    If you’ve ever wondered why you feel so fabulous during the summer but not so much in the winter, it’s all in the tan. Having sunkissed skin has various mood boosting elements so when winter rolls around and your suntan begins to fade, your mood follows en suite. So, what’s a lady to do? Slipping away on a tropical vacation isn’t always in the budget and even if it is, the tan usually fades as soon as you’re back in the brisk cold. Fortunately, there is a better alternative that'll give you the hint of color you desire all year round with many added benefits. That's right, ladies.  It’s all about the Winter Glow gradual tanner.


    A kiss of color keeps you happy

    While we’re not psychiatrists and can’t really explain why you feel so amazing with a tan, there’s no denying that it’s true. When you look in the mirror and see pale skin, it’s like the world’s biggest reminder that the winter season - and blues -  are still here.   

    With our gradual tanner, you can maintain sunkissed skin all year round. The best part? The results are exceptionally natural looking, so you look – and feel – like you’ve just returned from a quick winter getaway where you've been gently kissed by the sun. It's amazing what a sunless tan does for your mood. 


    Even out skin tone for a flawless complexion

    If you’ve ever wondered why your skin looks so fabulous during the summer months, it’s the tan. Sunkissed skin evens out your complexion, giving you flawless, smooth skin which instantly resonates with your mood.

    So, when winter comes around and you find yourself over-analyzing your skin in the mirror, try some gradual sunless self tanner instead. You’ll even out your skin tone with a stunning splash of color while also giving you all the confidence you need to survive the winter. Oh, and did we forget to mention that it’s skin firming?


    Tone, tighten and firm your skin just in time for spring

    You better believe it, ladies. The Winter Glow gradual tanner has all the anti-aging properties you need to keep your skin radiant all year long. It’s all thanks to the therapeutic, anti aging active ingredients we use across our entire sunless collection, with peptides being one of the best. It naturally rejuvenates and firms your skin, as well as gives you important antioxidants and vitamins you need to combat the winter blues.

    Battle the scaly legs with moisturizing bronzer

    We don’t know about you but the seriously intense dry skin that comes with the winter season is a serious downer on our mood. There’s nothing worse than spring finally arriving and not being able to wear your new cute sun dress because your skin looks like it belongs in the lake. Scaly, rough & unhealthy looking.

    Fortunately, Winter Glow gradual tanner is also a powerful body moisturizer. It’s infused with skin plumping hyaluronic acid and coconut oil for optimal moisture. Your skin will remain lightly tinted with a sunkissed glow and it'll feel just as amazing as it looks. Come spring time, you’ll be ready to shed the layers and slip into your best spring fashions.


    So, forget the idea that a tan is only for summer and enjoy a healthy, beautiful year round sunkissed glow with the Winter Glow gradual tanner. Not only is it a luxury self tanning cream but it’s also a powerful beauty product that’s infused with all the ingredients you need to keep your skin beautiful even during the harshest of months. A sunless tan is only one of the many benefits!

    So, protect, treat and sunkiss your skin the healthy way!

  • The Real Reasons Your Sunless Tan is a Streaky Mess

    Self tanner has gotten somewhat of a bad rap during the past couple of years. Donald Trump’s orange glow and the streaky skin seen on MTV's Teen Moms certainly hasn’t helped. But like most things in life, it’s all about the quality. You’ll never get the flawless self tanning glow if you’re slathering on some random bronzing cream that's packed with parabens. That’s a given but what might surprise you is that your skin care regime places a vital role in your finished sunkissed look. Find out why you've been getting bad self tanning results and how sunless tanners infused with beauty care will make a huge difference for your year-round tan.

    Your sunless tanner isn't infused with anti-aging ingredients

    Poor quality skin is at higher risk of a streaky tan because of its texture. Fine lines, wrinkles, and large pores make your skin’s surface irregular which makes it difficult to cover the areas evenly with self tanner. You know how your knees and elbows always require a little extra TLC when applying self tanning spray? Well, it’s similar to that – only for your face. So, if you aren't using sunless tanner that improves your complexion, that could very well be why you're seeing streaks.
    We decided to make a sunless tanner that gives you that glow along with the great skin care that'll make it look flawless.

