Tips for prepping your skin for a spray tan

Your spray tanning appointment itself is quick and can be completed in as little as 15 minutes which allows you the freedom to prep your skin to suit your schedule. Preparations can be done in advance and will smooth out the skin to give the best base for your spray tanning product and help your tan last longer!

1. Buff away dry skin before treatment with a gentle natural exfoliator. This will make your tan last much longer by revealing new skin.

2. Wax at least 24 hours before treatment, ideally 48 hours before to allow the pores to close.

3. Shave at least 24 hours before treatment and apply a rich moisturiser to replenish dry skin.

4. Moisturise generously the day before, ideally overnight. This will prevent dryness and provide the perfect tanning base.

5. Rinse off any products, perfume, oils, moisturisers and make up before attending your spray tanning appointment.

6. Dark, loose cotton and jersey fabrics and dark underwear without tight waistbands are ideal to wear before and after your spray tan. Some of the guide colour can be easily removed by tight fitting clothing so it is best to keep clothing loose.

7. Take some hair ties along with you if you have long hair to keep the back of your neck and shoulders free.

8. If you have to run any errands after your spray tan, you can take deodorant to apply afterwards once your tan has set.

9. Applying nail polish to fingers and toes will help to protect the nails from any discolouration from the tanning product.

SPRAY TAN AFTER CARE ADVICE

1.Moisturise the skin to help your tan last longer.

2.Use a gentle body wash that doesn’t contain harsh chemicals.

You’ve been to the salon and come out with a gorgeous bronzed body that dazzles in the sunlight – now’s the time to start looking after your sun kissed glow by following a couple of simple rules.

The easiest strategy you can adopt to prolong your fake tan is to try to moisturise the whole of your body with a hydrating cream that feeds the skin with nourishing ingredients and skin-friendly additives. This will slow down the skin’s natural regeneration process and prevent the top layer of skin cells from falling away. This top layer of cells is where the colour from your spray tan lies so it’s vital to keep the skin moisturised so you can maintain an even colour.

Radiance Body Balm is the perfect solution if you want to moisturise the skin. Combining shea butter and coconut oil, this product is an excellent moisturiser and emollient. However, it also contains subtle flecks of fine gold mica that enhance tanned skin with a luminescent sheen that looks radiant, sparkles in the daylight and shimmers under the moonlight.

Another simple way to lengthen the life of your sunless tan is to use a mild body wash in the shower that doesn’t strip the skin of your radiant glow. Opt for Balance Body Wash, which contains silk protein to help retain moisture and you’ll also benefit from the presence of anti-oxidant ginger extract that protects against skin damage…it’s gentle enough to use on your face too.
