Using three organic tanning agents – Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) boosted by DMI & Erythulose – without any stains or dyes, Fake Bake works with your own unique skin tone to produce a naturally-based darker pigmentation on your skin’s surface. By enhancing your skin’s own pigments, Fake Bake will give you a natural-looking tan that lasts longer. Fake Bake also has a built-in color guide so you can see where you’re applying the self-tanning product on your skin, ensuring streak-free application. Thus, you get a perfectly even golden bronze tan, every time.


Fake Bake is paraben-free and has no artificial preservatives so you can feel secure knowing you’re using a safe and healthy product – a product you can even use safely on your face. The same Fake Bake product actually works for everyone – no matter what skin tone or skin type you have – because our natural ingredients work to enhance your skin’s unique pigment. Each application lasts a week. This moisture-rich formula dramatically softens skin, making Fake Bake the only tan that’s actually good for your skin.


Preparing for a Spray Tan


We recommend the first step you take is to use Fake Bake Body Polish to gently remove flaking or dead skin cells to help create a longer lasting tan. Remember your self-tan fades as your skin sheds. If you remove loose skin cells, the remaining ones will not wear off as quickly. Fake Bake “polishes” skin without lacerating or damaging the surface of newly exposed layers.  Pay particular attention to feet, knees, elbows & hands.

The key to prolonging your Fake Bake Tan is to moisturize.

Make sure you keep your skin well moisturized on a daily basis, twice a day, with any of the 3 Fake Bake moisturizers Oils Free, Mistifier or Skin Smoothie. These products have been specially formulated to work with the Fake Bake self-tans. Other moisturizers may react with the tan & the oil’s in them may strip the tan leaving the skin patchy.


Avoid using harsh shower gels or soaps that can strip the natural oils in your skin. Try not to take long hot showers rather opt for a warm water shower to combat skin from drying out & causing the tan to fade faster.


5 to 7 days after your tan we recommend you gently exfoliate your skin with the Fake Bake Body Polish.

Repeat this every 2 days thereafter to ensure your tan fades evenly & to prepare your skin for your next Fake Bake self-tan application
