When it comes to achieving a natural-looking, sun-kissed glow, we’ve got you covered! Follow these simple yet effective Tan Commandments for fuss-free, beautifully bronzed summer skin:

Prep for perfection by doing everything else first. Exfoliate, shave and paint your nails prior to applying your tan.

Exfoliate. Use our Exfoliating Mitt to buff away dead skin cells. Or, if you’re a Body Smooth fan, exfoliate the day before tanning to ensure its nourishing oils do not cause an uneven finish.

Keep it clean. Avoid moisturising prior to self-tanning so that you start with a fresh, clean base.

Don’t skip a mitt! Instead of applying the tanning product directly to your skin, dispense a pump onto our Tanning Mitt then clench your fist to spread the product out. Next, apply to your skin: this will ensure a more even application.

Bottoms up! Work the tan into your skin from your feet upwards to avoid the product applying unevenly on other areas.

Beware of dry patches. Elbows, knees, hands and feet are all prone to pick up additional product. After applying tan in these areas, gently wipe with a damp cloth to smooth the product out.

Don’t sweat it! To ensure an even result, avoid any activities which might make you sweat or get wet while your tan is developing.

Wash your hands. Once you’ve finished applying your tan, carefully wash your hands. This will prevent the product settling on your palms, knuckles and between fingers.

Tan and repeat! Build a natural looking tan by gently exfoliating any dry patches of skin and repeating application every 3-4 days.

Tan around your schedule. If there’s a special occasion coming up in your diary, Sun Drench Overnight Tanning Mousse will work best to deliver a sun-kissed glow whilst you sleep. If you’re dressing for a week of warm weather, our Summer Skin Gradual Tanning Lotion will build a natural looking, gradual tan. Caught off-guard by an unseasonably sunny day? Reach for our Instant Glow Perfecting Leg Serum to immediately bronze skin.

Now that you’ve got your tanning know-how down, there’s nothing standing in the way of you achieving your most radiant sun-free tan yet! Total tanning confidence is on the horizon - even if the sun stays behind the clouds.

In the run up to what is most certainly one of the more delicious public holidays.. we've teamed up with vegan blogger Petite Elise to bring you two irresistible pancake recipes inspired by your favourite Tropic products.

Last week we shared a pancake recipe that paid homage to our bestselling Wild Mint, Lime and Pineapple Body Wash - a heavenly delicious, coconutty delight! If you missed it, click here.  

Now that the big day's here we've got your second, equally delectable recipe inspired by our Organic Elixir Age-Defying Facial Oil. So make sure you stack your tower high as these pancakes are the definition of moreish! Read on for the recipe.

ROSE-INFUSED BUCKWHEAT PANCAKES WITH CARAMELISED PLUMS, KIWI AND CHIA SEED PUDDING

Ingredients for the pancakes:

1 banana
1 cup of buckwheat flour
1 cup of plant-based milk
1 chia egg (1/2 tbsp chia seeds, mixed with 2 tbsp water, set aside for 5 minutes)
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup of buckwheat flour
2 tsp rose water

Toppings:

4 plums
1 kiwi
Agave syrup
1 tbsp soya yogurt
Dried rose petals

Method:

Simply place all pancake ingredients in a blender and whiz it all up.

Heat up a large pan and carefully pour out your pancakes onto the pan (we normally cook three at a time).

Once they start to form large bubbles on the top, carefully flip them over and cook on the other side. This usually takes about 3 minutes on each side when the pan is nice and hot.

At the same time, place chopped plum slices in a pan with 1-2 tbsp of agave syrup and allow them to caramelise, occasionally stirring.

To make the chia seed pudding, mix the chia seeds with the soya yogurt and set aside, allowing the chia seeds time to expand.

Stack the pancakes and top with your chia seed pudding, caramelised plums, kiwi, some more agave syrup and sprinkle in dried rose petals!

Your outfits are planned, wellies packed, and the out-of-office is officially on. Yes, festival season is well and truly here and we’ve got the beauty saviours you need to get the most out of your festival experience.

