A Sun-Kissed Look, The Sunless Way With Nuda

As the founders of Nuda, Mahay and Genevieve are passionate about providing a natural and healthy way to achieve a sun-kissed glow. Their products are designed to be easy to use, ensuring a streak-free application and a natural-looking finish. Believing that self-tanning should be a luxurious and enjoyable experience, their commitment to quality and innovation is evident in every product, from their tanning mousses to their hydrating lotion. With Nuda, achieving a sunless tan is not only safer but also a way to pamper your skin.
Mahay and Genevieve’s responses are below:
1. What is Nuda at its core and how does it help people achieve a sunkissed look?
At our core, Nuda is a brand dedicated to helping individuals find their unique glow! From achieving a radiant, sunkissed look without the harmful effects of UV exposure to empowering self-discovery, we want to see you glow! 
Our mission is to make the world glow differently™ and we’re doing that by providing high-quality, clean, effective, and innovative sunless tanning solutions that cater to both self-tan lovers and professional artists. 
Nuda's products are designed to deliver a natural-looking tan that enhances your skin's appearance and boosts your confidence, all while prioritizing skin health and convenience. Whether you're seeking a subtle glow or a deep bronze, Nuda offers a range of products to suit every skin type, preference and lifestyle.
2. What products does Nuda offer for a sunless tan?
We offer a variety of sunless tanning products for both face and body. Our go-to fan fav is the Face Tan Water; we sell one every 10 minutes! If you ever wake up feeling a little down, pale, or just like the morning got away from you, spray this product on and you will be glowing in a few hours and we promise you will be feeling more confident once it develops. 
For the body - we LIVE for our mousses, they are made in clear and shades of brown. They’re so seamless, non-sticky, and made with hydrating ingredients, because we put your skin first in our formulation process.
Fun fact that most people don’t know, is that the active ingredient that tans your skin(DHA) is actually clear, so when you see a self-tanning mousse that is brown, just know that the color there is cosmetic bronzer and it is used as a color guide for you to see where you apply on your skin.
We don’t stop there – We want to support your sunless glow in more ways than one. Which is why we offer sunless tan, skin care, body care, cosmetics, and sun care to truly Tan, Treat, Enhance, Protect, and Maintain your glow! 
3. What is the importance of topical hydration and how should one prepare their skin before applying Nuda self-tanner?
Topical hydration is crucial for achieving an even and long-lasting tan. Properly hydrated skin absorbs self-tanner more evenly, reducing the risk of streaks and patches. Also, the active tanning ingredient(DHA) sticks to the top layer of the skin, so if you have a clean slate, you have less risk of the tan fading quickly! REMEMBER: The prep is just as important as the itself, so don’t skip out on the prep.
 To prepare your skin before applying Nuda self-tanner, follow these steps:
Exfoliate: Use an exfoliating mitt and our scrub to remove dead skin cells, ensuring a smooth surface for the tanner to adhere to.
Moisturize Dry Areas: Apply a lightweight moisturizer to areas prone to dryness, such as elbows, knees, and ankles, to prevent them from absorbing too much tanner and becoming darker than the rest of your body.
Clean Skin: Make sure your skin is clean and free from any lotions, oils, or deodorants that could interfere with the application of the self-tanner.


4. How can I maintain my Nuda tan to make it last longer and are there sweat-friendly self-tanners?

Avoid Long Hot Showers: Hot water can strip the tan from your skin. Opt for lukewarm showers instead.

Pat Skin Dry: After showering, gently pat your skin dry with a towel instead of rubbing in circular motions.

Moisturize Daily: Keep your skin well-hydrated with a good quality moisturizer to prevent it from drying out and peeling. Morning and night, we better see you applying your body lotion. 🧴👀

Yes, there are sweat-friendly self-tanners, but not sweat-proof(we’re working on it). Nuda’s clear mousse formulas are designed to be transfer-free and long-lasting. If you want to tan, but also like pilates, opt for our clear products.  When we say transfer-free, we mean they won’t get on your white sheets or workout sets! 
5. What does ‘staying shady’ mean to the brand and how does it fall into the importance of sun protection?
We like to say “We’re not shady, we’re sunless”. 
Mentally, don’t be shady, but physically GET IN THE SHADE! 
‘Staying shady’ embodies the need for sun safety and protecting skin health. 
The phrase emphasizes the importance of avoiding harmful UV exposure by opting for sunless tanning solutions. By choosing Nuda, you can achieve a beautiful natural-looking tan without the risks associated with traditional sunbathing or tanning beds. We don’t want you to have premature aging or skin cancer. Nuda advocates for sun protection through the use of broad-spectrum sunscreen, sunless tanning, nourishing the skin, and other protective measures, like STAYING SHADY.
To inspire your Sunless Summer, we’ve curated a Spotify playlist that will make you feel poolside; without being in the sun. 
Happy Summer – sunless, be more™!
