As your tanning experts, we’ve tried every trick in the book when it comes to achieving a flawless, glowing tan. From application techniques to how to contour and define with your Bella Bronze Tan, we’ve done it all, so you don’t have to! We believe knowledge is power so we’ve put together 5 of our top tanning hacks so that you too can achieve the perfect glow. Let’s go!
The pore-closing method
When tanning your face, apply ice or a cold compress to your face before getting your glow on. These ultra-cold temperatures are going to help close your pores and stop your self-tanner from working its way into them.
Why is this an amazing tanning hack? Well, for starters, by supporting your pores pre-tanning, you’re going to help prevent the appearance of breakouts peeking through your gorgeous, glowing complexion. This process is also going to assist in an even, blended finish as in conjunction with proper exfoliation, you’re creating a smooth canvas to work with.
Ever gone to bed post-tan only to wake up with your sheets resembling a bronzed crime scene? Consider the materials your sheets and pillowcases are made from when heading to bed after your tan. Switching to silk pillowcases can help your face, neck and décolleté tan last longer as this fabric has much less friction than traditional cotton. Plus, it’s amazing for acne-prone skin types too!
Remove your tan without the harsh scrubbing
If you’re devoted to the glow like we are, you know all too well that all good things must come to an end. Until next week’s tan of course!

When it is time to tan your back and those hard-to-reach areas, place the body brush inside your tanning mitt and secure with a hair tie. Voila! You’ve created a seamless extender for your at-home tan! If you don’t have a body brush, raid your kitchen for a wooden spoon. This will also do the trick to reach those stubborn areas.
