Travel season is upon us and whether you’re escaping for a weekend break or exploring far-away climes, we’re bringing you our essential guide to tanning so you can enjoy having fun instead of baking in the sun.

This month, we’re taking our cue from Swedish fitness and lifestyle blogger, Faya Nillson who has shared her top tips for healthy travels on her blog, including the Vita Liberata products she packs to keep her skin looking and feeling nourished in the sun.


We love Faya’s advice on holiday skin which includes pre-tanning with pHenomenal 2-3 week mousse and staying safe in the sun with our Passionflower and Argan Oil SPF range.

“I typically like to use a pre-tan product to nourish my skin and give it some bronzed gloss beforehand. I’m particularly fond of this gorgeous Vita Liberata product, which is organic, plant-based, non-toxic, and I accompany it with a complementary line of SPF when I’m at my destination, which will protect you nicely against the strong UV radiation“.

We love Faya’s healthy guide to tanning and have our very own tips and suggestions below for getting the most out of your holiday glow.

1. Pre-Tan – When you arrive at your destination it’s time to fast-track into relaxation mode. Having a natural looking glow when you arrive does wonders for looking and feeling great, especially if sporting your bikini for the first time this year has you feeling nervous. Get yourself a sunless base tan with our pHenomenal 2-3 week mousse, and you don’t need to worry about the pressure of lying in the sun and baking – avoiding unnecessarily damaging your skin. Sunnies on, sit under an umbrella and sip on a cocktail, what more do you need?

2. Protect – If you do decide to catch some rays, make sure you’re protecting your skin. Our Passionflower & Argan Dry Oil Serum For Face is a highly concentrated, non-greasy SPF 30 that’s perfect for the face and décolleté. It conditions and nourishes the skin so can be used daily as a facial moisturiser, with added benefit of being a high quality organic SPF. Take a look at our full range of up to SPF 50 here, and don’t miss  our founder and CEO, Alyson Hogg’s top tips for protecting your skin in the sun.

3. Perfect – Next to the fact that vacations mean escaping from it all, they also present the perfect opportunity to wear all of our favourite summer outfits. Think flirty summer dresses, short shorts and shoulder-baring camisoles. When the sun goes down, add luxury skin to your wardrobe arsenal with our perfecting and illuminating skin finish, Capture the Light. Blend into your décolletage for a subtle shimmer or smooth over your legs for a flawless finish.

Wherever you’re headed this June make sure you’re set for healthy, luxury skin.
