Top tips for waxing and tanning to get your body Summer ready

As we start to think about breaking out the skirts and shorts, our hair removal and tanning treatments become very popular. So you get the best from the treatments, we've put together 9 tips ...

For best results when waxing:

  1. Exfoliate the skin a day or two before, 
  2. Come to the appointment with no products on your skin,
  3. Keep your skin hydrated and exfoliated afterwards to avoid ingrown hairs and
  4. Have at least a 24 hour gap after hair removal before tanning.
For best results when tanning:
  1. Exfoliate with a glove 24 hours prior to tanning, paying extra attention to the knees, elbows, decolletage and any other dry areas. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells as well as old tan and any other debris that can interfere with your new tan giving an even coverage when being applied.
  2. Apply a small amount of gentle moisturiser to dryer skin on elbows, feet, hands and knees to act as a barrier and protect those areas from looking unnaturally dark. On other areas, keep the skin clean and dry with no moisturisers, perfumes or deodorants.
  3. Allow your tan to dry before getting dressed afterwards and even then, choose loose, dark clothing during the time your tan is developing. Avoiding getting your tan wet before it's developed will also improve the evenness of your tan. That includes exercise, sweating and being exposed to steamy environments.
  4. If applying the tan yourself, try a mitt to ensure that tan is evenly distributed and the palms of your hands will be protected. Use long circular strokes and use your mitt to buff out build-up and blend it into skin. 
  5. Afterwards, keep your skin moisturised and hydrated. We recommend a moisturising gradual tanner to keep and build the tan.

We're very excited to have a new range of tanning products in store, Byron Bay Bronze, which uses natural, organic and sustainably sourced ingredients which are cruelty free while still giving you a beautiful bronzed look.
