Below are a list of FAQ's when it comes to achieving the best spray tan.
If you have another question, please let us know so we can add it to our list!
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR A SPRAY TAN?
BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT
- Wax or shave at least 24 hours prior.
- Exfoliate your skin thoroughly in the shower, focussing on the drier areas of your body such as elbows, ankles and knees.
TO YOUR APPOINTMENT
- Do not apply perfume, makeup, moisturiser or deodorant on your skin. This can create a barrier that could affect the absorption of tan into your skin.
- Wear loose dark clothing to minimise the tan rubbing off after application. Any residue on your clothes should wash out.
- If it is raining, wear long sleeves, and bring an umbrella to your appointment.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY SPRAY TAN?
After your appointment, avoid water and anything that may cause perspiration.
Shower to rinse off the product. At this point, it may look like there is no tan. Don’t be concerned, the product takes 24 hours to develop to its full colour.
After showering, use your towel to pat dry - don’t rub as this will lift the tan and could cause patchiness.
Moisturise well with a product that hydrates and nourishes your skin.
Staying well hydrated, and moisturising regularly will assist your tan in lasting longer.
Remember, that everyone’s skin tone will react differently to a spray tan.
Please be aware that excessive exercise, exposure to chlorine, your hormone levels and travelling may affect the longevity of your tan.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO HAVE A SPRAY TAN?
We recommend booking your spray tan 1-2 days before your event.
If you spray tan regularly, we recommend at least 7 tans in between each tan to allow your skin to exfoliate naturally.
HOW LONG SHOULD MY SPRAY TAN LAST?
7-10 days depending on how well the skin has been prepared.
I'M GETTING MARRIED AND DON'T WANT MY SPRAY TAN TO LOOK OBVIOUS. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
We recommend booking a spray tan trial to ensure that you are happy with your spray tan before the big day. Your tan should never look fake, or steal the limelight on your big day!
I'M BREAST-FEEDING, IS IT SAFE TO SPRAY TAN?
We have designed our spray tan formulas to be "express" so that you can tan and shower in-between feeds.
If you are breast-feeding, please let us know and we will avoid the breast area, while still giving you the best spray tan ever!
I'M PREGNANT, IS IT SAFE TO SPRAY TAN?
Spray tanning while pregnant is a personal choice. We recommend speaking with your medical professional before making your decision.
If you are planning to spray tan while pregnant, please let us know when you arrive at your appointment. We are happy to provide nose filters, should you require.
