WINTER SKIN TIPS USING ORGANIC COCONUT OIL AND TAN

COCONUT OIL AND TAN- Everything You Need To Know

Do you notice a change in your skin when the winter months roll in?

Dry skin is one of the most common skin complaints during the cold season, which is usually caused by the heating that we use inside, and the cold dry air outside.

The remedy? Coconut Oil! It’s natural and has amazing benefits for your body both inside and out.

PureTAN incorporates this superfood into all of our products, from our tanning lotions and foams, to our range of skincare products.

Fake tan is infamous for drying skin out, regardless of the season. However pureTAN tan actually nourishes the skin with the use of Organic coconut oil as one of its main ingredients. This makes it the perfect tanning product to make your skin glow during winter, and avoid any added dryness.

Keep your skin ultra hydrated throughout winter (and all year round) by exfoliating the dry dead skin away at least once a week with a great exfoliant, followed by a silky rich moisturiser packed with coconut oil- or a straight-up coconut oil!

Our delicious body scrub also includes coconut oil so it not only removes the dead skin, it softens the skin at the same time. Win win..

Adding a teaspoon of coconut oil to your daily diet is also a great idea to nourish your skin and body from the inside out. An easy way to incorporate it into your diet is replacing olive oil in your cooking with coconut oil, or mixing a spoonful into your salad dressing. As the saying goes..”beauty starts from within”!

At pureTAN we LOVE being able to use healthy, natural ingredients on our skin as much as possible. So take a look at our range of tan and skincare and choose your favourite products to keep your skin glowing this winter with coconut oil!

PERTH BEAUTY BREAKFAST

How lucky we were to spend time with some of Perth’s finest beauties, beachfront on a hot summers day.

If you haven’t been to Perth, add it to your bucket list. The beaches are incredible and the babes are beautiful.

Because Perth is literally the most isolated major city in the world, sometimes we forget that it is an option for a holiday destination, and head overseas instead.

But not this time.. we’d been seeing stunning pictures of our west coast popping up in our instagram feed and decided we NEED to visit. So we packed our bags full of tan and coconutty goodness, and headed west to catch up with a group of gorgeous Perth influencers.

We hosted the girls at Odyssea restaurant in City Beach. It’s located directly on the beach with spectacular, uninterrupted views of the bright turquoise Indian Ocean. And the food was fresh and delicious. Definitely worth a visit when you’re in WA.

We spent all morning chatting about all things tanned and girly, and couldn’t have chosen a more perfect morning. The sun was shining, and the girls welcomed us to WA with warm open arms. Seriously.. gorgeous, down-to-earth, friendly girls.

We loaded everyone up with goodie bags filled with our range of tanning and skincare products before we said our goodbyes. And now we can’t wait to see the girls rocking our tan!

You can follow some of our favourite Perth influencers on instagram too:

EASY TO KEEP, NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS

Easy to keep new years resolutions!

Happy new year! You all know we like to keep things real (except for our tans), and what better way to set out upon the new year than with REALISTIC new years resolutions.

You know, the ones that we’ll actually be able to stick to. That are achievable..

We’ve all set them year in, year out. And by December we most certainly aren’t still practising what we preached all the way back in January.

So, we’ve put together our top ten new years resolutions to keep it simple and healthy. We hope you join us on this fabulous year of 2017!

  1. Do.More.Excercise
    We’re all guilty of slacking off over the holiday period, but keeping active is not only important for keeping a nice figure, but also important for our bodies to keep active as we grow older. Set yourself up for a long, healthy and strong life with at least 30minutes of exercise a day. And it doesn’t have to be intense! Find something that you get enjoyment out of.
    Look to our pureTAN girl Renae Ayris for some motivation.
  2. Take care of your skin
    Protect your skin from the sun. Go fake, don’t bake! Tanning your skin can not only cause skin cancer, but it prematurely ages your skin. If you’re heading out in the sun, wear sunscreen and a hat. And if you want those golden beach babe vibes, look no further than a bottle of our fake tan. It’s also important to keep your skin nourished so moisturise, moisturise, moisturise!!!
  3. Eat healthy
    Trade chocolate for fruit & nuts, and cut back on the amount of vino’s you’re having with the girls. Of course, when it’s “that time of the month” and you absolutely NEED a piece of chocolate, go for it. You’re allowed little cheat meals. But, crazy crash diets never work or last, so it’s better to be realistic and make gradual changes to your diet. Reduce your sugar intake, increase your water consumption, and watch your portion sizes.
  4. Get more sleep
    It is extremely important for your mental and physical well being to get a minimum of 7 hours sleep a night. Not only does it make your ability to focus during the day increase, but it also allows your skin enough time to recoup and repair throughout the night. You’ll notice that you look more youthful after a great nights sleep. So put down your phone when you get to bed, and don’t get caught scrolling through instagram while you could be catching up on sleep.
  5. Stress less
    It’s easy to get stressed and emotional about things. But sometimes all it takes is taking a deep breath and a quick life assessment, to realise that stressing will get you absolutely nowhere. And most likely, whatever you’re stressing about is so minuscule in the grand scheme of life. Let go of whatever is stressing you out, and focus on the solution, or completely shift your focus to something more positive in your life.
  6. Go to the dentist
    I dare say this is one thing that we all let slip to the way side. Make time to schedule a routine check up with your dentist to keep your pearly whites sparkling. Your private health insurance will cover your checkup, so there really is no excuse.
  7. Travel more
    Travelling is great life experience. There is so much world out there to explore, most of which we’ll never get to see in our life time. But it’s important to make time to travel, even if it’s a little weekend trip away out of the city for the weekend. It’s good for the soul and for a mental recharge. Having a trip planned also gives you something to work towards.. it’s a light at the end of the dark working tunnel.
  8. Save $$
    Set out a budget, only spend on the necessities, and save for the life changing things. Whether it be a car, a holiday or a house. You seriously don’t need that extra pair of shoes!
  9. Cook more
    Not only is cooking a great way to control what you’re putting into your body, but it’s a great way to de-stress and unwind. Cooking can be very cathartic. Just don’t go crazy and try to cook something super complicated. Keep it simple, with fresh produce. You’ll save money, and you’ll be doing wonders for your health!
  10. Do something for charity
    We don’t all have money to donate, but your time is very valuable too. Find an organisation that means something to you, and ask them how you can help out. Even if it’s just once a year, its much better than nothing at all. And your kindness will be appreciated beyond words. There is always someone who is doing it tougher than you!

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.

IMG_3564

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.

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!

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
