How should I prepare for my Spray Tan Treatment?
We recommend shaving and exfoliating the day before your appointment. Leave at least three days between waxing and spray tanning. Please avoid lotions, oils, perfumes, moisturisers, etc, which sink into the skin. This will provide a smooth clean surface and help the tan look flawless.
What should I wear?
Loose, dark clothing and underwear. Your clothing may stain, so we don’t recommend wearing your favourite items. We recommend flip flops or similar footwear.
Can I get a Spray Tan while pregnant?
Spray Tans are not recommended during the first trimester of pregnancy. For your second and third trimester, we recommend speaking to your GP.
Is it safe?
We only use approved products that have been fully checked for health and safety. It is advised you do not get the solution in your eyes, nose or mouth. If you do, please let your technician know straight away. You will be asked to hold your breath and close your eyes while the solution is sprayed onto the face.
We will make sure you are not allergic to our products.
How does it work?
We spray our tanning solution onto the skin. It reacts with amino acids in the skin and the oxygen in the air to give your skin a darker shade. Our technicians are trained to apply the right solution for your skin type. Only the top layer of skin is affected.
Will I look orange?
We use a solution with violet undertones, which counteracts any brassy colouration.
Do I need to undress?
For an even tan, we recommend wearing as little as possible. We provide disposable underwear for treatments and stickers to protect the soles of your feet. If you’d prefer to wear your own, we suggest you choose dark colours as the tan will stain your clothing. You could also wear a bikini.
What happens during the treatment?
You will go into our tanning room alone, to undress. This room locks, and has hooks available for you to hang up clothing and bags outside the tanning tent. You will then enter the tanning tent, and your technician will enter the room. She will instruct you in how to stand and pose for tan application. The spray may be a little cold.
After the application, you will be asked to stand and dry for some time to avoid streaks and patches. Your technician will let you know when you can get dressed again, and give you plenty of privacy.
Does it smell?
Modern solutions use pleasant fragrances, and don’t have the classic “fake tan” smell.
How long will my tan last?
Usually 7 to 10 days.
Can I burn/tan through a Spray Tan?
Yes. Be sure to use appropriate SPF protection.
How long do I need to wait to shower afterwards?
As long as possible, at least 5 hours. If you can, sleep in your tan and shower the next morning. Don’t be alarmed if you see colour going down the drain - your tan won’t be affected. Don’t moisturise or exfoliate before your shower. Please also avoid swimming or sweating as this will cause streaks.
Can I put makeup on after a Spray Tan?
We don’t recommend it! Wait until after your first shower, and be sure to moisturise.
Can I exercise after a Spray Tan?
At least wait until after your first shower, as sweat and friction can cause streaks and patches. Be sure to wear breathable clothing.
What products should I apply after treatment?
After you’ve had a shower (at least 5 hours after treatment), use a natural and fragrance-free moisturiser liberally.
What products should I avoid after treatment?
Avoid scented lotions, perfumes, cleaning solutions including acid or peroxide, and any other harsh chemicals that may affect your tan.
How can I make my tan last longer?
Avoid chlorine and don’t shave/exfoliate too much. Moisturise after every shower and use oil-free products. After showers, pat yourself dry or dab with a towel (don’t rub skin with a towel as this will remove the tan).
Can I shave after a spray tan?
We recommend you shave before your Spray Tan. After your treatment, if you choose to shave, we recommend a fresh, new razor.
