How to use

  • STEP 1:

    Use a loofah, exfoliating pad, or a body scrub to gently get rid of dead skin cells – the self tanning application kit will give you all the tools you need for a perfect tan.This will help make sure your tan lasts as long as possible. It’s also a good idea to paint your nails before applying your tanner – unless you like orange-y nails, that is. Give your feet a little moisturizing love beforehand to help make sure they don’t end up darker than your body. Finally, wait a day or two after shaving before using our self tanner. If you apply to newly shaved skin, all of your pores will show up as little orange dots.


  • STEP 2:

    When you’re ready, apply a thin layer of natural self tanner evenly over your legs, arms, torso, and face (avoid your eyes). Be careful when working on loose areas of skin (such as the elbows, feet, hands and knees). These areas are more absorbent, so it’s easy to overdo it and end up with dark spots. Wearing latex gloves can help you get a more even tan, and will prevent colored palms if you don't have a mitt. If you decide not to wear gloves, wash your hands immediately after tanning.


  • STEP 3:

    Your skin should reach your desired color within six hours. If it doesn’t, reapply the following day. We find that reapplying every 4-7 days is best for maintaining color, but do what works best for you. Enjoy your sunny, golden skin!

While it is not certified organic, our natural self tanner is made up of 81% water and certified organic ingredients, the other 19% are naturally derived ingredients and it does not include any toxic or harmful additives.

The active ingredient in our self tanner is DHA, a sugar derivative that gives the top layer of the skin a bronzed glow. It’s 100% natural and non-GMO. It’s backed up by a carefully selected combination of supporting ingredients, including organic aloe vera leaf juice (for luscious hydration), organic shea butter (for maximum moisturization), and organic pomegranate and cranberry extract (because who doesn’t love a bit of fruitiness in their self tanner?).

We can’t pinpoint the exact number of days – that will vary based on your application method, skin type, and how often you reapply. Many of our customers who have left self tanner reviews report that their tan lasted 5-7 days. We recommend doing a thorough exfoliation session with a dry brush or exfoliating glove before application for the longest possible tan.

For the face self tanner, the duration is a bit shorter. This is due largely to the faster turnover rate of the skin cells in your face. We tend to wash, touch, and generally mess with our faces more often than our bodies. Accordingly, the face self tanner tends to last about 3 to 4 days. Everyone's skin is different, though, so test it out for yourself to find the perfect tanning rythym.

Our self tanner basics bundle includes our self tanner and face self tanner lotions. It's the perfect place to start if you're looking to try self tanning from home! While we recommend using a tanning application mitt, our tanner can be applied with just your bare hands. Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly, though, when you're done applying. For best results, get yourself some application mitts!

We get this question a lot! Here's a helpful guide to applying self Tanner:

Step One: Do Everything Else

There are a lot of things that can mess with your self tanner if you don’t do them first. Painting your nails, coloring your hair, and shaving your legs can all remove the tanner before it has time to do its work, so make sure you get these tasks done beforehand.

…but not too close beforehand. Before I knew how to apply self tanner I didn’t realize that it’s not a great idea to shave right before you use it. I ended up with all of my pores showing up as little orange dots. Not very classy. I definitely recommend waiting several hours after you shave before applying any self tanner.

Step Two: Exfoliate

Self tanner has a way of sinking in to dry skin and creating weird little dark patches. You can make sure you skip this problem by exfoliating your skin before applying self tanner. Use a natural exfoliating scrub to slough off any flakes, paying special attention to your knees, elbows, ankles, and other rough areas. Use a gentle exfoliator to make sure your face is clear as well.

Step Three: Start From the Bottom

If you start by applying self tanner to your shoulders and torso, you may end up with some weird streaks when you bend over to do your legs. Make sure you get a nice, even tan by starting from the bottom and working up.

When you get to your face, use the application finger mitt for more consistent results. Put about a dime-sized amount of tanner on your finger mitt and massage gently into your skin. don't neglect your neck and around your hairline and ears!

Step Four: Use Circles

Squeeze a small amount of self tanner (about a teaspoon or so) into a clean hand. If you prefer, you can wear latex gloves. Work the lotion into your skin using a circular motion. I usually apply tanner to my legs, arms, torso, and face, being careful to avoid sensitive areas like my eyes.

Step Five: Tread Carefully

Be especially cautious when applying self tanner to areas where skin tends to be loose and dry. This includes elbows, knees, and the areas around your nose and top lip. The skin in these areas tends to pick up more color than the surrounding skin, making it easy to end up with dark spots.

It is always a good idea to moisturize these types of areas prior to applying self tanner so you get a more even look. It will also help ensure these areas don’t come out darker than everywhere else.

Step Six: Wash Up

If you decided not to use gloves to apply your self tanner, wash your hands immediately afterwards. This will keep you from ending up with off-color palms. If you end up with streaks or splotches, don’t fear – rub the area with half a lemon then buff it away with a damp towel. It’ll be like it never happened.

Step Seven: Repeat as Needed

You should reach your desired color within six hours. If you don’t, just reapply the following day. I usually end up reapplying every 4-7 days to keep my color consistent, but that number may vary based on what works best for you.

Step Eight: Don’t Forget Sunscreen 

Self tanner does not protect against UV radiation. If you plan to spend any time in the sun after using a self tanner, be sure to apply sunscreen.

Our body self tanner contains coconut oil and is a bit heavier than our face formula. If you're prone to breakouts, we recommend using the face self tanner on that beautiful visage rather than the body. It's non-comegenic and won't cause you any breakouts! If you've got easy-going skin, though, the body self tanner will work perfectly fine on your face.

Our self tanner can provide great color, but it won’t protect you from the sun as it does not contain SPF ingredients. Make sure to keep up with your sunscreen routine no matter how often you use our tanner.

Absolutely. Self tanning is a much safer alternative to spending time in the sun or in tanning beds. Exposure to UVA and UVB radiation can cause premature aging, including age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, and more. With enough time it can leave your skin looking tough and leathery. And don’t even get us started on the cancer risk… No way around it – self tanning with a natural tanner is the best way to go.

Our self tanner uses all-natural ingredients that are gentle on sensitive skin. However, with any new product, it’s always a good idea to do a test patch before using it on larger areas. Take a look through our self tanner reviews to find out how other customers with sensitive skin reacted – the response has been overwhelmingly positive.

As often as needed! Keep an eye on your tan, and when it starts to fade go ahead and reapply. Most customers find that their tan lasts about 7 days before fading, but if you notice a difference sooner, there’s no reason not to reapply.

Take the time to apply it right – exfoliate first, be generous with the amount you use, and use a self tanning mitt. We find that we can extend the life of our tan by sticking to warm (not hot) showers and by moisturizing daily.

We sure do! Find out more on our wholesale info page or drop us a line at wholesale@beautybyearth.com and we’ll get you taken care of.
