SPRAY TANNING MYTHS

 

tanmyths

 

Are you afraid and nervous about getting a tan because of all of the tales and myths associated with tans? Orange face, two toned colour and streaky body?

Well We’re here to set you straight and tell you the truth about Spray Tanning!

Myth #1 You Will Be Orange

This is one of the main reasons why so many people are put off by receiving a spray tan, the fear of looking unnatural, orange and being called an Oompa Loompa!

Your tan will look orange if you do not use the tan correctly and if you do not take the right steps to prepare for the tan. If your skin develops an orange hue, it is not because of the tanning solution it is because of the applier.

You do however need to make sure that you choose the right shade of tan for your skin type. PureTAN’s Spray Tanning Solutions come in a medium bronze shade and a dark bronze shade allowing different skin types to get the right bronze glow.

Myth #2 Spray Tans are Bad For You.

Spray Tans aren’t harmful to you or your body. There is no more chemical residue in Spray Tan products that aren’t in other tanning products; Spray Tans would only be dangerous if you swallow a large amount of tanning spray mist – To avoid this, close your eyes and mouth and cover your nose.

Myth #3 The Tan Is Difficult To Take Off

It is a common perception that Spray Tans can be difficult to take off. If you are using the right tools, your tan can easily be removed. Applying moisturiser every day will help you when the time comes to remove your tan, try PureTan’s Coconut Crème Body Scrub it has a moisturising function as well as an exfoliant. A removal mitt is also a quick and easy solution to remove all tan from your body, PureTAN’s Pro Self-Tan Removal Mitt will help your tan come off with hot water and a scrub in one shower.

Myth #4 Spray Tans Don’t Last

I’m sure many of you might think that Spray Tans are a waste of money because you have heard that they ‘don’t last long.’ The longevity of your tan is dependent on your skin care. Proper exfoliation before your tan will allow the tan formulation to stick to your skin cells. Regular use of moisturizer after your tan can expand the life of your tan too – try using PureTan’s Coconut Body Crème to moisturise and hydrate the skin.

Of course, you can expand your tan for even longer with gradual Tan lotion. PureTan’s Gradual Tan is the perfect product to apply on your skin to keep a nice subtle glow of your existing Spray Tan, with it’s moisturising function it will double your tans lifespan.

Myth #5 Moisturise Before You Tan

Whatever you do, do not moisturise before you receive your spray tan. The moisturiser acts as a barrier between your skin and the tanning formula that will prevent the tan from sticking to your skin cells. All you need to do before your tan is exfoliate, exfoliate and exfoliate!

RED CARPET READY LIKE A STAR

Tanning for an event

You don’t have to attend a Red Carpet event for you to look like a celebrity!

Owner of PureTAN Danielle shares her Self Tanning and Spray Tanning tips that will help us look like stars just like PureTAN’s celebrity clients, Carrie Bickmore Tania Zaetta, Tegan Martin, Sherri-Lee Biggs and the Real Housewives of Melbourne’s Chyka, Lydia and Janet.

When talking about the best time to receive a tan, Danielle says that the perfect time to apply self –tan or receive a spray tan is 1-2 days before your event.

“If you receive a tan on the day of your event, it may lead to last minute disasters or an unsuitable shade of bronze with no time to fix the error,“ she said.

Danielle advises that you need to allow time for your tan to fully develop so you can have the perfect golden hue.

“Applying or receiving your tan 1-2 days before ensures that your colour looks rich and fresh and allows time for any touch ups you may need.”

“Adding an extra touch of bronzer to your skin will allow your bronzed skin to glow even more and light up the room, ” she said.

And there you have it ladies, all the pre tanning tips you need that will have you looking like a red carpet celebrity!

JETS x PURETAN

Great swimwear is our vice. We’re addicted! And lucky for us, we’ve become besties with one of Australia’s most loved brands, JETS.

jets swimwear

JETS Swimwear appears throughout our campaign on the smoking hot Natalie Roser, and yesterday we had the pleasure of partnering up with our dear friends again to put on a killer runway show to support the Sony Foundation at Wharf4Ward.

A sea of celebrities took over the Woolloomooloo Wharf to enjoy a James Bond themed afternoon of frivolity with guest performances by Delta Goodrem, Nathaniel and the Hoodoo Guru’s while dining at the finest restaurants Sydney has to offer.

We rubbed shoulders with the likes of Danni Minogue, Natalie Bassingthwaite, Terry Biviano, Kerry-Anne, Osher Gunsberg and so many more.

The highlight of the day was definitely when our sexy Bond girls pulled up to the wharf on a luxury super yacht with Nathaniel doing his thing, before they stormed the wharf turning it into a JETS Swimwear runway show.

The models looked amazing in their super bronzed pureTAN spray tans from Tan Temple in Bondi and we overheard a number of guests commenting on the delicious coconut smell as the models walked by. Secret weapon- our Coconut Body Creme.

And the swimwear.. no words! We can’t wait to get our hands on those white one pieces!

Sony hosted such an incredible afternoon for a heartfelt cause and we are truly grateful for being able to be a part of such a fantastic and inspiring event with some of the most influential people and brands in Australia.

Thank you to Tan Temple who bronzed all of the models on our behalf. To book in your next spray tan visit http://tantemple.com.au

And the biggest thank you to JETS for the opportunity to be a part of something so special.

Wish you were there.

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!
