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. Model Alexis Ren travelled to the Bahamas and proved to us how much we NEED to make our way there and build on our tropical tan! Bright blue water, perfect white sand and sun drenched palm trees. 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. White traditional villas atop dramatic cliffs with views out to the deep blue ocean and volcanoes, our favourite past time is tanning by the pool in Santorini and watching the incredible sunsets in Oia.

     

  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. Best thing? It’s hot all year round! And did we mention thai cuisine is our favourite? Bronzed babe Sjana has got us dreaming of going back to visit soon..

And want to know what our favourite travel companion is? We can’t go anywhere without our SPF Gradual Tanning Moisturiser. This is a must for protecting your skin, hydrating your skin, and adding an extra glowing boost!

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!
