How to Tan Your Skin Type

We know we all wish that our skin was pore free, plump and dewy but unfortunately that’s just not the case! Sometimes your tanning process needs to be tweaked so that you are taking care of your bodies biggest organ. Read below to find out some helpful tips, and if you have a skin type or issue that hasn’t been touched on, contact us and we can tailor make a tanning routine for you!

 

Dry skin:

Our best tip for dry skin may seem obvious, but we assure you it’s a step people often miss- Moisturise! You should apply a healthy dose of moisturiser all over your body in the days leading up to your tan and drink plenty of water, we recommend using our Crème De la creme. Continue to moisturise every day after you tan too, this will mean your tan won’t appear cracked and will last longer.

 

Sensitive skin:

If you have ultra-sensitive skin our heart goes out to you! It can be tricky to try new products, but we have some tips to make life a little easier for you. If you are aware of what ingredients trigger a reaction for you, you can always contact us and we will be able to send you a MDS (material data sheet). This sheet will tell you every ingredient we have in our products, all of which are natural and organic based.

If you are getting a spray tan we always recommend coming in at least a day before for a patch test. You should be able to tell if you are going to have a reaction and determine whether you would still like to go ahead with the tan.

If you ever have any questions regarding our ingredients or require a patch test, don’t hesitate to ask!

 

Sweaty:

It’s your lucky day! We have developed a spray tan just for you. Our Water-Resistant spray tan is a godsend for any ladies who grapple with the heat or have more oily skin. Once sprayed you can sweat without worry and when you wash it off there won’t be any marks or streaks. It’s a miracle! We have also found this is great for women going through menopause, who might experience those pesky hot flushes.

 

Acne-prone:

Our one big tip for those of you who experience acne is to close your pores! Many of us will have a shower before we apply tanner, but you should always make sure that your shower ends with at least 30 seconds in cold water. Hot water will open your pores up and cold water closes them- it’s as simple as that! By doing this you will be helping keep those blemishes at bay.

 

Happy Tanning Goddesses!

Our Ultimate Tanning Routine

Holiday season is upon on us, and that means lots of fake tanning! So we’ve created the perfect tanning routine that will turn you into a pro in no time. We want you feeling like the natural beauty you are!

 

 

 

 

 

Preparation: 12-24 hours before you plan to tan

Like a house needs a good foundation, so does a fake tan! it’s a personal choice whether you want to shave or not, but a tan does apply a little easier onto smooth skin. Next step, jump in a hot shower (this will open your pores) and use an Exfoliator Mitt and Body Exfoliator scrub to slough away that dead skin. Be careful if you have sensitive skin, you don’t want to be too rough and aggravate it.  A great product to use now is our Body Cleanser, it will make your skin super soft and the aloe vera will soothe any redness caused by exfoliating.

Now hop out of the shower and lather yourself in moisturiser- we recommend the crème de la crème! Your skin will drink it all up, leaving you feeling soft as silk.

We recommend doing all of this 12-24 hours before you plan on tanning, so that your pores are closed and your moisturiser has sunk in. If you don’t have 12 hours, give it at least 1-2 after showering to tan. As well as this, after you have exfoliated, turn on the cold water for a minute to close all your pores up again.

 

 

 

 

Application: At least a day before your event

Get out your Tanning mitt and get in front of a mirror! First things first, apply some creme de la creme to your dry areas; elbows, knees and hands. By doing this you will stop the tan caking into the skin and appearing dark on these spots. Next, apply an even layer of the Goddess Bronzing Mousse all over your body in circular motions, to ensure a streak free finish. Check in the mirror that you haven’t missed any spots! Then wait until your skin feels dry to touch and put your clothes back on.

Leave it on for 2-4 hours before washing it off, the longer you leave it the darker you will go. So, if you have fair skin naturally and want a more subtle look, stick to the 2 hour mark. Once you have washed it off, pat yourself dry with a towel and then your tan will begin to develop, it will reach its peak in about 6 hours.

 

 

 

 

 

Maintenance

Now that your tan is all washed off and your feeling fabulous, don’t race out the door! You should moisturise once you’ve hopped out of the shower, and then keep up this moisturising everyday to prolong the life of your tan. Drinking plenty of water and not swimming or exercising strenuously will also help keep your tan for longer!  Our gradual tanner can also be used everyday to deepen the colour.

BEST BEACHES TO TAKE A SELFIE IN SYDNEY

You’ve got a killer fake tan and a hot bikini to match. The sun is out and shining and you’re ready for a girl’s day out at the beach. Sydney is filled with Instagram-worthy beaches and pools that you need to be at! Don’t forget after a long day of summer adventures to apply your Naked Tan Crème de la crème as it is so important to keep your skin hydrated and glowing!

 

Bronte Rock Pool
Sydney’s Bronte Rock Pool is one of Sydney’s oldest bath pools. Situated at the top of Bronte beach it is the ideal location to spend the end of summer and take the last of your Instagram snaps. Only a short walk from Bondi beach, you can get a stint of fitness in for the day walking the scenic and famous Bondi to Bronte Coastal walk. This venue is free for you to swim at, if you want to keep your tan alive we recommend arriving early to guarantee you get a spot to sunbake.

 

Bondi Icebergs

Bondi is known for its packed beaches and picturesque Sydney coastline. Their concrete playground is popular amongst all the tanned Sydney Instafamous girls as this is the trendiest rock pool to hang out at during the Summer. Soak up the suns rays and get your tan on at a cost of $6.50 for entry.

 

Figure 8 pools

If you have not seen Sydney’s figure 8 pools in your Instagram feed, you have been living under a rock all summer. You’ll need to get your sunless tan on with Naked Tan before heading to the Figure 8 pools, as there isn’t much space to sunbake. Situated in Sydney’s Royal National Park be prepared to get some exercise in as you’ll have a 6km walk to get through from Garrawaara Farm before being able to jump in the Figure 8 pools.

 

Milk Beach

Take in Sydney’s beautiful beaches and scenic views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge whilst tanning. Stock up on Instagram worthy shots as this beach takes in some of Sydney’s best views without the load of heavy tourists. This Sydney beach does get busy with locals however!  Just off Hermitage Foreshore walk, it would be best not to head here on steamy hot day!

 

North Sydney Pool

North Sydney Pool is one of the best places to take a photo in Sydney. The stunning lap pool sits directly under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and right next to Luna Park Sydney. This venue is stunning for a summer afternoon dip and a relaxing place for tanning!

 

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!

Unfortunately, we no longer sell the Naked Tan Organic solution, this however does not mean that our full tanning range isn’t suited to those who are ingredient conscious. All of our solutions are vegan-friendly!

Naked Tan has four salon shades including; Natural – 8% DHA, Tanned – 10% DHA, Exotic – 12% DHA and Chocolate – 15% DHA. Our tan solutions all contain COSMOS certified organic ingredients with the exception of our signature Naked Tan fragrance.
