If science has told us to avoid anything in the name of skin health, it’s the sun. Time and time again, prolonged sun exposure has been proven to poorly affect the skin, causing wrinkles, dark spots and other signs of premature aging. Yikes.

But while many of us understand that we shouldn’t be tanning, some of us just can’t stop chasing that glow. Thankfully now, getting crisp in the sun isn’t the only way to attain your dream tan. Sunless self-tanner is a safer, healthier way to achieve beautiful colour without sacrificing the health of your complexion.

Not only does opting for self-tanner over a day in our Aussie summer sun help reduce your risk of skin damage, but the right formula can also help impart a healthy-looking glow to the skin. But, even with all its benefits, past tanning mistakes have made many hesitant when it comes to using “sun in a bottle”. We’ll be the first to admit that a great tanning routine is a skill that must be mastered, but that’s where we’re here to help!


Tan-looking skin or youthful-looking skin? Now you can have both! Modere CellProof Sunless Tanning Foam features a lightweight formula that works with the skin’s protein to develop natural-looking colour in as little as 4 to 8 hours and is the ONLY self-tanner that features patented BioCell Collagen® CG.

Powered by Collagen/HA Matrix® Technology, this weightless formula doesn’t just transform your skin’s appearance with head-to-toe colour… it delivers intense hydration and visibly younger looking skinPlus, the collagen peptides and hyaluronic acid in BioCell Collagen CG help promote smoother application, streak-free colour and lasting results.

CellProof Sunless Tanning Foam is transfer-resistant and features a natural coconut and vanilla aroma that will transport you to a tropical escape… without that dreaded fake tan smell. Use this one-of-a-kind sunless tanner for a flawless, mess-free application that is both quick drying and easy to build.


Nailing down a flawless self-tanning application isn’t just about the proper prep; picking the right formula is just as important. Modere CellProof Sunless Tanning Foam features a weightless formula that effortlessly spreads across the body with a precise and seamless blend. The airy, drip-free texture of a foam makes it simple for beginners and pros alike. And because foam absorbs much quicker than lotion, you won’t have a heavy film sitting on top of your skin. This means no streaks, no colour transfer and no sticky residue.

Keep on reading to discover the most common tanning mistakes, and how you can avoid them when you use Modere CellProof Sunless Tanning Foam:

MISTAKE #1: Uneven Colour

No one wants to wake up to blotchy-looking skin, yet uneven colour is one of the most common DIY tanning “uh-ohs”. This is because self-tanners tend to cling to dry, rough patches on the skin, which can lead to an unnatural finish—especially without proper prep.

That’s where exfoliating comes in. Help create an even canvas by gently exfoliating or dry brushing up to 24 hours before applying tanning foam. Working in circular motions will help remove dead skin cells. And don’t forget, always pay extra attention to rough spots like the elbows, ankles and knees to ensure colour doesn’t sink into dry areas.

If you’re applying CellProof Sunless Tanning Foam to your face, use a gentle exfoliator like Modere Exfoliant to help prep and polish delicate facial skin. Featuring jojoba beads, prickly pear and bamboo, Exfoliant helps buff away dull, dry skin for a smooth, radiant complexion that lays the perfect foundation for a seamless tanning application.

PRO TIP:  Plan to shave before you apply self-tanner? Now’s the time to do it! Removing any unwanted hair right after you exfoliate will get you a close shave AND give pores time to close before absorbing colour.

MISTAKE #2: Stained Cuticles and Palms

Stained cuticles and palms are tell-tale signs of a faux tan. Help avoid this common self-tanning mishap with one simple fix: moisturiser. Applying a lotion like Modere Hand and Body Lotion or Modere Body Butter to cuticles, palms, toes and feet BEFORE you use Modere CellProof Sunless Tanning Foam will create a hydrating barrier that prevents your self-tanner from over-absorbing. Also, if you tend to have drier elbows or knees (even after exfoliating), this is a great hack for those areas too! Keep reading for a related tip when it comes to moisturising.

MISTAKE #3: Streaky Application

Want to know a secret? A streaky application isn’t due to too much product…it is due to too little. We’ve all heard the statement “less is more”, but when it comes to flawless-looking tan, more is definitely better. While slathering yourself in a self-tanner might sound like an accident waiting to happen, applying a thick layer of Modere CellProof Sunless Tanning Foam ensures that every inch of the skin is covered. It also guarantees that your self-tanner absorbs seamlessly and avoids any neglected patches—resulting in a more even colour.

The other culprit of a streaky application? Your moisturiser. Most moisturisers are designed to create a barrier on the skin’s surface, which can prevent sunless tanner from developing properly. So, if you tend to use a daily body moisturiser, leave ample time for it to absorb before applying CellProof Sunless Tanning Foam, or moisturise the day before. The exception is any rough, dry areas like elbows and knees that may absorb more product than the rest of your skin; just like exfoliating, moisturising those key spots prior to self-tanning will help ensure a more even result.

Even better, Modere Cellproof Sunless Tanning Foam with BioCell Collagen® CG contains a matrix of collagen and hyaluronic acid that deeply hydrates skin during application without blocking the development of radiant, true colour. In fact, these built-in moisturizers help CellProof Sunless Tanner deliver streak-free results every time.

 MISTAKE #4: Colour Transfer to Clothes or Linens

Many of us have made the last-minute mistake of squeezing in a self-tanner application a littttle too close to a big event, only to look down and find that colour transferred to your clothes as well. No need to dye your favourite white tee—just use Modere CellProof Sunless Tanning Foam! Our unique formula is specially designed to dry quickly—in other words, you don’t have to stand around in the buff waiting for a sticky self-tanning lotion to dry or worry about discolouring your clothes in the name of a beautiful glow. Simply apply CellProof Sunless Tanning Foam from head-to-toe, and in a few minutes you’re ready to throw on an outfit and go!

Alternatively, applying Sunless Tanning Foam in the evening is also a great method if you prefer to rise and shine to tan-looking skin. Our transfer-resistant formula won’t rub off on linens or your pyjamas, and you can wake up to a luminous, even glow come morning.
