Self-Tanning At Home (Tips + Products)

Self-Tanning At Home (Tips + Products)

As the global pandemic continues, I have decided to write another blog post about pampering yourself at home. I know that many of us dream about having that summer tan and are so eager to start working on it as soon as possible, but due to the current circumstances, it may be hard to achieve. It is very important now that we all stay home to flatten the curve of the virus, so in this blog post I am sharing with you all of my favourite products for self-tanning at home.

They are all from St. Tropez because duh, it is the best when it comes to that beautiful glow! ✨


Before we start, here is a very simplified guide to self-tanning (remember that different products may have different instructions, so make sure you always read the directions):

Step 1: Exfoliate 24 hours prior to self-tanning and moisturize any dry areas such as elbows, knees, ankles and feet.
Step 2: For best results, apply using a mitt in long sweeping motions, starting at the ankles and working your way up. Then for your back, turn the mitt back to front and start applying in the same way. Ensure all areas are covered before lightly gliding any excess tan from a mitt over your hands and feet.
Step 3: Wait until touch dry before getting dressed.
Step 4: Allow 4-8 hours before showering to reveal your developed tan.
Step 5: To prolong and maintain your tan, moisturize daily, exfoliate regularly and reapply as desired.


Classic Bronzing Mousse

First, let’s start off with the Classic Bronzing Mousse, which is the most iconic product from St. Tropez. It gives a natural, lightweight and healthy-looking tan that tailors to your individual skin tone, for the long-lasting tan in one application. It is very easy to apply and has a velvety texture that delivers an all-over even that. Another very important thing about this product is that it has no self tan smell, which is really nice if you are easily bothered by different scents!

Whether you’re a first-time tanner or a total pro, this product is perfect for anyone looking to get a natural-looking, streak-free golden tan that dries in an instant.


Gradual Tan Watermelon Infusion

This is a really nice product as it a body lotion that applied regularly, gradually builds a flawless and light sun-kissed glow, with a light and refreshing watermelon scent and up to 72-hour moisturization. Infused with Hyaluronic acid and a refreshing watermelon extract, this ultra-lightweight lotion absorbs instantly, deeply nourishing and moisturizing the skin for an even and streak free glow.

St. Tropez’s Gradual Tan Watermelon Infusion is perfect for anyone who wants to build their glow over time and have a full control of their desired depth of tan.


Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Gel 

St. Tropez’s Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Gel is a very unique product as it has a clear and lightweight gel-to-water formula that develops into a natural looking medium golden glow in just 3 hours! With no need to rinse off, this tropically scented, non-sticky and fast-absorbing gel provides up to 72 hours of hydration, for a long-lasting and even tan. It is also infused with natural skincare actives and hyaluronic acid to plump, regenerate and protect the skin.

This product is perfect for anyone who is on a tight schedule and wants to get a glow as quickly as possible!
