Inside Tan Accelerating Lotion
Gatineau’s Tan Accelerating Lotion is one of our best-loved & top-rated products
for good reason. It is generally advised that you should use this lotion 2 weeks before going on holiday, during your holiday, and as an after-sun when you return home to prolong your tan. However, I have seen such amazing benefits using it as my summer body moisturiser throughout. Usually, I start applying it after my shower every day from the beginning of March right through until the end of September. However, since Summer 2016 I have been using it as my body lotion each & every day! I can honestly say that last summer I had the most even, long-lasting, stress-free tan without even a glimpse of prickly heat (which I normally see around day 4-5 of my holiday in the sun). As well as helping to stimulate the melanin production it leaves your skin beautifully soft & smooth and very well moisturised.
The way that Tan Accelerating Lotion works is that it is formulated with something called MAPs – these are Melanin Activating Peptides
, which means they stimulate melanin production in the skin, causing the skin to look visibly tanned. However, by stimulating melanin in the skin not only do you tan more easily and evenly, but your skin is also protected from damage and discoloration. That’s why so many people say this product stops them suffering from heat rash as well. It’s hard to believe that it doesn’t contain any fake tan at all!
Since we all know how harmful the sun can be for the skin, and how it accelerates the ageing process, this lotion is formulated with the famous Gatineau youth-activating molecule- Melatogenine™
. It helps bring supple keratin to the skin's surface, reducing fine lines and wrinkles (a must if you are a sun-worshipper!). Then Vanilla Pod Extract introduces anti-oxidants to the mix and provides free radical protection, repairing your skin after sun exposure and helping it to smell so good! If, however you do not sit in the sun, it also helps your self-tan to last longer and gives the skin a natural healthy glow.
What I love best about this lotion apart from how effective it is, is that although it feels luxurious as you apply it, the lotion absorbs easily & doesn’t feel sticky at all. This is definitely a product I couldn’t be without – but don’t forget your SPF!
