Spray Tan FAQ's

Q. What happens when I arrive for my appointment?

A. Prepare for your salon appointment with the below easy steps to achieve the perfect finish. Upon arriving in-salon your technician will conduct a consultation and determine the best possible products for the best tanning results. Wear dark loose clothing as tight clothing or underwear may cause marks.

Remember to wear loose fitting shoes. If the skin is dry, ask your therapist to use a primer, to balance pH levels in the skin and a moisturiser or barrier cream to block unwanted tanning areas like your feet and palms.

Q. What do I need to do to prepare for my appointment?

A. 

  • Exfoliate and moisturise 24 hours before your treatment, paying particular attention to elbows, knees, ankles and problem dry areas.

  • It is highly recommended to have painted your nails and toenails, especially if they artificial.

  • Wax/shave at least 48 hours prior to treatment. This allows the pores time to close. Dotting in pores may appear if not adhered to.

  • The entire 24 hours before your treatment avoid using bar soaps, high pH shower products or in shower moisturisers.

  • Please don’t apply moisturiser, perfume, deodorant or makeup on the day of your treatment.

  • Wear dark loose clothing to your appointment. Tight clothing or underwear may cause marks. Wear loose fitting shoes.

Q. What do I do when I get home?

A. The most important step after your spray tan is the shower process. After an hour (your therapist will advise if you can leave the product on longer), shower quickly with lukewarm water for 45 seconds only.

The brown bronzers will wash away, while tan actives continue to work and deepen. Do not use hot water.

It stops the development of tan actives during the development time. This is a common mistake people make, especially in the colder months. Once you shower, you can wear your favourite clothes, go out of the house and definitely not stain the bed sheets. Your tan will develop into a natural tan without the hassle of fake tan staining and smell.

Q. What is my after treatment check list?

A. 

  • Wear dark loose clothing. Tight clothing or underwear may cause marks. Wear loose fitting shoes.• After one hour, shower quickly in lukewarm water for 45 seconds. Use plain water only, don’t use shower gels, scrubs, shampoos or loofah during the first 24 hours after your treatment.

  • Pat dry after your first shower. Do not rub your skin. You can shower normally the next day or in 24 hours.

  • Moisturise after your first normal shower. Continue to moisturise every day to keep body hydrated so the tan lasts. Fake tan will fade quickly on dry skin.  Ask your therapist about our hydrating gradual tans to moisturise and extend the life of your tan.

  • After day 5, exfoliate with a soft body polish on a daily basis, to help your skin absorb even more moisturiserand keep it looking and feeling gorgeous.
