Celeb Bronzing Tips from St. Tropez Tan’s Skin-glow Guru Fiona Locke
MM: I remember self-tanner in the 80’s and 90’s was messy, smelly and streaky. How have the products of today changed?
Fiona: The technology of self tanning is so different now. As I mentioned above, you now have the right tools to apply your self tanning products. Even more amazing than that is St. Tropez came up with an advanced technology that completely removes the scent of tanning and leaves you with a clean fresh scent suitable for a woman or a man. This changed the world of tanning for so many.
MM: What are three essential tips to create a perfect, natural self-tan?
Fiona: Always make sure you prep your skin with a great body polish. This will exfoliate the dead skin cells and leave your skin ready to evenly absorb color. Also, leave your skin free of oil and lotion prior to application with the exception of the dry areas of your body that may go a little too dark. I suggest a light layer of lotion on feet, hands, knees, elbows and ankles to keep these areas even. Also always protect your finger and toe nails with a little lotion before you tan and gently wipe them off when you are finished.
MM: Best bronzing beauty products?
Fiona: All time favorite for me…. St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse and Mitt. I am also a huge fan of the St. Tropez “One Night Only”. This is a temporary body bronzer that works wonders for the client with a fear of commitment.
