BASE FOR YOUR FACE- Tanning your face with Puretan

A base tan for your face…

A question we get asked a lot is whether it’s OK to use tan on your face. Which it absolutely is! However the problem is, that we wash and cleanse our face so often that the tan wears off our face faster than it does our body.

This causes your face to be several shades lighter than your body, which is not what you want. Especially if you’re going makeup free.

We’ve developed the perfect face tan which can replace your daily face moisturizer or sunscreen as it is hydrating, fast absorbing and has an SPF 15 included. The tan in our Face Tan is subtle so that you can build it up each day until you reach your desired colour.

The light weight, fast absorbing formulation allows you to put makeup straight over the top without it looking greasy.

Our Face Tan also just won Instyle Magazines Best Beauty Buy awards, so you know you’re onto a winner!

If you have blemishes, pigmentation or freckles on your face, our Face Tan is a great way to hide the imperfections and balance out your skintone.

With ingredients such as organic coconut oil and aloe vera, our Face Tan is also rich in antioxidants which help repair the skin and also assist with antiaging.

A tip to remember with your makeup when wearing fake tan, is that you may need to change your colour. Go a shade darker than you regularly would to avoid an obvious makeup line.

We know that applying fake tan to your body can be hard enough, but when it comes to your face it’s something most of us have yet to conquer; luckily PureTAN’s Face Tan makes tanning your face a whole lot easier with it’s ultra light-weight cream that is instantly absorbed leaving your skin feeling light and naturally bronzed.

Be face ready

Wash your face with your normal cleanser and then gently exfoliate your face, making sure you keep away from oil-based products as oils create a barrier towards tan.

There is no need to moisturize your face as our PureTAN Face tan has a moisturising formulation, including coconut oil. It also includes an SPF 15, so it protects your skin while it nourishes and tans.

Apply the Tan

Wash and dry your hands and make sure you are in a well lit space so that you can see exactly how and where you’re applying the tan to your face. Apply a small amount of PureTAN Face tan – about the size of a small coin – and don’t forget you can always add more if you like later.

Apply the tan as if you were applying moisturizer, using circular motions with your fingertips to blend it evenly as you would a foundation all around your face up to your hair line and under your chin.

If you’re a first timer, PureTAN’s self-tan application Mitt makes your application a lot easier to blend in. And using a small amount the first time allows for the option to apply more later if you haven’t achieved your desired tan yet.


Wash your hands immediately and wait 10-15 minutes for the formula to dry.

Don’t forget to use a foundation that matches your new sun kissed colour to ensure it looks as natural as possible.

Happy tanning
