Spray Tan Questions & Answers

How Long will my Spray Tan last?

Approximately 5-7 days. However this can be extended with the correct use of pre and post care products.

How does it work?

Once you have chosen your desired Tan colour, our trained therapist will apply your Tan using a spray system. The active ingredients used are DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) and Erythrulose. They originate from sugarbeets / roots and are approved by the FDA (Food, Drugs Administration) for safe use on skin. These ingredients have been used safely in cosmetics for over 30 years.

What preparations should I make prior to my appointment?

You must thoroughly exfoliate the day PRIOR to your Tan in order to remove all your dead skin. Please DO NOT use a moisturiser on the day of treatment. Daily moisturising, using a recommended after care product, AFTER the bronzer is removed (when you shower) will extend your Tan by 2-3 days.

Shave or wax at least 24 hours prior to your Tan spray application.

Remove all traces of make-up, deodorant and perfume as they can create a barrier, or may react and change the colour of the tan.

What should I wear for my appointment?

Wear loose dark clothing immediately after your Tan application. This avoids the bronzer rubbing off onto lighter garments. The bronzer is water soluble and will wash away. Care should be taken with light undergarments as the colour can hold on the inner linings / Lycra of these garments.

DO NOT wear tight items of footwear or clothing that could cause friction and rub marks, for example tight socks, trainers, boots and belts.

DO NOT apply moisturiser or liquid make up. Bronzing / loose powder is acceptable as is mascara and lipstick.

We provide paper thongs and hair nets to wear furing the spray tan.

What actions/precautions should I take after my appointment?

DO NOT wash your hands for the first 2-3 hours to avoid water marks on the wrists.

Leave the Tan application on the skin for a minimum of 8-12 hours. For optimum results, leave on the skin overnight.

Shower as usual the following morning. Your Tan sunless application contains a cosmetic bronzer and this will wash off during showering. DO NOT worry, as this is usual and does not affect the end results of your Tan. Pat the skin dry post showering. DO NOT rub. Apply your recommended moisturiser or Tan maintainer whilst the skin is damp.

DO NOT exfoliate again for at least 5 days post your Tan spray or until the day prior to your next application.

DO NOT take part in any exercise or activities whilst your Tan is developing. You can resume your normal activities once the bronzer has been removed in the shower.

DO NOT swim whilst your Tan is developing. Wait until you have showered off the bronzers. Chlorine and salt will fade your Tan faster, as this has a bleaching affect on the skin.
