8 benefits of sunless tanning
Having a healthy bronze gives you confidence, but risking your health for tanned skin is not necessarily a good trade-off. Sunless tanning gives your skin a sun-kissed, hydrated look without the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays, but you should be able to do it without using harsh chemicals on your skin (which could be just as bad as the sun). The benefits of a beautiful sunless tan with natural ingredients go far beyond a sun-kissed glow.
Not only is getting a sunburn painful, but it’s extremely dangerous. Baking your skin in the sun too long once every two years, triples your risk of melanoma skin cancer. Sunless tanning is much safer – enjoy a nice tan without the harmful radiation from the sun.
Reduce signs of aging
Skin that has been exposed to the sun begins to age more quickly. A study from the medical journal Clinical, Cosmetic And Investigational Dermatology, found that the sun is responsible for up to 80% of aging and wrinkles in women. The self-tanning products from The Tan Can have a nourishing formula that feeds your skin with vitamins and antioxidants. The hydrating and nourishing features eliminate the threat of speeding up the aging process.
Who wants to try to catch every ray of sunshine or make an appointment each time it’s time for a tan refresh? With self-tanning products, you’ll have a natural tan when you want it. Weekend getaway? Birthday bash? Or just prepping for the summer? Get your tan quicker with The Tan Can product line.
If you’ve ever experienced the painfulness of a sunburn, you know there is no tan phase – your skin goes straight to red. Likewise, a one-size-fits-all tanning machine doesn’t allow you to personalize the tone to your liking. With self-tanning, you can apply more or less often to achieve the skin tone you desire.
Body is instantly thinner
A bronzed tan gives your body a sculpted, toned appearance. Create a shadow in all the right places with self-tanning, giving you an instantly slimmer look and a boost of confidence.
Easy to maintain
Self-tanning is on your time – rainy days, winter months – so there’s no dependency on nature or a tanning boutique. Moisturize your skin every day, or whenever you choose, to keep a lasting bronze year-round.
No pale winters
With self-tanning, you don’t have to go through the winter white phase when the sun disappears. While everyone else is pulling out the contouring tools to try to keep a summer glow, you can massage the color and hydration back into your skin.
Looking like a million bucks doesn’t have to cost it! The Tan Can self-tanning products help you keep a healthy tan without breaking the bank. No trips to Hawaii needed (although we’re definitely not against a tropical escape!). Here’s how you can keep your summer bronze for less than the cost of a night out.
The Tan Can products are nourishing scrubs, lotions and tanners that keep your skin healthy and tanned in an easy applicable way. Enjoy the lasting results and hydrated bronze that come with a great self-tan.
glow all winter long
Keeping your skin hydrated and bronzed during the winter months can be a challenge. The cold temperatures and harsh wind can pull the moisture out of your skin, leaving it itchy and irritated. On top of that, your desire to stay snuggled up on the couch sipping hot cocoa and binging on the latest Netflix craze creates a serious tan deficit. Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean it’s time to give up your healthy glow! Follow our easy steps to extending your self-tanner and when spring finally hits, you won’t look like Frosty the Snowman coming out of hibernation.
Wax and Exfoliate
Self-tanner needs to be applied to clean, smooth skin, so before you start lathering on your summer color, wax or shave. Waiting until after you apply your tanner to wax or shave will make you lose your bronze faster. Once you’ve shaved, exfoliate to remove any dead skin cells, allowing the sunless tanner to absorb directly into your skin. The Tan Can Exfoliating Body Scrub will prep your skin for a long-lasting sunless tan.
Avoid the Showering
Once you’ve applied Tan Can's self-tanner, Bikini Attitude, you’ll want to avoid the gym or your next showers for seven to eight hours. If you shower or sweat too soon, the self-tanner will fade much faster. While you’re at it, steer clear of the sauna or indoor swimming pool for three to five days after application. Since you’re getting your bronze on in the winter months, you don’t have to worry about skipping beach day – you’ll be golden when it’s time to hit the sand.
Hydrate and Moisturize
Prolong your self-tanner by keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized. Your skin longs for moisture, especially during the winter months, so use a moisturizing body wash (like this one that keeps your tan going strong for seven to 10 days!). Lotion and body oils are great ways to sustain healthy skin as well but don’t forget to keep your water bottle nearby. H2O works wonders for your skin!
