Spray tan, also known as sunless tanning is a treatment where a fine mist is sprayed on to the body to produce the same tanned effect similar in appearance to a suntan. We are more and more aware of ageing these days and know very well that staying out in the sun for hours is not going to slow down the ageing process, so a spray tan is the answer. You get a bronze glow and ageless skin, there is no better way, right? Whether you are walking out of winter or walking into winter, you want that bronzed glow all year.
Before your spray tan session, your therapist will discuss the best spray for your skin and very importantly how dark you are planning to go. Always chat to your therapist about any skin allergies before she starts.
It may seem pretty daunting standing stark naked in front of your therapist spraying dark, cold mist on you, but it is really not as bad as you think. A good therapist will always make you feel comfortable and at ease and it only takes a few minutes to spray the body.
If you are having a full body spray tan, you will be given a disposable g-string and a hair net. The spray tan will then commence with your therapist spraying the solution onto your body.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A SPRAY TAN?
You’ve made it and you wait for your new bronzed skin to dry before putting on your loose clothing. There are some important tips to remember to maintain your new tan:
Shower in lukewarm water 8 hours after your spray tan and try to avoid very hot showers, saunas and exercise for a few hours after your spray tan.
After showering, always blot or dab your skin with a towel. By rubbing it, you will rub your tan off.
Moisturise daily with a moisturiser or special post spray tan cream. Your therapist will give you info on the best products to use.
Always take in all the tips and info your therapist gives you on pre and post spray tanning. They are the experts and know exactly what to do to maintain your tan and prolong it.
HOW LONG DOES A SPRAY TAN LAST?
A spray tan will last for approximately 10 days, so a good long time to show off your tan! There is no doubt you love your new tanned skin and once it fades, you will want to return for another session fast.
