Australis Tanning products are the perfect start to your beauty routine. Australis introduces a new generation in tanning – Skin Finishing! We provide a Chocolate base mousse which is perfect for fair skin and a Purple base mousse for olive skin – choose the ideal base to suit your skin tone! The range also includes a unique micro-sponge mitt for your face and body!

1. Remove Unwanted Hair A Few Days Prior.

Nothing can ruin your fake tan more than regrowth or ingrown hairs so if you want to remove unwanted body hair, do it a few days before. Shaving can increase the skins sensitivity and doing it directly before can cause the tan to apply unevenly so one to two days before is best. If you’re someone who prefers waxing than stick with a two to three day gap as it can open up the pores meaning fake tan may seep into the skin, resulting in a blotchy and uneven finish.

2. Exfoliate At-least One Day Before Tanning.

Exfoliating is an essential step in fake tanning, but it has to be done right. For the best results exfoliate no less than one day before applying your fake tanner and avoid using oil-based, highly moisturising scrubs as these can leave a light film over the skin causing tanner to apply unevenly. Instead, use a small amount of water based body wash with an exfoliating glove (Like Australis No Glove, No Love Exfoliating Mitt) and work in small, circular motions.

Introducing Australis Rapid Tan

This post is brought to you by Nuffnang and Australis Cosmetics.

I’m extremely diligent about sun protection (I rarely step outside without sunscreen) but I’m also someone who dreads the task of fake tanning. It can be a long, tedious task of showering, exfoliating, applying the product, waiting for it to dry and then rinsing. For this reason, I usually go tan free and am often met with remarks such as “OMG you’re so pale!” and “do you ever go out in the sun?” All that changed recently when I decided to forget about my many fake tan horror stories and give the new Australis range a go.

Australis Rapid Tan Mousse

There are hundreds of different tanning formulas on the market; mousse, cream, spray, gradual, wash off tan, instant… Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, it’s generally suggested that mousse is the best way to go. It’s easier to apply than creams, not as messy as sprays and it’s much more lightweight. Australis Rapid Tan is an instant tanning mousse and one that’s easy to apply as well as fast drying. The tan is fast drying so you can still go about your day before rinsing it off, in which case the tan continues to develop for 6 hours so you get a natural looking finish. Gone are the days of stinky fake tan and here are products that have scents that smell good enough to eat. Unlike other tanners which often smell of strong chemicals, Australis has a subtle linger of chocolate which remains prominent on the skin even after washing off excess product. The product comes in two shades, a chocolate mousse for those with a lighter skintone and a purple mousse for those with a dark, or olive toned complexion. Simply apply the fake tan and leave for either 1 hour (for a subtle, light tan) 2 hours (for a sunkissed glow) or 3 hours (for a gorgeous deep bronze) and then wash off. Both shades have a cool-neutral base so there’s no need to worry about looking orange; instead you’re left with a nice summer complexion.

THE TIP-OFF: SELF-TAN LIKE A PRO

Fake it ‘til you make it.

We here at The Sephora Glossy love the sunkissed look of tans, but not as much as we hate the threats of skin cancer, sun spots, and premature wrinkles. That’s why we’ve mastered the delicate art of applying self-tanner. Below, a list of some of our favorite products, broken down by format—so you can find your new favorite, too. BECKY PEDERSON

THE PRODUCT
Vita Liberata Rapid Tan Mousse + Tanning Mitt
THE FORMAT
A foaming mousse that leaves a glow in as little as one hour, plus a reusable, washable, extra-soft flock mitt designed for applying a flawless, even tan.
PRO TIP
Apply in circular motions, starting on the top of your body. Leave elbows, knees, hands, and feet for last, using only the mousse that’s leftover from your full-body application.

THE PRODUCT
Kate Somerville 360° Tanning Towelettes
THE FORMAT
A towelette soaked with a paraben-free self-tanning formula that provides a quick, streak-free application.
PRO TIP
Let the formula dry on your body for five minutes before getting dressed, lest you accidentally stain your clothes.

THE PRODUCT
SEPHORA COLLECTION Gradual Self-Tanning Face Water
THE FORMAT
A gentle, lightweight formula that gradually leaves a soft, natural glow on your visage.
PRO TIP
Use a flat cotton round, as opposed to using a cotton ball, for an even application.

THE PRODUCT
Bronze Buffer Self-Tan Remover
THE FORMAT
An exfoliating sponge that wipes away unwanted stains, even after the color has set.
PRO TIP
Swipe using light strokes on your knees, feet, and elbows, but steer clear of more sensitive areas like your face, neck, and chest—this product exfoliates, so it works best on areas with thicker skin.
