Tanning Aftercare



Preparation for your tan 

  • Exfoliate and moisturise the night before your tan (NOT on the day of the tan), paying particular attention to elbows,    knees, ankles and any other problem dry areas.    

  • Paint fingernails and toenails with clear or coloured polish; especially if artificial.

  • Wax / shave at least 24/48 hours prior to your treatment. This allows the pores time to close. Dotting in pores may   appear if not adhered to.

  • DO NOT apply deodorant or perfume - and remove  all make-up prior to your tan.

  • Wear loose dark clothing and flip flops for after your tan.

  • NOT suitable for people with respiratory problems; or those within the first 3 months of pregnancy.

  • Any medical conditions must be disclosed to the therapist prior to your tanning; as permission from your GP may   be required.


After your spray tan:

  • Do not shower or bathe for at least  8  hours. This time changes to  2 - 4 hours when using  the ‘Tonight’s  the Night’  tan  and  1 –3  hours when  using  the  St Tropez  ‘Express’ tan.

  • Do not exercise or swim during development time.

  • Pat yourself dry after showering. DO NOT have a hot oily bath, as this may strip the tan.

  • Apply moisturiser daily to help maintain your tan.


REMEMBER  –  When you wash  your  hands after using the toilet (during the development period) ONLY the wash palms   and NOT the tops of your hands.
