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!

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!

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.
