How to get the Best Results using TheSuperfoodTan

The Next Evolution in Self-Tanning is here. No Sunbathing required!

It works with your skin to create a real tan without the need for Sun. It's a safe natural vegan lotion made with medicinal ingredients recognised and used for centuries in Ancient Medicine.

This world first blend of ingredients nourish your skin and boost it's health. The healthier your skin, the better it can handle the extremes of daily life. It makes sense right, this philosophy has been at the core of designing TheSuperfoodTan. 

The fact is, your skin is uniquely and entirely different to the everyone else, you know this right? It's impossible for a scientist in a lab to colour match every individual unique skin colour, you know this too, yes? This is why those "chemical-paint-in-a-bottle" fake tan products look like a FAKE TAN...it's just not your colour and it's obvious to everyone that it's a fake tan. Even the best fake tan still looks like a fake tan...right? we know you're smart enough to know this. Stop being fed the fake stuff. You deserve much better.

TheSuperfoodTan does not contain any tan in its lotion instead, with the wonderfully nourishing blend of ingredients we've worked out your skin is the best at producing its own tan...no scientist or fake tan can ever match it. TheSuperfoodTan nourishes your skin, your skin produces your own genuine tan and it is entirely natural in colour every time. It's simply the best way to look fantastic you'd be bonkers to do it any other way.

HOW TO USE:
First, you need to work out how your skin works.

TheSuperfoodTan works with your skin and we've all agreed everyone has uniquely different skin. What this means to you? If you tan easily, no problem however if you struggle to tan, you'll find it may take more than one coat to wake up your skin...and that's ok. 

Only apply lotion as 1 fine layer 8 to 24 hrs apart to give your skin a chance to work. 

We recommend you consider a 2 stage approach quite common to the fitness industry, "Load & Maintain"...first we'll load the skin with those essential ingredients that boost health and help your skin produce its own tan, then to enjoy ongoing perfect colour, we'll maintain typically once a week. Here's what a typical tan regime may look like:

LOADING STAGE
1. Day 1 - Apply a fine coat. Only a fine coat, a 5mm drop will usually cover your whole forearm. Be patient, you're excited to see results...so are we. 
2. Day 2 - If you like your colour, great...next application may be in a few days. If however you feel your skin needs more of boost, Apply another fine coat. Allow your skin time to produce results of 8 to 24 hours
3. Day 3 - Same as Day 2.

MAINTAIN
Weekly - most people prefer to re-apply weekly, for some this is 7 days for others that may be 5 days. Your choice. Others prefer a fine coat every 3 or 4 days to maintain a super natural look at all times. Once you work out your skin, you'll know what works best for you.

TIPS for BEST RESULTS
1. DON'T use a mitt, this is not a fake tan product, a mitt is like a sledge hammer would be to busting a pimple...totally the wrong way...like a fake tan is the wrong way.
2. Use a rubber nitrile glove or just bare hands and wash frequently during application. For example, apply on legs, then wash hands...then apply upper body and wash again.
3. Best to remove dead skin thoroughly as this will simply prevent lotion absorbing by blocking access into skin
4. Remove any unwanted hair before hand
5. If you want to do armpits, PLEASE completely wash off all Anti-perspirant and Deodorant, the Blackberry & Raspberry will bind to these products and you'll end up with purple armpits...please don't be that person.
6. For contoured or folding skin around knees, elbows, nostrils & other areas, you may wish to apply an even finer coat or use moisten these areas of skin prior to applying. This will help you obtain a fine manageable tan
7. TheSuperfoodTan is not a FAKE TAN and as such it will achieve a level of colour your skin can produce without sunbathing. The maximum darkness you will achieve with this lotion is medium-dark as best achieved by your skin. It's simply not possible to turn a fair person ultra dark. If you want the ultra-dark fake stuff...there's loads of fake tan chemical paint for you out there. This not your product.
