HOW DOES SPRAY ON TAN WORK?
The skin is made up of two main layers: the epidermis on the outside and the dermis on the inside. The epidermis is further broken down into two layers: the innermost “stratum basale” and the outermost “stratum corneum”. Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), the active tanning ingredient found in all spray on tan solutions, is a colourless sugar that interacts with the dead skin cells in the stratum corneum of the epidermis to produce a colour change. This colour change generally lasts for approximately 7 -10 days from the initial application.


WHY CHOOSE SPRAY ON TAN?
Spray on Tan is recognised as the safe alternative to tanning in sunlight or using solarium beds which are sources of damaging ultra violet (UV) rays that contribute to skin cancer and premature ageing. Spray on Tan allows you to look good and feel great all year round without the additional risks associated with UV tanning. These Spray on Tan contains a range of botanical herb extracts enhanced with Aloe Vera, Vitamin E & Green Tea which are blended to nourish the skin whilst producing a natural looking, longer lasting tan.

 

IS SPRAY TANNING SAFE?
When a Spray on Tan is done professionally by a trained technician, Spray Tanning is considered to be the safest option and best alternative to sun tanning.

 

WHAT DO I WEAR WHILE BEING SPRAYED?
When getting sprayed you may wear as much or as little as you wish. Most people prefer wearing a G-string in order to get the best coverage; however it is a personal choice. I guarantee to be professional and will act in a respectful manner at all times. I promise not giggle too much if scream at how cold the tan spray is heheh!

 

WHAT DO I WEAR AFTER BEING SPRAYED?
After your Spray Tan, it is best to wear loose fitting clothing that does not cling and affect the quality of your tan. It is also best to wear dark clothing that is easily washable to ensure that any tan solution that rubs onto clothing will not stain.

 

HOW DO I PREPARE MY SKIN FOR THE BEST POSSIBLE SPRAY TAN?
I have a range of products available to help prepare your skin for your spray on tan and also help your tan last as long as possible. feel free to have a chat with me about these products.
It is important when receiving your Spray on Tan that you do not wear any makeup, jewelry or deodorant as these can all affect the application and quality of your tan.
Hair removal such as laser, shaving or waxing is best performed 24hrs before getting sprayed.
I will apply barrier cream to your palms, knees and elbows to help prevent any overspray of these areas. I also provide hair nets and feet pads to help prevent tan getting on those unwanted areas.
Disposable G-strings and bras if you would like to use either or both of those.

 

WILL I HAVE AN UNNATURAL LOOKING TAN?
Typically, the orange tone that may result from the application of Spray on Tan is the result of too much DHA within a solution. Further to this, an orange looking undertone can be caused by too much over-spray or if the spray that is applied to the body is too strong. By ensuring you only use quality professional products like TechnoTan, an orange undertone will not be a risk.

 

IF I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN CAN I GET SPRAYED?
If you have eczema, dermatitis, or psoriasis it is best to patch test your skin before deciding to go ahead with being spray tanned. If you find that you have not had an irritating reaction then it is fine to have a spray tan. It is important to make sure the skin is thoroughly moisturized after the application of the Spray on Tan as it will stop the skin from drying out and will also make the tan last longer.

 

DO I STILL NEED TO APPLY SUNSCREEN?
It is important to remember that Spray on Tan solution does not contain sunscreen and thus will not protect you from the sun’s damaging UV rays. So, if you’re planning to head outside to show off your new glow, be sure to apply some extra sunscreen.

 

HOW LONG WILL MY TAN LAST?
Your tan, depending on your skin type, pre-tan preparation and after tan care, will generally last between 5 to 7 days for fair skin and 10 to 12 days for olive toned skin.

 

HOW LONG AFTER MY TAN CAN I SHOWER?
Generally between 2-4 hours after your tan is applied, depending on the desired outcome. The first shower after a tan should be just a light luke warm rinse just to remove the bronzer from your body. from the following day, shower as normal. Just keep in mind harsh soaps and scrubs are not recommended. We have a range of products available to help extend your tan. Please feel free to chat to us about these.

 

HOW CAN I EXTEND THE LIFE OF MY TAN?
I stock a range of products to help extend the life of your tan. Please let me know if you would like to discuss these.
PLEASE NOTE: Taking a spa or swimming in chlorinated water will reduce the life of your tan.

 

DO YOU APPLY TECHNOTAN TO THE FACE?
Yes, but this is an individual choice. TechnoTan is safe to apply all over the body.

 

ARE THE TAN SOLUTIONS NATURAL?
The tan range I use in salon contains naturally derived and organic ingredients and are paraben and alcohol free. Some synthetic ingredients are used to ensure premium performance and maximum client satisfaction. These formulae are developed to ensure safety and optimum tanning results with solutions to suit all skin types. A very small amount of fragrance is used to give the products a subtle aroma.
