It’s no secret that a faux glow is the only way to get tanned all year round, avoiding sun damage, burns and more.
However, not all fake tans are created equal, and with a huge selection to choose from it can be difficult to navigate which ingredients you want on your skin, and which ones you don’t.
With your skin being your body’s largest organ, it just makes sense to treat it with care and get your bronzed finish with a natural alternative.
We’ve compiled our best tips for a natural spray tan that will have you glowing in no time!
1. Spray tans based on natural ingredients will not only make your skin look great, but also feel great. Think of it as skin food, filled with antioxidants and other nourishing add-ins to improve the quality of your skin and give you a beautiful golden finish.
2. When you’re looking at different natural formulations, watch about for packaging without expiration dates as you can’t be sure of the product quality as you use it.
3. Australian formulations of spray tans are best, as we have extensive regulations and quality assurance that need to be met in order to be sold.
4. When it comes to the individual natural ingredients, fresh and grade-A, organic and cosmetic grade are the words to keep an eye out for!
5. We love the whole ASYANA Tanning line (Australian owned), filled with green tea, aloe vera, walnut extract and Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), a natural sugar based derivative which, combined, makes your tan last longer and gives a beautiful and intense colour payoff.
6. Eternal Summer by Kel is another great Australian pick for a natural faux glow.
A chocolate based tan with 12% DHA is also bolstered with, Argan Oil, Coconut Oil and Vitamins B5. Eternal Summer by Kel has been recently re-formulated with Erythrulose, a natural tan extender, so you can really make that summer feel last longer!
7. Our final pick for a natural spray tan for a quick at-home touch up is Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Natural Bronze Hydrating Body Spray. It’s a fast-absorbing gradual tanner, free from parabens or phthalates and with the added feel and smell of delicious cocoa butter!