    In fact, all of our self tanning sprays and self tanning creams contain multiple antiaging active ingredients because we know how vital it is to your final look. We understand the importance of quality skin for a sunless tan, so it simply wouldn’t make sense to make basic self tanner that isn't up to our standards. 

    Your sunless tanner doesn't moisturize your skin

    Similar to the complexion of your skin, your skin's hydration is vital to the final glow you receive from self tanners. Think of it like this – your skin can either be a prune or a plum. Apply lotion to both of these fruits and one of them is bound to have some serious streaks. You betcha! It’s the prune.

    When your skin is dry, it shrivels up and dead cells begin to make your pores their new home; a streak free self tan is almost impossible under these circumstances.
    So, we have infused our self tanners with the active ingredients that make a difference. Hyaluronic acid is key to optimal skin hydration, which is why our Winter Glow Body Moisturizer Bronzer is one of the most popular gradual tanners. But don’t worry. All of our self tanners have added ingredients for optimal skin hydration. So, you're free to shop and sunless tan with any of our products.

    Your sunless tanner doesn't tighten or tone

    When it comes to cellulite, your skin is like an orange peel under a microscope. There’s plenty of indentations that can be difficult to cover evenly with sunless https://www.hamptonsglow.com/collections/sunless   tanning tips, sunless, sunkissed, self tanning spray, self tanning cream, self tanner, hamptons glow, bronzertanner. As such, you’ve likely become obsessed with spray tans since they're great for optimal coverage. Unfortunately, this can get pretty expensive.

    Our sunless tanner tightens, tones and firms the skin. It’s infused with multiple peptides for collagen rejuvenation and skin firming, along with antioxidants & many other ingredients that plump up your skin, and protect it from further harm. So, as you get that glow you desire, you’re also treating the area instead of simply covering it up.

    To say Hampton’s Glow self tanners are just sunless tanners would be a huge understatement. They’re tanners that prevent, treat and tan your skin to give you the sunkissed bronze look and confidence you desire. It’s not about covering your skin but rather, it’s about taking care of your skin – and that’s how you get a flawless, streak free sunless tan.

  • 7 Secrets to Applying a Streak-Free Tan

    0 comments / Posted by Chantal McCulligh

    Streaks and blotches are two words that should never be in your self tanning vocabulary. More importantly, they don’t have to be. With premium self tanning products from Hamptons Glow, you can get sunkissed skin that looks like you’ve recently returned from a place of palm trees, UV rays, and crystal clear water. So, put these tips into practice and people will never know your tan came from a self tanning bottle.


    Always start with a good exfoliating scrub

    Exfoliating is the number one rule to a streak free tan. Without it, you’ll be tanning dead skin cells that will eventually fall off, making your sunless tan appear speckled or patchy. So, take a nice hot shower, grab your best loofah and slowly exfoliate your skin with small, circular motions. If you can do this regularly, all the better. Just be sure to avoid an oil-based scrub, as it can leave a film on your skin.

    Keep your skin moisturized

    An excellent way to avoid streaks and blotches from your sunless tanner is to keep your skin rich and moisturized. The more hydrated your skin is, the less dry skin cells you’ll have to exfoliate. As a result, your chances of a less-than-flawless self tan is instantly lowered.

    Just be sure to avoid moisturizing on the day you plan on self tanning, as it can disrupt the formula of your tanner. So, use a moisturizing self tanning lotion instead and infuse your skin with peptides while you get that desirable glow.

    Let out the stream prior to applying self tanner

    If you followed the number one rule to applying self tanner, your bathroom will be nice and steamy after your pre-tan shower. It’s crucial to let the heat and steam empty out prior to applying your sunless tan, as the moisture can cause you to sweat and your tan to streak.

    With that said, you also want to make sure your body temperature has also had a chance to cool prior to applying your bronzed glow.

    Practice makes perfect

    While it may sound cliché, practice does make perfect. The better you get at applying your self tanning lotion, the better the self tan will appear. However, that doesn’t mean you’re subject to streaks and blotches if you’re a sunless beginner. Just take your time with application, pay attention to each area before moving onto the next and don’t rush. Before you know it, you’ll be a self-proclaimed self tanning expert.

