As winter creeps in and we bid adieu to the sun, there’s no need to wave goodbye to that sun kissed radiance too. Kissed by Mii Tanning Expert Shelley Henderson shares a few simple tips to keep a healthy, natural looking glow all through winter.
We’re naturally going to be fairer in the winter, so opt for a lighter version of your summer colour; just a shade or two darker than your natural skin tone will give a subtle, healthy glow. A tanning product with moisturising benefits is ideal in winter as skin tends to be drier.
Kissed by Mii Effortlessly Easy Tanning Lotion and Mousse contain marine mineral extracts to condition skin and are available in three shades; Delicately Light, Beautifully Medium and Deliciously Dark.
If you’re new to self-tanning and want to take it slowly, try a gradual tanning lotion which will build your colour with each application. Apply daily until you reach your desired depth, then every 3-4 days to maintain the colour.
Our Daily Boost gradual tanning crèmes let you build your colour and come in two formulas – for face and for body.
Soften and smooth
Dry or rough skin is the most common culprit of an uneven tan, so preparation and aftercare make all the difference. Exfoliate thoroughly before applying tan and keep skin moisturised before and after application – especially important in the drying, colder months. After about 4 days, exfoliate gently to encourage even fading of the colour.
Kissed by Mii Seriously Smoothing Exfoliator is ideal for both face and body and gently sloughs away dead, dry skin with superfine exfoliating beads. Seriously Smoothing Moisturiser should be applied both before and after the tan to maintain a smooth, even colour. The nourishing blend of marine mineral extracts leaves skin deeply moisturised while plant collagen helps to prolong the tan.
Shimmer as you shimmy
And when it comes to Christmas party season, there’s nothing like a bit of shimmer to light up the dance floor. Dust some of your favourite skin illuminator over shoulders, arms, legs and decollate, or use a shimmer tanning product for that extra wow factor.
Kissed by Mii’s Instant Shimmer Temporary Tanning Lotion is perfect to top up an existing tan, or if you’re a little behind in your tanning schedule, it adds an instant hit of colour that lasts all night, until you choose to wash it off.
