Before your Spray Tan

Exfoliate regularly especially the night before your tan. Pay particular
attention to knees, elbows and any other dry areas.

Wax/shave or have eyelash/eyebrow tinting 24/48 hours prior to
treatment.

DO NOT moisturise or use deodorant and perfume before your tan as
they can act as a barrier.

Wear/bring loose dark clothing and flip flops or loose fitting shoes.
Tight clothing will cause the tan to rub off during the developing stage.

We do advise a skin patch test especially if you have sensitive skin.

It is advisable to remove contact lenses before the tan, to avoid
contamination.

Remove all jewellery.

After your Spray Tan

Leave the tan on at least 8-10 hours, then shower until your guide
colour runs clear and gently pat dry.

Avoid excessive exercise, perspiring or getting wet during your
development time.

Long baths or going swimming with fade your developed tan quicker.

Remember that your sunless tan does not have any SPF: you will need
to use sun protection.

Moisturise daily to enhance your tan and prolong your colour.

Exfoliate after 4-5 days to encourage even fading.