Be Gentle With Your Skin
Ok, you still have to live life even with a gorgeous tan, we get it. Just be gentle about it! Avoid harsh chemicals and products that could easily steal your tan, like facial masks, maximum strength acne products, facial toners, strong makeup removers, waxing strips or products with alcohol.
Get a feel for how long your self-tanner lasts when you’re just doing normal things and build a reapplication process based on when your bronze starts to fade. Some parts of your body may fade faster than others, so it’s ok to spot treat if needed, just be cautious about your application so you avoid looking like a spotted leopard. Lightly exfoliate any splotchy or dark spots and apply one, thin coat of self-tanner.
While these steps will help you keep your sunless tan longer, the first (and most important) step is to choose a quality self-tanner. What you put on your skin can affect your health, so choosing a product that’s packed with vitamins and free of all chemicals and parabens gives you a worry-free, healthy glow.
THE TAN CAN BREAKDOWN
While many of The Tan Can’s customers use our products both separately and all together in their everyday skin regimes, we wanted to take the time to explain what each product’s role is.
Let’s start with the Body Scrub:
This scrub, unlike others, uses apricot seeds in replacement of microbeads that harm the environment and are synthetic. The aloe vera base moisturizes your skin after the apricot seeds scrub away any dead cells or dry patches, leaving your skin polished and smooth. The Tan Can recommends using this scrub prior to using the Bikini Attitude Sunless Tanner to ensure even results. The Body Scrub also doubles as an after-scrub, for when you want to remove your old tan.
Next, The Tan Can’s Body Butter:
Our Body Butter is our second best selling product, by both men and women! It’s light and refreshing scent is both appealing and not overwhelming. Two key ingredients are hydrating aloe vera and anti-aging hyaluronic acid- a combo that both prevents and fixes fine lines and wrinkles. The Tan Can suggests using this butter in both everyday regimes as well as for maintaining your sunless tan.
Now, our infamous Bikini Attitude:
Our sunless tanning lotion, also available in a spray, is notorious for being far different from other products. The Tan Can’s Bikini Attitude is free of those unwanted post-tanning lotion scents and harsh chemicals that can harm your skin. The results given are natural, buildable, and streak-free. While this is our best selling product, our other products work hand in hand to make sure the Bikini Attitude lasts as long as possible.
Lastly, our Body Wash and Shave Gel:
Our Body Wash is gentle, cleansing, and can double as shave gel. The Tan Can suggests using this product both for everyday cleansing, as well as to prolong your tan. Most body washes contain harsh chemicals that can strip your skin of your sunless tan you worked hard to prep for, The Tan Can’s Body Wash is chemical-free and works to make your tan last as long as possible.
why sunless tanning
The Tan Can knows how big of a difference a glow can make on not only your appearance, but more importantly your confidence. As warm weather is returning, we would like to remind everyone the importance and benefits of sunless tanning and skincare.
- Zero UV Rays
Ultraviolet rays from the sun can not only damage your eyes but also damage your skin. Sunblock is a must-have when the sun is out to prevent aging, fine lines, and sun spots. Your skin only regenerates 7-10 years, so let sunless tanning products help you get the tan you want to achieve without harming your body.
- Hyaluronic Acid
The Tan Can’s sunless tanning products contain Hyaluronic Acid, which helps in anti-aging and preserving your skin’s elasticity. Hyaluronic Acid is naturally found in the body and rarely incorporated into popular skincare lines. It has a high capacity for holding water, therefore allowing your skin to soak up your moisturizer at a higher level. A higher level of moisture helps your tan last longer and reduces the looks of fine lines and wrinkles, while preventing new ones from forming!
- Reduced Risk of Skin Cancer
40-50% of people who live up to the age of 65 will encounter one occurrence of skin cancer. With the help of sunscreen, sunless tanning, and being aware of your chances, these statistics can be prevented while still maintaining your physical appearance.
- Customized Color
The Tan Can’s Bikini Attitude Sunless Tanning spray and lotion allow you to reapply until your desired shade is achieved. Not only are our products buildable, but they also develop a very natural shade, making it almost impossible to distinguish whether or not your glow is faux!
