Before Spray Tan
What should you do before going for a Spray Tan?
A scrub will ensure that the color is smooth and evenly divided and more importantly, your skin will stay brown for much longer. The dead skin cells are removed by scrubbing. The ones who are still attached will remain like that for much longer and will therefore allow you to keep your tan longer. Caution: Make sure you do not forget any parts while scrubbing!
Wear dark, loose-fitting clothing that does not cause any friction on your skin. On light (not delicate) clothing the tanning ingredients can give off a light color (washable). The active ingredient works for about 12 hours and thus - in places where your clothes are rubbing on your skin - your brown complexion could be prematurely rubbed off. Don't wear tight clothes, shoes or socks.
- No parfum, deodorant or body lotion on your Spray Tan day
- Shaving: 1 day before the Spray Tan
- Don't use razors with a gel strip
- Waxing: 1 to 2 days before Spray Tan
- If you have a special event, have your Spray Tan 1 or 2 days before
During your Spray Tan
What should you pay attention to during your Spray Tan?
During the Spray Tan treatment you can decide what you want to wear. If you want to wear a bikini or a swimsuit, you can do so safely. If you prefer a full body coverage then you may be naked or topless. The choice is entirely up to you (or the person doing the spraytanning). If you do not want any straps, but you find it uncomfortable to stand half naked? Just wear your bra or bikini top and put the straps down.
We certainly advice - as 99% of our clients are doing - to have your Spray Tan nude as to achieve a full, streak-free brown complexion.
After your Spray Tan
How can you keep your golden tan the longest?
Immediately after the Spray Tan
- Wear loose-fitting, dark clothing as indicated above
- No delicate fabrics (silk / leather / nylon / ...) to prevent discoloration
- No shower for at least 4 to 8 hours (depending on the mix)
- No makeup for the first hours after the Spray Tan except lipstick and mascara
- No sport until eight hours after the Spray Tan
- Wait at least 24 hours before shaving
Over the next days
- Apply a bodylotion 1/2 times a day
- Don't scrub (unless to remove the Tan)
- Don't swim for a long time in chlorinated water
- After showering, pat the skin dry with a towel

How long does a Spray Tan last?
The result remains approximately 7 to 11 days visible, then the tan will gradually and smoothly fade and the spray tan should be repeated if desired.
How long you will be able to enjoy your Spray Tan will depend on the tan used, your lifestyle, your skin (some people shed skin cells faster than others) and whether you moisturize in the shower or right after (non-oil based).
Please also follow the instructions as seen above to enjoy your bikini-ready color longer!
Is Spray Tanning safe?
The treatment is absolutely safe and has no side effects. The tanning lotion is approved by the FDA (Federal inspection of food, drugs, cosmetics and medical devices). The active component in the lotion is DHA. When the lotion is applied to the skin it causes a reaction with the pigments of the skin, which will slowly bronze. The degree thereof depends on the amount of pigment in the skin. Especially for people with a very white skin, this method is an absolute godsend. A great tan is now possible for everyone.
Is sunbathing allowed after a Spray Tan?
Can one be exposed to UV radiation (tanning) or to the sun after a Spray Tan? Yes, without a doubt. Although repeated exposure to UV rays increases the risk of skin cancer, one doesn't need to be too afraid if protective skin creams are used.
Who cannot have a Spray Tan?
A Spray Tan is not recommended for people with psoriasis, eczema, cuts or grazes and during the first three months of pregnancy.
Normally the product can not cause any allergies. The use of the product would on the contrary cause a positive reaction by reducing solar allergies.
Do you Spray Tan men?
Of course men are more than welcome.
The different types of men who come for a Spray Tan are as numerous as the reasons for tanning: men who want their muscles to show (more), men who have an upcoming event such as a wedding, and men who just want to get some color in the winter.
Bear in mind that in order to get a good tan and keep it for an extended period of time, men should also take into account the 'rules' of tanning, such as scrubbing, etc.
Will I be orange from a Spray Tan?
There are so many misconceptions about spray tanning which stem from the early days of spray tanning when DHA (the self-tanning ingredient) was new.
Companies in the early days of tanning made the mistake of adding too much DHA in their solutions or adding other ingredients such as carotene. Nowadays with professional Tanning brands this does not happen anymore.
