For our spray tans we love the brand Norvell – the number one spray tan brand in the US!
Not only does Norvell give the most natural-looking colour, it is 100% Vegan, paraben-free, gluten-free and cruelty-free.
When you arrive for your appointment, your Spray Tan Technician will carry out a consultation with you to help you choose best tan for your skin type. You will achieve the same results whether you opt for a rapid tan or 8 hour tan.
Rapid Tans let you choose how dark you want to go by how long you leave it until you shower. With the first shower, you only wash off with water alone, and after 8 hours you can have a normal shower. The formulation contains fast-acting ingredients that absorb quickly into the skin while intelligent shade technology allows you to select your depth of colour:
- For a light, sunless tan shower after 1 – 1.5 hours
- For a medium sunless tan leave on for 2-3 hours
- For a dark sunless tan leave on for 3-4 hours
You will have a light colour after giving it a water rinse and the self-tan actively will continue to work, developing and deepening into your chosen tan. Formulated with skin conditioning agents and vegetan premium, a naturally derived DHA with melanin technology.
The classic tan develops in 6-8 hours, and with a choice of 3 colours that can be mixed if needed, it’s guaranteed to give you the perfect colour.
What should I do for the best results?
Your spray tan will last much longer if you prepare your skin prior to your appointment.
If you don’t prepare your skin then it’s very likely you’ll get a spray tan which is patchy, uneven and won’t last long at all!
How to get your skin ready for the Tan
You can find everything you need to prepare for your spray tan for sale at our salon.
Moisturising daily before your spray tan will prevent dryness and provide the perfect tanning base.
Use an exfoliating mitt to apply a Body Scrub in the shower or bath to remove dead skin cells and smooth your skin in preparation for your Spray Tan.
Our Body Scrub contains anti-oxidant vitamin E which helps to hydrate and nourish your skin and improve its condition so your Spray Tan will last longer on the skin’s surface.
How to exfoliate
- – Put some exfoliator onto your glove and exfoliate using firm circular and even strokes
- – Make sure you cover the entire skin surface so you don’t get patchy uneven results from your Spray Tan
- – Concentrate on the problem areas such as knees, elbows and any other areas where you have rough skin
The skins top layer (and therefore your spray tan) only lasts between 5-7 days due to the natural turnover of cells.
Using a body scrub with an exfoliating glove ensures your skin cells are all at the beginning of their cycle before your Spray Tan, so your tan will last longer.
Otherwise, your skin cells will start falling off within a few days, leaving you with a patchy spray tan
Remember to shave or wax at least 24hrs prior to your appointment
On the day of your Spray Tan
Do not wear any of the following as they can create a barrier:
Bring loose dark clothing and flip flops to wear immediately after your spray tan.
Tie up your hair if you can and remove any jewellery.
If you put on tight items of footwear/clothing, socks, trainers, boots, or belts after your spray tan we will not be able to guarantee your spray tan as these may cause your tan to rub off.
Please remember to bring an umbrella it’s raining!
