Faux Tanning with Shop Skincare

A fabulous faux glow is nothing without the night prep and after care!

When you’re trying to find the right tanning routine for you, there’s a number of things you’re going to want to consider. Do you want an instant tan? Or one that develops overnight? Or do you want a gradual fake tan, that’ll keep you bronzed without looking obvious? Or are you looking for something mega-dark to keep your tan as deep as possible? Because lets face it – Even when the sun’s not shining, we still want a natural, golden glow.

Fake it, til you make it with our fool-proof faux tanning rules.


Having gorgeous, clean skin is great but not if there’s lots of dead skin cells determined to cling onto it. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells on the surface of your skin, unclogs your pores and prevents uneven skin tone. All of which are of the upmost importance when self-tanning. Exfoliate in the shower or bath by using Australian Bodycare’s Exfoliating Body Scrub. This gentle body scrub is the perfect way to regularly polish away dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling smooth, refreshed and ready for your faux tan time!


Our bestseller oil, the ultimate factor in making a golden glow last for days. Prepare the skin for a tan base by applying all over the body the day before your fake tanning plans come into motion. This should promote a more even coverage that will last longer. Pay real good attention to the hands, elbows and knees. You’ll want to avoid streaks and dryness by prepping the skin with A’kin’s Rosehip Oil.


This ultra light-weight gradual tanning mist can be applied to the whole body in less than 60 seconds! Perfect for fuss-free tanning, either at home or on-the-go, it contains nourishing ingredients which allow for a streak free finish. The 360° spray applicator means that you can even reach your back to achieve a flawless tan from top to toe. UTAN & Tone is the essential must have in our faux tanning routine for fuss free application without the risk of streaks and an orangey glow.
