Top Tanning Tips from Sunkissed

Sunkissed have given their Top Tanning Tips on how to look bronzed and beautiful and to answer any questions you may have when self-tanning!

For a longer-lasting, streak free tan:

💕Exfoliate and shave 24 hours before applying
💕Always use a mitt to apply instant tan
💕Apply lotion or Vaseline around your nails, ankles, knees and elbows to avoid staining
💕Moisturise dry areas after tanning too - this gives a more natural finish
💕Use a brush to apply to your face
💕Refrain from washing your hands after tanning to avoid white patches

Sunkissed Tan Mousse FAQS

HOW LONG WILL MY TAN LAST?
Your tan will last up to 5 days.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR THE TAN TO DEVELOP?
We recommend waiting for 6-8 hours to get the best results from your tan. Our Express Mousse starts developing after 1 hour - leave on for 8 to achieve the darkest shade.


WHAT IS A GUIDE COLOUR?
The colour you see when you apply the tan - which washes off after your tan has developed. 

DOES THE TAN WASH OFF?
No, once it has developed it will not wash off. Only the guide colour washes off.

CAN I USE IT ON MY FACE?
Of course!

DO I NEED AN APPLICATION MITT?
We recommend using a mitt with barrier-proof technology - this stops product getting onto your hands. 

WHAT IS DHA?
The key ingredient in your tan! DHA (dihydroxacetone) is an active ingredient that reacts with the proteins in the surface cells of the skin, producing a darkening effect. 

DOES IT CONTAIN PHTHALATES, SULPHATES, PARABENS, SILICONES OR ALCOHOL?
No, there's no nasties here!

I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN - CAN I USE IT?
Sunkissed products are dermatologically tested for all skin types - including sensitive. However, we always recommend conducting a patch test first.

WILL IT DRY OUT MY SKIN?
No, Sunkissed self-tan products contain lots of moisturising ingredients and they are free from alcohol, an ingredient known to dry skin. 

 


HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DEVELOP?
You'll send the tan start to develop in 2-4 hours and it'll continue to darken up for up to 8 hours. 

IS THERE A GUIDE COLOUR?
Our Gradual Tan Lotion is like a moisturiser - there's no guide colour. Simply apply like a lotion for a streak-free finish.

DOES THE TAN WASH OFF?
No, our Gradual Tan doesn't wash off and lasts up for up to 5 days.

CAN I USE THE GRADUAL TAN DAILY?
Yes! Use daily to top-up and maintain your tan.

CAN I USE IT IN ON MY FACE?
Yes - the Gradual Tan is safe to use on the face.

DO I NEED TO USE AN APPLICATION MITT?
As there's no guide colour, not necessarily! If you apply with your hands, make sure to wash them afterwards to avoid tanned palms. 

DOES IT CONTAIN PHTHALATES, SULPHATES, PARABENS, SILICONES OR ALCOHOL?
No, there's no nasties here!

I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN - CAN I USE IT?
Sunkissed products are dermatologically tested for all skin types - including sensitive. However, we always recommend conducting a patch test first.
