Bronzers, pull out your beach towels and SPF, summer is around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited! Summer IOP (in our opinion - for anyone other than gen z’s) is the best time of year. As many of us do, we’re already planning our summer wardrobes for the warmer season and if you’re like us, our skin hasn’t seen the light of day in MONTHS, so we’re preparing for our summer skin routine too! White, bright clothing will be on high rotation this season, paired with a beautiful summer tan (from the bottle of course), which is why we want to give you the best self tan tips to avoid any self tan transfer onto any of your fresh white clothing.
Coming from us, who know a thing or two about self tanning, there is quite literally nothing worse than applying a fresh fake tan, for it to then transfer onto all of our favourite clothing, sheets and towels (we’re wiping a tear away thinking about this). It’s 2023, and we’re over the hassle of having to wash and scrub all these fake tan marks off all of our clothing, Which is why we want to introduce you to our fake tan essentials - our clear self tanners, as they come with ZERO transfer and are also sweat-proof, so you can wear your favourite white outfit without any of the self tan transfer stress (your white clothes will be cheering rn)!
What is a clear self tanner and why wear it?
The new generation of fake tan is CLEAR! If you think back to all the original fake tans, (our beautiful bronzed tanning mousses included), the tanning mousse included a bronzey colour guide aimed to help the user see exactly where they’re applying their self tan on the body. This eliminated a lot of fake tan fails and streaks that could come with tanning, as you could see when you missed a spot and could easily use a self tanning mitt to buff out those areas. As self tan aficionados would know, this brown bronzer washes off in the shower, however any remaining residue ran the risk of transferring onto all of your favourite white clothing. 🥲 Which is how clear self tanners came into the Lunaverse!
Clear self tanners are the best new way to achieve a summer tan. A clear tanner contains no colour guide, which means it applies onto the skin completely clear, and the DHA (naturally derived tanning active) gradually develops a tan over time, leaving you in control to develop your own glow! Different to brown tanning foams, clear tanning products only develop when applied directly to the skin, and even if a bit of clear mousse gets on any of your fave personal items, the tan will not develop (hallelujah)! Clear self tanners come with ZERO mess, ZERO transfer and are totally sweat-proof, so they will not come off onto any of your favourite white clothing, sheets or towels 🙌🏼
So we know the best fake tan to stick to for summer!
