Bare Tan differs from other tanning products on the market in that the active ingredient used is derived from sugar. Where as other tanning solutions on the market are derived from beets, carrots, or cocoa resulting in an orange or grey undertones. Bare Tan is similar to the oxidization process of an apple. An apple browns as it is exposed to air, the same thing will happen with Bare Tan. The longer you "marinate" for, the deeper the tan, without any orange undertones.
Immediate bronze glow (no more heavy bronzers)
Highest Quality DHA
No artificial fragrances
No harsh chemicals
Always fresh with an 8 month shelf-life
HOW LONG WILL MY BARE TAN LAST?
This depends on several factors including your skin type, physical activity and aftercare. Your tan should last minimum of a week, and has the potential to last as long as two weeks. To increase the longevity of your tan, we highly recommend our paraben-free BARE Tan extending moisturiser.
DO I NEED TO WORRY ABOUT ORANGE TONES OR STREAKS FROM MY BARE TAN?
Absolutely not. We have created a sugar-based solution to prevent any orange undertones. Other solutions on the market are derived from beet or beta-carotene (carrot extracts) creating an orange undertone and a funny scent. Bare Tan is unscented and will give you a golden-brown colour. In addition, our airbrush technicians are highly qualified and trained to avoid any streaks or unevenness.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE STANDARD AND THE EXPRESS SOLUTION?
The only difference is shower time. Both solutions have the ability to be as light or as dark as you desire, and the longevity of your tan is the same. With the Express Tan, it’s important to note that you will look quite a bit lighter after you shower, as the cosmetic bronzer is darker. With the Express Tan, we recommend waiting 2-4 hours before showering. With the Standard Tan, we recommend waiting 6-8 hours before showering.
DO YOU CUSTOMIZE THE SOLUTION?
Yes, we customize the solution based on your unique skin tone, and the shade of tan you desire. We will contour and highlight your natural lines, creating a slimming effect.
WILL I SMELL AFTER MY BARE TAN?
Absolutely not. Bare Tan Solution doesn’t have an unpleasant after scent. You can go back to work without being smelly.
I AM FAIR SKINNED, WILL MY BARE TAN STILL LOOK NATURAL?
Yes. We customize the solution to suit your skin tone. If it’s your first time tanning, we suggest selecting a lighter shade.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY BARE TAN?
We highly recommend that you shower, shave and exfoliate the day before or the day of your appointment. Oil based scrubs and soaps should be avoided. The day of your appointment it’s important to not wear any moisturiser on your skin. Please schedule waxing, manicures and pedicures before your appointment.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO MY APPOINTMENT?
It’s best to wear dark loose clothing, and thongs to your appointment. There is a cosmetic bronzer in the solution and it can rub off on clothing. It washes out of most materials, but it’s better to be on the safe side.
WHAT DO I WEAR DURING MY TREATMENT?
Women please feel free to wear whatever your comfortable in during your appointment (as little as you please), you can wear underwear, a disposable thong or go nude. Just keep unwanted tan lines in mind. (We have disposable thongs as well). Men, we ask that you wear boxers, briefs or swim trunks during your appointment.
HOW DO I MAINTAIN MY BARE TAN?
Avoid showering or sweating for 6-8 hours after your appointment. For Express Tan, wait 2-4 hours. After every shower, moisturize with a paraben-free moisturizer. Bare tan-extending moisturizer is recommended for best results. Keeping moisturized will not only extend the longevity of your tan, but your tan will also fade evenly. It’s best to avoid chlorinated pools, spas, and steam rooms.
IS BARE TAN SAFE TO USE DURING PREGNANCY?
First, congrats on your pregnancy! Bare Tan's organic solution is safe for moms-to-be, however we always recommend checking with your doctor.
