To help you get the best fake tan we have put together some tips to help you prepare your skin at home the day before your Salon Spray Tan, to ensure you get the best results possible and your tan lasts even longer with even fade.
Remove any unwanted hair the day before your spray tan to allow pores plenty of time to close, tan in your pores will leave you with a dotty finish.
We recommended you paint your nails and toe nails, particularly if you have acrylic extensions! Not only will this leave you feeling even more pampered, but it will also prevent the chance of your nails and cuticles from being stained.
Buff away dead skin cells with a body scrub or purchase a Body Scrub to reveal the ultimate smooth base for your tan. Pay particular attention to dry areas such as elbows, knees and feet.
Then use a body balm to rehydrate your skin and leave your skin feeling silky and smooth.
We have found that Dove bath and body products do not work well with Spray Tan and should be avoided before and after your treatment, so that your tan lasts as long as it should.
On the day of your spray tan, we advice you not to apply deodorant, perfume or body lotion as these act as a barrier and can stop the tan from developing properly.
We provide disposable pants for during your tan, but if you wish too, you can wear your own or a bikini. Please bring dark loose clothing to your appointment for after your tan, and whilst it develops.
There are plenty of things that you can do at home to increase the longevity of your spray tan. With the right aftercare, you can expect your tan to last 5-7 days.
Did you know that using your normal shower gel after you have had a spray tan can strip it away? To get the most out of your tan opt for a gentle pH balanced soap such as a Body Wash from our self-tan brands, your therapist will provide you with a sample of this. If you are someone who is a lover of spray tans or Self tanning, then we advice you purchase a specialised Body Wash for tanning in our store. The mild shower gel will keep your skin refreshed and nourished without affecting the longevity of your tan.
