What is an 100 percent natural tanning active’?
Most ordinary tanners work with a chemical DHA that has been found to dry and damage the skin and may be unhealthy if it is breathed in. Skinny Tan is one of the first self-tanners to use an 100 percent natural tanning active derived from the seeds of the Brassica napus plant instead. The active ingredient works naturally with the amino acids in the skin to create the darkening reaction for a natural looking tan.
Will Skinny Tan make me look “orange”?
Absolutely no-way! Skinny Tan have spent a long time trialing and testing their natural tanning active to ensure there is absolutely no orange. In fact we are so sure that Skinny Tan is the most natural looking colour on the market that we even offer our ‘Best Tan’ guarantee. If you don’t agree that Skinny Tan is the best fake tan you have ever tried simply send it back within 30 days for a full refund.
How does Skinny Tan make my body look firmer?
Skinny Tan includes Guarana a caffeine derivative that is a popular addition in the most popular firming and cellulite creams due to its high caffeine contact that can help stimulate a process that can help visibly reduce the appearance at the surface of the skin. Tanned cellulite also always looks better than white cellulite so by tanning with Skinny Tan you get the double benefit with one application. As we say at Skinny Tan if you can’t tone it - tan it!
Will I lose weight with Skinny Tan?
In terms of actual kilos you will not lose any actual weight with Skinny Tan. The slimming effect of Skinny Tan comes from its effect on reducing the visible appearance of soft surface fat near the surface of the skin. This along with the shading effect of the tan helps muscles look more defined and cellulite look dramatically less pronounced.
Can I use Skinny Tan if I don’t have cellulite and am already thin?
Absolutely yes! The visible firming effect works best on people who look a little saggy but will not cause any harm to people who are already firm. At the end of the day Skinny Tan is also the very best self-tanner because of its instant built-in bronzer, and the long lasting natural tanning. The firming effect is an added bonus!
How long will a Skinny Tan colour last?
Skinny Tan 7-day tanner is a deep long lasting tan that only has to be applied once for a deep lasting tan. Results will vary from person to person and like a real tan depends much on how your skin naturally exfoliates. The typical time is 5-7 days and the time can be lengthened by using the Skinny Tan Pre-tan Primer and the Skinny Tan After Glow Gloss. If you prefer to build your tan gradually try Skinny Tan Gradual Tanner instead.
Can I use Skinny Tan on my face?
Yes! Skinny Tan is a lightweight formula with a built in instant bronzer to help you see exactly how it is applied. The gentle formula made with a naturally derived 100 percent natural tanning active and a naturally-derived skin firmer will give a gorgeous tan and natural improvement to your face as well as your body.
If I get my tan in the am, can I take a shower that night?
For the deepest, natural long lasting tan we advise you leave your Skinny Tan overnight. The instant bronzer in the tan means you should be able to apply it and go right out for the evening. If you do have to shower while waiting for your full colour to develop please wait at least 5 hours before washing.
Can I put make-up on after I tan?
Yes. It is recommended to wait a few hours before applying. You can use any make-up although you may need to go a shade or two darker with your foundation. However Skinny Tan tanner and After Glow Gloss give such a gorgeous, even, natural tanning effect that hides blemishes that you shouldn’t actually need to use a foundation make-up at all.
How can I help my tan last longer?
At Skinny Tan we have done a great deal of research on how to get a longer lasting effect. Our formula has been made to absorb well and last longer. However following a good skin care regimen before and after sunless tanning will help a sunless tan last longer. Our Pre-tan Primer works to exfoliate old skin cells so only new skin cells are tanned. This means the skins natural exfoliation will take longer. Also by keeping skin hydrated with our 24-hour After Glow Finishing Gloss will help your tan last longer.
What is the instant ‘guide tan’?
Skinny Tan includes an instant cosmetic bronzer that allows you to see where you are applying the tanner and means that you are instantly tanned and ready to go out the door already brown. 5- 8 hours later the long -lasting 100 percent natural tanning active will begin to develop. This instant cosmetic colour washes off revealing the long lasting colour that will remain for up to 7 days.
Why is it important to use the Skinny Tan After Glow Gloss?
It is important to keep skin moisturized after sunless tanning as dry, flaky skin will slough off faster and colour will fade sooner. You basically want to slow down your body’s natural exfoliation process. The After Glow Gloss will also highlight your tan so it looks like that glossy airbrush effect you see on models in photographs.
Does Skinny Tan have that horrible after-odour often associated with sunless tanning?
Skinny Tan does not use a chemical DHA so any tanning smell is significantly reduced. Skinny Tan has also been scented with a delicious holiday coconut smell that many customers agree is the best smelling tanner on the market today.
When should I use Skinny Tan Pre-tan Primer?
You should use Pre-Tan Primer before each Skinny Tan application. It is best to wait about 8 hours between using your pre-tan primer and applying your tan if you can. You can also use Pre-tan Primer to help remove your Skinny Tan at the end of 7-days. You MUST never use Pre-tan Primer during the 7-days that you are tanned with Skinny Tan
How long after tanning should I wait to enjoy a pool/spa/ocean?
We recommend avoiding these situations for the first 48 hours following Skinny Tan application. Chlorinated pools & spas can increase the rate in which the skin exfoliates causing the tan to wear and fade.
Can I use Skinny Tan when pregnant?
Skinny Tan is a non-toxic that has been manufactured from quality ingredients to the highest Australian standards and is not known to have any detrimental effects on an expectant mother. However as with anything at this special time it is always best to check with your health practitioner before tanning.
If I have sensitive skin, should I be concerned about a possible reaction?
Skinny Tan uses a naturally sourced tanning active from seeds and naturally derived firming ingredients so is less likely to cause a reaction . However every sensitive skin condition is different so it is best to ask or patch test first on a small area before completing a full tanning application if you are concerned
