Ultimate Bondi Babes (and Twins) Ashley and Olivia Mescia have fallen head over heels for our latest innovation, the Pure Self Tanning range!
Always bronzed, the Mescia Twins are long time lovers of Bondi Sands self tanning products. As Instagram and Youtube influencers, Ash and Liv share their daily life as identical twins and lovers of beauty, fashion, health/fitness, and the Aussie lifestyle. They often step out and show off their glowing skin, whether it be at the gym in activewear or cruising on the iconic Sydney Harbour.
Mescia Twins Self Tanning Routine:
Being twins, our babes Ash and Liv share many things, so of course they share a tanning routine and their love of all things Bondi Sands! Their go-to Self Tan when their skin needs a glow-up is the Bondi Sands Pure Range. With hero hydrating ingredients and its suitability for sensitive skin (like Liv’s) Pure is perfect for the busy Bondi Babe. It’s fragrance-free and dye-free, meaning you can apply, dress and go, for a hassle-free tan.
Step 1: Skin Prep!
To get your very own Mescia Twins glow, shaving and exfoliating is a must 24 hours before applying your self-tan. This will give you the best results by having a smooth surface to apply the tan on, meaning no streaks or patches for a long-lasting tan.
Prepping a day ahead means your pores have plenty of time to close so the tan doesn’t seep in and create small spots on the skin. We recommend the Bondi Sands Body Scrub in Coconut or Tropical Rum scent and for extra intense scrub our Exfoliating Mitt.
Step 2: Moisturise Pre-Glow
The Twins next step is using a moisturiser (we recommend: Bondi Sands Moisturiser) on any dry areas like the elbows, knees and ankles. This will prevent the tan from concentrating too much in one area, leaving you with a smooth and even result.
Step 3: Start With Your Face Tan
Ash and Liv recommend always starting with your face so you can blend down the neck and most importantly wash your hands afterwards. Otherwise, you might end up with too much tanning product on the inside of your hands and no way to wash it off after you’ve done your full body tan.
To wake up with a gorgeous tanned face The Twins holy grail product is our Pure Self Tanning Sleep Mask - watch their TikTok below to get their full nightly routine including our Sleep Mask. A great addition to your weekly skincare routine, the Pure Face Tan products have been specifically designed to nourish your skin while achieving a Bondi Sands glow.
Liv’s Tanning Tip: Make sure you blend into the hairline and eyebrows for a flawless finish to your face.

Step 4: Tan The Rest
For an all-over tan, the Mescia Twins use the Bondi Sands Pure Foaming Water in either Light/Medium or Dark. The super-hydrating ingredients in the Pure formula; hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C and E, work to keep the skin moisturised and radiant, creating a photo-ready tan in 6-8 hours.
Ash and Liv apply the tan directly to the body, starting with their legs and working up to their arms and neck. As Pure is dye-free there is no guide colour. Therefore the girls buff small amounts in with a Tanning Mitt to get a streak-free finish and ensure they don’t miss any areas.
Ash’s Tanning Tip: When applying to your hands and feet, just use what’s leftover on the mitt and buff over.
Step 5: Marinate Overnight
Ash and Liv like to sleep in their tan overnight to get the full golden glow when they wake up, with the added bonus of not needing to put the sheets in the wash as Pure leaves no residue behind. For the full Bondi Babe experience try our super comfy Tanning PJ’s to accessorise your tanning routine.
Step 6: Mid-Week Top Up
When your tan needs a little pick-me-up or you need to stretch it out to another event in a few days time The Twins advice is to use the Pure Gradual Tanning Lotion on the body and the Pure Self Tan Face Drops mixed with moisturiser for the face to maintain your glow.
