An Instant Sun-Kissed Look

Get a sun-kissed glow without skin damage with our guide to sunless tanning.

Unless you live under a rock, we’re sure you’re aware of the dangers of sun exposure. While we all love the sun, prolonged exposure to UVA and UVB rays can cause nasty ramifications, including skin cancer, wrinkles, brown spots, and dehydration.

As good as you may look rocking a deep tan, tanning is not good for you. As lady luck would have it, those with milky-white complexions (think Nicole Kidman or Cate Blanchette) are at an even greater risk of the effects of sun exposure. 

The good news is that there is a safer way to get your glow on while preserving the health of your skin.

It’s time to rely on sun in a bottle.

Caribbeantan professional self-tan range is a safe, effective way of keeping your skin tone bronzed year-round. Best of all, it won’t leave you looking like a cheese puff! 

So, you’re desperate to become a bronzed goddess, but you have no idea how to apply self-tanner. We’ll walk you through the entire self-tanning procedure step by step, with a few Caribbeantan self-tanning hints thrown in for good measure. Even if you are a self-tanning novice, you’ll be self-tanning like a pro in no time and look like you’ve spent a week on Bora Bora beach (instead of behind your office desk!).

Firstly, identify your skin-tone

Skin type A: This is for people with a naturally fair complexion and who usually burn easily when they go in the sun.

Skin type B: This is for people with a medium complexion and who only burn sometimes when exposed to the sun’s rays. 

Skin type C: This is for people with a naturally dark complexion who rarely burn when exposed to the sun. 

Secondly, Prep Your Skin

A natural-looking golden glow takes a little preparation. This means shaving, using deplilatory creams, or waxing beforehand and exfoliating your skin with Caribbeantan’s luxurious Cinnamon & Coconut Skin Smoothing Exfolia at least six hours before your self-tan application. 

Lastly, Choose The Right Product

Next, you must choose the self-tanner that works best for you. You can choose a quick tanner, which is ideal for when you’re in a hurry and want to look tanned immediately. Or a progressive tanner. This is ideal if you’re a little hesitant and prefer to build your tan gradually over a few hours.

When tanning for a last-minute event, we recommend Caribbeantan’s Tan In A Can Instant or Tanning Spritzer.

Both are easy to apply, take just a few hours to develop, and result in a natural-looking tan lasting up to 10 days.

Tan In A Can: Spray onto your body and rub in circular motions using the Caribbeantan Tan Application Mitt and watch as your skin colour enhances with every spray. This self-tan is easily buildable for a more intense tan, nourishes the skin, and provides an all-over tan that’s instantly visible and dries in minutes. 

Tanning Spritzer: Spritz onto your body and use your tanning mitt to rub the tint in circular motions. One spritz instantly tints the skin, leaving you with a natural tan and an added glow thanks to its Aloe Ferox Gel-infused formula. A quick spritz tans you immediately and dries within 5 minutes. The tan intensity will develop over the next 8-12 hours. 

Other Caribbeantan products include the Instant Body Bronzer Lotion and the Tinted Body Bronzer Shimmer Cream

Instant Body Bronzer Lotion:  The Instant Body Bronzer Lotion can also be used to maintain your tan in between your self-tanning sessions. 

Tinted Body Bronzer Shimmer Cream: For an added glow, apply the Caribbeantan Tinted Body Bronzer Shimmer Cream, which has just the right amount of micro sparkles to turn you into a golden goddess. 

Both bronzers wash off after a shower, making them ideal for enhancing the initial colour of your skin before a special event.
