Youthful Glow with LAMAV’s Anti-Ageing Face Tan Serum and Expert Tanning Tips


Seasons of sunshine are on the way and the temptation to head out the door and soak up those skin warming rays can be hard to resist after hibernating through winter. Small amounts of sunshine are important, as the sun’s ultraviolet rays provide the energy for Vitamin D synthesis to occur. Vitamin D is essential for overall health including calcium and phosphorus absorption, and also plays a big role in boosting our mood.

However, enjoying too much sun can cause sunburn , eye damage and premature ageing, particularly when it comes to the sensitive skin on our face. Daily sun protection should be a non-negotiable inclusion in everyone’s AM skincare routine to support the overall health of your skin. While we’re big fans of sun protection here, SPF certainly does the opposite when it comes to gaining a bronze, glowing complexion. So, how do we achieve summery bronze skin from head to toe without the risks of sun exposure? 

Self-tan may be the obvious answer, but let me stop you before you reach for your tanning lotion. Applying the same tanning lotion to your face that you use on your body may give you the natural, sunless glow you’re looking for, but it could also cause a few problems. Here’s why:


  • The skin on our face is generally more sensitive than the skin on our body, and as most tanning lotions are formulated with body skin in mind, ingredients may not be so suited to the skin on our face
  • The skin on our face is more prone to breakouts and reactions, and the thicker texture of tanning lotions for the body may block pores, causing blemishes and skin reactions
  • The skin on our face requires daily support when it comes to hydration and tanning lotions created to tan the body may not have ingredients that specifically support hydration


If you want a safe, undetectable glow to match your face to your bronze body, investing in a Face Tan Serum is essential. Step up your tanning game with LAMAV’s Anti-Ageing Face Tan Serum. Developed specifically to improve the condition of your skin while you enjoy a beautiful natural glow, our Face Tan Serum will deliver the following benefits:


  • 100% Natural & Certified Organic
  • Infused with clinically proven anti-ageing bio-actives
  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production to support age-defence
  • Supports hydration 
  • Suitable for sensitive skin and use during pregnancy


This unique serum formulation ensures that your transformation into a bronzed bombshell is accompanied by a clear, fresh, and hydrated complexion that blends seamlessly with your body. It naturally evens out the skin and provides a healthy glow, giving you the confidence to face the day makeup free. Say hello to a foundation free summer!

Sounds too good to be true? Let’s look at some of the key ingredients that make this tanning-meets skincare serum possible.



Argan Oil

Derived from cold pressing argan nuts, this skin-protecting superfood is light and non-greasy, making it ideal for oily or acne-prone skin types. A deeply moisturising, anti-inflammatory oil that helps to balance the skin’s natural lipid levels without clogging pores, win-win! Enjoy the benefits of a stronger skin structure and improved skin elasticity. Say hello to youthful, glowing skin!

Hyaluronic Acid

Did someone say hydration? With the ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, this impressive ingredient delivers and locks in moisture to seriously plump up the complexion.

Co-Enzyme Q10

Co-Enzyme Q10 is a powerful antioxidant and plays an important role in carrying energy to our cells. It neutralises and even prevents damage caused by oxidative stress due to ageing. Topically CoQ10 assists in reducing the visible signs of ageing including fine lines, pigmentation and wrinkle depth. Hooray for age defence while tanning!

Aloe Vera Leaf Juice

Aloe Vera supports skin with hydration while calming and soothing any redness or irritation.



Whether you’re tanning your face or body, a flawless application lies in the prep work. Exfoliating and boosting hydration in the 24 - 48 hours prior to tanning will give your tan the smoothest base to work with.

Help your skin along with its natural shedding process by investing in a gentle but effective exfoliant. We recommend LAMAV’s AHA Face Exfoliant as you’ll get the benefits of physical and natural chemical exfoliation thanks to the inclusion of Potent AHAs and fine bamboo particles. Plant derived AHAs will gently but effectively break down dead skin cells for deep exfoliation while Bamboo particles and Diatomaceous Earth buff away dry skin, leaving you with a silky smooth complexion minus the irritation.

Applying moisturiser directly before tan is a big no-no, as the tan will have no chance to absorb or develop, sliding straight off the skin. To prevent dry skin throughout the application and developing process, boosting your skin with as much hydration as possible in the days leading up to applying your tan is absolutely non-negotiable. Opting for natural products that contain skin nurturing oils along with hydration heroes such as Hyaluronic Acid is a sure way to boost and lock in moisture prior to tanning. 



Ensure your skin is clean, dry and free from any makeup or moisturiser. Apply one pump onto clean fingers and gently massage evenly all over the face, blending down to the neck and décolletage, being careful to avoid close contact with the eye area. Apply daily for up to 3 days until you reach your desired colour. Maintain your natural glow with top ups 2-3 times per week. 



The beauty about our Anti-Ageing Face Tan Serum is that it develops gradually, so if applied correctly you won’t notice it wearing off. And as we wash our face daily and exfoliate weekly, it will remove some of the tan. If you have built up the Tan Serum over a number of days and would like a clean slate, simply implement the same steps used for preparation. Cleansing, exfoliation and moisturising using nourishing oils will effectively break down and remove any excess tan left on the skin. Easy!
