PROLONG YOUR TAN

How to make your tan last as long as possible..

spray tan puretan

Okay, you’ve done the hard part – standing stark naked in front of a stranger while they spray brown liquid all over your body….now you have to make sure you maintain the tan and make sure it lasts.

I know I know, I said the hard part was over, but luckily for you our PureTAN products have just what you need to make your job a lot easier in making your skin glow and look sun kissed for longer.

HOW TO GLOW ON

Moisturise

After your shower it is important to moisturise, our Coconut Body Crème contains organic coconut oil that hydrates and moisturises the skin which helps the tan to last

Remember, the more you moisturise once you have received the tan, the longer the tan will last.

Hydrate

Drink, Drink, Drink!

Drink as much water as possible! It’s not only great for your skin but scientists believe that keeping hydrated can help extend the life of your skin cells, so drink away and your tan will stay!

Cheat

Maintain your glow by topping up your spray tan with our Gradual Tanning Moisturiser. It not only moisurises the skin which makes the tan last longer, it provides a subtle bronze tint to your skin that will extend your tan.

Avoid

Having long hot showers.

Oil based make up remover

Exfoliating your skin

Rubbing your skin dry – pat your skin with a towel

PURE BEAUTIES 2016

The most exciting news of the year has arrived! We’re thrilled to unveil our brand new Pure Beauty campaign featuring the spectacularly beautiful Brooke Hogan, Madison Edwards and Sarah Czarnuch.

IMG_3432

Bikinis and kaftans packed, we travelled to one of our favourite holiday destinations, balmy Bali, to spend a few days relaxing poolside with the girls (and cocktails in hand!) at the stunning Karma Kandara resort, and shoot our favourite campaign yet!

From the sparkling turquoise blue pool to the white sandy beach below the cliffs, this luxe resort played the ultimate back drop.

Photographer Bonnie Cee captured the bronzed beauties effortlessly in their element, while makeup artist Bonnie Gillies perfected the girls tan with our range of products.

Bonnie G spray tanned the girls the night before the shoot in our dark spray tanning solution and added an extra layer of bronze the day of the shoot using our Instant Wash Off Bronzer. Finally, an ample lathering of our organic coconut oil on their bodies added an extra sheen and enhanced the tan for the shots.

Stylist Nicole Lucas not only brought a whole lot of LOL’s to the trip, but pulled the looks together for the shoot with a splash of her personality shining through in the colours and accessories. Nicole styled the girls in Jets Swimwear, Kopper and Zink, and Suboo.

After a day in the scorching sun with an incredible team, we finished it off with a refreshing group jump into the pool.

Our villas, each with their own private pool, were a relaxing sanctuary to unwind after the shoot. But the following day we were ready for a new adventure…

The girls all jumped in a car and we headed to Seminyak for a serious girl-time session.

First up we did a little shopping at the markets (hello crochet bikini’s!), followed by hour long massages at BodyWorks. Then it was time to get down to business.. a swim and cocktails at Ku De Ta, then onto Motel Mexico for taco’s, too many margarita’s to remember and a few sneaky tequila shots. And last but not least, we headed to La Favela for a serious boogie on the dance floor.

Needless to say, we all felt a little dusty the following day but the incredibly fun night was worth it. And what better place to recover than at Karma Kandara?

Now we’re back and ready to make 2016 our year, and we’re kicking things off with the first instalment of our killer new campaign. We hope you love it as much as we do, and we can’t wait to show you more over the coming months.

And don’t forget, we’re on the hunt for our next pure beauties so if you want to be a part of our next shoot, ensure you tag your tanned pictures with #purebeauty @puretan.

TRAVEL WITH YOUR TAN

It’s almost time for summer holidays which has us thinking about one thing. How to travel with a tan and maintain it throughout the entire trip.

Here are our travel tan tips:Slide1

Tip One: Prepare your skin!

As we always say, preparation is the most important stage of tanning. And most things in life!

