Afraid of turning orange or going too dark? Self-tanning products have changed in the past few years, but common beliefs remain ingrained in people's minds. Between changes in formulation and the use of safe ingredients, today everyone can use a self-tanner safely! It's time to wring the neck at 7 common beliefs about self-tanners to finally make the move to a tanned skin, without the sun harmful effects!
False. A few years ago, some self-tanners had a strong smell. The ingredients that gave the skin its tan reacted on contact with the epidermis and tended to smell bad. Today, that's over, the textures are lighter and the smells more pleasant. Have you tried our On The Go Dark? It smells like almond ;)
False. Once again, this could be true in the past, especially because of the combination of DHA and erythrulose, two active ingredients derived from sugar that allowed your skin tanning. The erythrulose penetrates deeper under the epidermis in order to keep the tan longer, but erythrulose is also the reason why some products form spots and turn orange. That'so has chosen to remove erythrulose from its formulations and now combine DHA with food pigments to give you a golden tan without risk to your skin.
True. In any case, we strongly recommend it. An exfoliated skin, thus clean and clear, is the best way to make your tan last longer! You can use the scrub of your choice or our Tan Extender Scrub which is hydrating to avoid tightness or redness.
False. This is even the best time to apply it! The final color of That'so self-tanners appears within 3 to 4 hours after application, during which time contact with water should be avoided. By putting on your spray tan before going to bed, you let the color develop. In addition, That'so self-tanners, once dry, are transfer-free, so there is no risk of soiling your sheets.
False. Anyone is able to put on correctly their self-tanner! That'so sprays are super easy and quick to apply. By using a pigmented product, it's easy to see which areas are covered and which are not. Concerning foams, the textures are soft and stretch easily for an even application thanks to the tanning mitt!
False. At That'so, we use ingredients of natural origin, without risk to your health. All our products are dermatologically tested, paraben free, nickel free and vegan certified. Moreover, they do not penetrate further than the 2nd layer of your epidermis to fade, without stain, within 2 to 5 days depending on the intensity of your product.
