Difference between a Self Tan and a Mousse!?

If you’re new to the fake tanning game and are confused about the difference in tanning products Naked Tan are here to help! Over the years different textures and colours have entered the tanning industry. Finding the right sunless tanning product for your skin and needs is really important in ensuring you get the flawless tan!

 

Self -Tan and a tanning mousse are two very different products. Both tanning products will leave your skin golden and bronzed! The difference in the fake tan products however is that the Self Tan is a cream texture similar to that of a moisturiser whilst a tanning Mousse is a foam texture. The Self Tan Cream entered the industry first and is the product leader of DIY tanning. Self Tanning cream is popular amongst those who don’t feel as confident converting over to the foam. The Naked Tan Goddess Self Tan comes in one colour with a gentle 10% DHA, this means it will develop as a medium tan.

 

Fake tan foam is an easy product to use as the bronzer shows up on the skin clearly allowing for you to see the areas you have not yet applied fake tan to, meaning no streaky tans! Naked Tan offer two colours in this product the Tanned Bronzing Mousse and the Chocolate Bronzing Mousse. The tanned is the same colour as the Goddess Self Tan cream creating a medium tan whilst the Chocolate Bronzing Mousse is an ultra dark tan.

 

Both the Goddess Self Tan and Goddess Bronzing Mousse should be applied to the entire body and left on to develop a bronzed tan for 2-4 hours, then rinsed off and pat dried. When applying your fake tan be sure to use the Naked Tan Applicator Mitt for flawless results.

How to clean your spray tan equipment

It is important to clean your spray tanning equipment regularly to help ensure longevity and efficiency. It also promotes a professional, clean look in your beauty salon, this is important for clients first impressions. To clean the machine and hose, simply wipe over with a damp cloth. This should ideally be done at the end of each day to avoid any build up of overspray on your machine.

 

To Clean Your Machine Filter

The filter is located at the base of the machine. It is vital that the filter and cover are cleaned at least once a week, depending on spray tan volume. The filter protects the machines internal motor from overspray, if not maintained correctly your equipment risks getting damaged and breaking.

 

Remove the filter cover and wipe over with a damp cloth to clean.

 

Remove the black filter and hold under running water until clean.

 

Leave the filter to air dry* over night, once dried you may insert the filter into your spray tan machine.

 

*never replace the filter or cover until fully dry, and NEVER use your Naked Tan spray tan machine unless the filter and cover are both securely in place.

 

To Clean Your Naked Tan Spray Gun

To ensure your Naked Tan Tanning Pro gun is maintained correctly, and you are getting the best results from your equipment, we recommend cleaning your spray tan guns at the end of every day. When cleaning your spray tan gun follow these simple instructions:

 

Pour water into the cup and screw into the gun.

 

Attach the gun to the hose and adjust to setting 8 to clean.

 

Turn the machine onto full power, holding the gun over the sink pull the trigger and allow the water to blow through the gun.

 

Continue spraying the water until the water appears clear. You can test this by holding a cloth, or paper towel in front of the nozzle.

 

Once the water is coming through and appears to be clear, unscrew the cup from the gun, rinse thoroughly and leave aside to air dry.

 

To dry the gun, begin by removing the hose from the guns handle. With air still blowing from the hose, hold the hose below the suction tube inside the gun while squeezing the trigger so the guns nozzle is open. Hold for approximately 20 seconds to ensure this section of your gun is dry. NEVER TRY TO REMOVE THE SUCTION TUBE, THIS IS A FIXED PART OF THE GUN.

 

When your gun is cleaned and dried correctly the guns pin will appear white and dry, with no traces of tanning solution.

 

To clean the outer part of the gun wipe over with a damp cloth. Then leave the gun and cup to dry on a towel over night. Always remember to readjust the gun to your preferred setting before your next spray tan! (recommended setting 3 or 4)

 

*NEVER SPRAY WITH A WET OR DAMP GUN, WATER MIXED WITH YOUR TANNING SOLUTION WILL CONTAMINATE THE PRODUCT AND MAY PREVENT THE TAN FROM DEVELOPING. ALWAYS ENSURE YOUR GUN IS FULLY DRY BEFORE USE

Tanning for Dummies!