In the lead up to your trip, ensure that you exfoliate every evening and moisturise your skin after every shower. This will remove any dead skin cells and hydrate your skin so that once you’re ready to apply your tan, it will be smooth and even.

Tip Two: The Night Before

Apply pureTAN Dark Tanning Lotion using an application mitt the night before your trip. 

Applying the tan the evening before you depart will give you the optimum amount of time with a great tan during your holiday. Plus your skin will be fresh and radiant from all the recent exfoliating and moisturising.

Tip Three: Stay Hydrated

Travel is not ideal for our skin. Hours in planes and air-conditioned cars and hotels cause intensely dry skin so it is incredibly important to moisturise as often as possible.

The more moisturised your skin is, the healthier you will be and the longer your tan will last.

And don’t forget to drink plenty of water.

Tip Four: During Your Holiday 

Even though you’re on holidays, it’s important to remember to take care of your skin. You must continue to gently exfoliate every few days, as well as moisturise after every shower. And if you think this requires lugging around too many beauty products, we have the solution- our Pure Moisture Travel Pack with a mini coconut trio including organic coconut oil, body creme and body scrub. And it comes in a super cute cosmetic bag that is perfect for the beach!

Two other important things are:

  • Protect your skin from harmful UV rays with a great SPF.
  • Maintain your glow with a gradual tan.

Our Gradual Tan Daily Moisturiser combats these two things at once with an SPF 15, organic coconut oil for rich moisture, and a subtle tan that will keep you bronzed and radiant throughout your holiday.

Now it’s time to pack your bags and enjoy your summer holiday!

Safe Travels,

JETS x PURETAN

Great swimwear is our vice. We’re addicted! And lucky for us, we’ve become besties with one of Australia’s most loved brands, JETS.

jets swimwear

JETS Swimwear appears throughout our campaign on the smoking hot Natalie Roser, and yesterday we had the pleasure of partnering up with our dear friends again to put on a killer runway show to support the Sony Foundation at Wharf4Ward.

A sea of celebrities took over the Woolloomooloo Wharf to enjoy a James Bond themed afternoon of frivolity with guest performances by Delta Goodrem, Nathaniel and the Hoodoo Guru’s while dining at the finest restaurants Sydney has to offer.

We rubbed shoulders with the likes of Danni Minogue, Natalie Bassingthwaite, Terry Biviano, Kerry-Anne, Osher Gunsberg and so many more.

The highlight of the day was definitely when our sexy Bond girls pulled up to the wharf on a luxury super yacht with Nathaniel doing his thing, before they stormed the wharf turning it into a JETS Swimwear runway show.

The models looked amazing in their super bronzed pureTAN spray tans from Tan Temple in Bondi and we overheard a number of guests commenting on the delicious coconut smell as the models walked by. Secret weapon- our Coconut Body Creme.

And the swimwear.. no words! We can’t wait to get our hands on those white one pieces!

Sony hosted such an incredible afternoon for a heartfelt cause and we are truly grateful for being able to be a part of such a fantastic and inspiring event with some of the most influential people and brands in Australia.

Thank you to Tan Temple who bronzed all of the models on our behalf. To book in your next spray tan visit http://tantemple.com.au

And the biggest thank you to JETS for the opportunity to be a part of something so special.

Wish you were there.

SPRAY TANNING TIPS

You can thank us later!

We’ve put together a list of the best tips you’ll ever receive for the perfect spray tan. These useful tips will not only guarantee you will leave the salon looking like a bronzed goddess, but will ensure you maintain the flawless glow for up to ten days.

spray tanning tips

24-48 hours before spray tan
Get your bikini wax, any other body waxing and shaving out of the way. This will allow the pores to close back up before you get your tan.

Get your mani/pedi before the session otherwise the acetone the nail salons use will remove the tan on your hands leaving them a different colour to your body.

Prepare your skin by exfoliating thoroughly and moisturize!!

