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!

Difference between a Self Tan and a Mousse!?

If you’re new to the fake tanning game and are confused about the difference in tanning products Naked Tan are here to help! Over the years different textures and colours have entered the tanning industry. Finding the right sunless tanning product for your skin and needs is really important in ensuring you get the flawless tan!

 

Self -Tan and a tanning mousse are two very different products. Both tanning products will leave your skin golden and bronzed! The difference in the fake tan products however is that the Self Tan is a cream texture similar to that of a moisturiser whilst a tanning Mousse is a foam texture. The Self Tan Cream entered the industry first and is the product leader of DIY tanning. Self Tanning cream is popular amongst those who don’t feel as confident converting over to the foam. The Naked Tan Goddess Self Tan comes in one colour with a gentle 10% DHA, this means it will develop as a medium tan.

 

Fake tan foam is an easy product to use as the bronzer shows up on the skin clearly allowing for you to see the areas you have not yet applied fake tan to, meaning no streaky tans! Naked Tan offer two colours in this product the Tanned Bronzing Mousse and the Chocolate Bronzing Mousse. The tanned is the same colour as the Goddess Self Tan cream creating a medium tan whilst the Chocolate Bronzing Mousse is an ultra dark tan.

 

Both the Goddess Self Tan and Goddess Bronzing Mousse should be applied to the entire body and left on to develop a bronzed tan for 2-4 hours, then rinsed off and pat dried. When applying your fake tan be sure to use the Naked Tan Applicator Mitt for flawless results.

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!

Whether you are using a self-tanning product or enjoying the luxury of a Naked Tan spray tan, our SLS free cleanser offers both a preparation solution as well being used to maintain your tan. Suitable for every skin type, even the most sensitive this gentle wash won’t shorten the length of your tan, ensuring you achieve the gorgeous glow of Naked Tan every time!
