Perfect Pins with Xen-Tan

We all know legs can be one of the trickiest areas to tan, but a hint of colour can make all the difference when it comes to braving many items in your colourful summer wardrobe.

Not quite perfected tanning your legs? Follow our simple steps to getting perfect pins the whole summer long with Xen-Tan. 


  • Whether you’re a self tan addict or first time tanner, you must know by now that when it comes to tanning preparation is super important! Shave, exfoliate and moisturise legs (using oil-free products) 24 hours before you tan, in order to get a smooth, flawless finish. Our Body Scrub is perfect to gently remove dead skin cells and won’t leave a film or residue on the skin.  
  • To avoid product gathering at the knees and ankles and giving away your tanning secret, apply an oil-free moisturiser to these stubborn areas immediately before you start tanning, we recommend Scent Secure.



  • Choose your tan! We have a range of application types, so whether you prefer a lotion, mousse or spray we’ve got it covered. For beautifully bronzed pins we recommend a deep, long-lasting tan like our tan of the week Moroccan Tan.
  • Using little more than a 10p sized amount of product start at your ankles sweeping upwards in circular motions towards and gently over your knee.
  • Next, work the remaining product over your feet apply lightly between toes and around nails, blending carefully over the heels and towards the bottoms of your feet.
  • Finally, apply a small amount of product to the upper leg and again in circular motions blend upwards.



  • Always avoid applying tan directing to your knees, feet and ankles. Use excess product on your mitt to blend over these areas to ensure a more natural finish.
  • Try to apply the same amount of pressure all over the body when applying self tan. Take care not to buff the product into the skin too hard as this can cause some areas to be lighter than others.
  • We’ve a great range of finishing products such as as Flawless Logic.This tinted bronzer gel to powder stick contains a gentle sparkle and is a great product to create the illusion of longer limbs by applying to the front of your legs.

We love the natural results Moroccan Tan gives. Formulated with Argan Oil this liquid lotion glides effortlessly onto the skin. Its deep guide colour makes it perfect for tanning legs and easy to spot anywhere you’ve missed!
