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!

ORGANIC + CRUELTY FREE, PURE MOISTURE

pureTAN is and always will be cruelty free! We love nature and we love our furry friends.

But what you might not know, is that many of our products are made using 100% organic virgin coconut oil.

Slide1

Our Pure Moisture range is made from Thailand’s best quality, organic hand selected coconuts, and bottled within hours from picking to prevent oxidization and guarantee freshness.

Pure Moisture was developed by the creators of pureTAN to provide you with skin care products that not only nourish the skin, but have other benefits such as exfoliating away dead skin cells to provide an even skin tone, reducing cellulite, healing broken skin and rashes, as well as conditioning hair.

The Pure Moisture range contains no nasty chemicals, which makes it safe to use on all skin types. And it means they’re also environmentally friendly.

The Pure Moisture range is made up of 3 key products; Coconut Body Creme, Coconut Body Scrub, and a straight up 100% Organic Coconut Oil.

The body creme is a luxurious thick and creamy moisturiser that smells like coconut heaven. It deeply nourishes the layers of your skin, leaving you looking soft and luminous.

The coconut body scrub exfoliates and moisturises simultaneously. Ground coconut shells create a grit that rubs away the top layer of dead skin to smooth out your complexion, while the coconut oil moisturises in an effective and fast absorbing way.

And last but not least, our 100% Organic Coconut Oil can be used on skin, hair and even in your cooking. It’s a fantastic all-round product that has so many healthy benefits it has been named one of nature’s superfoods.

COCONUT OIL FOR HAIR

Coconut Oil is a healthy nourishing intensive treatment for summer hair. It is especially hydrating for hair that is dry and damaged from being bleached, or from spending hours swimming in the ocean or pool.

coconut oil hair

Pure Moisture 100% Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil contains proteins not found in other hair oils.

Coconut oil is a better conditioner for hair than any synthetic one available in the market. Use of warm coconut oil helps in keeping hair shimmering and soft, like perfect mermaid hair. Apply some warm oil at night and wash your hair the next morning. This can be repeated every few days for healthy, strong and conditioned hair.

The antibacterial properties of coconut oil also protect the scalp against feeling itchy and helps hair stay healthy.

The various fatty acids present in coconut oil serve as very good anti-dandruff agents and are far better than any anti-dandruff shampoo. Regular application of coconut oil can help you get rid of dandruff forever. Coconut oil mixed with lukewarm water and castor oil can also be effective in treating dandruff. Massage the scalp and hair with this mixture for ideal results.

Another amazing tip for coconut oil is to use as a treatment for split ends. If you have a lot of split ends in your hair, it is generally advised to cut them, but in case this problem appears on a small number of your hair strands, then you can use simple home remedies to solve the problem. Massage your hair with coconut oil for a few minutes; this will help in minimizing the split ends.

Pure Moisture 100% Pure Coconut Oil is made from Thailand’s best quality organic hand selected coconuts, bottled within hours from picking to prevent oxidiazation and guarantee freshness. Pure Moisture Coconut Oil is the perfect hair treatment.

Have the perfect summer hair with Pure Moisture 100% Organic Coconut Oil. Available now here.

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,

Glow xx
