Our Summer Skin Tanning Guide

Public service announcement – the days of lying out in the sun endlessly tanning are OUT, this summer were all about SPF 50 baby.

If we’re honest with you, the skincare lovers here at Ella Bache HQ hung up their sun tanning shoes a long time ago. But, after a long stint in lockdown and the silly season well and truly upon us we thought it was high time we got glowing. So, with a sun-soaked summer ahead of us we have the perfect self-tanners for you, packed with bronze illuminators and enriched with Shea Butter, Honey-Moist and a blend of powerful Antioxidants… it’s time for you, to rediscover your glow.


When it comes to self-tanning, its all about preparation, and exfoliation is key.

It’s important to take the time to thoroughly address hair removal and exfoliation, giving yourself 24 hours prior to application. The process of exfoliation not only buffs away dead skin-cells, but it also ensures a streak free tan and eliminates the possibility of dry patches. And, while we have you – we recommend in investing in a self-tanning mitt; offering optimal results and minimal product wastage, it protects hands from unwanted stains, whilst speeding up the application process, simply start with small amounts and smooth over skin in circular motions.
