24-48 hours before:
💜 If you need to shave or wax before your tan, do this 24-48 hours prior to your appointment. Waxing is the best option for preparing for a spray tan, as you will be hair free for the life of your tan. Shaving frequently after your spray tan will cause it to fade faster.
💜 Moisturise heavily.
💜 Moisturise heavily, doing this in the days prior to your spray tan will ensure your skin is hydrated. Spray tan likes to stick to rough, dry skin, so failing to prepare for a spray tan could cause patchy results.
💜 Shower and thoroughly exfoliate your body to remove dead skin cells and colour build-up from your last spray tan. Doing this the day before will give your pores enough time to close.
💜 While exfoliating, pay extra attention to dry areas like your knees and elbows.
💜 If this is your last shower before your appointment, do not apply any moisturiser, deodorant or perfume, as this will interfere with your results.
On the day:
💜Make sure you have not applied deodorant, body lotion, perfume or moisturisers after your last shower.
💜 Wear loose, dark clothing, and easy to remove footwear such as thongs or slides to your appointment.
Things to do for a longer lasting tan:
💜 Wear loose, dark clothing for the rest of the day after your tan appointment. Tight clothes can cause parts of your tan to rub off or cause tan lines.
💜 For your first shower following your spray tan appointment, it’s best to shower in warm water. Avoid shower gels that can leave a moisturising residue or oily feeling on the skin, and also avoid any products that contain exfoliants. Basic, natural products are best.
💜 When you hop out of the shower, pat your skin dry with a towel lightly, rather than rubbing. This way, you won’t cause parts of your tan to rub off.
💜 Moisturise twice daily to prolong your tan and keep your skin as moisturised as possible. Continue to wear SPF, as having a tan does not protect you from sunburn.
Things to avoid for a longer lasting tan:
💜 Do not shower, get wet or exercise for at least 2 hours for express tan, or 6 hours after your dark, medium or light spray tan.
💜 Avoid soaking in the bath for long periods of time.
💜 Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools for extended periods of time.
💜 Avoid scheduling your manicure, pedicure, waxing or facial appointments after your tan, as these treatments will exfoliate and remove colour from your skin.
You can expect your spray tan to last 7-10 days. Making sure your skin is well prepped prior to your spray tan will help it last longer, exfoliating and moisturising is key! After your tan, wash off according to the time frame advised. When you wash your tan off, shower in warm water and lightly pat dry. Look after your skin by moisturising regularly and thoroughly .This will help to extend your tan further.
It is not ideal to shave after tanning as it can exfoliate your skin and cause the tan to fade. If you must do so, please wait 24 hours after your tan. For the best tan results, get waxed a few days before your spray tan! The more often you are shaving, the faster your colour will fade.
Even the smallest splash of water on your fresh spray tan can result in light spots or a streaky appearance, something that you will really want to avoid. Coming back into the salon to touch up the area with spray tan would be recommended, or carefully use a self-tan to even it out.
You can also disguise this by choosing a bronzer that closely matches your tanned skin colour. Rub it evenly into the affected areas until it blends in. You will have to do this daily or whenever you go out until the tan fades away.
