As of Jan. 1st 2015 commercial solariums were banned in almost all Australian states; NSW, SA, QLD, TAS and VIC. With WA following suit at the end of the year. A massive win for cancer organisations who have been mounting the pressure in recent years for a ban on tanning beds to be instated. Our sun-burnt country has the highest incidence of melanoma in the world — so you might be wondering why this wasn't done sooner! But, better late than never (and really, we hope none of you were ever solarium regulars), if you're still not a pro at the faux, we've got the ultimate guide to getting your tan absolutely perfect every time.
We spoke to PureTan founder Danielle Newton, who recently shot their campaign with magazine cover-girl and Miss Universe contender Natalie Roser on Sydney's Eastern beaches, and got the step-by-step for getting that flawless glow. As you might imagine it's just important you get the prep right as you do the application and the after-care, so read on to get all the top tips in getting it right every time, and to see our exclusive BTS snaps from the PureTan shoot. If you want Summer's golden glow, sun damage is so unnecessary.