GET PREPPED WITH A PRE-FESTIVAL TAN

British summers can come up short in the tanning department. So, before heading off to your festival escape, top up your tan with our award winning Summer Skin Gradual Tanning Lotion.  This silky bronzing lotion contains a new generation of patented technology called plant allo-melanin, which mimics the colour of your own melanin to create a gorgeous natural tan that won't wash away in the rain. 

STAY RADIANT ALL DAY LONG

The secret to all-day radiance? Our Summer Goddess Shimmering Body Oil. Its natural glitter particles catch the light to give skin a beautiful holiday glow and, thanks to exotic notes of Tahitian and bourbon vanilla, it smells incredible too. Pair with our velvet-smooth Cream Highlighter for illuminated cheekbones and you can forget the main stage because all eyes will be on you.

GIVE LIPS SOME TLC  

Even if you don’t usually suffer from chapped lips, all that time spent outdoors can take its toll. Keep them hydrated and glossy with our deeply nourishing Lip Love Balm. Enriched with shea and cocoa butters, sweet orange and rosehip oils, it replenishes dry and cracked lips. And, for only £5 it’s an absolute steal.

POST-FESTIVAL RelaxATION  

Have a pick-me-up waiting for you at home. After all the action, you’ll thank yourself for it! There’s no better remedy for tired festival skin than an indulgent bath with our Soothe The Senses Luxury Body Oil. Stick on your new favourite band from the weekend and prepare to be transported away back to festival nirvana as you relax and unwind to tropical scents of frangipani, apricot and rosehip.  

Let us know which are your festival beauty essentials by messaging us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.

Forget that 'just tangoed' look – getting that coveted golden glow couldn't be easier with Sun Drops Gradual Tanning Facial Serum.

WHAT ARE SUN DROPS?

These intelligent drops, which have been named 'best facial fake tan' by the prestigious Good Housekeeping Institute,  are the next generation in facial tanning.

Packed with plant allo-melanin, which mimics your skin's own melanin, Sun Drops make it easy to create a custom shade for a natural-looking, streak-free finish.

Natural caramel extract acts as a guide colour, ensuring you don't miss a spot, while its signature cocktail of nutritious tropical ingredients - think passion fruit, coconut water and aloe vera - brightens and hydrates skin from the very first use.

HOW TO APPLY
How to use Sun Drops Gradual Tanning Facial Serum with Jess Beautician - YouTube

For best results, make sure your skin is clean and dry before you begin.

STEP 1 – Grab your favourite moisturiser (Skin Revive, we’re looking at you) and pump a pea-sized amount into the palm of your hand.

STEP 2 – Squeeze the handy pipette to release a few drops of your Sun Drops Serum onto the moisturiser. Two to three drops will reveal a healthy subtle colour, while four to six drops creates a deeper tan. Mix in well to create your custom shade.

STEP 3 – Apply to your entire face, just as you would normally with your everyday moisturiser. Remember to spread all the way down to your neck and décolletage for an all-over natural finish. And, don't forget eyelids, ears and your hairline too for totally even coverage.

TOP TIP – Don't forget to wash your hands afterwards.

Your tan will develop over the next 10 hours to reveal a perfectly tailored tan. Follow with your usual makeup routine or leave skin bare while Sun Drops gets to work. You’ll notice that your skin looks brighter and more youthful too. That’s all thanks to tropical passion fruit extract delivering a hit of vitamin C.

We recommend making Sun Drops a part of your skincare regime to maintain a beautiful glow all year-long. There’s no need to use them everyday, simply use as many drops as you want, as often as you want. It’s time to take control of your tan!

DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT...

Did you know? Sun Drops is now Good Housekeeping Institute approved! That’s right, it’s been rigorously tried and tested by their team of beauty experts and came out on top.

‘Sun Drops Gradual Tanning Facial Serum provided a natural-looking tan and gave a healthy glow to the face without any streaking.’

- Sabaa Hamid, Good Housekeeping Institute Beauty Tester
