Spray Tanning Guide


Spray Tanning is a 20 minute treatment and involves wearing a pair of disposable pants, a protective headband and a barrier cream on the soles of the feet and palms of the hands.  You are then escorted to the shower area where your Beauty Therapist will spray you from head to toe with your chosen colour.  Back in the treatment room you will be provided witha drink and some magazines while you stand and "dry" for about 5 minutes before dressing.  The tan will develop to its' optimum colour over the next 24 hours and will last from 5 to 7 days.


Dos and Don'ts for Spray Tanning


Do exfoliate, shave or wax and moisturise the day before your application NOT on the day.

Do wear loose, dark clothing.  The colour guide may rub off onto fabrics but will wash out however it may stain nylon and lycra.

Do remove make up, moisturiser, perfume and deodorant before your application.

Don't wear soft contact lenses during your session.

Don't have a spray tan if you are pregnant or breast-feeding (as a precaution)

Don't tint eyebrows or eyelashes within 12 hours of a treatment.

The first step to a beautiful long lasting tan is preparation.  Use a non-oily body scrub to gently remove any impurities and smooth the skin prior to your spray tan application.
