A healthy, glowing complexion is the holy grail to most of us.
But if you want to keep your skin wrinkle-free and healthy, actually tanning yourself in the sun is a big no-no.
And – as a general rule – self-tanners for your face can be a risky operation. Because while it is one thing concealing a tan that has gone on wonky and streaky on your arms or legs, it is a lot harder to do so when it has happened to your face.
But now all these worries are so yesteryears, because the geniuses at St Tropez have come up with a whole new solution – and it is so brilliant that it has beauty editor after beauty editor singing its praise.
Say hello to the St.Tropez Self Tan Express Face Sheet Mask.
Sheet masks are, of course, a real beauty biggie in the skincare world of late, and now the clever minds at our favourite sunless tanner brand have gone a step further and added ingredients that gradually bronze your skin into a mask.
In short; it is the product you have been searching for your whole freaking life, delivering a radiant, healthy glow that perfectly suits your skin tone. The best bit? It doesn’t smell weird or dry out your skin, instead leaving it dewy and glowing, with a colour that looks like you just stepped off the beach.
How it works?
Simply clean your skin as you normally would, then unfold mask and apply to face.
Then (after you wash your hands to avoid your palms getting a colour too) you simply relax and let the mask do its job. Leave it on five minutes for a natural, light glow, ten minutes for a medium colour and 15 minutes for a deeper tan.
Now, remove and throw out the mask, and gently massage the excess serum around the eyes and hairline blending into the neck and décolletage – and wash your hands again after.
Abd, here’s the genius bit, after application, your skin will be left with a dewy glow and the self-tan actives will continue to work for up to eight hours, developing and deepening into your chosen shade.
Summer glow, we are coming for you.
