We caught up with James to discover some of his top tips for using the products in the 3 Piece Premium Tanning Discovery Collection…
The Gradual Tan for the face:
"Use a finger tip amount and blend right up to the hairline, over the jawline and onto the neck. For a tanning pick-me up, use four to five days after applying Liquid Tan to lift and prolong colour."
The Liquid Tan:
"For a flawless, professional finish, apply using my tanning mitt (included) and work into the skin using downward strokes. Avoid applying a fully-loaded mitt of product directly onto the face, hands and feet as they tend to develop a darker colour."
The wash-off Body Tan:
"For best results, apply using my tanning mitt using long, sweeping strokes to ensure colour is blended evenly. Allow to dry for a few minutes before dressing. For a deeper shade, apply a second coat."
