Well if you haven’t already worked it out, we are just slightly obsessed with tanning at Perle Co. HQ. Being serial fake tanners for many years now we have picked up many helpful tips for anyone wanting to take their tan to the next just in time for New Years! 

Apart from the more common protocols you follow when fake tanning- exfoliate, moisturise dry patches, rinse with no soap and wear loose clothing while it develops. There are a couple more things we’ve noticed that seriously make a difference to the darkness of our tans. 

So let's get to it!


Rinse in a cool shower for no longer than 30 secs once the tan has developed. You’ll be able to shower properly later on but for now a small rinse with no soap is going to help get that tan to stick nicely and go lovely & bronze. 


Moisturise like it’s no ones business. Seems obvious but truly if you moisturise as often as you can you’re tan will stay nicer and for longer. We’ve found the richer the cream (body butter), the better the length of tan. 


Ever found that sometimes you have the best tan of your life then the next time it’s nowhere near as dark and hardly last as long. Well it’s not just chance or a bad tanner, it’s actually much more scientific than that. Some body washes and moisturisers can unbalanced the skins PH levels causing your tan to turn more orange, or not absorb as well. Ways to avoid this is to check your body wash is PH balanced or use water only one or two showers leading up to your tan if your that committed. This one has been tried and tested multiple times now and lets just say it really does make a difference. Some would say it’s even worth stinking over. 

Don’t worry ladies this is something we’ve been playing with and could very well be a potential product to the Perle Co. range in 2020. Let us know if anyone out there would love a quick easy spritz that would help darken, give a better hue of colour and increase the length of their tan?

Happy glowing babes!
