The MineTan Commandments

When applying your MineTan, there are several steps that you should follow for achieving the perfect tan! Therefore, follow these MineTan Commandments to look fantastic in your new tan:

1. Prepare Your Skin
Exfoliate your skin a minimum of 4 hours prior to applying MineTan. Once your old skin cells have been brushed away, MineTan can successfully be applied evenly across your skin, and will help your tan fade evenly to ensure you don’t have the dreaded tan patches!

2. Shave Before Application
Shave your legs at least 24 hours prior to applying MineTan because shaving can lead to sensitive skin.

3. Don’t Rush into a Tan
Some tanners opt to easing gradually into their new tan, such as using our MineTan 3 in 1 Gradual Tan. Using this tan and moisturising solution enables your MineTan glow to build up after just a few days of continual application. Just apply it as you would a body moisturising product. Then there’s some tanners that love an instant faux glow, where our MineTan 1 Hour Express tans are a girl’s best friend!

4. Know the Proper Formulas
Know your MineTan! Our range has three tanning bases: choose from our Dark Ash, Violet and Green based solutions but check first which each solution type works it’s best with which skin types.

5. Consider the Tan Colour
When selecting a MineTan colour base, pay careful attention to the product label to determine how it suits your personal skin tone. It is always useful if you tan a small patch on the back of your hand the day prior to using a new MineTan colour on our skin, to gauge how the colour solution works with your skin type. This way, you can preview your results before committing to a whole body of tan!

6. Use a Mitt for Application
Apply MineTan with the right tools from our MineTan Face & Body collection will ensure a smooth canvas pre-tan, and an even, flawless result post-tan. Every tanner is hoping for that!

7. Follow a Method When Applying
When applying MineTan, use a method to make sure that you properly cover all areas of your body. Start with your larger extremities such as your arms, back and stomach, and using the leftover tan on your mitt, then proceed to areas such as the neck, knees, elbows and feet.

8. Don’t Forget the Bronzer
You can achieve a light glow on your face with our Express Tan solution – do this after using your tanning mitt which will have a small amount of remaining solution on it after tanning your body. As an alternative, find your perfect match with our Perfect Match Bronzers! It can be used to contour your cheekbones, nose, collarbones and to define and enhance your tan (abs, shines, upper arms, chest).

9. Keep Your Tan for Longer
After applying your MineTan, moisturise your skin on a daily basis to prolong the colour stay and flawless finish. Once the tan starts to fade in 4 to 5 days, exfoliate your skin every 3 days to ensure that it fades away evenly.

10. Own It
A perfect tan can enhance your glow, attitude and confidence, so wear it and own it with MineTan!
