We are overwhelmed with the amount of interest in the Sahara Soul Tanning foam lately so we thought this would be the perfect time to answer all of your questions!
THE TAN SAYS IT DOES ALL COLOURS SO WILL THE TAN BE DARK ENOUGH FOR ME?
The answer to this question is absolutely! The tanning foam was designed to give a beautiful dark, chocolate rich tan. So why does it say three shades? Our tan has been specifically created to match all colour skin tones and shades, you will find a colour chart on the back of the bottle designed to guide you on how long to leave the tan on for.
WHAT COLOUR BASE IS THE TAN?
Over the last 12 months of extensive research we have found this is a very popular question/concern from most self tan users. Rather then choosing a colour base specific to one type of skin tone (for example, green or red based) we have chosen a chocolate brown tone. This is absolutely beautiful for ALL skin tones as it results in a bronzed glowing tan.Â
HOW LONG WILL MY TAN LAST/ HOW TO MAINTAIN IT?
Sahara Soul is designed to last anywhere between 6-10 days. The life of our tan really depends on how well you look after your skin as everybody is different. The most important steps to getting the longest life out of your tan is to moisturise daily and stay hydrated.
IS IT STREAKY?
Absolutely not! We have created our brand priding ourselves on product quality, meaning that we have added ingredients likeÂ coconut oil, Vitamins B, C, E, Aloe vera and many more to ensure the tan goes on smoothly and drys evenly and streak free.
WHAT ARE SOME TIPS ON HOW TO APPLY/SHOULD I TAN MY FACE?
Shower and exfoliate prior to tanning so you are working with clean dry skin. Apply a small amount of moisturiser to your hands and feet paying particular attention to your ankles wrists and elbows if needed. Pump a small amount of mousse onto your Sahara Soul Luxe Tanning Mitt. Using circular motions, apply mousse directly to your body, blending as you go to ensure even coverage. The coconut oil in our tan helps with spread as it goes on incredible softly. Once you have completed your body use what excess tan is left on the mitt and lightly brush over your face. Allow 1-2 minutes to dry and apply clothing.
CAN I GO SWIMMING AFTER APPLYING MY TAN?
Once you have let your tan develop to the desired colour advised by the colour chart you are able to wash off the excess. After you have done this you are able to conduct activities like normal! However chlorine and salt water will cause your tan to fade quicker then normal.
CAN I TAN WHILE IM PREGNANT/BREASTFEEDING?
We have developed the tanning foam with very high quality natural ingredients so our answer is yes. However we always recommend seeking approval by your doctor as everybody is different. If you are tanning while breastfeeding we recommend avoiding the nipple area and applying the tan everywhere else.
CAN I TAN WEEKLY?
You most definitely can tan weekly, most of the team here at Sahara Soul tan every week. It is completely personal preference and you should tan as you desire.
HOW LONG SHOULD I LEAVE THE TAN ON FOR THE BEST COLOUR?
We recommend the following: Light- 2-4 hours, Medium- 4-6 hours, Dark 6-8 hours, Ultra dark- Apply tan and reapply a second coat for maximum colour depth. We find that anywhere between the 5-8 hours mark is ideal for a natural looking tan.
