Achieving the perfect sun-kissed glow is a desire shared by most of us, but it's essential to cater your self-tanning routine to your unique skin tone for a natural, flawless result. Our range of Australian-made self tanning solutions cater for every skin tone, and we are big on ensuring that no matter your skin tone, you can achieve the glow you want!
In this blog, we'll explore the secrets to achieving the ideal tan based on your skin tone, all while incorporating Luna Bronze's top products into your self-tanning routine. So let's unlock the perfect tan, one shade at a time...
Understanding Your Skin Tone
Before we delve into how to utilise our range of Luna Bronze tanning products effectively, it's crucial to understand your skin tone. Skin tones typically fall into three categories: fair, medium, and dark. Each category requires a different approach when it comes to self-tanning.
Fair Skin Tones
Fair-skinned individuals often fear that self-tanners will result in an unnatural contrast, but with the right approach, achieving a beautiful sunless tan is within reach. Glow Gradual Tanning Moisturiser is an ideal choice for fair skin tones. This daily moisturiser not only gradually darkens your skin but also provides essential hydration. The key is selecting a shade that's just a shade or two deeper than your natural complexion, ensuring a subtle and seamless glow.
Application Tips for Fair Skin
- Begin with proper exfoliation using an Exfoliating Mitt. This step removes dead skin cells and ensures an even tan application.
- Apply the gradual lotion evenly, making sure to blend carefully around your ankles, knees, and elbows.
- Illume Face Tanning Water is perfect for your face tan, offering a subtle glow without clogging pores.
- Maintain your glow by applying both Glow Gradual Tanning Moisturiser and Illume Tanning Water every other day.
Medium Skin Tones
Medium skin tones have the advantage of adapting to a broader range of self-tanning shades. Eclipse Tanning Mousse is the go-to product for individuals with medium skin tones. This lightweight mousse glides on effortlessly, offering a radiant, natural-looking tan. It contains nourishing ingredients like coconut oil and jojoba oil, ensuring your skin remains healthy and hydrated. For medium skin tones, opt for a self-tanner shade that complements your existing skin tone, providing a healthy bronzed finish.
Application Tips for Medium Skin
- Pre-tan preparation remains crucial, starting with exfoliation using an Exfoliating Mitt.
- Use the tanning mitt for an even application, taking your time to achieve a seamless tan and then apply a small amount of product to your knees, elbows, wrists and tops of hands
- Keep your self tan results fresh by applying lotion every day and one of our best tanning tips is to apply Glow Gradual Tanning Moisturiser every other day to extend the life of your tan.
Dark or Deep Skin Tones
Individuals with darker skin tones can achieve a subtle bronzing effect by using a deeper self-tanner shade. Total Eclipse Tanning Mousse in a deeper shade ideal for dark skin tones, or Solar Eclipse Clear Mousse is an ideal way to give the skin a hydrated, warm tan result. Like the medium skin routine, exfoliation is essential to create a smooth canvas for the self-tanner.
Application Tips for Dark Skin
- Follow the same pre-tan preparation steps, beginning with exfoliation.
- Ensure an even application using a tanning mitt and blending brush for a flawless end result.
- For dark skin tones, opt for two coats.
- Moisturise consistently to keep your skin looking its best.
