It’s safe, effective, easy to apply and makes any summer ’fit look better – enter now and you could win a R1 000 hamper from Caribbeantan! 

Summer is here and so are floral bikinis, open-toe sandals and weekends away. We all know that a strategically applied self-tanner can transform you into the bronzed goddess you’ve always known you could be. No matter if your skin tone is pale, olive or rich, self-tanner looks good on absolutely everyone and a little bronzed glow will instantly make you feel more confident this summer. Enter the competition below to stand a chance of winning one of six R1 000 hampers from Caribbeantan.

But first, allow Caribbeantan to assist you in finding your perfect shade to complement your natural skin tone and keep you looking like a natural beauty. Finding your perfect shade really is as easy as A, B, C:

Step 1 Identify your skin tone

Skin type A This is for people who have a naturally fair complexion and usually burn easily when they’re exposed to the sun. If you struggle to get a natural tan and often end up going red and peeling, this is your skin tone.

Skin type B This is for people who have a medium complexion and who only burn sometimes, when exposed to the sun’s rays. These people usually only get burnt in summer and can achieve a natural tan quite quickly when exposed to the sun. If your skin reacts to sunshine quite quickly and tans easily, then you would most probably be this skin tone.

Skin type C This is for people who have a naturally dark complexion, and who rarely burn when exposed to the sun. If you rarely get sunburn when exposed to the sun and tend to darken quite quickly, then you likely have a darker skin tone and would identify as having skin type C.

It is important to select the right product for your skin tone to achieve the best results.

Step 2 Decide on a product

Next up you’ll need to decide which type of self-tanner works best for you. You can select between an instant tanner, which is perfect for when you’re on your way out and want to look tanned NOW; or a gradual tanner, this is great if you’re a little nervous and would prefer to build up your tan over a few hours.

Step 3 Select your application method

This really is personal preference. Are you more comfortable handling a mousse, a spritzer or an aerosol? Feel free to try different products, until you find the perfect application method for you and your lifestyle. And finally, always use a tanning mitt when applying self-tanner.
