Summer is just around the corner, and it’s time to get your skin ready for the sunny days ahead. At Peau d'Or, we offer a range of products that help you achieve a beautiful, even tan while protecting your skin. In this article, you will learn how to effectively use our tanning accelerators and sunscreens together to tan faster, maintain your tan longer, and keep your skin protected from the sun's harmful effects.

What are Tanning Accelerators and How Do They Work?

Tanning accelerators are special skincare products designed to boost the production of melanin in your skin. Melanin is the pigment that gives your skin its tan. By increasing melanin production, your skin tans faster and more intensely. Our Peau d'Or tanning accelerators contain natural ingredients such as tyrosine and other amino acids that support this process.

How to Apply Tanning Accelerators:

  1. Prepare Your Skin:

    • Thoroughly cleanse your skin to remove dirt, oil, and dead skin cells. An exfoliation can help prepare your skin for tanning and achieve a more even tan.
  2. Apply the Tanning Accelerator:

    • Apply the tanning accelerator evenly on your skin. Make sure to cover all areas to achieve a uniform tan.
    • Gently massage the product into your skin until fully absorbed. Pay extra attention to dry areas like elbows and knees.
  3. Timing:

    • Apply the tanning accelerator about 20-30 minutes before sun exposure or tanning bed use to allow the ingredients to penetrate your skin and start working.

Combining with Sunscreen:

To protect your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun, it is essential to use sunscreen. Here’s how to use our Peau d'Or sunscreens in conjunction with the tanning accelerators:

  1. Sunscreen After Tanning Accelerator:

    • Once the tanning accelerator is fully absorbed (about 20-30 minutes), apply a generous amount of Peau d'Or sunscreen.
    • Ensure you cover all exposed skin areas. Use our regular sunscreen for daily protection or the Glow variant for added shine and radiance.
  2. Reapply Regularly:

    • Reapply the sunscreen regularly, especially after swimming, sweating, or towel drying, to maintain continuous protection.

Tips for the Perfect Tan:

  1. Start Slowly:

    • Begin with short sunbathing sessions to avoid sunburn. Gradually increase the duration over time.
  2. Hydration:

    • Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside and promote a healthy tan.
  3. After-Sun Care:

    • Use our after-sun lotions after sun exposure to soothe and moisturize your skin. This helps to maintain your tan longer and regenerate your skin.
