New Years Resolutions

We are proclaiming that 2019 will be the year of achievable resolutions and big dreams! What do we mean? Well we resolve to start making our bed in the morning, but we dream of holidaying in Hawaii!

We have compiled a cheeky list of tanning resolutions (and how to keep them) that you can incorporate into your new year. We promise these resolutions are easier than quitting chocolate…

  1. I resolve to start washing my tanning glove:

Run our Tanning Applicator Mitt under hot water until the water goes clear, then leave it out to dry.

  1. I resolve to moisturise everyday to prolong the life of my tan:

If you want hydrated skin (You should!) try using our Crème De La Crème, before and after your tan. Beauticians you can also apply it to the knees, elbows, feet and hands of clients. This acts as a moisture barrier, so that those dry areas don’t go too dark after a spray.

  1. I will stop wearing moisturiser, makeup or deodorant to my spray tan appointments:

Skip the products and go bare, it will save your beautician time and give you an easy-breezy-even tan. Wearing deodorant or moisturiser can cause product to not stick well to the skin, so we want to avoid them, if possible. Just like our products, we want you to be Au naturale!

  1. I will exfoliate and shave before tanning:

We all know that fake tan looks a million times better on fresh skin! Buffing away the dead skin cells will give you a gorgeous streak-free tan. Try using a combo of our Body Exfoliator and Tan Removing Mitt, for baby soft skin.

  1. I will Fake it:

At Naked Tan we believe strongly that we should all protect ourselves from the sun’s harmful UV rays. That means no crisping yourself at the beach! Far too many people are hurt from a life sun-baking, so this year slip slop slap (and pop on some Mousse when you get home).

  1. I will apply with an applicator mitt:

You’ve seen those tans before, the ones that have streaky marks and white patches. There are a few reasons for this; they were rushing, they applied in lines not circular motions or they weren’t using a Mitt. This year we are resolving to have no more zebra legs!

  1. I will not to use soap that strips my tan:People always ask us how to make their tans last longer and this is what we tell them: moisturise, stay hydrated and use the correct soap! People are often using harsh shower washes that contain alcohol or other ingredients that will strip your tan. Our Body Cleanser is made from all natural ingredients that will keep your tan looking fresh, and your skin clean. Thank us later…
  2. I will love myself:

Tan or no tan, this is the year to show yourself love, goddess. Life is too short, so grab it with both hands (also grab a mimosa, because girl, you deserve it!)

Happy 2019 goddesses! We are wishing for nothing but happiness for all of you. May this year be the year you achieve your dreams, and finally learn how to fake tan your ankles properly.

Our Melbourne Guide

It’s no secret that Naked Tan is stocked in some amazing salons worldwide, but for today we thought we would narrow in on Australia’s city of culture- Melbourne! Coming into the festive season we thought we would highlight some great things to do (and salons to go to!).

Reminder: Below are just some of our amazing salons that happen to be close to popular events, but we have so many more. So, always call or check our salon locator if you are looking to find a salon that stocks Naked Tan. Click Here to Check It Out.

 –

1.Off the races? Head down to Flemington and meet the team at Vanity Hair and Beauty Salon. The best accessories a girl can have for an event are a smile and tan (We may be biased).

 2.Speaking from experience, you must attend the inflatable regatta! This event is run several times a year, the next one being February 24th. Basically, you float down the Yarra river in an inflatable donut, you can bring drinks and snacks, and it’s just a lovely way to spend the day. If you are wanting to be nice and bronzed while you are out in the sun, we have several salons close to the river, like Glam Beauty & Nails or Utopia Skin Solutions.

 3.The Australian Open! An iconic Aussie event that brings in hundreds of thousands of visitors. Watching the greats battle it out is an experience not to be missed. If you haven’t been before, be warned, people get dolled up for this event (in hopes of stealing Federer’s heart?). This is a great excuse to pop on a tan, wear your best white dress and enjoy an unbelievable event.

 4. If you fancy a relaxing weekend indoors, we would suggest staying at a resort. They are one stop-shops for pampering, whether it be a tan, a massage or a sauna. If a little bit of you time in the big smoke sounds good, we have a few great resorts in the city, one that is in the CBD is One Spa RACV City Club Melbourne.

 5. If you are anything like us, you are always looking for an excuse to get dolled up. Well there is no better excuse in Melbourne than the Opera. This November you could be haunted by the phantom of the opera at Her Majesty’s theatre. Located close by is Waxology South Melbourne for all of your glam needs.


There is always millions of things to do in a city buzzing with art, culture, music and events. Take the time these holidays to visit our friends in Victoria, we assure you, you will not be disappointed.

Happy Tanning Melbournites!

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!
