PREPARING FOR A TAN
All hair removal treatments, waxing, shaving or depilatory creams should be carried out at least 24 hours prior to your spray on tan application so that the natural oils within your skin are restored for optimum tanning results.
The day of your spray tan appointment, we recommend that you exfoliate your skin using gloves or exfoliating shower cloth and a granule based scrub. Exfoliation is vital in preparing the outermost cells of the skin to be not only more receptive to the spray on tan solution during application, but also to ensure that the tan fades evenly.
After your shower (before your spray tan) do not apply moisturizer, deodorant, perfume or make up on your skin as this may hinder the end tanning result.
Bring with you to your appointment:
- a pair of thongs
- loose dark clothing (preferably cotton) to put on afterwards
It is also recommended that snug fitting under-garments such as a bra is not worn directly after the spray on tan application, only after the tan has fully developed which takes 1-4 hours.
Spray tanning appointments usually only take 15-20 minutes
If your spray tan is for a special occasion it is recommended that your get your spray tan 1-2 days before the occasion for the best colour.
Please let the Beauty Therapist know if you are allergic to any products if they are not already aware.
Pre tanning scrubs and exfoliants are available for purchase at reception. Please talk to one of our friendly staff for further information.
You tan can last up to 7 days depending on the home after care applied prior to your tan.
Avoid showering / bathing for 8 hours following your spray tan application as the tan requires the full 2 hours to fully. Once showered, your tan may look lighter; it will develop darker over the next 6 hours after showering.
Avoid exercise that may cause perspiration for at least 2 hours following your spray tan application for the same reason.
Do not apply moisturiser, deodorant, make up or perfume for at least 2 hours following your spray tan application, again for the same reason.
After the 2 hour development time, you can then resume your normal beauty regime such as; showering, moisturizing and applying makeup etc. However Mt Isa’s Natural Beauty & Spray Tanning recommends the following helpful tips in order to maximise the longevity of your tan:
Keep showers quick and not too hot. Cleanse your skin using non-soap; and preferably a non-citrus based formulation as this should utilise and cleanse the skin without prematurely fading the tan.
After each shower, pat your skin dry with your towel rather than rubbing, as rubbing in itself is a mild form of exfoliation, which will prematurely fade the tan.
Once dry, it is imperative that you moisturise every day throughout the duration of your tan (especially in our dry climate) in order to maintain the tan’s depth of colour and prolong its longevity.
Mt Isa’s Natural Beauty & Spray Tanning also recommends that you avoid swimming in chlorinated pools, excessive exercise, soaking in Jacuzzis or sweating it out in saunas, as these actions will fade the tan prematurely.
Please talk to one of our friendly staff on how you can keep your tan look fresh. Natural Beauty and Spray Tanning offer a range of products including PH balanced washes, Tan extenders, Foams, Gels that will extend the life of your tan.