When it comes to applying your fake tan at home this can be a stressful process as you want to make sure you are using the right products and applying the self tan appropriately.

When tanning at home make sure you are not applying your tan over a carpet surface as you may drop some product when applying the tan. The best space to fake tan is in your bathroom as this area is bright and you should use the mirror as guidance for areas you may have missed. Naked Tan recommend the Goddess Tanned Bronzing Mousse for those who have fairer skin and the Naked Tan Chocolate Bronzing Mousse for those who have an olive complexion.  The Naked Tan Goddess Self Tan is the texture of moisturiser rather than a mousse. This colour is similar to the Tanned Mousse. All 3 products should be left on for 2hrs before showering. It is important to remember that it is not necessary to leave your tan on for longer than 4 hours as this is when discolouration starts to occur.

The Naked Tan Applicator Mitt is the key to ensuring your fake tan is applied flawlessly and streak free. The applicator mitt is used to ensure you have full even coverage and won’t leave your hands tanned or blotchy. The applicator mitt can be used to apply the Naked Tan Goddess Bronzing Mousse, Naked Tan Goddess Self Tan or the Naked Tan Instant Tan. It is important to look after your mitt so it does not get a build up of product left in it, this will cause your mitt to harden. You can simply wash your fake tan mitt out with water after each use to keep it in tan ready condition!

Green Solution?!

Have you ever experienced your clients skin throwing shades of green or have poured your Naked Tan Spray Tan Solution into your tanning cup and have noticed it has turned green? If your spray tan solution pours or sprays green this means that your solution is out of date or has been exposed to sunlight. If you go ahead and spray your solution on a client their skin will not come out bronzed and beautiful however completely green!! It is essential that you keep your tanning solution in a cool place, under 25 degrees, as if it overheats this will also damage the tanning solution.

 

The Naked Tan Professional Range has a shelf life of 12 months and 9 months after opening. On your Naked Tan bottle there is an expiry date on the bottom, be sure to keep on top of this if you are not spray tanning regularly.

 

Occasionally you will get a client who has forgotten to take off their deodorant or perfume. You will notice this when spray tanning as those areas, under the armpits, neck or wrists will discolour to a green. When booking in your client always remind them to remove these beauty products. We recommend asking your client when she arrives for her spray tan if she has prepared for her tan correctly. To prevent this happening also have a towel or wipes on hand as many customers would have come directly from work.

Mixing the Naked Tan Signature Range

When selecting the Naked Tan Solution to spray tan your client in it is essential you colour consult them first. This is through assessing their skin tone and chatting to your client about the colour they wish to achieve. For those clients who have olive complexion Naked Tan recommend spray tanning in either the Chocolate or Exotic Solutions. For those with fair skin Naked Tan recommend the Naked Tan Natural Solution or Naked Tan Tanned Solution.

Naked Tan Spray Tan Tones

It is important to note that it is okay to mix Naked Tan Solutions together. This may occur when your solution is running out of date or when a client wants to go an in between colour. Naked Tan suggest mixing a cooler solution such as the Naked Tan Chocolate or Naked Tan Exotic with a warmer spray tan solution such as Naked Tan Natural or Naked Tan Tanned. Combinations you may wish to mix include…

What to do before and after a tan!

If you are someone who fake tans weekly you would know that there are plenty of tips and tricks to get the best result from your spray tan or tanning mousse. Implementing a tanning routine can be hard when you’re rushing about or have decided to apply your tan last minute. However, if you want a flawless long lasting golden bronze there are steps you NEED to take before and after you apply your tan.

 

PREPARING

If you do not exfoliate your skin regularly we recommend introducing exfoliation into your tanning routine 12-24 hours before you are going to tan. Exfoliation removes any dead skin cells and helps with blood circulation; this will assist in leaving your skin glowing and healthy. The Naked Tan Goddess Body Exfoliator is a unique formula that combines moisture rich coconut oil with smooth pumice grains and bamboo powder to gently exfoliate, leaving your skin soft smooth and tan ready! Leading up to your fake tan you also want to avoid any products that will leave a film or coating layer over your skin as this can create a barrier and prevent your tan from reaching its full result! The Naked Tan Goddess Body Cleanser is SLS free, which means you can use this product BEFORE or AFTER your tan without stripping or fading the fake tan. The Naked Tan Goddess Body Cleanser is suitable for every skin type even the most sensitive. This tanning product will moisturise your skin and leave it purified, invigorated and perfectly tanned.

