The Bliss Guide to Home Tanning

.

We know that many of you may be missing our top of the range sunbeds, or awarded bronzing spray tans. You'll be glad to know that we will be kicking off our relaunch with a multitude off offers including sunbed deals, which will be available to purchase online prior to Bliss reopening. In the mean time, we bring you the ultimate guide to perfect fake-tanning at home.

Step 1 - Exfoliate all over beforehand for a smoother, even finish. Use a loofah and follow with an exfoliating scrub such as Soap and Glory's Breakfast Scrub which also smells delicious. For your face use a straight, edge-like facial razor or a gentle, oil-free scrub.

Step 2 - Hydrate areas that tend to soak up a lot of colour, including palms, knuckles, cuticles, elbows, and feet. Hydrating those spots puts a barrier between your skin and the self-tanner, keeping your faux-glow looking more natural. To hydrate, apply an oil-free, lightweight moisturiser.

Step 3 - Use a mitt to apply your self tanner to avoid streaks. Tanning mitts provide a flat, smooth surface for even and flawless coverage. For the best results, start at your feet (apply sparingly there) and work up to your neck using long, vertical strokes. Switch to a smaller mitt to apply self-tanner to your face.

Step 4 - Use a hairdryer to dry to dry the self tan faster. This helps helps the formula dry super-fast and jump-starts the tan-developing process.

Step 5 - Wipe away any excess formula, for example any that may be on your palms, using an oil-free makeup wipe. Don't forget to wipe down the cuticles on your fingers and toes!

Step 6 - If the product that you're using requires you to rinse off, do so with warm water and pat your skin with a towel to dry it. Aggressively drying your body with a towel can lift away the tan.

Bliss Sunbeds vs. Spray Tans: The Great Debate   

24 Feb 2020

Bliss Sunbeds vs. Spray Tans: The Great Debate

An upsetting side effect of winter is that summer tans are long gone, leaving us a lighter shade of pale. Whilst some people are lucky enough to rock the English Rose look no problem, many of us mourn the loss of our bronzed skin with great sadness. Luckily, Bliss is here to rescue you from a winter of pasty pale skin. Bliss offers two different ways to recover your summer glow: sunbeds or spray tans, and our handy blog post will help you decide which one is for you. 
.
.
Contrary to common belief, there are actually plenty of health benefits of using sunbeds. The body converts sunshine into vitamin D, which helps to boost your immune system and increase bone strength. Research has also suggested that it may even help to protect us against depression, cancer and Alzheimer's disease. So for anyone with vitamin D deficiency, or anyone who is worried about, or at risk of, any of the above health problems, sunbeds should be considered. Pre-holiday sun beds also reduce the risk of burning whilst you're away, as they build up some resistance to the sun.
.
Anyone who suffers from skin conditions such as Acne, Psoriasis and Eczema will find that sunbeds are very effective in helping to treat these. Many dermatologists also praise sunbeds for it's benefits in treating dermatitis. Even if you don't suffer from a skin condition, sunbeds make skin less prone to spots, which I think we'd all appreciate!
.
This isn't to say that the usual warning about skin cancer should be ignored- it's still very important to protect yourself from burning and tan safely. For those who burn very easily, spray tans may be a better option. In contrast to sunbeds there is no exposure to radiation, and no risk of burning and the associated health issues. It is also a faster option- you can simply pop down to your local Bliss the day before an event or holiday and you'll be the perfect shade of bronze for the big day. Sunbeds are best used for a gradual tanning which builds up more slowly but lasts for as long as you keep topping it up, or for prolonging your tan post holiday. Another benefit of sunbeds is that your colour is all natural.
.
It's important to think about the pros and cons before you decide on a tanning method, and it's always important to protect yourself on sunbeds. At Bliss we encourage tanning sensibly and safely at all times. Whichever you choose, Bliss is here to help you keep that summer glow and feel fabulous all year round!
Fast tanning October Offer: 100 minutes for £19.95! Course share us available.

Do check our monthly offers regularly as we feature amazing deals on both sunbeds and spray tans.

How to Make Your Summer Tan Last   

30 Aug 2019

How to Make Your Summer Tan Last

When our post-holiday blues begin to kick in the one thing that cheers us up a little is knowing that we've returned to grey, rainy Britain with a beautiful golden tan. If you want to hold onto that bronze glow for as long as possible, be sure to follow these steps to remain brown into autumn. 
.
1. You can't moisturise enough! Apply it every day after being in the sun, at least once, to avoid peeling and prolong your tan, and continue applying a couple of times a day once you get home. No amount of moisturiser is too much so don't be shy.
.
2. Go easy on hot baths and showers and always use a hydrating body wash. Hot water can have a dehydrating effect on your skin so slightly cooler showers are better.
.
3. Exfoliate but very gently. The best thing for your tan is to exfoliate right before your holiday then gently top up after, as dead skin can cause your tan to look faded and dull. However using harsh exfoliates,  hair removal cream or waxing removes the entire top layer of skin and therefore your tan so be careful. 
.
4. Stay hydrated and eat healthily. Drinking plenty of water is essential for healthy, radiant skin, as is eating a healthy balanced diet providing you with all necessary vitamins. Try to eat more foods rich in beta-carotene such as papaya, sweet potato, carrot and mango. 
.
5. If your tan still fades sooner than you hoped, or if you didn't manage to tan as much as you wanted to, Bliss are always on hand with our top of the range sunbeds. Courses can be purchased online or in branch and redeemed at Bliss Baby.
 .
6. There's always the option to fake it with Bliss' sexy contouring spray tans - choose your shade and let our therapists work their magic. Why not combine your spray tan with some other treatments in one of our packages for a glam makeover?
 
All sunbed courses and spray tans can be purchased online here.

How to heal sunburnt skin   

26 Jul 2019
bliss beauty spa leeds

How to heal sunburnt skin

 We're loving the sunny weather we've been treated to recently, and we adore sunning ourselves abroad in the summer. Not to mention we're also a little bit obsessed with sunbeds. However, unfortunately, we can get a little overexcited and forget to take the proper precautions to avoid sunburn. 

We've all been there - it's red, it's hot, it can be blistery, painful and peeling. When we get sunburnt we want to heal it as quickly as possible so we can enjoy the sun again (armed with plenty of factor 50 this time). 

So here are our top tips to heal sunburnt skin as quickly as possible...

1. Cool the affected skin as soon as possible, ideally using ice. Follow with a cold bath or shower, and avoid hot or warm water. 

2. Use products with a high water content, and look for the following ingredients:

Aloe Vera

Cucumber

Shea butter

Rose water

Calamine

Lanolin balm

Fresh cucumber can also be applied directly to the burnt areas to cool and hydrate. 

3. Avoid using exfoliates and skin products that contain the following ingredients for a few days:

Petroleum

Benzocaine

Lidocaine

4. Keep the area moisturised to avoid peeling. Look for moisturisers containing high levels of vitamins C and E. 

5. Avoid the sun until the redness has disappeared. If you must go out in the sun, cover the affected areas and use plenty of sun cream. 

 Anyone who's been sunburnt before will probably agree that prevention is better than cure. So ensure that you're using the correct sun cream - one that is high factor and says the words 'broad spectrum' on the bottle. Reapply every two hours and take regular breaks in the shade. 

Using sunbeds in advance of your holiday can kick start your tan and begin to build up a resistance to burning. Check out our top tips to use sunbeds safely and avoid getting burnt. 

Show the following voucher at Bliss Baby to receive a complimentary sunbed session TOMORROW.
