My Bondi Sands Tanning Routine

Now I will be honest with you guys; since becoming a mum, my tanning routine has suffered and during Autumn/Winter I tend to not tan at all… I know, its horrible; But I’m pretty much covered neck to ankle in winter anyways, and since I’m time-poor, its best to not waste my tan during Winter time πŸ™‚

But we’re starting to emerge out of the winter shadows here in Sydney, so I thought why not give you guys a run down on my tanning routine; that I used to use, with a few tweaks now that I’m a mum πŸ˜€

So as much as I like the idea of “Tan Thursdays” – Since I don’t really ‘go out’ on weekends, I don’t need a fresh tan for a Friday/Saturday night on the town. So a Tan Saturday or Sunday works better for me, so I have a fresh tan for the week ahead..
And I am not a ‘do a new tan every week’ kinda girl either – More of a fortnightly routine I think works better as a busy working mum πŸ™‚

So essentially my routine is super simple and stock standard:

  1. Shower and exfoliate entire body – Usually I just use the Radox Oxygen body wash (cause it has the little beads in it), and the Bondi Sands Exfoliator Mitt
  2. Once dry; I lather my entire body in the Alpha Keri Skin Moisture Boost Lotion
    I let that soak in and completely dry before I move on. (A.K.A. Stand naked in my bathroom have a mini dance party and air dry lol)
    TIP: I always apply extra moisturiser to my feet, hands, elbows, knees, underarms and collarbone areas as they are more prone to dryness and this helps avoid the tan getting stuck there πŸ™‚
  3. Tan time! I coat myself in the beautiful Bondi Sands Dark Mousse using my Bondi Sands Tanning Mitt – I usually get hubby to do my back as I cannot reach lol
  4. I sleep in my tan overnight, and wash it off the following morning for the ultimate result <3
  5. Daily after I’ve tanned, I use the Bondi Sands Everyday Gradual Tanning Milk to keep my tan beautiful & hydrated
  6. Once I’ve come full circle to my fortnight due date for a tan refresh, I use the Bondi Sands Tan Eraser to get it all off before starting all over again πŸ˜€

It’s not an elaborate step-by-step, but its fairly quick and simple for me πŸ˜€
