Preparation is Key!

Welcome to GLOW by pureTAN, your door into the wonderful world of all things golden. Right here you will find a haven of tips and tricks, wise advice, updates on exciting projects and plenty of tanning inspiration!

With this being the inaugural post, we’re going to kick off with a few handy tips that will help you prepare your skin for your next spray tan or self-tan.

Believe it or not, preparation is the most important stage of achieving a flawless tan. Before applying any tan to your skin, you must ensure that your skin is clean, smooth and fresh.

The secret- Exfoliate! Exfoliation is essential to an even tan. Exfoliating works to remove the top layer of skin cells that are dead and dry, and enables your skin to easily absorb any moisture that is applied. It also removes any residual build up of a previous tan, which will help avoid a blotchy tan next time around.

We have developed a super nourishing coconut crème body scrub which uses natural coconut husk and shell to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells, leaving skin silky smooth. And did we mention it smells like tropical island heaven?

Our Pure Moisture products are not just scented with coconut fragrance, they are enriched with 100% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil which offers the skin so many protective and healing benefits.

For those stubborn areas of residual tan as well as the dry-prone areas such as elbows, wrists, knees, ankles and feet we recommend using the body scrub with the assistance of an exfoliating glove.

So jump in the shower, apply the body scrub to your skin with ample water and gently exfoliate to perfection. Thoroughly rinse your skin and voila! You’re now ready to become a bronzed goddess.

Here is what to do, and what not to do, before your next visit to the tanning salon or self-tan application:

The do’s:

  • Shower to clean your skin prior
  • Exfoliate! Exfoliate! Exfoliate!
  • Shave before your tan

The don’ts:

  • Exfoliate any areas of broken skin or burns
  • Apply anything to your skin including moisturizer, deodorant or perfume
  • Wear jewelry
  • Do any exercise or activity that will make you sweat before your tan

Pure moisture Coconut Crème Body Scrub is available now for $12.95 (65ml) and $27.95 (250ml)

PureTAN Pro Self-Tan Removal Mitt is $16.95
