HOW TO APPLY FAKE TAN DURING WINTER

We get asked regularly “how do I apply fake tan during winter?” so we’re here to give you a few simple tips to follow for the perfect (streak-free) winter tan.

Firstly, we can’t stress enough how important it is to gently exfoliate your skin in the bath or shower before you plan on applying your tan. Use a great exfoliating mitt, along with a body scrub for the ultimate results. This removes all dry and dead skin cells that sit on the surface, and evens out the texture of the skin, ready for tanning.

COCONUT BODY SCRUB $22.95

Now we know it’s cold and you don’t want to sit around waiting for your tan to develop, so we have created the perfect product to get you tanned quickly. Our Rapid Tan is fast absorbing, and contains nourishing ingredients that tan and moisturise your skin in just 1 hour. No waiting around in the cold, waiting for your tan to develop. You’ll be beautifully golden and ready to shower in 60 minutes. It’s the ultimate product for winter tanning!

RAPID TAN $32.95

To apply your tan in a fast, clean and streak-free way you MUST use an application mitt. Squeeze a dollop of tanning lotion onto the mitt, and apply the tan to your skin rubbing in a gentle circular motion. Start with your feet and legs, and work your way up your body.

APPLICATION MITT $11.95

While you wait an hour for your tan to develop, we recommend wearing loose clothing and avoid wearing a bra or anything that could rub on your body. Also stay away from water, sweating, and DO NOT apply any other products to your skin such as deodorant, moisturiser or perfume. These could cause the tan to change colour, or they could make marks in your tan.

Nobody wants an uneven or discoloured tan.

Once your hour wait is up, jump in the shower and thoroughly rinse your body with water. Do not use soap! This will prevent your tan from fading quickly, and also drying your skin out.

Our last tip to help with your winter tan goals, is to moisturise moisturise moisturise! Twice a day is the optimum amount. By hydrating your skin you will add longevity to your tan and it will also add an additional touch of glow to your supple skin.

We hope these tips help get you through the remainder of winter with a beautiful tan. If you have any questions you’d like answered, feel free to email or comment on our posts and our tanning experts will share their advice.

THE BEST PLACES TO ESCAPE WINTER AND STAY TANNED

No matter where you are in Australia at the moment, it’s safe to say that the temperature is dropping and you can’t escape feeling the cold. Here in Melbourne it’s certainly taken an arctic turn!

So what is one to do when the cold sets in? Get a spray tan, and head to the tropics.

With inspiration clogging our feeds daily with amazing destinations, we’ve taken our top 5 places as seen on instagram to share with you.

It’s time to get inspired and book a trip away..

  1. MALDIVES- featured on @seewantshop
    With crystal clear water, private over-water bungalows and beautiful sunshine, the Maldives is on our bucket list for escaping the winter chill. Lisa from See Want Shop recently travelled here, and we couldn’t help but envy her every time one of her posts popped up in our feed

  2. AMALFI- featured on @sincerelyjules
    Jules is our style icon, but also our tan inspo! She travelled to the Amalfi Coast recently and her photos are… Wow! Beaches packed with umbrellas, pizza, wine and sunshine. How could you go wrong travelling here. Consider this trip booked!

  3. BAHAMAS- featured on @alexisren
    Water like we’ve never seen before, and a golden body like we’ve never seen before.

You’ll find us avoiding winter in the bahamas!

  4. SANTORINI- featured on @ohhhcouture
    The scenery in Santorini is truly something else. This is one of our favourite places to relax in a glamorous setting.

  5. THAILAND- featured on @sjanaelise
    Our founders Danielle and Michael got married in Thailand and it’s not hard to see why. A relatively short international flight from Australia will land you on the tropical beaches of Thailand.
