Why we love face tan water and how to use it

For those of you who have already tried this product they know it is a must have and something that is not possible to be without ones you have added it in your routine.

That feeling of being able to be makeup free but still feeling fresh and ready for the day with little to no effort. Not only does it give you a beautiful sun-kissed glow but it also evens out your skin tone and saves you plenty of time.

Our formula has ingredients that hydrate and nourishes your skin to meet with the active ingredients that make the tan since it can dry your skin. That’s how we tried to balance it out to give you the best results possible.

As I mentioned earlier, tan products contain active ingredients that “make” the tan on the top layer of your skin. After application it takes from 4-8 hours for the tan to develop and it can last from 4-7 days. After that time your skin will naturally shed its top layer off and you are back to the starting point.

As you know applying a tan can be tricky at first and for some people they feel insecure because they are scared that it can go wrong. Of course that is something that can happen and it’s not easy to fix quickly. However if for some reason that happens we recommend using exfoliator and cleanser to help the skin to shed up its top layer WITHOUT overdoing it.

This is the reason why we try to explain very well how to apply the face tan water and once you just go for it you’ll notice that it’s very easy to use and no need to be stressed about it.

These are the five main steps of how to apply the Face Tan Water:

  1. Exfoliate the night before or same day
  2. Apply evenly on dry and cleansed skin
  3. Use the pipette and draw up a desired amount (Recommended half pipette)
  4. Use your hands to spread the formula over your face, blend in your hairline, over your ears, under your chin, down and back of your neck and décolletage.
  5. Wash your hands thoroughly after applying

When applying the face tan water there are basically no rules of how to but we recommend following the instructions above and we can definitely give you some ideas how to add it in your routine. Then it’s up to you to test yourself further and find a routine that suits you. For some people they use it once a week while others more often.

If used in the morning:

  • Step 1: Cleanse your skin
  • Step 2: Toner (optional)
  • Step 3: Serum (we recommend our hydrating serum)
  • Step 4: Face Tan Water (allow the formula to absorb into your skin before next step)
  • Step 5: Moisturiser

Reminder: It takes at least 4 hours for the results to start showing.

If used in the evening:

  • Step 1: Cleanse your skin
  • Step 2: Toner (optional)
  • Step 3: Serum (we recommend our hydrating serum)
  • Step 4: Face Tan Water (allow the formula to absorb into your skin before next step)
  • Step 5: Face Oil Serum

Extra tips:

  • If you want to start with less colour we recommend mixing it in your moisturiser
  • Applying the Face Tan Water after the Hydrating Serum has absorbed to your skin gives your skin something extra
  • Applying Face Oil Serum after gives you extra glow and locks in the moisture
  • Store in a fridge for longer lastivity and fresher products.
  • Use sunblocker! The active ingredients that “make the tan” makes your skin more sensitive to the sun so it’s very important to protect your skin.

We are often asked, does this product suit everyone?

To be very honest the answer is No. The reason why is it’s very hard to generalise for everyone. If you have very sensitive skin it might be better to leave it out of your routine however we have had people with sensitive skin testing it and not felt any discomfort at all. Just be aware when you are trying a new product for the first time to keep the same routine you are used to, that way you can find out sooner if this new product suits you or not.
