How important is Active Skincare in Tanning Products?

Active Skincare infusion is Azure Tan’s point of difference in the tanning market - and we couldn’t be more excited to change the industry with this approach to tanning. 

With over a decade’s experience in the industry, we have seen the products that have made their way through the market and identified how the combinations of ingredients work with and affect the skin. We knew that we wanted to create products that didn’t just give you a beautiful tan when you desired it, but products that also nourish and love your skin. 

We wanted to create products that can be used daily as your everyday skincare, with the added bonus of giving you a natural glow. 

We wanted to create products that, unlike a lot of others on the market, won’t mean sacrificing the health of your skin to achieve your desired results. 

And that’s exactlywhat we have achieved. 

Azure Tan products contain a range of active skincare ingredients that we have tried, tested and combined to achieve the perfect balance and best results. 

Not only does using each product give you that bonus of nourishment - but it allows you to choose products based around targeting your individual skincare concerns! 

There are a few active ingredients that we love and have included, so here’s a look at some of our favourites:


Ceramides are lipids naturally occurring in our skin, creating a natural barrier against environmental stressors while retaining moisturiser. However, an imbalanced ceramide ratio often leads to skin inflammation, dryness, and itching.

And sadly, your natural ceramides levels often decrease with exposure to hot water, certain chemicals, age and environmental factors. So, it's good to use products in your everyday routine that contain ceramides to help strengthen and regenerate this natural barrier.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a humectant with intense hydrating and moisturising properties. It’s a naturally-occurring sugar in our body. Again, as we age, natural levels of hyaluronic acid begin to drop, which can cause the change of skin tone and loss of elasticity. You can replenish this loss with topical applications of products containing hyaluronic acid as an active ingredient.
