During the Winter months it can be difficult to achieve that Summer glow! The answer? A natural fake tan! On the mainstream market, fake tans tend to be chemical filled, with a horrible lingering smell. Here on Nourished Life we have beautiful, natural self tans that leave your skin looking sun kissed and bronzed! You don't need to expose your skin to harsh chemicals or dangerous UV rays to achieve that year round glow.
Which long lasting fake tans do I recommend?
TanOrganic Self Tan Lotion
My favourite fake tan? TanOrganic Self Tan Lotion! It's such a unique formulation that doesn't contain any ingredients that may leave your skin dry. This eco certified fake tan is made with hydrating Aloe Vera and comes in a liquid form which develops into a glowing, natural tan. My favourite feature of this product is that it's completely fragrance free! You won't be left with that distinct false tan smell that can linger on the skin. It's perfect for anyone with ultra sensitive skin and glides on beautifully. I recommend applying this fake tan with the TanOrganic Self Tanning Glove. Less is more with this product, so apply a few drops onto the glove before evenly distributing onto your body in circular motions. Your tan will develop over 6 to 8 hours.
To elongate the life of your tan, I love using the TanOrganic Moisturising Dry Oil. It's very hydrating and can be used as an oil over body moisturiser. It doesn't contain any water so it absorbs quickly to leave your 'tanned' skin looking lovely longer!
Eco Tan Winter Skin
If you prefer a gradual tanner that develops over 3-4 applications, the Eco Tan Winter Skin is the product for you! Using natural Cacao, this tanner offers a stunning chocolate-honey coloured glow, which works particularly well for lighter skin tones, as you can control how dark you want your tan. It applies non tinted and dries immediately, meaning you don't have to wait before getting dressed! No more stains on your clothing! To use, apply several light layers every few days.
Lavera Organic Fake Tan Lotion
For a quicker developing tan, the Lavera Organic Fake Tan Lotion takes only 3 hours to develop! It's Lavera's best selling product because it's streak free, great smelling and leaves skin looking naturally glowing! Formulated with Jojoba Oil, Sunflower Oil and Lavender, this tan works fast to help give you that bronzed Summer look. To use, apply as you would a body lotion, with light sweeping movements.
Eco Tan Face Tan Water
The Eco Tan Face Tan Water is such a fabulous product because it gradually tans your face, while replacing your regular toner and moisturiser! After only two applications, you'll notice a subtle bronze tone to your complexion! It's made with all natural and organic ingredients and has a water base. Made with a boost of Vitamin C, this face tan water brightens the skin and may even help combat ageing and acne. Amazing! To use, apply to dry skin using a cotton pad.
KORA Organics Gradual Self-Tanning Lotion
The Certified Organic KORA Organics Gradual Self-Tanning Lotion creates a subtle and healthy looking tan. It develops in 4-8 hours and is gentle enough to be applied to both the body and face. Ideal for anyone with dry skin, this fake tan is formulated using moisturising Argan Oil and Non Fruit Extract to hydrate the skin and provide a smooth and even coverage. To use, massage into the skin and allow 6-8 hours for the tan to develop. Reapply after 24 hours for a darker shade.
Which wash off fake tans do I recommend?
100% Pure All Over Glow
If you're looking for a fake tan that can wash away after one use, the 100% Pure All Over Glow is perfect. It's a translucent bronzing illuminiser that can be used on both the face and body. Full of antioxidants, vitamins and skin softening fruit oils, this liquid bronzer gives a sunkissed glow to the skin. It actually contains light reflective golden pigments that catch the light. It can be worn on bare skin, blended with your foundation or mixed into your daily moisturiser.
Dr. Hauschka Transluscent Bronzing Tint
This beautiful, seriously luxurious Bronzing Tint from Dr. Hauschka gives the most amazing summer glow and it is totally adjustable to suit every skin shade. It is a liquid mineral tint made from Witch Hazel, Olive Oil, Beeswax and natural earth minerals and you actually just mix a little into your favourite moisturiser to get the colour or shade that you want.
