“When the girls arrived the night before, I would make sure that they washed off the lotion or oils on their body. I applied the VITA LIBERATA Rapid Tan Mousse or pHenomenal Mousse onto the Tanning Mitt and began to apply it onto dry unmoisturized skin. I would pay special attention to areas that crease (i.e. knees, backs of knees, elbows, fingers etc.) by using a wet tissue to blot off a little bit off the product and diluting the product that is on the skin. They would sleep in the product overnight and the next morning they would do a quick rinse but no soap because it allows the product to continue to develop.
Because the conditions were very sunny and hot, I made sure to apply the VITA LIBERATA Passionflower and Argan Oil SPF 50 to protect their skin from the harmful UV rays without risking the tans coming off. However, I mixed the SPF with the VITA LIBERATA Body Blur so that it added a highlight and made the Body Blur easy to spread all over the body.”

As far as getting the look at home, Allan says you can apply the above products, “The same way. Just make sure you have clean dry and unmoisturized skin before applying the product so that it will adhere to your skin. Using the Tanning Mitt is the key to a perfectly streak free and even tan.”
His trick for at-home application is to “finish one area of the body before starting on any other part to make sure you didn’t miss any. And just double check each area so that you can use the mitt to buff out any streaks or areas you missed.”
Allan adds: “Highlighting is a must. Body Blur is my favorite. In order to get it to be more emollient to spread all over the body, I mixed it with the Passion Flower Argan Oil SPF 50. With the sun in every direction, I didn’t just choose areas to highlight. I put it over their whole body so that it was a 360 degree glow!”
Since we all have an idea of streaky tanner in our heads, Allan offers his tips on helping the products last: “Ideally, I like the product to stay on the body for a full 24 hours to get the maximum developing time. With the Sports Illustrated conditions and schedule, we don’t have that luxury. When at home, avoid rinsing and putting anything on the body for 24 hours. Because VITA LIBERATA doesn’t smell like other self tanners, you will be okay.”
If you’ve never used self-tanner, now is the time! Allan says: “Don’t be afraid because VITA LIBERATA’s color is the best. You won’t look orange and the VITA LIBERATA products adjust to your skin tone giving you the most natural looking tan. Also the no-smell factor is a big deal.”
