Aftercare for Tanning

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 for at least 8-10 hours, then shower until your guidecolour runs clear and gently pat dry.
  • Avoid excessive exercise, perspiring or getting wet during your development time.
  • Long baths or going swimming will 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.
