Tanning made easy.
We grabbed our spray tan guru and salon manager Leanne for a quick chat to share her tanning secrets with you.
1. Preparation is key!
Before UV or tanning rid your skin of dead cells by buffing gently all over with a mitt and scrub. This will give your tan a smooth base and help your tan last longer.
2. This outfit will look better with a tan.
When coming for a spray tan remember to wear loose baggy dark clothing. Skinny jeans look great, but your tan when you take them off will not. Avoid tight clothing until your tan is fully developed.
3. I don't tan naked, i wear a lotion.
Dry skin does not tan. It takes 3 minutes for the melanin in your skin to start to tan on UV beds. Adding one of our lotions, chosen because we believe they are the best in the industry helps speed up this process. These lotions contain vital vitamins to keep the skin hydrated during, and after the tanning process.
4. Tanning times.
When building up your tan using UV beds we recommend coming every 3 days until your goal colour is achieved. Our reception team will help you choose your length of tanning time based on your skin type.
After the tanning bed turns off your skin will continue to tan and produce melanin for at least another 12 hours. It is important to keep your skin hydrated during this time. We recommend Fox Tan Elixer available in our salon.
Happy Tanning x
