Brown complexion skin-friendly!

Things you should know about self-tanners.

Sunbathing has not been known for a long time what a skin-friendly way to get brown, but you still want to get a complexion on your skin with the help of the first spring sun's rays. Fortunately, today there are many other ways to achieve a golden brown complexion, such as THE TAN CO. self-tanning foam. However, before purchasing a product, there are a number of questions in your head that you want to answer.

Why, after using a self-tanning product, often has the smell of "barbecue chicken" on the skin?

This peculiar smell is produced by the active ingredient DHA (dihydroxyacetone, a derivative of sugar). Reacting with proteins, DHA paints the skin surface brown. The reaction in the skin produces a characteristic smell within 1h, which usually disappears within a couple of hours. Often a characteristic smell manifests itself even before the use of the product. Applying the product to the skin in the evening before bedtime, the smell will definitely bother you less the next day. It is also worth thoroughly rinsing yourself with lukewarm water after the end of the life of the self-priming product.

How long does the complexion stay on the skin?

Most common self-tanning products stay on the skin for four to seven days. Toning body products last until the first wash. Our self-tanning foams last 7-10 days.

Does the natural sun start using the browner?

Yes, it will. Since browners don't have a sun protection factor (SPF), you can also burn yourself in the sun. Therefore, it is very important to use sunscreen with a suitable SPF when sunbathing in order to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

Do you need to use different products on the body and face?

THE TAN CO. body foams contain moisturizing ingredients and can be used both on the body and on the face. In so-called sockets specifically designed for the face, the amount of DHA is lower. If you have a more sensitive facial skin, it is recommended to choose an extra product for facial skin.

How to achieve a perfect and even tan?

Be sure to peel the skin 24 hours before applying the self-tanning foam. Dry and rough skin can unevenly absorb the product into the pores, and then the spots-streaks will be insured. In order to get leg and arm blades with the perfect complexion, apply a brownizer to these areas last using the residue left in the applicator glove or our special make-up brush. Put it only on the hands and feet (imagine how they sunbathe on the beach). Lightly handle the hand and foot blades with a damp napkin, scattering the border with non-tanned areas. You can lubricate the knees and elbows before with an oil-free cream, since in these places the browning cream tends to remain too intense in tone.

Can I go swimming in spa right now and wear light clothes?

Ideally, we recommend waiting until the desired result has been achieved, and before you go to the pool, also take a shower. This usually takes 6-8 hours. When your tan is ready, you can swim in both seawater and the pool, but you have to take into account that the complexion may wear out faster. White clothing can generally get dirty, because the body secretes moisture, and in case of sweating, the browning product still tends to give color.

Our self-tanning product Medium Mousse has already been awarded several beauty awards.
