How does it work?
The active ingredient in a spray on tan is a chemical called dihydroxyacetone (DHA.) This chemical reacts with the amino acids on the outer layer of skin which changes its colour. The DHA starts to work within about two hours of the tan application and carries on for twelve hours. Depending on your skin type, an airbrush tan can last for anything up to ten days. The colour you get from a spray tan won’t tan wash off; but it will start to fade as the upper layers of your epidermis wear away naturally.
The Process Starts At Home - Shower and exfoliate your skin well before you come for a spray tan. You won’t be able to shower for around twelve hours after the session, if you want the spray tan to be effective. Shave or wax the day before your treatment. Don’t wear any perfumes, lotions or deodorants which might stop the tanning solution from working by creating a barrier on your skin. Please bring loose dark clothing to the salon, to avoid the tanning solution rubbing off on your clothes
On the day - We will fill out a client consultation with you. You must take off any watches and other jewellery. We will provide disposable underwear and hairnet and talk you through the process before conducting the tan.
