Preparing for your spray tan
To achieve the best result and make your tan last longer:
Shower and exfoliate , paying attention to rough, dry areas like knees, elbows, ankles and the tops of the feet.
Wax and shave at least 24 hours before your appointment (if waxing occurs on the day of the spray tan, the tan can stick to those areas and go quite dark)
Don’t wear any perfume, deodorant, make-up and moisturiser (this will create a slight barrier on the skin)
Wear loose dark clothing for after your tan - no tight and no white!
After tan care:
The aftercare of an Aussie Bombshell tan is just as important as the preparation. To get the most wear from your tan:
Avoid activities that cause perspiration before showering.
Do not get the skin wet.
Shower after 2.5-4 hours depending on the intensity of the tan required and personal developing time
After showering pat the skin dry with towel and avoid rubbing the skin.
Moisturise twice daily.
How long does it take to have a spray tan?
Most consultants should take no longer than 15mins to complete a spray.
How long does the spray tan take to develop?
Aussie Bombshell Sunless Spray Tan should be left on between 2.5 and 4 hours, depending on the intensity of the tan required. We recommend that clients have a shower no earlier than 2.5 hours after being sprayed to ensure enough colour variation on the skin. Once showered, the tan will tan a further 24 hours to develop to its full intensity.
Why can’t you wear moisturiser, deodorant, perfume or make-up to your spray tan appointment?
Any of these products create a barrier on the skin that will prevent the spray tan from sticking to the skin. These barriers can also make the spray tan appear green when sprayed directly onto the skin due to a chemical reaction between the barrier and the tan solution.
Will the spray tan stain my clothes?
Most spray tans contain a lot of bronzers that will wash out of your clothes in the machine. It is recommended that you wear loose dark clothing to your spray tan appointment to minimise tan transfer.
I look very dark after having a spray tan. Should I be concerned?
No. The initial colour sprayed on the skin, is a guide for the technician to see where they have sprayed onto the body. Most of this residue will wash off when you have a shower.
Does sunless tanning protect you from the sun?
No, sunless spray tan does not protect against UV rays. Sunscreen is still required when outdoors after having a spray tan.
Can I get a spray tan if I’m pregnant?
This is personal choice. DHA – the active ingredient in spray tan is sugar-based and non-toxic in nature and the spray tan itself does not absorb into the bloodstream. It is recommended that you wear a mask and not have your face sprayed to reduce any inhalation of the product. Like anything during your pregnancy, if you are unsure, please consult your specialist before considering a spray tan.
Can I get a spray tan if I’m breast-feeding?
Yes! Spray tanning while breast-feeding is completely fine. The spray tan solution does not absorb into the blood stream or affect the milk supply. Ask your technician to avoid spraying onto the nipple area, or wear a bra/bikini top/disposable nipple covers whilst tanning.
How long does a spray tan last?
Depending on individual skin type and how well the client looks after their tan beforehand and afterwards, most Aussie Bombshell Sunless Spray Tans last between 5-7 days. Ensure post-tan you keep your skin moisturised, and if you are travelling on aircraft stay well hydrated on your journey.
However some of our happy clients have told us that their tan has lasted nearly two weeks!
What happens if I sleep in my spray tan?
If you leave your tan on longer than your technician advises, you run the risk of the tan over developing on your skin and possibly turning orange as a result of this. Make sure your client understands that the personal developing time that you give them is crucial in gaining the perfect sunless spray tan.
There is no longer a need to sleep in a spray tan, and leaving an express formula on longer than 4 hours almost guarantees that the tan will turn out looking fake.
