Spray tans are perfect for tanning beginners and are a great way to avoid the sun’s harmful rays whilst maintaining a radiant glow.

In addition to sun damage, hyper pigmentation and the deadly health risks associated with prolonged sun exposure, UV Rays can also attack the collagen naturally occurring in your body. Collagen is what keeps us from sagging, ultimately keeping us looking younger for longer. Sun damage is the biggest contributing factor to premature ageing.
So, now that we have scared some sense into you, let us discuss the alternative.

How to get the most from your Tan
It is all in the prep work.
Whether you’re visiting Beauty On Latrobe for a routine Spray Tan or your taking matters into your own mitt and tanning from home, what you do beforehand will significantly enhance the longevity of your tan and quality of your application.
Thoroughly cleaning and exfoliating your entire being prior to application is a must. This will remove any perfumes, deodorants or SPF products from your skin that may affect the application. It will also help to rid your body of dead skin cells.
Avoid applying any deodorants, fragrances or skincare after your shower or bath prior to your tan with the exception of moisturiser which can be applied on the areas of your body that are dry such as your knees, elbows and ankles. This tan hack can help prevent build up of product and help you avoid bright orange elbows.
Now that you’ve got your glowing, bronzed complexion, how can you make the most of it? Moisturising is the key to extending your tan! Keeping your skin hydrated will allow your skin cells to hold the tan much better and will make it look super healthy. Moisturising can include using products such as body oils, body butters and gradual tanner lotions. These products will have you representing the J-Lo glow real quick!
Avoiding hot showers will work wonders for your skin. When you shower in hot water it drains your skin of moisture and leaves your skin thirsty for hydration. Showering in cool to warm water will keep your skin cells hydrated and healthy.
How to Stay Protected this Summer
We cannot say it enough, SPF is everything!!
At Beauty on Latrobe we offer a range of SPF products that will provide your skin with every day broad spectrum sun protection. By wearing SPF daily you are reducing your risk of UV induced skin conditions by up to 50% and preventing long term effects such as premature aging, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and sagging.
Keeping your skin as covered as possible is another great way to avoid negative effects of the sun. At Beauty on Latrobe we stock the Original Sexie Rashie in a range of colours and patterns. This product is a beautifully crafted and fully lined, luxury long sleeve one piece. The rashie has a tailored fit with cinching waist-panelling that supports a woman’s natural shape. The high-quality Italian fabric used to create this sexy and sophisticated product has been rated UPF50+.
Don’t forget about after care! When you spend prolonged time in the sun, your skin is stripped of its natural hydration. It’s super important to follow up with after sun care in order to keep your skin moisturised, healthy, and smooth. At Beauty on Latrobe we stock the Ultraceuticals SunActice Face & Body Recovery After Sun Cream. This product has a fast-acting, non-greasy formula that contains skin loving ingredients such as Soybean Extract, Tasmanian Berry Extracts, and Vitamin E Phosphate to soothe the skin post sun exposure.
