Each skin type follows its own ‘tanning path’. For the first time, Clarins Research evaluated the quality of a tan obtained with Self Tanning Milky-Lotion and compared it to a tan obtained naturally, in the sun. Using the colorimetric data, Clarins was able to characterize the evolution of the different grades of colour the skin takes on when tanning.

This tanning process follows the same ‘path’ in both instances, whether after using Self Tanning Milky-Lotion or during the natural tanning process. The smooth, milky texture of the Self Tanning Milky-Lotion glides on effortlessly and is quickly absorbed. Application is fast and perfectly even. Delicately tanned, the skin radiates beauty from head to toe, safely and without the harmful effects of UV rays!

Selected for their known moisturising and skin-softening properties, fig and aloe vera extracts provide multiple benefits. Fig extract encourages the production of filaggrin, a key protein that optimizes skin hydration. The complementary action of aloe vera helps keep water in skin cells to prevent dehydration. Self Tanning Milky-Lotion is therefore able to offer 24-hour hydration. Soft and smooth, the skin retains a radiant, beautiful-looking tan, longer. Skin feels soft and comfortable, results are long-lasting.

The fragrance makes it easy to forget that a self-tanner is being applied! Self Tanning Milky-Lotion promotes a unique sensorial experience, all wrapped up in a delicioius fragrance. Easily absorbed, it is possible to get dressed quickly after use.

Clarins advice for a flawless tan.

Tip 1: Exfoliate!
Prepare the skin beforehand by carrying out a thorough exfoliation of the face and body. Concentrate on elbows and knees. Once exfoliated, the skin is prepared to better absorb Self Tanning Milky-Lotion.

Tip 2: Moisturise for beautiful skin!
Morning and evening, hydrate the skin with your regular body lotion. Your tan will look even more radiant and will last longer.

Tip 3: Apply your product correctly!
Place product in the palm of your hands. Hold hands flat and smooth over dry skin with light, sweeping movements. Avoid the eyebrows and hairline. Renew application until the desired tanned colour is achieved then re-apply on a regular basis to maintain results.

Tip 4: Avoid streaking!
After each use, wash your hands well with soap. Wait a few minutes before getting dressed.