 

MAINTAINING
After your tan it is so important to keep your skin hydrated to help extend the longevity of your tan, maintaining a healthy glow! The Naked Tan Creme de La Creme is the ideal daily moisturiser, filled with Coco and Shea butter not only will your skin be silky smooth and soft but also smell like coconuts! Another hot tip is to apply the Naked Tan Goddess Instant Tan when you feel your tan is starting to fade. This product is a shimmer cream which leaves your skin sparkling and bronzed. The Goddess Instant Tan contains no actual tan in the product and washes off once you shower.

 

Benefits of sunless tanning.

Sun baking has become a trend of the past as we have learnt about the harmful damage the sun is having on our skin. Naked Tan is the perfect product for men and women who wish to have a summer glow without being exposed to harmful UV rays from the sun.

 

Not only do the UV rays increase your chances of getting skin cancer, they also irreparably damage the collagen in your skin, which is responsible for keeping your skin firm and smooth. Once the collagen is broken down wrinkles will result. Sunspots are also another side effect of spending too much time sunbaking! Up to 80% of premature skin aging, is caused from the exposure to the sun. Naked Tan is the best spray tan option to prevent the risk of damage to your skin so be sun smart and get a healthy Naked Tan.

 

Not only is there health benefits involved with sunless tanning but also convenience and result factors. Naked Tan offers different shades for every skin type, this means you can pick how dark you want your tan. Having complete control over how light or dark your tan will come out is a great treat as you can have a tan that evens out your skin complexion or go for something a bit heavier when going out with the girls!

 

Fake Tanning also means that you don’t have to put up with contrasting tan lines from where you wore your swim wear. You no longer have to take the time out of your weekend to lay in the sun to get your glow on! Fake Tanning is also an extremely fast result; once your tan is showered you will notice an immediate difference in your skin tone.

What are your top 5 tan tips?

If you do not use the right tanning product or are unsure about the tips and tricks of tanning… your fake tan can end up a disaster. Lucky for you Naked Tan have developed a range of different products to assist in the process of applying your tan. With over 10 years of experience the tanning experts from Naked Tan have shared with you their Top 5 Fake Tan Tips!

 

Ensure your skin is hydrated and exfoliated using the Naked Tan Goddess Body Exfoliator. If your skin is dry you will not get a complete result when tanning.

 

Avoid wearing makeup, deodorant and perfume before your spray tan or Bronzing Mousse application. These products can create a barrier preventing the tan from fully developing. These areas of your body will turn green once in contact with fake tan solution. But not to worry the Goddess Body Cleanser will assist in the removal of this pigment when you shower off your tan.

 

Avoid heat. Sitting in saunas, spas or having hot showers will result in your pores opening up; this will cause your tan to crack, and fade. If you are someone who is frequently swimming we recommend that you apply the Naked Tan Gradual Tan daily to your skin to avoid the disappointment of your tan coming off earlier than anticipated.

 

Wear loose clothing. After your Naked Tan is applied you want to ensure you have loose clothing to wear whilst your tan develops. Enclosed shoes, jeans and long sleeve tops may result in a streaky tan as the pressure from these items can take off the bronzer. Naked Tan also recommends wearing black as bronzer may rub off onto your items. Not to worry though the Naked Tan range does not stain your clothes and will come out once washed!

 

When showering ensure you pat dry your skin as dragging your towel can result in your tan coming off. After every shower you should be applying the Naked Tan crème de la crème moisturiser to keep your skin healthy and bronzed!

 

What should I use to tan my face?!

If you’re wanting to tan your face the Naked Tan Tanning Range will become your must have products! All infused with a coconut and vanilla scent you’ll be able to leave the tan on to develop without feeling uncomfortable! Tanning your face is a great beauty hack as it helps to even out skin tones without having to wear make up. Naked Tan have developed several products to suit each skin tone.
