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.

All Done Babe!

 

How long does fake tan last?

If you look after your fake tan properly and implement a thorough tanning routine where you prepare, tan and maintain you will maximise the result of your self tan. A fake tan will generally last 5-7 days, depending on your daily activities. After a Naked Tan Spray or applying the self-tan you should wait 2-4 hours before showering or rinsing. You will not reach your maximum result until 8-12 hours later. Your tan will look its best for 3 days following application before starting to fade.

Make sure you are applying the Crème de la crème moisturiser after every shower, or to add a subtle bit of ongoing colour try the Naked Tan Gradual Tan.

Always remember to pat yourself down after a shower rather than drag the towel along your skin and to keep out of swimming pools/spas!

Happy Tanning!! XX

Naked Tan recommend applying this product to your legs, arms and chest region for the ultimate GLOW! Be sure to let the Instant Tan dry before getting dressed as the shimmer is wet and may rub off on your clothes if not completely rubbed in.

 

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…
