All Your Spray Tanning Questions Answered

Nothing will ever beat that feeling of when you have that sun kissed glow, but unfortunately having a real tan often comes with a price of having skin damage and the risk of cancer. This is why over the years Spray Tanning and Self-Tanning has become more and more popular, and with our Sienna X Spray Tan experts, you don’t need to fear orange, streaky disasters.

In just one hour you can be a glowing god or goddess, feeling your very best. We have put together a list of answers to your burning hot questions about spray tanning.

Will a spray tan protect my skin from UV rays?

Unfortunately not. You need to remember that although a spray tan produces a natural looking tan, it is an illusion and will not protect you from UV rays. Spray Tans and even Self Tan products do not contain an SPF and therefore we advise you to wear sun cream, even if its not sunny!

How long does a spray tan last for?

Your tan should last approximately 7 or more days, you can help to make your tan last longer by Moisturising daily. If you want more tips and tricks on how to get a longer lasting tan view our other blog ‘ Prep And Maintain Your Spray Tan’.

How long does a spray tan take?

The whole treatment process of a spray tan including the consultation stage, will be approximately 20-30 minutes long.

Can I have a spray tan, if I have fair skin?

Definitely! Here at John And Ginger we have a variety of solutions and tanning experts, to help choose the correct colour for you.

Do you have to be completely undressed to have a spray tan?

Not at all, you can wear a bikini but remember you will get lines wherever you are covered. We can provide you disposable pants or you can wear your own if you would prefer and don’t be shy if you go topless, remember we have seen it all before!

How instant is the tan?

When you get a spray tan you will leave with what is called a ‘guide colour’ this is a base tan, and exists to help us see where the tan has been applied already. Your spray tan will develop and get darker as the hours go by, when you wash your guide colour off you will then reveal your fully developed sun kissed tan.

Please if you have any more questions feel free to ask, we will be more than happy to answer!
