TANNING TIPS

Exfoliate Much?

Ensure your skin is 'tan ready' by gently exfoliating in the days leading up to your appointment.  Concentrate on dry skin areas such as elbows, knees, ankles, etc.  


There are many great pre-tan prep products on the market but a loofah or tan-off mitt is the perfect tool.  Try not to overscrub, especially prior to your tan as it can enlarge your pores and irritate your skin. 

Bye Bye Old Tan!

We all love hanging on to last week's tan, but at some point you have to be brave and say, farewell.  For the best tanning outcome your skin needs to be free from previous tan, clean and dry.  


Best not to shower just prior to your tanning appointment as this can leave moisture on the skin.  

Hair Removal

Shaving, waxing or hair removal creams are best used at least 24 hours prior to your appointment to allow your pores to relax.  


And remember - no waxing whilst you are tanned as waxing will strip the tan.  


Laser skin removal cannot be performed whilst spray tanned so try and book your appointments around this.

What to Wear?

Most importantly, wear what makes you feel comfortable.  Some clients go nude, some wear underwear or swimmers and others prefer our supplied disposable g-strings for minimal tan lines.  We will always makes you feel comfortable and remember that bodies come in all shapes and sizes.  A tan will make you feel fabulous!  


Loose clothing is best for after wear such asa  loose t-shirt, light sun dress or light robe.


Moisture, sweat and tight elastic are not your friend directly after your spray tan. 


Lightweight clothing and cool breezes in the comfort of your own home!

Wash Off Time

How long you leave the tanning solution on your skin will depend on the tanning outcome you desire and your skin tone.


Wash off after 2 hours - natural to medium

Wash off after 3 hours - medium

Wash off after 4+ hours - dark 


We will consult with you at your appointment and advise you on how long to leave the solution on.


At required time, have a quick shower without any soap products and ensure the run off is clear before hopping out.  Be sure to pat dry with a soft towel and moisturise at least once per day.

Tanning Aftercare

Our skin cells naturally shed every day or two.  To keep your tan looking beautiful and lasting as long as possible:


-  Use goat's milk soap or SLS free wash

-  Moisturise at least once per day

-  Try not to soak in hot baths or spas

-  After swimming, rinse off in fresh water

-  Gently pat with your towel rather than rubbing


Most spray tans should last 5-7 days (skin & activity dependent).  Correct aftercare will ensure your tan fades naturally, doesn't patch and will remove easily.
