Whether you're planning a Spring escape, night on the town, or just want a little extra everyday glow, we've asked the Queen of Tanning, Sonya Driver, owner and founder of Eco Tan to dish on her 5 tips for making the most of a faux glow.
2- For best faux-tanning results, it's recommended to exfoliate 48 hours prior to getting tanned - Sonya's tip "Never exfoliate the day you're planning to tan, as the product won't stick to the skin as well"
3- How to prolong your tan a few days into your trip - Sonya says "Eco Tan tans naturally fade off without patchiness, however, to prolong your tan, especially when pool-hopping, Sonya can't recommend Winter Skin gradual tanner enough.

4 - Tips for faking a genuine-looking glow ahead of summer? Sonya recommends going for a softer honey glow for Winter/early spring, and a deeper earthy brown tone for summer or when heading to a tropical destination.
5- Keep Hydrated! Sonya recommends keeping skin well moisturised to maintain your tan, especially in drier climates. "This keeps the tan from flaking off the skin, and the skin from dehydrating"
