How long will my tan last?
In general a spray tan will normally last around 7 to 10 days. Certain things can lengthen or shorten this period. This all depends upon how well you follow the preparation advice and how well you follow the post tan advice.
Is there anything I should do to prepare for my spray tanning?
You should exfoliate each day and shave 24-hours before your spray tan. This will remove any dead skin cells and provide a smoother skin surface for the tanning solution.
Is there anything I should not use on my skin before my appointment?
Avoid scented oils, lotions and makeup. Avoid anything that could seep into your skin as this can make your new tan uneven
What should I wear to my appointment?
You should wear loose clothing in dark colours. Try to wear something that you don't care about, as it will get stained, more so if your solution has bronzer in it. The staining may wash out, but it's not guaranteed. Any bra should also be loose fitting and you may even want to leave it off after your tanning. Ensure you have flip flops for after tanning as it’s not advised to wear trainers or tight fitting shoes.
Can I have a spray tan if I am pregnant?
If you are in the first trimester of pregnancy it isn't advised to get a spray tan without consulting with your doctor.
Can I have a spray tan if I have had my eyebrows waxed and tinted ?
I always advise to have any waxing or tinting done at least 24-hours before your spray tan. Spray tanning on freshly tinted eyebrows can cause your eyebrows to turn orange.
When should I shower afterwards?
You should wait at least 8 hours before showering. It's important to avoid any swimming or sweating if possible. Do not apply any products or moisturize. Do not exfoliate before this first shower. All of these things can make your spray tan uneven.
Is there anything I shouldn't use on my skin after my treatment?
Avoid any scented lotions, perfumes and cleaning solutions with acid or peroxide. Anything harsh like this or any chemical will damage your tan quicker.
Is there anything I should use on my skin after my first shower?
Moisturiser is key! Fragrance-free and natural lotions are the best. This will ensure that your skin remains healthy, hydrated, and your spray tan will last longer.
What else can I do to make sure my tan lasts as long as possible?
When your spray tan is new, you need to avoid chlorinated water, as this can make your tan fade faster. Also, reduce the amount of shaving you do, as this works as an exfoliant and can make your tan fade. When your tan begins to fade naturally, you can start most of your daily skincare regime again.
