1) Lock in moisture

Use a mild, natural moisturising cleanser, such as a rich serum, together with a moisturiser for the face and body to lock in hydration and protect skin from dryness. Gradual tan lotions such as St.Tropez Gradual Tan Body Lotion Light/Medium are a great way to inject moisture and subtly build a gradual sunkissed glow.

TOP TIP: Make sure you stick to your skin routine by keeping all your products on your bedside table. That way, even if you’re tired you’ll have no excuse to do it.

 2) Exfoliate

Exfoliating is essential for soft, supple skin.  Use a body polish a few times each week to keep dry, lacklustre skin at bay.

#PROTIP: Prepare your skin for a year-long glow with St.Tropez Tan Enhancing Body Polish– it leaves the skin silky smooth and is specially formulated to work with self-tans allowing you to achieve a flawless result.

3)  Golden Glow

A subtle golden glow is the easiest way to make skin appear instantly healthier.  Opt for our instant tan range  for a no commitment easy glow or build up the colour daily with our gradual tan range.

#PROTIP: For the most natural finish, choose a tanning product that’s close to your skin tone. St.Tropez’s wardrobe of self-tan products caters for Light/Medium or Medium/Dark tones.

 4) Beauty know-how

Sometimes a little beauty know-how is all you need to create a faux glow and brighten up a winter complexion. For example, a clever dusting of St.Tropez Powder Matte Bronzer can instantly lift your features and give the appearance of healthier looking skin.

 5) A healthy diet

A healthy diet means a healthy glow. Almonds and brazil nuts are rich in high quality fatty acids and oils, reducing inflammation and aiding skin repair. That said, cut down on the sweet stuff and fill up on the likes of nuts, citrus fruit and green veggies, which all have multi skin cleansing qualities.

TOP TIP: Purchase a smoothie maker and take a smoothie to work every day- you’d be surprised how easy it is to get your 5 a day!


Don’t forget, water really does keep you feeling fresh and your skin hydrated, improving skin colour and elasticity. So, remember to also drink 8 glasses of water a day. The end result… If you feel good, you’ll look good!

TOP TIP: Make plain water more exciting by adding mint leaves, lemon zest or watermelon to provide a bit of flavour.

Remember, summer may be over but nothing will stop a true tanner from achieving a flawless year round glow! Shop St.Tropez now.

    Hi I have really sensitive skin and found there is no where to test your products before I buy them to see if my skin can tolerate it, is there any where I can get testers from as I’d really like to try your tan. Thanks Lisa x

    I have used St. Tropez products for years now, and have inquired about becoming a licensed pro in a salon here in the US, but haven’t been able to get in contact with anyone.
    Can you point me in the right direction as far as a US contact that I could reach out to?
    Thank you in advance!
