BENEFITS OF SPRAY TANNING

Who doesn’t love having other people do things for them? Getting a spray tan definitely has it’s benefits.

Firstly, there is the most obvious factor- that it is the safest way to tan. You keep your skin away from harmful UV rays, but get an amazing bronzed body in the process.

Anyone who regularly tans, whether it be self-tan or spray tan, will tell you that a spray tan will almost always give you an all-over, even glow. Spray tan salons are professionally trained to provide a streak free tan.

Having a spray tan is typically faster than you can apply tan to yourself, and you have a professional who can apply the tan to those hard to reach places (*wink wink- we’ve all had a boyfriend or friend tan our backs at some point!).

Having an even spray tan works to even out skin tone, hiding any blemishes including stretch marks and the dreaded cellulite.

Our spray tan solution is made using premium ingredients that not only tan, but nourish the skin at the same time. Our solutions include Organic macadamia and coconut oil, aloe vera, vitamin C and green tea which all aid in soothing the skin while making the tan last longer.

SPRING TANNING

Now that we’re into the full throws of Spring, it’s time to start preparing your skin for warmer weather. Bye bye winter!!

Spring means the sunshine is back, the flowers are blossoming, and the racing season is about to begin. When it comes to wardrobe, this means denim shorts, pretty dresses, and showing more skin that you have for the last few months.

The trick to the perfect Spring tan, is to keep it natural.. and believable. Our best piece of advice is to stick with a shade lighter than you would in summer. Our light/medium tanning lotion and foam are the ultimate products to give you a subtle golden glow.

slide1

It’s best to start lighter, and then you can build the depth of your tan by adding additional layers if you want a deeper bronze.

Another beautiful product that will give you a subtle glow is our Gradual Tanning Moisturiser. It nourishes and tans your skin at the same time, but will only add a touch of tan each day. It also includes SPF 15 to protect your skin from harmful sun rays. This product is a great product to try if you’re a fake tanning beginner!

Put your frocks on and get ready to glow! Spring is in the air xx

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!

Happy Tanning

BEAUTIFUL BRONZED BABY BUMPS

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.

FAKE TANNING YOUR FACE

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.

face tanHere’s how to do it:

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.

After

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.

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.

IMG_3564

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.
