How to apply your pHenomenal 2-3 week tan
pHenomenal 2-3 week tan has taken the world by storm, winning awards across the globe and featuring on Good Morning America, QVC Today’s Special Value, The Today Show, This Morning and many many more.
So what makes pHenomenal 2-3 self tanner so different? Well it gives the world’s longest lasting tan result, up to four times longer than regular self-tans.
It is filled with additional tan innovations such as anti-age conditioning, Odour Remove™ technology for zero smell, Moisture Locking for 72 hour skin hydration, organic extracts and a perfect fade back to nothing, so no tell-tale tan smell or post application patchiness.
Follow these simple steps to ensure your sunless tanner experience is as easy as applying your favourite body lotion, and as flawless as a natural suntan.
Step 1. Prep your skin:
Exfoliate to remove any dead skin cells, pay particular attention to your knees, elbows, ankles and knuckles.
Top Tip: Use an exfoliator with a moisturising base, such as our Super Fine Skin Polish. Oil based exfoliators tend to leave a film on the skin that can block the tan effect!
Shave your legs 12-24 hours prior to tanning, if you wax allow 24 hours before tanning! Do not apply a moisturiser before pHenomenal, the formulation is very hydrating.
Step 2. Application:
Whether you are using a mousse or a lotion apply to the skin using a tanning it. Use long circular movements, starting from the bottom of the limb working up to the top. Use sparingly on knees, elbows, hands and feet. For best results start and finish your tanning in one application without interruption. Your whole body tan will take about 5 minutes and the tan dries on contact, so you can get dressed again immediately.
For the longest lasting tan apply the tan 3 times, leave each application to develop 3-24 hours, rinse off the guide colour (no need to use shower gel) and reapply.
Top Tip: Don’t tan between the fingers and toes, this can give an unnatural look, as the sun wouldn’t normally tan those areas. Use a wipe to gently wipe off excess from your nails, knuckles, elbows, knees, heels and the wrist area.
Step 3. Tanning your face:
When tanning your face mix two parts of your regular moisturiser with one part pHenomenal. Apply to your face, neck and décolleté blending into your shoulders and chest. To extend your face tan try our brand new Self Tanning Night Moisture Mask for a hydrating, hint-of-a-tint skin finish.
Step 4. Prolonging your tan:
Moisturise twice a day to keep the skin hydrated and boost your pHenomenal colour allowing it to last as long as possible.
Top Tip: Avoid moisturizers with essentials oils as they can remove the colour. Try our Moisture Boost Treatment for best results.
