FIRST DATE SPRAY TAN

Preparing for your first date can be a daunting experience. You want to look perfect and make a lasting impression, and understandably having the perfect tan is very important. A spray tan is the answer to ensuring you’re glowing and feeling confident. Have you heard the funny saying “Thursday- the day I tan and go from a 5 to a strong 8”?

A spray tan can’t be left to the last minute. You need to plan ahead and book in at your nearest salon at least two days before your date. 1. it gives the tan time to settle in and look natural 2. it ensures any fake tan smell will be totally gone 3. it allows time to access whether you need a top-up.

Choosing the right colour tan for your skin tone is one of the most important things when it comes to spray tans. If you’re not sure, trust in your spray tan professional who will be bronzing you. Remember, they do this all day every day and they DO know best. Ou
r best piece of advice would be; don’t go too dark. Stick with a colour that is a couple of shades darker than you’re natural colour. This way, you will look natural and will avoid looking orange.

If you’re feeling like you could go a little darker than you’ve been sprayed, we recommend using our gradual tan each day to build up more of a glow, and on the night of your date add a touch of instant bronzer to key areas that you’ll be showing off such as your legs, arms or décolletage.

Our staple spray tan solutions are available in Dark and Light/Medium, however we’ve developed a beautiful Rapid Tan which is now available at salons around Australia.

Rapid Tan was created with the modern women in mind who is busy juggling a work/life balance. It develops in just 1 hour, however the longer you leave it on to develop, the darker your tan will be. You’re in total control of the depth of your tan.

spray tan puretan

Okay, you’ve done the hard part – standing stark naked in front of a stranger while they spray brown liquid all over your body….now you have to make sure you maintain the tan and make sure it lasts.

I know I know, I said the hard part was over, but luckily for you our PureTAN products have just what you need to make your job a lot easier in making your skin glow and look sun kissed for longer.

HOW TO GLOW ON

Moisturise

After your shower it is important to moisturise, our Coconut Body Crème contains organic coconut oil that hydrates and moisturises the skin which helps the tan to last

Remember, the more you moisturise once you have received the tan, the longer the tan will last.

Hydrate

Drink, Drink, Drink!

Drink as much water as possible! It’s not only great for your skin but scientists believe that keeping hydrated can help extend the life of your skin cells, so drink away and your tan will stay!

Cheat

Maintain your glow by topping up your spray tan with our Gradual Tanning Moisturiser. It not only moisurises the skin which makes the tan last longer, it provides a subtle bronze tint to your skin that will extend your tan.

Avoid

Having long hot showers.

Oil based make up remover

Exfoliating your skin

Rubbing your skin dry – pat your skin with a towel

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.

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.

In celebration of summer and lazy beach days, we partnered with Oz Beauty Expert, Bonnie, to show you how to create a flawless faux glow that will have you ready to bare all in your bright bikini.

What better beauty to showcase our PureBronze products than the gorgeous Eva from IMG.

MG_9029-815x1024

Shot on the glorious beaches of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs by Thom Kerr, Eva was transformed into a golden goddess using our PureBronze Salon Professional Dark Spray Tan.

Adding an extra coat of deep bronze on the shoot, a light layer of our quick-drying dark Instant Tanning Foam was applied.

And the secret to that ultra glossy skin? Our nourishing organic virgin coconut oil. Not only is it great for creating a natural sheen, it also helps maintain the faux glow. By applying coconut oil after every shower, your tan should last you 5-7 days.MG_8468-740x1024

FOAM, LOTION OR SPRAY TAN?

From dark tanning solutions to instant bronzers and moisture rich coconut body products, the pureTAN range has everything you need to get a naturally golden tan that lasts.

We hear from a lot of our customers that they can’t decide what tanning product they should use, or whether they should opt for foam, lotion or spray tan.

So here are a few notes on each option to help you decide which pureTAN product is right for you:

spray or lotion tan

  1. pureTAN Instant Tanning Foam

With two shades available (dark or light/medium) the pureTAN instant tanning foam was developed for busy people who demand a golden rich tan now!

The lightweight foam applies evenly and smoothly, and dries very quickly allowing you to quickly see any areas that may have been missed. It’s the perfect tan for beginners.

With the foam you have two options, wash after one hour for a subtle glow or leave it for longer to develop into a deeper, longer lasting golden colour. We encourage adding another layer of tan after 1hr if you’re really serious about achieving a deep tan.

The formula contains a moisturizer base which conditions your skin as you apply, as well as smell reduction technology so that you can wear with confidence.

And don’t forget to always apply using an application mitt to avoid discoloured hands!

 

  1. pureTAN Instant Tanning Lotion

The pureTAN Instant Tanning Lotion is our best selling product. It is a rich, creamy lotion that provides an even deeper tan than the foam, as well as added moisture for your skin. This is perfect for the summer months when you need to step up your tanning game!

The lotion takes a little more skill to apply, but remains a simple process. Gently massage into the skin to avoid streaks (using an application mitt of course!) and be careful not to rub against anything abrasive or come into contact with water until the tan has developed to the level that you’d like.

Don’t be scared by the initial dark colour of the lotion. It’s simply a dark ingredient that helps show you where you’ve applied the tan. Once you have a shower, the tan will look slightly lighter.

 

  1. pureTAN Spray Tan

Sometimes, it’s best to leave it to the professionals.

pureTAN professional salon solution is stocked in some of the nations best tanning salons and is made using premium and nourishing ingredients.

Spray tans are usually carried out in a salon, in which you are sprayed with a light mist until you achieve a colour that you’re satisfied with.

Professional spray tans guarantee no-streaks and no clumsy mishaps. You walk into a salon and leave 15 minutes later looking radiant.

The spray tan solution is fast drying and if maintained properly, will last longer than a self application.

There are 3 options with pureTAN spray tan solution: PureBronze Medium Golden Bronze for lighter skin tones, PureBronze Dark Bronze for olive skin tones and the latest innovation- PureBronze Rapid 1hr Tan for anyone in a rush. They’re perfect if you have a special occasion to attend, or if you don’t trust yourself applying the tan.

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!
