Spray Tanning 101: What you need to know

Eco Tan is Australia’s first certified organic professional tanning solution for face and body and combines a luxurious blend of aloe vera and grape skin extract to instantly nourish and replenish dry skin. Free from synthetic food dyes, this solution uses natural cacao to deliver the most beautiful golden bronze tan every time.  Eco Tan:

  • contains an anti-cellulite ingredient and a free-radical scavenger to bring you the best possible treatment to your skin
  • continues to develop in to a deep tan the longer it is left on, choose between a 2-6 hour wash-off time

BEFORE YOUR SPRAY TAN SESSION
The most important thing before getting a spray tan is to exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate. Exfoliating before a spray tan will greatly improve the quality of your tan and will ensure that the spray tanning solution applies evenly.
Pay particular attention to the dry areas of your body like your elbows and knees as well as the ankles and your feet. If your feet and toes are extra dry you can apply a little moisturiser to these areas just before your spray tan and this will stop a lot of the spray tan solution sticking to all the dry skin and making them look much darker.
Exfoliating will also make your tan last longer and fade more evenly as it removes any excess dead skin cells and leaves you with soft, fresh skin.
I recommend using the Extreme Exfoliant Glove and Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub to prepare the skin prior to tanning for best results.
Extra spray tan tip: Shaving is best done between 8 and 24 hours prior to your spray tan and waxing must be done at least 24 hours prior.

TO YOUR SPRAY TAN SESSION
Do not wear any moisturiser or deodorant, make-up or perfume to your spray tanning session.
The first hour is the most crucial because this is when most of the tan develops so our garments are the perfect solution for you.
Whilst your tan is developing avoid any activity that would cause sweating as this could result in lines and uneven tanning.

AFTER SPRAY TAN CARE AND MAINTENANCE
When you are ready to shower, wash with a mild moisturising shower gel, preferably SLS free. Normal soaps can often be a little harsh and strip the skin and in doing so remove your tan a lot quicker. I recommend using Eco Tan’s Foaming Body Wash or Coconut & Mint Body Wash, available from Slow Beauty Eco Salon. Always pat your skin dry, do not rub the skin.
The most important thing after a spray tan is to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. This will greatly improve the life and the look of your spray tan. I recommend Eco Tan’s Coconut Body Milk to extend the life of your tan.
Extra spray tan tip: Swimming in chlorinated pools may contribute to your spray tan fading quicker than normal.

Do you have a spray tan booked soon? Because your tan will develop rapidly during the first hour, it is crucial to avoid any contact with moisture and avoid any activity that would cause sweating which could result in lines and uneven tanning. Slow Beauty would like to offer clients the option to wear comfortable and effortless Kaf.Tanned Tanning & Fashion Apparel. Kaf.Tanned garments will ensure that your tan remains as flawless as possible until you shower. Email connect@slowbeauty.com.au today to place your order!

Coming up in 2016…

I have many exciting things planned for Beauty By Natalie in 2016!

NEW Facial Enhancements

LED

Recently I was the winner of an industry competition and am the proud owner of a brand new BioTherapeutic Micro! This amazing device is the latest in hand held professional technology that achieves ultrasonic exfoliation using advanced patented technology. The BT Micro ultrasonic works by using a combination of high speed oscillations and micro-current to deep cleanse, exfoliate and enhance product penetration. When used in a High Powered Facial, it leaves the skin smooth, fresh and perfectly prepared for maximum product absorption. I will also be introducing LED to the Facial Enhancements Menu. LED Light Therapy uses Light-Emitting Diode technology to activate and promote collagen production and increase the rate of skin cell renewal. This treatment will also help minimise acne while soothing the skin, and reducing redness and inflammation.

Sugaring Packages & NEW VIP Programme

Full Circle of Skin Conditioning

To assist my Sugaring clients to get the best possible results from their sugaring, I have developed a new and exciting programme called the Fundamental Skin Lifestyle. The Fundamental Skin Lifestyle is the implementation of the Full Circle of Skin Conditioning either at-home or in-salon. Fundamental Skin Lifestyle members will automatically join the exclusive VIP Customer Rewards Programme which entitles you to every 10th treatment completely free!

Tanning

Eco Tan

Recently I had my first spray-tan and immediately fell in love, and so I’ve decided to bring it to you! Beauty By Natalie will soon offer Eco Tan Spray Tans and tanning products, as well as their sunscreens and deodorants.

Tea Menu Update & NEW Tea Retail

I am Beauty Card

As much as I love the Higher Living teas, I have been enamoured with a tea of a different kind. I have stumbled upon an Australian company who produces organic herbal infusions for the body, mind and spirit. These beautiful loose-leaf blends are by their very nature better for the environment; they nourish your body, empower your mind and uplift your spirit with each sip.

I am excited to be bringing my clients these amazing products in 2016 and look forward to sharing them with you very soon!
