NEW PRODUCT DROP: Introducing the New Tanning Prep Wipe from SUGARED + BRONZED

We are thrilled to announce the arrival of our latest innovation designed to enhance your tan and make it last longer. Meet the Sunless Tanning Prep Wipe. We’ve meticulously formulated this wipe to prep your skin perfectly before each spray tan session, ensuring a flawless and enduring tan. Plus, it’s a perfect on-the-go wipe to remove your tan as it starts to fade.

Benefits of the Sunless Tanning Prep Wipe

The Sunless Tanning Prep Wipe is packed with benefits to make your spray tan application seamless and more effective. It's designed to cleanse, balance, and condition your skin, creating the perfect canvas for tanning solutions. Each wipe is infused with skin-loving ingredients that not only prepare but also nourish your skin.

What’s pH-Balance and why is it essential for a Spray Tan?

The pH level of the skin refers to how acidic or alkaline it is, on a scale from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral. Skin typically has a slightly acidic pH of about 5.5. Things like being on your period, just having a shower, being hot, or sweating all disrupt your pH.For spray tans, the significance of pH balance can't be overstated. Here’s why:

DHA Efficiency: The active ingredient in our spray tanning solution is DHA derived from sugarbeets. This colorless sugar interacts with the amino acids in the dead layer of your skin, causing a color change. This process, called the Maillard reaction, is pH-dependent. If the skin’s pH is too high (more alkaline), the DHA might not react optimally, leading to a tan that might not fully 

Even Color Development: When the skin’s pH is balanced, the tan tends to develop more evenly across the skin. An imbalance might cause some areas to darken more than others, resulting in an uneven tan.

Longevity of Tan: A balanced skin pH can also impact how long a tan lasts. Skin that is at its optimal pH before a spray tan is likely to retain the color longer and fade more evenly.

Maintaining the proper pH balance of the skin before a spray tan is essential to ensure that the tan looks natural, is even, and lasts as long as possible without causing irritation. Pre-tan products like our Tanning Prep Wipe  are designed to help balance the skin’s pH, ensuring a better tanning result.

The Necessity of Residue-Free Skin

Before a spray tan, it’s vital that your skin is free from any barriers like soap, moisturizers, and other lotions. Residues from these products can block the tanning solution from evenly coating the skin, leading to patches and streaks. The Tanning Prep Wipe effectively removes these barriers, ensuring that the spray tan solution adheres evenly and thoroughly for the best possible results.

The Role of Exfoliation in Spray Tanning

Exfoliation is another critical step in the tanning process. It removes dead skin cells that can cause the tan to look blotchy and fade unevenly. Regular exfoliation ensures a smoother application and prolongs the lifespan of your tan. While the Tanning Prep Wipe is not a substitute for a full exfoliation routine, it complements your exfoliation efforts by providing a final polish to remove any remaining dead skin cells immediately before your tanning session.

Prolonging Your Tan with the Tanning Prep Wipe

The ultimate goal of any tanning enthusiast is to keep their golden glow as long as possible. The Prep Wipe not only prepares your skin for the initial application but also helps extend the life of your tan. By ensuring that your skin is in the best possible condition at the time of the tanning session, the tan adheres better and fades more uniformly, allowing you to enjoy your perfect tan for longer.
