How do self-tanners work?

How do you get a pretty, natural glow or a tan worthy of a tropical holiday without sunbathing? Depending on your preference, you can achieve a beautiful sun-kissed look or a healthy, subtle glow with ease.

When you apply a self-tanner, a molecule named DHA comes in contact with the skin’s amino acids to deepen the colour of your skin. No more fake orange tinge! Clarins blends it with Erythrulose in all its products to ensure even colour. This combination ensures a non-streaky, flattering glow.

Always remember that self-tanning products, whether in capsule or topical form, do not provide protection from the sun. Melanin is what protects our skin from UV rays but you should always strengthen this natural sun protection with an anti-UVA and anti-UVB sunscreen whenever you go outside (and try not to use tanning oils with low SPF!).


Why should I exfoliate my skin before using a self-tanner?

Clarins body product selection

The best way to make your tan last longer and look better is to exfoliate your body with Exfoliating Body Scrub For Smooth Skin prior to applying any type of self-tanning product. It contains exfoliating Bamboo powder, skin-cleansing Moringa extract, plus nourishing Shea oil to make your skin feel soft, smooth, and renewed. This scrub gently polishes and softens the epidermis by eliminating impurities and dead skin cells. It also stimulates skin cell renewal and helps diminish the look of dull, flaky skin.

To use, massage the scrub onto damp or dry skin 1-2 times per week, concentrating on rough areas such as elbows, knees, feet and thighs. Rinse thoroughly. Your skin is resilient, infinitely softer to the touch, and ready to be enveloped in your self-tan afterwards!

For your face, use Gentle Peeling Smooth Away Cream twice per week. This peeling cream is formulated with soothing Primrose extract to gently eliminate dead skin cells and impurities without harsh physical exfoliants like microbeads. Leaving skin soft, smooth and radiant (even for the most sensitive skin types), your face is now well prepared for a flawless tan!


Why do I need to moisturise before applying a self-tanner?

Model Cleansing Face

After exfoliating your face to gently buff away as many dead skin cells as possible, hydrate and nourish your skin to help extend the longevity of the glow - the results from a well moisturised complexion will be that much more luminous and even!

Apply a thirst-quenching, ultra-hydrating moisturiser like Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream to deeply hydrate normal to dry skin. Enriched with organic Leaf of Life extract, it  activates the skin’s self-hydrating process that triggers the production of Hyaluronic Acid in the skin. Your face is now perfectly moisturised and looks fresh, radiant and supple! Need an extra boost for your complexion? Try Hydra-Essentiel Rich Cream for dry skin or add Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum to your routine for an extra layer of intense hydration.

Don't forget about your body - now that you've exfoliated, it's time to moisturise!  Moisture-Rich Body Lotion by Clarins is the perfect hydrator for the job. It intensely soothes and nourishes, while deeply moisturising and visibly smoothing your skin for that irresistible silky softness. Relying on plant extracts like Shea butter, organic Raspberry Water, and Bitter Orange Wax, the expert formulation leaves your skin more beautiful and younger-looking.


How do I choose the right self-tanner?

Clarins offers many different self-tanning textures suited for every type of skin and preference. Take a look at our range of products and choose whether you want the results to be subtle or more intense, depending on the look you want to achieve and the natural melanin levels in your skin. But whichever the texture you choose, remember that your tan won't last more than five days. The tan will gradually fade every time you wash your skin.

Lightweight, refreshing or velvety in texture, all our formulations will feel luxurious on the skin and give it an irresistibly golden glow. You’ll love Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster for Face, Instant Gel or Milky Lotion as you smooth it on from head to toe!

Add a few drops of Radiance-Plus Glow Booster for Face to your Clarins moisturiser for a healthy glow all year round. Alternatively, choose a non-greasy lightweight gel for an intense tan in an instant, or pick with a delectably creamy melting lotion that hydrates for 24 hours while bronzing, moisturising and imparting your skin with the scent of summer.


Which self-tanner can I use on my face?

They all give you a flawless tan, whether you choose the non-greasy Instant Gel which gives you immediate results so you can get dressed straight away, or the creamy Milky Lotion enriched with Aloe vera and organic Fig extract.
Always apply them on clean, moisturised skin and use occasionally for a subtle golden sheen or more frequently for a darker tan. They’ll become your all-season complexion companion in no time!

For a guaranteed healthy glow all year round, use Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster for Face. Just a few drops will do - it works like magic! In the palm of your hand, mix three drops of self-tanner with your Clarins moisturiser to add some sun and radiance to your daily  routine! Your skin tone will gradually tan with a made-to-measure glow for the beauty of summer all year long! Apply evenly to the face, neck and décolleté area for subtle and natural-looking results, even on light skin tones. What a gorgeous golden tan! What tropical beach were you sunbathing on? 


Which self-tanner should I use on my body?

There’s no season for a tanned body! But in winter when your body is covered up under tights, jumpers and big coats, it doesn’t need a self-tanner as often. Pull out all the stops for events or parties where you can spruce up that neckline and beautify your legs with a healthy golden hue.

For golden skin all year round without exposing yourself to the sun, you can use Radiance-Plus Milky Lotion and Radiance-Plus Instant Gel, depending on the texture and intensity of results you prefer. Say hello to a truly natural-looking tan, with fast results that you customise. No more waiting for nice weather or trekking to the beach to get a tan!


How do I apply my self-tanner?

Exfoliate and hydrate your skin for a more radiant and even tan. For more occasional use, remember to use a scrub the night before you apply it. The best way to self-tan is to smooth it on gently, working quickly with a small amount of self-tanner at a time, making sure you avoid the eyebrows and hairline. You’ll need to wash your hands and nails thoroughly after application.

Here's another one of our beauty tips for self-tanning: Wipe off your elbows, knees and heels before the colour sets as they naturally take on more colour, which can cause unevenness. Wait a few minutes before getting dressed as you would after applying any body cream but Clarins self-tanning products do not stain your clothing - what a stress-free way to beautify and get a quick tan!
