How to Prolong the Life of Your tan

One of the most common questions we get asked is “How can I make my tan last longer”. Sometimes you have events two weekends in a row, and want that tan looking fresh a week later- the life of a socialite can be hard!

If this is the case for you, we have a few hot tips!

– 

  1. Crème that body up: it’s no secret that hydrated skin looks best, but a lot of people don’t realise how vital it is for keeping your tan looking fresh. Apply our Crème De la Crème after every shower, and before you go to bed or after you wake up. Two applications daily should keep your skin looking lush.

  2. Face the facts: Our Face Tan Mist is any fake tanners’ best friend! Most people find that the tan on their face fades a lot quicker than body, and the reason for this is that most makeup has products or alcohol in it that will strip your tan. The face tan mist is a super refreshing spray with 5% DHA, so it works like gradual tan. Spray one or two times a day (or more) until you achieve your desired colour. It is so easy to use and an absolute staple in our lives. You will wonder how you ever lived without it!

  3. If you want to add some more colour: Our Gradual Tan is an amazing tan-extender. Apply once a day to add a new moisturising coat of tan to your skin. With 4% DHA this product will add some colour to that fading skin.

  4. No alcohol: Whoops did we scare you? You can still enjoy a glass of wine (or 5), we just don’t want you to wash your body with any product containing alcohol or SLS. Our amazing Cleanser is free of these two ingredients, and all other nasties. Wash in this bad boy and you will find your tan lasts so much longer. Plus, it contains our signature scent, so not only will you look like you just got back from a tropical holiday, but you will smell like it too!

  5. Get a little help from our fairy godmother: The Instant Tan will take you from rags to riches! Made up of beautiful natural products, this instant tan will give you an all over shimmer and bronze. This product will be your saving grace on the day of an event, because you can just pop it on and elevate the depth of your tan, then wash it off in the shower that night! You will be looking like Cinderella (post-makeover) in no time!

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!

How To: Remove Fake Tan From Clothing

If you’re anything like us, you’ve grappled with more than a couple of tan stains. We are thankful you don’t have to sleep in Naked Tan to look beautiful and Chocolate – otherwise w­­­e would be bleaching our sheets every week!
We don’t want you to stop wearing white on a night out for fear of ruining your tops (those underarm tan runs can be the worst)- so we have devised a list of our go-to tan removal tips!

An important disclaimer: If you have any delicate fabrics like silk or linen consult a dry-cleaner before attempting to remove it yourself. These kinds of fabrics can damage easily, so better safe than sorry! 

1.Tan doesn’t set into our skin immediately, and it is much the same for clothes- so timing is everything

2.Always check the ‘garment care’ tags, sometimes your fabric may have specific washing instructions

3.Don’t rub anything yet! We don’t want to ruin your beautiful clothes by spreading the tan further.

4.Flip the fabric over and run cold water through the stain- you’re basically trying to push it out of the fabric.

5.Cotton fabrics will wash out tan a lot easier than others, the ingredients within tan don’t cause permanent stains to cotton. So that oversized t-shirt you marinate in should be safe! Your regular washing routine should get it out.

6.Treat the stained area with a water and dish soap/ fabric detergent mix. Now be gentle with this next part- take your finger tips and rub your homemade solution into the stain for 1-2 minutes, then pop it in the wash (cold water cycle only).

7.If your clothes are white, you are in luck. Bleach is very effective in removing stains, just apply it to the effected area and then ,as always, put it through the wash on cold.

CRUCIAL: do not wash on hot or leave in the sun until the tan is removed. Unlike jelly, tan sets in heat.


If all else fails call: your mum or your dry-cleaner 😉 

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.

Our Guide to Glow!

The word of the moment in the beauty world is GLOW! Everyone wants to have that natural radiance that’s all over Instagram. We have some hot tips on how to get that ‘I just got back from the Maldives’ glow!

 

– Beautiful skin starts from within- so drink plenty of water!

– Make sure to moisturise after every shower and before and after tanning. Our Crème de la crème is made of Shea Butter that will leave your skin super hydrated.

– Use our Body Exfoliator to gently buff away your dead skin. This will make your complexion appear brighter and will prepare you to apply your tan.

– At least 12 hours after exfoliating choose a self-tan product and apply, but don’t forget to moisturise after to lock in your tan!

– You can also use a gradual tanner to give your skin a natural sun-kissed look all year round.

– One of our favourite product for creating beautiful dewy skin is our instant tan. It contains Mica, which is a natural material that gives off an iridescent shimmer. You can apply it all over your body!

– For a subtle look, apply the instant tan to; the tops of your cheekbones, under your brow ridge, along your cupid’s bow, on your collarbones and your shoulders. This will highlight your features and is a fun way to add some subtle glamour.

– Chuck on some lip balm to top it all off.

 

A little luminosity is an easy way to make you feel better about yourself, and these tips will work for any woman, any skin tone. Let us know in the comments If you have any of your own tips!

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!

 

Naked Tan ABIA Tanning Sponsor!

Naked Tan were very proud to be a major sponsor at the Australian Beauty Industry Awards for a fourth consecutive year. Naked Tan would like to congratulate all of the beauty salons and companies involved, we loved celebrating your hard work with you!

The below article was originally published by Mocha Publlishing

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.”

 

The ABIA’s are proudly owned by mocha publishing.

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

How to become a stand out beauty salon!

 

Are you stuck for ideas on how to ensure your salon is staying competitive with other beauty salons near you? Beauty trends are continually evolving and changing, as are the beauty products your clients are demanding from your service.

 

Naked Tan has a range of posters and POS assists available for you to make your beauty salon interesting and engaging. You can use posters to help promote other services or beauty products that you sell in your beauty salon. When completing a treatment this is a great opportunity for your clients to look around and read your posters sparking conversation. Next time you place an order be sure to ask the friendly Naked Tan team about their range of POS.

 

Loyalty programs and competitions are a great way to ensure you are engaging with your current customers but also bringing awareness to your salon amongst other potential clients. Sometimes collaborating with another brand or businesses can also help broaden your network.

 

Ensuring you are showcasing your beauty work online and interactive with your online community is essential when pushing your beauty salon out to the community. Taking before and after photos, or small videos through a treatment builds excellent digital content as it shows your client first hand what they should expect from your beauty service. Often customers will see your work online and come to your beauty salon because of this.

 

By stocking trending or premium products also helps in drawing in new clients to your salon. If your salon is not stocking the problem solving Naked tan Luxe range you need get in touch with the Naked Tan. The three professional spray tanning products Slimming Tan, 20min Tan and Water Resistant Tan cater to all occasions demands and needs. You can find out more about the LUXE range here.

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

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…

Naked Tan Solutions

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?!

Avoid the heat!

Whilst tanned, avoid long hot showers, baths, saunas and steam rooms!

Naked Tan, Fake Tan, Best Tan, Spray Tan

Whilst tanned, it is extremely important to avoid taking long hot showers, baths, saunas and steam, rooms to increase the length of your tan. When the skin is exposed to any type of heat it opens the pores allowing for a deep cleanse to occur. This is why we advise that they are avoided whilst tanned.

As Naked Tan solution rests on your top layer of skin and doesn’t penetrate through it, the act of cleansing the pore fades or removes the tan straight from the skin. We recommend applying our moisturiser Crème de la Crème or Instant Tan to extend the length of your tan.
