What Is Inside The JOIK Organic Sunless Tan Facial Drops?

I have used many self-tanners for the face and unfortunately some have left my skin feeling overly dry after application, but not this one! Incorporating hydrating factors with two ingredients that play a role in achieving and building a sunless tan look, the full ingredients are as follows:

Aqua - Solvent for ingredients to dissolve in.

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice* - Moisturiser with anti-inflammatory benefits that supports the skins repair and regeneration cycle.

Dihydroxyacetone - All sunless tanners contain DHA, a colourless 3-carbon sugar that promotes a chemical reaction with surface cells of the skin (this is the sunless tan colour you see) DHA does not damage skin as it only affects the outermost cells of the epidermis (stratum corneum).

Glycerin - Natural moisturiser found in the skin, it keeps skin lipids saturated and protects against irritation while also supporting the barrier function. The humectant and hydrating properties are ideal for dry skin sufferers. 

Erythrulose - Eco-cert approved, the fermented derived natural keto-sugar is a self-tanning active that does not cause skin dryness but provides a longer lasting tan. It usually is used with DHA in the same formula to give you a faster result. 

Sodium Levulinate - The salt of levulinic acid, a synthetic organic acid that helps condition and soften skin while also acting as a preservative in a formula.

Sodium Anisate - Acts as a antimicrobial/antibacterial preservative and is typically paired with the ingredient above. 

Trehalose - A type of sugar that has water-binding properties to hydrate and moisturise the skin. 

Sodium Benzoate - Preservative to help your product stay nicer for longer and has to be paired with the ingredient below to boost its effectiveness.

Potassium Sorbate - Preservative to keep your product nicer for longer.

How To Use The JOIK Organic Sunless Tan Facial Drops?

Presented in a bottle with a pipette dropper tool-similar to your current serum or facial oil the sunless tan facial drops can seamlessly be added into your skincare routine with ease. Preparing the skin before application is an essential factor to achieve an even colour by gently exfoliating the face and neck to remove any built-up dead skin cells so the tan does not cling to any dry patches and you have a smooth canvas to apply the product on. Placing your dispensed lotion, gel, or cream moisturiser in your hand and then using the pipette tool to dispense 3 drops for a light-to-medium result or 6 drops for medium-to-dark, you can then mix the formulation together and apply to the face and neck evenly. 
Washing your hands after you have applied will help to not cause staining and the tan typically develops within 4-6 hours for you to see your own customised sunless tan.

I like how hydrating the JOIK organic sunless tan facial drops leave the skin feeling and it can easily be used in the morning before applying your chosen SPF (don't mix with your sunscreen it will dilute it) or applied overnight after your anti-aging serum/treatment (just allow 20 minutes for those products to work) to achieve a natural looking tan all year round, priced at £33.00 and available here: JOIK Organic Sunless Facial Drops. x Neil.
