To tan or not to tan while pregnant? Reevaluating your beauty routine when you’re pregnant is a very important thing to do for the health of your baby. Women use so many chemicals on their body every day from soap and shampoo, to hair dye, nail polish and makeup. So it’s only natural to research what parts of your regular beauty routine are now safe or unsafe.
We get tonnes of enquiries about the safety of using self tan during pregnancy – so here’s the answer mummy’s…. Salon spray tans and home tanning application products are considered to be safe in pregnancy. The active ingredient in fake tan (DHA) is non-toxic. DHA does not penetrate the outer layer of the skin, so is not absorbed into the blood stream, which makes it perfectly fine to use whilst pregnant. Sun beds are definitely not safe. Aside from the unsafe levels of UV rays, it is dangerous in pregnancy to have an elevated body temperature. So if you’re feeling a bit pale, stick to a spray tan or home application.
Our pureTAN range is 100% Australian made and contains natural plant based and organic ingredients including Green Tea, Aloe Vera , Organic Coconut oil and macadamia oil. The DHA used in our spray tan is natural plant based DHA derived from sugar cane and formula is free from parabens, Pegs, sulphates and mineral oils.
With her second baby on the way, pureTAN founder Danielle Fletcher is an advocate for tanning throughout a pregnancy. She loves keeping a golden glow whilst pregnant – it’s the one thing to make her feel sexy and hides all the bumps and lumps!
The gorgeous Sarah Jane Young – Lifestyle blogger at She is Sarah Jane, and founder of @mummieswholunch is a huge fan of our range and kept her golden glow all through her pregnancy with baby Mia using our PureBronze Instant tanning foam and professional spray tan in Dark.
Let’s face it. A tan makes you feel good and we all love to be glowing from tip to toe, so embrace your beautiful bronzed curves.
