Mamma Mia! The Musical with PureTAN

Mamma Mia! We’re thrilled to be a part of one of our favourite musical productions ever.

As the official tanning partner for Mamma Mia! the Musical, we’re currently touring Australia with the talented cast and crew to make sure that everyone stays glowing and golden for each performance.

Mamma Mia! is set in the Greek Island- one of our favourite holiday destinations. And one thing we know for sure, is that nothing compares to a rich Mediterranean tan.

So what to do to achieve this colour from the other side of the world you might ask? Simple, Pure Bronze Xtreme!

Our Xtreme tan develops into the deepest, darkest colour in our range within 1-4hrs.

Enough about the tan for now.. let’s talk about the show.

Mamma Mia! is jam packed with the greatest hits by ABBA. It’s a fun and fabulous show, but our favourite part has to be the ending. Not because we want it to finish (actually the complete opposite), but because the music steps up a notch and the cast embrace full-blown ABBA costumes.

We’ve never EVER been to a musical before where the entire audience is up, dancing and singing along having the greatest time ever.

We’re not biased at all. But this has to be the most fun musical we have ever seen and we highly recommend securing yourself tickets.

Mamma Mia! is currently showing in Sydney at the Capitol Theatre until May 6, and will be hitting the following major cities next:

PERTH- May 2018

MELBOURNE- July 2018

ADELAIDE- October 2018

See all of you dancing queens there! Glow xx

Tips on wearing fake tan for your wedding day and how to prepare.

By now you’ve probably planned most details of your wedding, and it’s time to start thinking about the finer details like your faux glow.

Wearing white with a fresh spray tan is always a little daunting, so pureTAN founder and tanning guru Danielle Fletcher has put together a few tips on how to prepare for your big day and guarantee your tan is on point (without leaving brown marks on your dress!).

“As always we recommend the first step to any great tan be exfoliation. Soak in a bath or have a nice warm shower and give your body an all-over scrub using a gentle exfoliating body scrub and a mitt or brush. Removing the top layer of dead skin will ensure a smooth, streak-free tan and will stop it sticking from places on your body that tend to be dryer than others such as your knees and elbows.” says Danielle.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again! Exfoliation is key!!

Besides the concerns of getting the tan on your dress, most women are also unsure of when exactly to get the tan done before the big day. Danielle recommends booking in to have your spray tan 2 days before your wedding day. “This allows the tan to fully develop and settle into the skin, any excess residue to be fully washed off, and any fake tan smell to subside. It also allows the time to have any touch-ups done to fix any imperfections should you need any.” Danielle points out here that chances of needing any touch-ups is slim, especially if you prepare your skin properly beforehand and don’t have any moisturisers or deodorants on when you go to your appointment.

As Danielle mentioned above, by allowing yourself 2 days for your tan to be completely absorbed into your skin and any residue to be washed and worn off, you’re guaranteeing that no tan should rub off on your dress!

If you’re worried about being orange or too dark, make sure the salon you’re going to uses a premium quality tan from a reputable brand (like pureTAN- wink wink*) and ask your spray tanner to only spray you a couple of shades darker than your natural skin tone.

Don’t be frightened by the initial colour immediately after the tan has been applied to your skin! This is just a coat of bronzer and will wash off to reveal your tan below. And also don’t be disappointed if you wash off your tan and you feel lighter than you expected. By allowing yourself those extra 24-48hrs before the wedding, the tan will continue to develop. And if you still feel like you need an extra little boost of tan, try a gradual tanning moisturiser.

It’s also important to note that in the days following your spray tan, keeping your skin moisturised is super important.It not only keeps your skin glowing, but stops it from wearing off too soon.

And Danielle’s last tip for your wedding day? “Your skin will be a different colour to your usual tone, so make sure you match your makeup! Having the right coloured foundation to match the rest of your body will make your tan look more natural.”
