Here you'll find the most common questions about our products. If you don't find the answer to your question, please contact us at 🌸


For how long does an opened Self-tanning bottle last?
From the date that the product gets filled, it lasts for 3 years if it's unopened. If it's opened, at least 6 months.

I don't get any result when I use Self-tanners, why?

All Self-Tanning products from IDA WARG Beauty contain DHA extracted from natural sugar, which sets on dead skin cells. That's why it's important not to use acids or other exfoliating products 24 hours before use, or together with the any self-tanning product. When exfoliating, you remove dead skin cells where the DHA is suppose to settle on.The product won't have anything to attach to, and therefore gives no result. 

The Self-Tanning Face Lotion gets grainy when I apply it, why?
The Self-Tanning Face Lotion could get grainy if you apply it on your face after you have put on your regular face cream. Therefore, the products should be applied on clean and dry skin to make an even, moisturised and long-lasting result. If you put on the self-tanner on your face cream, the tan does not attach as well on the skin and is going to get washed off faster. To get the best result, apply the product on dry skin.

My Self-Tanning Mousse is white, why?
IDA WARG Beauty has three different Self-Tanning mousses, one uncoloured (Original) and two of them with colour (Instant). The uncoloured mousse comes out as a white foam and when you apply it, it´s uncoloured on the skin but starts to develop to a sunkissed tan after 3 hours and keeps developing for 12 more hours. The other mousses are Instant, which means they're giving colour instantly since the product already is coloured in the bottle.

Can I sunbathe while using Self-tanners?
Yes, the fragrance-free Self-tanners are OK to sunbathe with. Please be careful when sunbathing with the perfumed Self-tanners. We always recommend to use an additional SPF product to be safe in the sun!

Can I use Self-Tanning Water Mist on makeup?
Of course! The Self-tanning effect gets best if you use it on clean and dry skin, but since it contains Hyaluronic Acid, it´s a perfect touch-up to use on makeup to get a hydrated, glowy and sunkissed result!

Should i apply Self-Tanning Body Lotion with my hands or a mitt?
To get the best result, apply the lotion to clean, dry skin with your hands (and make sure to wash your hands thoroughly when you are done with the application!)

If you want to apply a second layer, make sure to wait at least 15 minutes so that the first layer dries. This is to ensure that the colour guard doesn’t bulge up and look streaky.

How do I know which hair-series that fits my hair the best? 
Every hair type needs different properties. To get the best info, read about the series on the category pages here on the website. Overall, they work like this:

Colour Protecting – For coloured hair, developed with heat protection.
Cure - Prevents dandruff and soothes irritated scalps, while stimulating hair growth and moisturising hair and scalp.
Everyday – For the one who washes their hair often.
Moisture – For dry and thick hair that needs moisture.
Plumping – For the one who want extra fullness, volume and density to the hair.
Pro Growth – Prevents hair loss and stimulates hair growth.
Repair – For damaged hair that needs protein.
Silver – For the one who wants to get rid of yellow and warm tones in a blonde hair.
Volume – For a thin and fine hair that wants volume.

Why does my hair get dry when I use the Repair series?
The Repair series is developed for a damaged hair, and it´s very easy to get confused between if you have a damaged hair or if it's just dry. Damaged hair needs protein to be able to rebuild the hair again, while dry hair can be experienced like even more dry when adding proteins, and needs moisture instead. For a damaged hair, Repair is an excellent choice. But for a dry hair you need to add moisture, then the MoistureEveryday or Colour Protecting series are an excellent choice!
