We all want to know how to hold onto that natural looking summer glow, and now your tan can last longer than ever with Vita Liberata’s limited edition Tan Extend Kit, available now for only $39 (usually $55).

The Tan Extend Kit includes pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Mousse (Medium 50ml), a Mini Tan Mitt for flawless application and Fabulous Self Tanning Gradual Lotion (200ml) that can be used regularly to boost or extend your tan.

Follow these simple steps for the easiest sunless tanner experience that looks incredibly natural and lasts longer.

Prep your skin:

Exfoliate to remove any dead skin cells, pay particular attention to your knees, elbows, ankles and knuckles.

Top Tip: Use an oil-free exfoliator such as our Super Fine Skin Polish. Oil and cream based shower lotions or exfoliators can leave a film on the skin that can block the tan effect, so avoid moisturizing shower creams completely!

Shave your legs 12-24 hours prior to tanning. If you wax, allow 24 hours before tanning. Don’t apply moisturiser before tanning as this can block the tan or leave you streaky. Vita Liberata formulas are super hydrating so will act as a moisturiser and a tanner.

Application:

pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan 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 you can avoid that tell-tale tan smell and post application patchiness completely.

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 pHenomenal 3 times, leaving each application to develop for 3-8 hours before showering with water only and reapplying.

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.

Prolonging your tan:

Use Fabulous Self Tanning Gradual Lotion like a normal body lotion daily, or as regularly as you wish, to keep the skin hydrated and boost your pHenomenal colour, allowing it to last as long as possible.

Top Tip: When showering in the days and weeks after tanning, make sure to pat your skin dry, as rubbing with a towel will accelerate the fade.
