Why Winter is the Perfect Time to Apply Your Self-Tanner

Jun 19, 2024

Winter might bring shorter days and chilly nights, but it doesn't have to mean saying goodbye to your sun-kissed glow. In fact, winter is the perfect time to achieve and maintain a beautiful, natural tan with our self-tanner. Here's why you should embrace self-tanning during the colder months and how it can transform your winter skincare routine.

Benefits of using Part Time Tan in Winter

  1. Combat the Winter Blues: Winter often brings a lack of sunlight, which can leave your skin looking dull and pale. A self-tan can instantly lift your spirits by giving your skin a radiant, healthy glow, boosting your confidence and mood.
  2. Moisturise Dry Winter Skin: Cold weather and indoor heating can dry out your skin, making it look flaky and dull. PART TIME TAN contains Coffee bean extract which helps to moisturise the skin and, best of all, helps fight early signs of ageing.
  3. Avoid UV Damage: Self-tanners allow you to achieve a gorgeous tan without exposing your skin to harmful UV rays, reducing the risk of premature ageing and skin cancer.
  4. Look Great for Winter Events: The holiday season is filled with parties and gatherings. A natural-looking tan can complement your winter wardrobe, enhancing your overall appearance and ensuring you look your best at every event.
  5. Easy to Maintain: Winter clothing, such as long sleeves and pants, helps protect your tan from fading quickly. With less sun exposure and cooler temperatures, your self-tan can last longer and require fewer touch-ups. Especially whilst incorporating our Always moisturiser for long-lasting tan.


Step 1: Preparation For an even, streak-free tan, start with clean, exfoliated skin. Use our BEFORE body scrub to remove dead skin cells and ensure a smooth canvas for your tan. Make sure your skin is completely dry before application.

Step 2: Application Using a clean self-tanning mitt, apply PART TIME TAN in long sweeping motions to your legs, arms, and body. Use the residue on the mitt to lightly buff your face, elbows, and knees. Ensure the tan is dry to the touch before dressing.

Step 3: Developing Time

  • Light Tan: Leave on for 3-4 hours before rinsing off.
  • Medium Tan: Leave on for 4-6 hours before rinsing off.
  • Deep Tan: Apply a second coat after 15 minutes and sleep in the tan.

Step 4: Rinse and Maintain After the desired developing time, rinse your tan off in a warm shower. Pat your skin dry with a towel. To extend the life of your tan, finish with our ALWAYS moisturiser and AFTER oil.