The day of
Shower and exfoliate your body again to remove any dead skin as well as any residual moisturizer, deodorant or perfumes. Using an exfoliating mitt and a body scrub, concentrate on your hands, knees and elbows. We recommend our coconut body scrub and pro mitt for exfoliating.

Do not wear any makeup, body lotions, perfumes or deodorants as they react with the tanning properties and could make your skin turn green.

Remove all jewellery

Wear loose dark clothing and a pare of flip slops

Once you’ve been sprayed
Wait a few minutes before getting dressed to allow the tan to absorb into the skin. This will help avoid any bad markings.

Avoid water and sweat for up to 8 hours. This means no shower, no gym, no housework (dream!) and staying out of the rain.

Refrain from using any deodorants or perfumes until your tan has fully developed and you’ve showered. This is the difficult part, as your skin begins to smell, but the wait is worth it!

After it has developed
Have a shower and rinse yourself thoroughly until the water runs clear. Avoid using any harsh soaps as they could strip your tan.

Apply a super nourishing moisturizer such as our coconut body crème which not only smells like coconut heaven, it contains organic coconut oil which is intensely moisturizing and quickly absorbs into the skin. The more you moisturize, the longer the tan will last.

Maintaining the glow
Continue to moisturize your skin after every shower. This is crucial. We recommend maintinaing the tan with our Gradual Tanning Moisturiser which contains organic coconut oil and SPF 15. It’s the perfect replacement for your regular moisturizer and makes your tan last much longer with its subtle daily tanner.

Avoid long hot baths and swimming in chlorinated water.

Pat yourself dry after showers rather than rubbing with a towel.

Shave the least amount of times possible as each shave removes a layer of tan.

After 7 days, gently exfoliate your skin each day so that your tan begins to fade evenly. We’ve all seen those people who look patchy and I’m sure you want to avoid that!

TAN APPLICATION TIPS

The best tips for tanning application from our very own expert, Danielle Newton.

tanning tips

Whether you’re a regular tanner or just about to apply your inaugural golden coat, we all suffer the same nerves about the risk of a tan-gone-wrong.

At pureTAN we take our tanning seriously and the way we see it, the perfect application really is a form of art.

Our resident guru, founder Danielle Newton, has come to the rescue. She knows all the tricks of the trade and has created 3 simple steps for you to follow to achieve a flawless even tan.

If you follow Danielle’s advice, you’ll be applying tan like a pro instantly.

STEP 1: Exfoliate

For the ideal application to ensure a flawless finish “get rid of excess dead skin on the body by using our NEW Pure Moisture Coconut Body Scrub” says Danielle Newton Owner / Co-Founder of PureTAN.

“By using this delicious cream scrub you guarantee that the skin you’re turning brown won’t slough off and disappear for at least a few days. Our Pure Moisture products are not just scented with coconut fragrance, they are based on 100% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil which offers the skin so many protective and healing benefits.

STEP 2: Apply Tan

For an even application the PureTAN Lotion in Light or Dark contains a colour so you can see where you have applied it and make sure there are no patches left without your tan. Use the PureTAN Pro Application

Mitt for an even streak free finish. For the final touch that will give your skin that gorgeous sun-kissed glow, the PureTAN PureBronze Lotion contains a hint of shimmer leaving your skin with a honeyed glow

STEP 3: Moisturise

Once your tan has developed ensure your skin is regularly and deeply moisturized. “Our NEW Pure Moisture Extra Virgin Coconut oil which is deeply nourishing and healing. It’s natures miracle ingredient for

hydration ! “ says Newton. “Put a teaspoon size of the coconut oil in the palm of your hand and warm it until it liquefies. Indulge yourself in a gentle massage, rubbing it into your skin. The benefit of coconut oil on the skin is that is the small molecular structure of coconut oil allows for easy absorption through the skin, giving it a soft, smooth texture and prolonging your tan.”

Here is a fantastic video that we’ve personally made for you so that you can view the application process from start to finish:

Preparation is Key!

glow by puretan

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
