A Guide To Tan Water

tan water

Beloved by glow-getters everywhere, tan water is the perfect hybrid between self tanning and skincare. Clear, ultra-lightweight and packed with a nourishing blend of Hyaluronic Acid and natural tanning actives, adding a tanning water to your routine will leave your complexion looking and feeling healthier and more radiant. Whether you prefer a refreshing mist or a soothing serum, our St.Tropez tanning water products never fail to delight both skincare obsessives and tanning pros. 

Why use tan water?

A fairly recent phenomenon in the tanning world, tan water allows you to flaunt a natural-looking glow while treating your skin to a little TLC. Often enriched with nourishing skincare ingredients, like Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C and D boosters and Hibiscus Extract, tanning water products are well-loved for their hydrating properties. All of our St.Tropez tanning waters are 100% clean, vegan friendly and use natural tanning actives, making them the perfect glow-boosting option for those with sensitive skin. 

As self tan water products boast clear, no-rinse and no-transfer formulas, they’re ideal for glow-getters who are short of time or simply don’t want to worry about when to rinse.

How to use tanning water

Forget your days of rinsing self tanner in the shower! With a tan water, you just need to apply and glow to achieve your desired sunkissed look. Whether using a gel, mist, serum, or mousse format, our tanning waters’ transparent formulas mean that they can be applied at any time of day, with no need to worry about guide color transferring onto fresh white sheets or clothing. 

Step 1: Prep

Whether tanning your body or your face, create a smooth base by exfoliating and keeping skin moisturised. Add our Tan Enhancing Body Polish And Exfoliator and Moisturiser to your body care routine to ensure that your skin is always glow-ready. 

Step 2: Choose your tan water

Perhaps the hardest part of tanning water application, it’s time to choose your favorite St.Tropez tanning water.

For the face: serum vs mist

If tanning your face, choose our Purity Bronzing Water Face Mist or Purity Vitamins Serum. Our serum can be added to your existing routine, applied mixed into your favorite moisturiser or applied on its own. Perfect for applying under or over make up, our face mist is the easiest way to tan your face. Simply spritz and glow!

Top tip: Use our Purity Face Mist to tan your hands and feet!

For the body: mist vs gel

For the body, opt for our skincare-infused Purity Vitamins Body Mist or our Purity Bronzing Water Gel for 72 hours of hydration. 

Step 3: Apply

Whether using our Purity Mist or Serum, our face tan waters can be applied under or instead of makeup. While our Purity Bronzing Water Gel should be applied like any tanning mousse (in sweeping circular motions using a Mitt), our Purity Vitamins Body Mist is designed to be spritzed directly onto the body and then buffed in with our Luxe Tanning Mitt for a flawless finish. 

Step 4: Glow! 

With no need to rinse, after 4-8 hours of development time you’ll be flaunting a beautiful sunkissed glow.
