Naked Tan Formal Tips!

Spring has arrived and festive season is all around us! Naked Tan have the perfect tan for your formals, weddings and upcoming events! We are true believers that no outfit is complete without a tan.

Here are a few of our formal hot tips when spray tanning:

If it is your first time getting a spray tan, we recommend a light shade such as tanned. It is always a bit nerve wracking getting a spray tan so it is always best to gradually build up to the perfect colour for you!

 

Get your spray tan 2 days before. Having your spray tan two days before your formal, wedding or event will allow for any left over spray tan to be washed off. We would hate for you to get any tan on your beautiful gown!

 

Wearing white? Go a shade down! If you are wearing white we suggested going a lighter shade than what you usually would. As the contrast between white and tan is significant.

 

Get a bunch of girlfriends and book your spray tans together, make it a fun occasion for everyone!

The Star, Sydney, was the place to be on Sunday 9th September 2018, where around 600 glamorous and excited guests arrived for the annual Australian Beauty Industry Awards (ABIA’s) gala dinner. The evening kicked off with arrival champagne followed by resident host and MC for the evening, Mr Will Fennell, introducing the fabulous LED Dancers to kick of an incredible night of nights!

 

Winners were announced in 23 categories including 2018 ABIA Refectocil Hall of Fame recipient – Riana Janse Van Rensburg.

 

The Education Category was once again split into 2 awards for Individual and Organisation and was taken out by Elle Wilson of Brow Secrets and The Box Hill Institute respectively.

 

Recognised through an online voting system and following the announcement of the state Wholesaler of the Year winners in May, the overall Australian Winner was announced on the night as The Global Beauty Group

 

Following on from last year and with an unprecedented spike in the number of entries, the Beauty Salon/Spa of the year categories were split into State categories for both 4 Treatment rooms or less and 5 Treatment rooms or more. In a grand finale, the two Australian Salon/Spas of the year were awarded, determined by the highest ranking amongst the State winners. Australian Beauty Salon/Spa of the Year – 4 Treatment Rooms or less was won for the 2nd year running by The Temple Skincare and Australian Beauty Salon/Spa of the Year – 5 Treatment Rooms or more by HUD Skin and Body

 

“Once again we outgrew our venue from last year and hopefully have found a home for the ABIA’s for many years to come at The Star which will be able to cater for even more growth year on year.” said owner, Linda Woodhead. “The introduction of State Categories last year proved to be a successful decision with the number of entrants, this year, once again doubling in size. Having a large number of finalists, allows many salons to reap the rewards of recognition and with lots of new names this year we can only imagine the growth that the ABIA’s is still yet to enjoy. To have over 600 people attend the gala, when the awards are only 7 years old, is truly a testament to the industry and we are so honoured to facilitate such an inspiring event.”

Spray Tanning for First-timers: What You Should Know About It

Many look a lot better when they have a little color. This is the reason why spray tan is the hottest trend these days. Numerous people are turning to spray tanning to get that stunning bronze glow. In the past, people prefer to get tanned naturally, but since prolonged exposure under the sun is harmful to the skin, it gained a bad reputation. Even tanning beds are not a good thing these days.

Before considering instant tan, you should learn the basics of spray tanning. Here are things that you should know about it:

 

What is spray tanning?

Spray tanning is considered sunless tanning. It is the application of fine mist spray on your body. Best spray tan is designed having DHA (Dihydroxyacetone). DHA reacts to the skin by turning it tan or bronze. The effect lasts from three to seven days. Generally, it is safe for the skin. However, it does not provide any protection against UV rays.

 

What are the methods of spray tanning?

Many celebrities and models prefer spray tanning because it is easy to use and it is not time-consuming. There are three methods you can consider here. The first method is going to a tanning salon with booths; the booths are equipped with nozzles that are capable of spraying the entire body with the tanning solution. If you are not up for it, spray tanning can be administered using airbrush; this is similar to what the painters use. Airbrush is smaller and portable compared to booths. Finally, you can get a spray tan from a bottle. Many companies produce spray tanning products having the same ingredients provided in salons or airbrushes.

 

What are the pros and cons of spray tanning?

Before learning about the pros and cons of fake tan, you should know that regardless of the forms (lotions, cream, and mousse) of self-tanning, they use the same active ingredient – DHA. The good thing about spray tanning is it is easy to use – after blending, and you can instantly spray it on your entire body. Another benefit is it dries rapidly compared to other tanning products. As for the color, it varies from one person to another.

 

For those that do not like spray tanning, the biggest downside is the cost. You should be aware that one session can cost anywhere from $25 to $50 depending on the place. This is more expensive compared to using tanning lotions and creams. Another downside is you have to continuously experiment to get the blend that you like. Remember that everyone has different skin chemistry. What worked for the others might not work for you. With this, you need to constantly experiment and see what works best for you.

 

How to prepare for your first tanning session?

As soon as you give tanning spray a chance, you should schedule for an appointment. Before going, make sure that you shaved or wax. Do not forget to exfoliate your skin before you come to your appointment for better results. When you are in the salon, remove the makeup, moisturiser or deodorant before allowing them to spray. More importantly, before application, apply a meager amount of Vaseline on your knees, ankles, palms, and elbows. Do not forget to wear a shower cap and put lip balm on your lips.
