Product in Focus: Tanning Application Mitt

Product in Focus: Tanning Application Mitt

An application mitt is the quintessential way to make self tanning fool proof. It makes for even coverage that's quick and are insanely simple to use, if you are not using one make sure you start! They also protect your hands from stains and can be used multiple times. 

How to use:

They make tanning a breeze and are very straight forward. Use them to cover both your hands and either make circular motions, interweaving the two or long stroking movement either way they ensure you tan goes on quickly and as easily as possible. They also help problem areas like elbows, knees and the back create a much more even and less tricky. 

How to clean:

Once you have applied your tan you can soak the mitts in warm water to loosen any tanner that is still on them. If you feel they need a more extensive clean then add some soap or cleanser. We recommend using a body cleanse that your skin is already receptive towards, you don't have to use a lot but it just eliminates any chance of a reaction or harshness from other soaps and detergents on your skin the next time you tan. 

Rinse again with water and lay flat to dry, you can hang them out but we find laying them flat helps to keep their shape and ultimately longevity. 

When to replace:

Like most beauty application products there will come a time when you need to replace them, we recommend doing so every 4-6months to keep your tan fresh and allow the mitts to work really effectively.
