Achieving a Deeper Glow: Mastering the Art of Applying a Second Coat of Bronzie Tan

Get ready to unlock the secrets of elevating your tan. Today, we'll delve into the technique of applying a second coat of tan to intensify the colour and achieve that desirable sun-kissed radiance. It's important to keep in mind that an excessive amount of DHA can lead to dryness, but fret not! For those with drier skin, we have an ideal solution: building your tan gradually with a hydrating, gradual tan product. This way, you can enhance your glow while maintaining optimal skin hydration. So, let's delve into the art of perfecting your luminous radiance!

Hydrating Dry Skin: Dry skin can sometimes be a challenge when it comes to tanning. If you fall into this category, don't fret! Bronzie has a perfect solution for you. Rather than applying a double dose of DHA-rich tan, consider opting for building it with Bronzie's Gradual Tan lotion. This gradual tanner not only builds up a beautiful, natural-looking tan over time but also nourishes and hydrates your skin, keeping it silky smooth and moisturised.

Applying the Second Coat: Now, it's time for the magic of the second coat! For those who desire a deeper colour, applying an additional layer of Bronzie Oil or Mousse is key. Start by ensuring your first coat has developed fully and has been rinsed off. Once your skin is dry, take a fresh tanning mitt and apply the second coat evenly using long, sweeping motions. Remember to blend carefully around tricky areas like elbows, knees, and ankles to avoid any uneven patches. Remember, these areas tend to absorb more colour, so you may find that the first coat alone is sufficient to avoid over-tanning.

Maintenance and Aftercare: After you've achieved your desired depth of colour with the second coat, it's essential to maintain your tan for long-lasting results. Moisturise daily to keep your skin hydrated and help extend the life of your tan. Avoid exfoliating vigorously, as this can speed up the tan's fading process. Instead, gently exfoliate every few days to ensure an even fade.


With Bronzie by your side, achieving a stunning and natural-looking tan has never been easier. So, go ahead and embrace that sun-kissed radiance all year round!
