What Is Body Tan Mist?
Body tan mist - or as body tanning water - is the latest cult product in tanning formulations that offers a natural glow minus tell-tale streaks and with minimal time or effort needed.
Made using natural spring water as the primary base, body tan mist as it hints, is light and dewy in nature making it non-invasive (i.e. won’t clog pores like thicker lotions) and buildable, allowing you to spritz it for up to three times a week, or as you see necessary.
In terms of the formulation, speaking to our own Three Warriors Body Tan Aqua Mist it’s ultra safe as it is vegan, certified organic and made only using plant-based ingredients and water from mother nature.
A dream formulation, our Three Warriors Body Tan Aqua Mist contains skin loving benefits alongside an in-built dewy glow.
Think rich minerals and electrolytes direct from pure Tasmanian Water, skin plumping ingredients hyaluronic acid and Tasmanian marine collagen and hydrating plant-based derivatives including rose oil, aloe vera and Tasmanian olive oil to soothe and soften skin.
How Do I Use Body Tan Mist?
For those new to any kind of tanning water or tanning mist, it works much in the same way you would spritz a face water or aloe vera post sunburn over the surface area of the body.
Body tan mists are designed to operate in the same way, they just come with an added hint of tan as well. So really, it’s as simple as a spritz and set on bare skin, the only key difference is ensuring you spritz the entire surface layer of your skin, leaving no patch unturned.
We’re talking behind the knees, the ankles, the armpits, the neck.. you feeling us?
Still worried you’ll slip up? We’ve got you, see our breakdown for a step-by-step guide to applying body tan water below.
How To Apply A Body Tan Mist?
Start with a scrub
Prep your body first for fake tan by removing dead skin cells with a gentle scrub. To scrub, mix a small amount of Three Warrior Tasmanian Sand Scrub onto fingertips (or a Three Warriors Exfoliating Glove), then apply in gentle circular motions to lightly exfoliate the skin.
- Rinse and repeat
Wash off scrub in the shower and give the body a good rinse off to ensure no makeup, sweat or products are left lingering on the surface layer of skin. Then towel dry skin to prepare for tanning.
- Spritz away
Holding the bottle 30cm away from the body, spritz the body tan mist evenly from head to toe, ensuring you cover all those hard to reach places. Then allow it to settle into skin before putting a robe or clothes on.
- Get your glow on
Once the body tan mist has settled, skip the rinse and let your radiant self glow on, the tan will develop within 3 hours.
For those still feeling it’s a little subtle, simply spritz again. Use up to three times in a week to build an even deeper tan.

Q. What are the benefits of body tan water for skin?
Tanning water is a source of liquid gold for more than just its external glow benefits, it also promotes healthy, internal skin benefits too; with hydration, anti-ageing and de-stressing just a few of the things our body tan mist offers skin.
And who doesn’t want dewy, glowing skin from the inside out?
For the skin benefits of each core ingredient in our tanning water read on below:
- Rose oil: contains antioxidants that support skin healing and protect against free radicals

- Hyaluronic acid: helps retain moisture for the skin, reducing appearance of fine lines.
- Aloe vera: locks in moisture and soothes skin for a calm, softened complexion.
- Tasmanian olive oil: prevents signs of photo-ageing and sun damage.
Q. Why use body tan water over other tan products?
While we won’t pick favourites, one of the best perks of the body tan mist is that it’s the lightest and most fuss-free of all formulas.
Meaning it won’t stain sheets or streak easily, it will absorb much quicker and it’s light to touch and to apply. Plus it just feels good to spritz on.
Often fake tan can feel sticky, heavy and thick, pore clogging or just tiresome to apply, which is why, in our eyes the body tan mist is the creme de la creme of fake tan in that it feels, looks, smells and acts nothing like a regular fake tan. It turns tanning from a task into a self care ritual you crave, because your skin loves drinking it in too!
As our newest formula, we also can’t hype up the ingredient profile and skin loving benefits enough.
While all our Three Warriors tanning formulas offer plant based ingredients direct from the most pristine shores, springs and lands throughout Tasmania, the body tan mist is a world first in terms of its added ingredient profile.
The Three Warriors Body Tan Aqua Mist isn’t just a tanning water, it also offers hydration, skin plumping, anti-ageing and nourishing skin benefits alongside the tan.
So in a nutshell, it’s much more than a tanning water, it’s a 4 in 1 skincare product with a bonus tan!
Q. Can body tan mist expire?
Like all tanning formulas, we always recommend reading the label and trusting the brand guidelines.
Three Warriors is an organic tan brand that uses plant based ingredients, which means it’s not only a natural tan but it’s as close to mother nature as you can get, so like any organic fruit and veg produce (that’s not chemically laden), it should have a set shelf life and expiry date as its not chemically enhanced.
That said, we recommend always following the best before dates as provided on the bottle and not exceeding usage times beyond that date.
Q. I am new to fake tan and nervous about using it. Are there any other guidelines you recommend?
