For your convenience, our most common customer questions are answered right here.
Q. Can I swim once I have applied Selfie?
A: You should not wash, bathe, swim, shower or exercise within the development time. Once your tan has fully developed you may swim, but be cautious as salt water and chlorinated pools may result in your tan fading more quickly.
Q: Does Selfie protect me from UV exposure?
A: No. Our products do not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin while tanning may increase the risk of skin agin, skin cancer and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn.
Q: Is Selfie tested on animals?
A: No. All of our products are cruelty free.
Q. How long will my tan last?
A: Results may vary, but generally a Selfie tan will last between 4-10 days. This depends on your skin type, how quickly your body naturally sheds its skin cells, and how you care for it.
Q. Will I smell from using Selfie?
A: No. Each Selfie product is formulated with our patent pending fresh and clean fragrance technology that awakens your senses while leaving your skin deliciously fragrant; virtually eliminating the tell-tale self-tan aroma.
Q. Will I turn orange or get too dark?
A: No. You will not turn orange or get too dark. Our products are uniquely formulated to work with your natural skin tone so your tan develops to match that of a natural tan.
Q. Will my tan be uneven or blotchy?
A: No. As long as you properly follow our application instructions then your tan will come out flawless.
Q: What is the difference between a self tanner and gradual tanner?
A: A self tanner is a product that provides a medium to full strength shade and once applied to the skin is left to develop for a period of time. A gradual tanner is a gentle tan that can be built up to a medium to full strength shade when applied over a period of time. Our gradual tanner contains moisturizer, which is great to help prolong your tan while adding the benefit of colour.
Q: Are self tanners safe?
A: Yes. Self tanning products are universally accepted as safe and effective by both the FDA and EMA (european Medicines Agency). Many organizations such as the American Academy of Dermatology, Mayo Clinic, Skin Cancer Foundation and the American Medical Association recommend self tanner over sun and tanning bed exposure. For any additional concerns, please consult a medical professional.
Q: Can Selfie be used during pregnancy?
A: Yes. All of our ingredients have no known toxicity. Selfie only works upon the uppermost layers of the skin and cannot get into the bloodstream from normal application; however, be aware that hormonal changes during pregnancy may affect the development of the tan. Do not apply to the breast area if breastfeeding.
