Lucy Watson helps us glow for summer

Lucy Watson is getting us to glow this summer by sharing her beauty tips for applying fake tan. 

The Made in Chelsea star has been unveiled as the first celebrity ambassador for innovative tanning brand, Skinny Tan, and is revealing her top tanning tips for how to look toned and tanned this summer.

Skinny Tan is a bestselling Australian wonder product now gracing British shores, being the first tanner to combine natural tanning properties with a natural cellulite active for dual effect. Skinny Tan helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, contours muscles and improves tone for a better bikini body instantly.

“What I love about Skinny Tan is that it provides a gorgeous even tan, smells great and uses natural products that don’t harm or dry out my skin” Says Lucy.

The Chelsea beauty has teamed up with the brand which is made with a natural tanning active derived from the seeds of the Brassica napus plant, making it is unlikely to cause the dryness or irritation associated with the chemical DHA combined with the ingredient Guarana which is used to help reduce cellulite. With an instant bronzer that makes it very easy to apply, Skinny Tan has a delicious coconut scent replacing the ordinary chemical fake tanner smell and provides a natural tanned tone, which will leave your body looking skinnier and firmer.

For beauty fans who want to get the golden summer glow like Lucy’s, here are her top 10 Tanning Tips:

Start by exfoliating your skin so you have a smooth base to start with.

Apply the tanner in small amounts and work on to the skin gently as you would a moisturiser, this way you’ll reduce the chances of leaving any marks.

It’s always useful to use a tanning mitt when applying at home by yourself as this makes for a smoother application and you wont be left with any of the tanner on your palms.

Keep skin moisturised so that it does not dry out, this also helps maintain your tan so that it looks great and lasts longer.

  • Look for a tanner with natural ingredients, I use Skinny Tan because it has no harsh chemicals and uses a 100% natural DHA tanning active. It has a gorgeous smell too, unlike other fake tanners

Use a tanner with a bronzer, like the Skinny Tan 7 day tanner, this way you have a guide and can see where you have applied the tan so there are no patches missing.

If you plan to shave or wax, do this no less than 24 hours before you tan. 

I find it best to apply tan at night as this way it doesn't disturb my daily routine, and the tan is developed well by the next morning.

If you do decide to tan in the day, wear dark loose fitting clothing. This way you won’t visibly stain your clothes or have patchy marks from anything too tight fitting.

Shower with warm water when using fake tan - water that’s too hot may result in your tan fading faster.
