With Summer well and truly here, it’s time to get our skin out and glow on for those long lazy lunches and vibrant summer nights. But we also encourage you to get your glow IN as well as OUT. Here’s how and why…

During the last few decades we’ve been taught to stay out of the sun for fear of causing sun damage to our skin, but did you know that sitting in natural morning sunlight for 5-20 minutes a day is equivalent to a daily dose of Vitamin D?

The sun enhances our immune system, boosts our energy and helps us get a great night’s sleep. When the sun is shining it’s also Mother Nature’s call for us to get some of that feel good chemical serotonin into our body. Sunlight on the inside makes us happy, literally.

But some of us still use the sun to get a suntan; we bake at high noon, covered in oils hoping to get that beautiful natural glow. Of course we end up doing serious damage to our skin. This is why our Goddess of Beauty created… The Spray Tan.

At Elegant Lashes we use Black Magic Tan. It’s an Australian made brand using natural and organic ingredients that will give you a rich, deep tan with no smell, no parabens and is cruelty free. With green and violet-based solutions, you will NEVER go orange. Black Magic Tan uses aloe vera along with additional antioxidants leaving your skin feeling nourished and hydrated.

You will walk out of the salon looking and feeling like you’ve been holidaying in the South of France, floating on a sun lounge while being served cocktails by beautiful cabana boys (or girls) wearing nothing but a smile, and some cloth.

Combining a healthy amount of sunshine, along with a beautiful Black Magic Tan gets your glow inside and out, and will make you the talk of the town!

Have a listen to one of our favourite world experts on Womens Health, Dr Christianne Northrup telling us about the benefits of sunlight.

Be Fabulous Forever.

With summer just around the corner, it’s finally time to climb out of that pale or for this writer, pasty skin, and unveil a beautiful bronzed body. No need to spend hours roasting yourself on Bondi sands and risking irreversible skin damage to get the look. A tan from the can saves both your time and your skin.

There are two ways to get your body from a silver shine to a golden glow:

1) Head straight to your favourite beauty salon and let a professional do the job or

2) Buy and apply a tanning spray yourself.

Salon Tanning

While in-salon spray tanning tends to be more pricey, trained professionals bestow you with a guaranteed streak-free, long-lasting quality tan that perfectly matches your individually desired skin tone.

Standing completely naked in front of a stranger can feel a little awkward at first. However, experienced salons will always provide you with optional disposable underwear to make you feel more comfortable.

A tanning expert can apply the exact amount of product needed evenly on your entire body for a flawless, natural look. Within minutes the quick-drying and mostly odourless spray tan formula will transform you into a golden summer goddess. No cleaning, no stains, no stress.

Self Tanning

At-home tanning can be a cheap and convenient alternative if you don’t go for expensive brands like St Tropez. Be aware that there are a lot of different products out there and not all of them are high quality.

Check ingredients carefully. You will have to kiss some frogs before finding the prince of tans. Instead of rocking a warm bronzy skin tone, you might just end up with “50 shades of Doritos“.

Once you find the right product, it takes some serious flexibility to spray it evenly over your entire body. Chances are, you will start off your self-tanning journey blotchy and uneven. Practice is key.


As you know we are very serious about your long term lash health at Elegant Lashes and this also extends to the long term health of your skin. Sun damage can cause a range of problems that may take decades to appear and can be irreversible. It’s also the number one cause of premature ageing.

The result of long term sun exposure.

Sun damage appears on one side of this truck driver’s face after years of exposure.

This is why we offer spray tanning at both our Bondi Junction and Parramatta salons.
