For the Best Spray Tan results

Recommendations of when to do your tan

If the tan is for an event, we recommend a minimum of 48hrs ahead of the actual day. This will allow the tan to settle and develop to its optimal colour.

If you are going on holiday, we recommend the day before you depart. We also recommend taking an extender on your holiday with you to maintain and extend the longevity of your tan.

Before your Appointment

For the best results prepping the skin prior to application is vital and can impact the end result and lifespan of the tan. Following the steps below will ensure you are ready to get the best result!

  1. To remove dead skin cells and other product residue, shower and exfoliate with an exfoliating mitt in the days leading up to the application of tan.
  2. Wax or shave 24 hours prior to the spray tan.
  3. Do not apply moisturisers, body butters or oils to the skin prior to application.
  4. Do not wear deodorant, lotions, perfumes or essential oils before or directly after the application.
  5. Wear loose and dark clothing along with thongs or slides to and from your appointment.

After your Appointment

Just as vital as the prep is the post care. Following these tips helps ensure the development of the tan is seamless and the lifespan of the tan is longer.

  1. Do not touch your body while your tan is drying.
  2. Do not get the body & hands wet during the first 4-8hrs hours or before you do your first rinse; you may wipe the palm of your hands with a damp cloth to remove excess tan. This should be done carefully.
  3. Avoid activities that will make you perspire excessively for at least 24 hours.
  4. After the waiting period has passed (your therapist will advise the timing), shower using warm water ONLY and do not wash your hair. Pat dry.
  5. Please note that after the shower the 'show colour' will come off and you may feel like you have lost your tan. This is normal.
  6. Once fully developed (next day) shower as normal. 
  7. Perfumes, deodorants and makeup may also now be used but avoid directly onto the skin.
  8. Moisturise the skin daily with MoroccanGlow, Butter or Luminous 3-1 to prolong the life of your tan and ensure an even fade off.
