Below you can read our tips on how you can maximise your spray tan for a longer lasting glow.
The two most important parts of a spray tan is having the right pre tan skin preparation and post tan skin care
And even tan requires even skin texture. Ensure to exfoliate your skin in the days beforehand and avoid using oily products.

After being tanned moisturise daily to slow down the skin shedding process resulting in a longer lasting tan.
Between initial spray application and showering avoid any activity that may result in perspiration as this may affect the end result of your tan.

How long will the spray tan last? – depending on your skin type, pre tan preparation and after tan care a tan will last 5-7 days on fair skin and 10 days on olive skin.



You can extend your tan by following the tips above.
When you first shower after your tan you will notice the initial bronzer washing off, this is not your tan.

Shower 2hrs after your spray tanning appointment.
If you can not get to a shower within 2hrs you must shower within 4hrs of your spray tan appointment to avoid going too dark.



Thankfully modern spray tanning solutions are no longer orange based.
Tans are different pigment based and these help to stop the orange hues
Most commonly we use tans that are green based. Green neutalises red tones
We do use several spray tanning solutions and we can asses your skin tone to see which formula is best going to suit you



Yes it will when you follow the simple steps of post tan care.
Moisturising the skin daily will help make the tan last longer, as well as help it to fade evenly.
Do not use lotions or creams on your skin which contain alpha hydroxyl acids (aha’s) or glycolic acid as they tend to exfoliate the skin.

To help the tan fade evenly, exfoliate every 3 days with a tan-specific product.
We can recommend different body scrubs, ask our technicians at the time of tanning



Spray tan solutions use a lot of natural ingredients.
If you have an inflamed skin condition or open wounds then spray tanning should be avoided.
If you are pregnant – ​Product testing indicates that the DHA does not penetrate the skin, nor enter the bloodstream.​ However, as a precaution, we suggest you seek advice from a doctor, prior to being sprayed in the first trimester.
When we are tanning you we do like to have a source of natural airflow.
We cannot apply a tan where there is a breeze or a fan in close proximity
Yes we can apply spray tan to your face. You will have a chance to close your eyes and not to breathe for a few seconds while we quickly mist the solution over your facial area.


Before Your Spray Tan

Spray Tan Skin Prep is the key to a perfect tan!
If you shave or wax, do it at least 24 hours before your spray tan.
Exfoliate the day before and very lightly on the day.
On the day; try to avoid wearing any moisturisers, perfumes, makeup or deodorants as these can affect the tanning solution and reduce its effectiveness.
If you have had to apply body care products – Shower before your tan to remove them.
Deodorant affects how the tan adheres to your skin and you will have patchy armpits if it is not all removed.
When showering ensure you do not use a moistusing body wash or oil.
We want the skin not to have any layers of product on it.

Be sure to tell us the reason for your tan
If it’s a 10-day holiday you may want to go a deeper shade so it lasts longer, or if it’s for a special occasion or even your wedding you may want to stay lighter so it looks as natural as possible in pictures.
Our recommendation is for all brides to have a pre wedding trial so we can see what depth your tan will be and we can adjust the tan if needed when you are having the tan done for the big day
We will also keep a note of the tan we used and the intensity of the spray.
The tan can be adjusted by adding an extra layer of spray tan or avoid tanning the face.

Tan any time at your convenience

Because we are a mobile service we can accommodate you for later appointments.
Do not stress about having get to the a tanning salon and stress about the tan being affected by rain, humidity or even your seat belt when you are driving home.
Having a tan done at home means you can control the developing of the tan
