Spray Tan Tips

We’ve put together some of the most common questions that we are asked about spray tanning and our answers.

 

Will I go orange or streaky?

Spray tanning products are now far better and with professional training in the application of these products these problems have been eliminated. As trained professionals our team make sure they match the correct solution to your skin tone, thus eliminating the risk of looking ‘fake’ or ‘orange’. Tan of Nature provides a very natural colour, which will be the envy of all of your friends.

How long does it last?

Your tan will last about 5 to 7 days and will fade naturally as the outer layer of your skin naturally sheds dead skin cells. . After your treatment we recommend you minimise the time you spend in chlorinated water such as swimming pools as chlorine will make your tan fade more quickly.

How should I prepare?

  1. The day before you should remove dead skin cells by doing a full body exfoliation. We can provide an exfoliating body polish by Summer Tan if required.
  2. The day before you should shave/wax. This gives time for pores to close, this prevents tanning solution sitting in the open pores and making dots.
  3. Do not apply deodorants or perfumes as these can prevent the absorption of the tanning solution.
    Any traces of deodorants and perfumes should be removed before the tan is applied, preferably with water and a flannel.
  4. Do not use moisturisers on the day of your tan as they can act as a barrier to the solution.

How long does it take?

The actual spray tan misting process only takes 10-15 minutes.

How does it work?

The Tan of Nature tan works on the outer layer of your skin. The products contain DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) which reacts with the amino acids in your skin and the oxygen in the air causing your skin to turn brown. Different skin types react in different degrees to the solution, so we have a range of strengths that we can use to achieve different depths of tan. The tanning reaction takes will take from 2 to 8 hours to develop.

Is it safe?

Spray Tanning is much safer than risking prolonged over exposure to harmful UVA and UVB rays from the sun. The main component of a spray tan product is DHA. This has been listed with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 1973, and has been used in cosmetic preparations for almost 30 years. DHA is not absorbed through the skin into the body and it has no known toxicity.

What should I wear?

Your should wear whatever you feel comfortable in, most women go topless and wear a dark bikini pant or underwear, and men prefer to wear dark coloured underwear or boxers. We have disposable g-strings available, however it is entirely up to you, many ladies feel more comfortable wearing a bikini. We recommend any clothing worn during the misting process should be dark, although the tanning solution will wash out it is more likely to stain lighter clothing.

What happens if I inhale the tanning spray?

The active ingredient in the spray tan, DHA, is non-hazardous and should cause no adverse reaction in moderate quantities. DHA is even used as a diet supplement in sports nutrition and is non-carcinogenic. Testing indicates that DHA is actually less toxic than aspirin or caffeine.

Will spray tan protect me from getting a sunburn?

No. Your spray tan does not give any additional protection from the sun. You should take the usual precautions when going out into the sun after a spray tan.

How dark will I get?

How dark you skin goes will depend on your skin type and the strength of the solution we use during the treatment. We will advise you on this during your consultation. Also you skin will react more readily with repeat treatments, so top up tans on a regular basis will help you go darker more naturally.

What should I wear after my treatment?

You should wear loose dark clothing, and avoid anything tight as it may produce a rub mark. Avoid wearing socks or tight shoes if possible.

Can I shower after my treatment?

You should not shower during the development period, about 8 hours. Also avoid strenuous exercise which may make you sweat as this can also affect your tan and may cause lighter patches to appear. By showering you will not allow the tan to develop properly and you will be left disappointed about the depth of your shade. 

Can a Spray Tan be removed?

Your tan does not wash off, but is will fade as the outer layer of the skin naturally sheds dead skin cells. You can help the process by exfoliating, however, do not over do it!. The tan will fade naturally over about 1 week.
