Why not go for a spray tan for that all year round healthy glow, or a spray tan for on a special occasion, such as a wedding, a girls night out, a Christmas party.
Tips on skin preparation before receiving a spray tan, to help your tan to look natural and to last longer.
The night before your tan, exfoliate and moisturise, paying particular attention to dry areas such as elbows, knees and ankles.
Wax / shave at least 24 hours before your tan to allow pores time to close, otherwise a dotting effect may occur.
Paint nails and toe nails before a spray tan – especially if they are acrylics or similar.
DO NOT moisturise with any skin lotions or oils on the day of your tan.
Remove make-up, deodorant and perfumes BEFORE your tan as they act as a barrier.
Refrain from eyelash / eyebrow tinting. Allow 24/48 hours to pass as it may react with the DHA.
After your treatment
Wear dark, loose clothing for after your treatment, any tight clothing or underwear may cause wear marks.
Wear flip-flops or loose fitting shoes.
Do not shower or bath for at least 8 hours (the development period).
Try not to touch your skin during development time as your palms will stain.
After showering / bathing, pat dry only.
Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise. This will help maintain your tan for longer.
After 5 days, start to lightly exfoliate to ensure an even fade.
Long exposure to water and sweating from exercise will fade your spray tan.