    Avoid getting dressed for at least 15 minutes

    Every self tanner needs a sufficient amount of time to set into your skin which is why it’s recommended to apply self tanning lotions and sprays at night. However, even then, it’s important to take some time away from the fabrics. Whether it’s a shirt or your bed sheets, avoid them for 15 minutes to keep your sunkissed glow on you and not on your belongings.

    Stay in for the night

    If you can avoid leaving the house for six to eight hours, it’s definitely worth considering. The environment can jeopardize your tan as it interrupt the setting process. So, stay out of the hot weather and avoid activities that make you sweat for a couple of hours. Again, the best time to apply your new sunkissed look is at night; you’ll get plenty of time for the bronzing to set in.

    Avoid cheap self tanners 

    The most important self tanning secret of all is to use high quality, premium self tanning lotions, creams or sprays. The lower the quality, the higher risk you have of looking like a zebra – or worse – an Oompa Loompa.

    So, stick with Hamptons Glow for a flawless, sunless tan.

    Summer is here and it’s time to get sunkissed. Bronzed skin is the best accessory and there’s no way you’re going to strut the sandy shores looking like you’ve just crawled out from hibernation. But tanning beds are dangerous and UV rays are detrimental. What’s a girl to do? This season, achieve a healthy summer glow that doesn’t put your health, beauty or fashion at risk with these top sunless secrets.    


    Protect your sun from harmful UV rays

    The most important step to achieving a healthy summer glow is to protect and prevent your skin from harmful UV rays. The sun is directly linked to causing severe diseases and illnesses such as cancer, and it’s also been linked to encourage premature aging. So, if nothing else, never step out into the sun without some high quality sun protection.

    Use sun protection infused with essential anti aging ingredients

    If you’re going to follow the first step, you might as well upgrade your experience with sun protection infused with beautifying capabilities. There’s no sense in slathering your skin with sun lotion if it’s full of toxins and chemicals. More importantly, you don’t have to.

    Our premium sun screen has a 30+ SPF, has superior water resistance and is full of the antioxidants needed to fight off cancer-causing free radicals. So, don’t just wear sun block; infuse sun protection into your skincare regime and lifestyle.

    Moisturize with a sunless tanner

    Anyone can get a tan but not everyone has a healthy summer glow. The key to achieving rich, luscious sunkissed look is to keep your skin hydrated. Add in the Hamptons Glow body moisturizer with bronzer for a subtle yet radiant glow. The formula is infused with peptide technology which is essential for healthy, youthful skin; the bronzer is an added bonus!

    Drink plenty of H20

    While maximum hydration can be found in a bottle of our body bronzing moisturizer, it’s still imperative to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated from within. So, pack in some water bottles along with our body bronzing moisture before you head out to frolic on the sandy shores. H20 is nature’s best kept beauty secret.  sunless, self tanner, tanning, hamptons, glow, sun, bronze, body bronzer, face bronzer, tanning tips, sunkissed, skin firming

    Enjoy the benefits and beauty of a sunless tan

    Being smart about your skin and health doesn’t mean you have to stay pale. You just have to be a little more creative with the way you get your sunkissed glow and Hamptons Glow is your answer.

    With our line of sunless tanning lotions, you get sunkissed skin and beauty benefits in a bottle. So, whether you’re looking for a gradual tanning lotion, a self tanning mist or an anti-aging glow, you’ve officially found it.                                              

    Add in a self tanning cream that tans, tones and tightens

    Complete your new summer beauty regime with a self tanning lotion that tans, tones and tightens. A tan is a tan but a tan on healthy skin is a beauty statement. So, add in some skin firming peptides and vitamins A and E for revitalized, rejuvenated, sunkissed skin this summer season.  


    You’ll have all the summer glow you need, sans the potential health risks you thought were inevitable. The best tan is always a safe tan. Shop premium self tanning lotions and creams infused with essential nutrients and ingredients needed to keep your skin radiant well throughout the season.
