TOP TIPS FOR A LONG LASTING TAN

The Days Before Your Tan

  • A thorough full body scrub is essential to get rid of any dead skin cells on the surface of your skin, leaving you feeling (and looking) great. Exfoliate the night before the tan too (I recommend using exfoliating gloves)
  • Ensure you moisturise everyday up until the day before tan, the more moisturised your skin is the better is will take, last and fade evenly
  • If you wax please ensure it is done at least 48 hours prior to your spray tan. If you are shaving then this needs to be done at least 24 hours before. Please avoid shaving for at least 48 hours after as this may take some of your tan off along with the hair
  • Thoroughly moisturise your body after your scrub. This will help to get rid of any dry skin that you have and will make sure your tan is even and long lasting

The Day of Your Tan

  • If possible have a shower 1-2 hours before your tan but bathe in WATER only. Rub yourself with either a flannel, sponge or hands. This is to make sure there is no residue left on your skin from yesterday’s mega moisturising session. Any oils and moisturisers on your skin can cause the tan to streak
  • Don’t wear any deodorant, moisturiser or make up before your spray tan. Moisturisers, deodorant and make up act as a barrier which can stop the spray tan solution getting through and deodorant can sometimes turn the armpits green. I have baby wipes available for your use if you arrive with make-up or deodorant on so please don’t worry if you don’t have time to remove before your appointment!
  • Don’t wear massive pants! Make sure the knickers that your wear are SMALLER than the pants you regularly wear…especially if you are being tanned before a holiday
  • Bring loose clothing and flipflops after your tanning session. Although any excess spray tan solution dries out on your skin, the tan needs to “set” and the process will take about an hour. It is best to bring or wear lose clothing and open toe shoes to ensure the tan does not rub off. Although it won’t stain, try to avoid wearing silk, nylon, lycra or wool immediately after tanning as this can absorb the product quicker

Immediately following Your Tan

  • Don’t wash your hands under the tap immediately after your tan. Nor should you go home and do the dishes (what a great excuse to totally relax on the sofa!). If you get yourself wet, the tan will stop developing in that area and you’ll end up patchy. If you’re concerned that there may be tan on the palms of your hands, just rub baby wipes lightly over your palms
  • If you can get away with it…don’t put your bra back on unless you want to end up with strap marks. The tan will wear away in any areas that are rubbed, so try to leave your bra off, if you can’t then a strapless bra will be the best bet
  • Try to avoid any activity that may cause you to perspire, e.g. exercise, sauna, steam or sun bed

The Day/s After Your Tan

  • Most spray tans develop over 6-8 hours. For best results try to leave your tan on overnight. Shower the following morning and gently rub yourself down with water and your hands. Only use shower gel where necessary. The guide colour will wash away and you’ll be left with the glowing tan
  • Pat, don’t rub when drying yourself with the towel after your shower, be gentle. Vigorous rubbing WILL rub the tan off
  • When the tan starts to fade after about 5 days you do need to exfoliate to ensure it comes off nice and evenly
  • Allow 48 hours before waxing or shaving
  • Want to extend the life of your tan? Spray tans give a great base to use self tanners at home to prolong the life of your tan. I do stock Nouvatan “at home products” that match the tan in case you want to top up any areas
  • Keep your skin well moisturised, especially after every shower and evening and if possible try to use shower gels with added moisturisers, harsh shower gels can also strip your tan.
  • Please be aware that swimming in chlorinated water or salt water will also fade your spray tan, can cause streaking and diminish the length of your tan
  • Please ensure you use sunscreen when in the sun. There is a misconception that a spray tan acts as a base tan, this is not true. Ensure suncream is oil free or mineral oil free
  • Depending on your own personal activities and skin type, the tan lasts approximately 5-10 days. With follow up applications, you can maintain the tan indefinitely
