After a one on one consultation, our therapist will decide which tan is best suited to you and your desired result. We stock a range of different brands with different colour bases and shades to ensure we can find the right match for each individual skin type. We have both express and overnight tans to make sure we can choose one that will suit your lifestyle. We suggest having your tan 1-2 days before your event for optimal results


Laying the groundwork for your spray tan is almost as important as the skill and expertise of your spray tan consultant.

Proper preparation of your skin will ensure the best possible spray tan results.

Preparing the skin for your tan

Prepping your skin can make the difference for the perfect result.

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

  • Exfoliate before your tanning appointment, paying particular attention to elbows, knees, ankles and problem dry areas.

  • Before your appointment shower and avoid using bar soaps, high pH shower products, oil-based products or in-shower moisturisers. These products may act as a barrier against your skin and can prevent the fast acting tanning agents to develop.

  • Don’t apply moisturiser, perfume, deodorant , makeup or any products before your appointment.


After the tan

  • Wear dark loose clothing; tight clothing or underwear may cause marks. Bring loose-fitting shoes and an umbrella just in case.

  • The most important step after spray tanning - After the time suggested by your beauty therapist, shower quickly for 30 secs, with lukewarm water.

 DO NOT USE USE HOT WATER. It stops the development of tan actives during the development time. 

The brown bronzers will wash away, while the fast tan actives continue to work and deeper. Use plain water, don’t use shower gels, scrubs, shampoos or loofah during the first 24 hours after your treatment.

  • Pat your skin dry. Do not rub or scrub your skin.

  • Moisturize everyday after applying your self tan. 

  • After day 6, exfoliate with a soft body polish on a daily basis, to help your skin absorb even more moisturiser and to remove excess tan in dry areas this also helps the tan fade naturally, rather than in patches.
