|Q. I have a big event coming up – when do I need to start thinking about my tan?||A. You need to begin prepping your skin at the beginning of the week – with light exfoliation followed by moisturising. It is really important to have smooth skin before application, not only for a silky finish but to allow the product to last as long as possible too with a really nice fade off period.|
|Q. What kind of preparation should I make? Does winter skin need a different approach?||A. Exfoliation is key. It involves the removal of the oldest skin cells that lie on skin’s outermost surface. It leaves the skin supple and soft for moisturising and tanning. The same routine can be used all year round and the beauty of using TanOrganic products is the natural elements meaning there are no parabens, synthetics or drying agents that damage your skin – TanOrganic’s products actively nourish and moisturise your skin.|
|Q. Should I aim for the same depth of colour as a summer tan?||A. The depth of the colour will depend on your skin tone and your preference. TanOrganic aims to provide a natural sun kissed glow. A lot of users like adding one layer during the week, with an additional layer for the weekend or an occasion. The key to using our products is all in the layering – you can add up to three layers if a deeper colour is desired BUT less is more when it comes to using our products so layer lightly each time.|
|Q. I use a lot of skin creams in the winter to repair summer damage. Will these affect my tan?||A. Skin creams might affect your tan depending on the ingredients, that’s why we felt the need to add a Multi Use Dry Oil to our range to ensure the correct prep before tanning and correct moisturising during tanning to prolong the colour and afterwards. If using products we would always recommend natural products to avoid drying your skin further.|
|Q. How can I keep my tan going for the whole party season?||A. You can keep your tan going strong by following a really good routine – prepping, applying, enhancing and maintaining 😄|
|Q. I’m having a professional spray tan but I’m hoping to keep the glow – can I use a home product to top up?||A. Of course, this is the most important aspect of tanning – maintaining a good glow even after having a professional spray! At home products can almost be better because you get to choose the colour you desire. Sometimes salon sprays can be quite dark – they’ve provided us with endless funny stories and photos over the year, not to mention scared some people into never tanning again!|
