Tanning Information for Ultimate Results
Preparing for your spray tan
- It is vital to remove all dead skin cells by exfoliating your body the day before your tan with either an exfoliating mitt or body scrub, concentrating on dry areas such as elbows, knees and ankles. This will ensure even application of tan, extend the life of your tan and ensure your tan fades evenly. Exfoliating mitts are available for purchase at Sea Escape Day Spa.
- Hair removal should be performed 24 hours prior to tan application.
- Don't wear any makeup, moisturiser, deodorant or perfume on the day you having your tan applied as this can prevent the tanning solution from colouring the skin.
- Bring loose dark coloured clothing to wear post application process.
Developing your tan
- Here at Sea Escape Day Spa we use VuTan 2 hour solution. You can shower a minimum of 2 hours after the tan application, however for a deeper darker tan, you will ideally keep the tan on for 6-8 hours for fair skin or 8-12 hours for all other skin types.
- Wear loose clothing during developing time as tight clothing, bra straps and tight fitting shoes or sandals can remove tan by rubbing against the skin.
- Don't shower, swim or exercise for at least 6 hours after you've had your tan applied as perspiration and water will remove all trace of the tan - Ensure you keep well away from raindrops too!
Enjoying your tan
- Your tan should last between 5 and 7 days. Here are some tips to help prolong the life of your tan:
- Moisturise daily to avoid patch or flaky skin.
- Swimming in chlorinated water such as pools and spas will reduce the life of your tan.
- The more showers and baths you have, the lighter your skin will become.
- Your spray tan will not protect you from the harmful UV rays of the sun sun, so wearing sun protection is highly recommended.
