Getting the most out of your spray tan means 2 things...


  1. Having the tan last a long time
  2. Having the tan fade well


To achieve these goals - you need to follow the advice below...



  • Shave 24 - 48 hours before your appointment.
  • Shower and Exfoliate before you arrive for your appointment.
  • Do not apply any products / makeup / deodorant to your skin after you shower.
  • Wear loose fitting - dark coloured clothing to avoid disturbing the tan after the application.
  • Shower after 2 hours if using the 2 Hour Tan
  • Shower after 6 hours if using the 6 Hour Tan (  'Original Tan' )



  • Moisturise your entire body after every shower (while you skin is still damp).
  • Do not exfoliate for the duration of your tan.
  • Avoid swimming for extended periods.
  • Use gentle shower products and pat dry after you shower.


NOTE: Anything you do which acts to increase your skins rate of exfoliation, will reduce the life of your tan.
