Our Sr. Product Development Manager, Jacquelyn, who has a robust amount of knowledge in formula and product development, answers our frequently asked questions.
What is the best moisturizer to mix with N°12?
N°12 was formulated to complement your existing skincare routine. Nevertheless, we advise against using moisturizers containing exfoliating acids, as they may diminish the effectiveness of your tan.
Will N°12 work if I’m using retinol?
Yes, however, achieving noticeable results may require more frequent usage. We do not recommend mixing it with retinol; instead, consider using N°12 in the morning if you apply retinol at night.
How does N°32 work?
N°32 contains naturally derived DHA, which interacts with the amino acids on your skin to create a lasting darkening effect. Depending on your skin type, this effect can last up to a week.
Do I need to use a body wash on top of using N°16?
No, the unique of oils in N°16 effectively draws out dirt and impurities from the skin, gently lifting them away to leave the skin both cleansed and hydrated.
How long does N°32 take to develop vs. N°36?
N°32 starts its development process within as little as 2 hours, with most users experiencing their final results within 8 hours. On the other hand, N°36 offers instant color, thanks to the wash-off bronzers in its formula, and also starts its non-wash off development process in little as 2 hours, with most users experiencing their final results within 8 hours.
Will my tan get ruined if I work out?
We advise refraining from exposure to water and sweat for a minimum of 8 hours, while color is developing. Once your tan has “set” you should be able to workout without seeing any streaking.
Why is my N°12 yellow?
Given the natural attributes of the self-tanning ingredient DHA, some discoloration may occasionally occur, particularly when the product has been exposed to high temperatures and/or sunlight. Rest assured, this discoloration does not impact Nº12's efficacy. However, we recommend replacing your product 12 months after opening for the best results if stored properly.
Which product has the best skincare benefits?
Every Lux Unfiltered product is formulated with a blend of skin-nourishing ingredients, carefully selected to enhance and promote healthy skin.
Can I use Lux Unfiltered products while pregnant or breastfeeding?
We kindly recommend consulting your doctor before using our products during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. While our founder both developed and used Lux Unfiltered products during her pregnancies, it’s always best to consult with your doctor.
