Can I add more tan on top of an existing fake tan?

A professional spray tan can take up to a week to fully fade as your old skin cells flake away to reveal new ones beneath.

We’d advise waiting until your colour has completely faded away before stepping back in the booth to ensure even coverage and to give your new tan the best chance to last as long as possible.

However, that’s not to say you can’t top up an existing tan if you’ve got a special occasion or event coming up. You can even-up or add a layer of radiance to your tan.

Even-up a tan

You can even-up a tan that’s started to fade in patches with the Sienna X Q10 Self Tan Mist. This handy aerosol is perfect for on-the-go top-ups. It can be sprayed directly onto areas that have started to lose their glow. This gold – standard tanning mist develops in 4-8 hours and lends the skin a gorgeous sun-kissed finish. Make sure to focus on the spots where your tan needs a pick-me-up. Be careful not to over-do it on darker areas in order to cleverly balance out your complexion.

Add a layer of radiance

Add additional radiance to a fading tan by applying Sienna X Gradual Self Tan Lotion in the morning. This moisturising formula doesn’t need to be washed off like traditional tanners and develops over the course of the day. A single application can extend your colour for a few more days and balance out an uneven fade off.

Once your special event is over, allow your tan to fade away in full and exfoliate your skin a day before your next spray tan. This creates the perfect base for a new application of tanner.

The natural look

Consider adding a layer of the Sienna X Gradual Rose Water Self Tan Mist; this bronzing mist helps replenish and hydrate skin, with results lasting up to 3 days. You will also have a routine favourite product that pairs well with The Skincare Collection for it’s nourishing ingredients.

The 3D effect

This product will have you standing out from the crowd for all the right reasons. The Sienna X Skin Finish Illuminating Mist helps restore skin moisture and contains light reflecting pigments, creating a dewy, luminous sheen finish for a 3D skin finish. This mist is application friendly for all skin types, suitable for use on the face as well as the body.

By choosing one or more of these tanning additions from the Sienna X range, you can extend and prolong your pre-existing tan for longer.
