the day. We suggest tanning with color guide products (mousse and lotion) before going to bed, this way the tan develops longer. Upon waking up, one takes a shower and starts the day without having to worry about any transfer – stain on clothes. On the other hand, our graduals can be applied at any time of the day and this gradually increases its radiance and gives the skin the ideal hydration for the whole day!

How many hours do we have to wait before taking a shower?

We recommend waiting at least 4-6 hours for maximum effect. If you can leave it a little longer, even better!

What not to do when using self-tanning products

Shaving or waxing should be done at least 24 hours before self-tan application. In this way the product will not block open pores or irritate the skin. Before applying St.Moriz it is necessary to prepare the skin by exfoliating it and removing any traces of previous self-tanner. Moisturize your elbows, hands, feet, and any other areas where your skin feels a little drier to ensure your tan blends evenly around these areas.

Is it the same for men and women?

Exactly the same process – Men with facial or body hair may find it better to use a gradual lotion, as this will absorb much more easily into the skin.

Can the same self-tanner be used on the face and body without any problem?

Of course yes! Our products can be applied both on the face and on the body ; however, for those with more sensitive skin, we suggest using our gradual bronzers on your face or mixing the Advanced Pro Facial Serum with your daily moisturizer, as it will provide an even, flawless glow without breaking your skincare routine.
