What better way to look sun kissed than with a lovely golden Spray Tan, or choose a brown shade for a tan with attitude. A tan that does not disappear when washed off. Also available
a tan that is ready in 2 hours. Wait 2 hours wash off and go. Price £20. Please Consult the colour chart for the perfect shade for you.
I use solutions from the LA Tanning Company. They are both Alcohol and Paraben Free and are enriched with Aloe Vera and White & Green Tea extracts to moisturise and nourish your skin. With a natural colour and excellent wear off, smells great and is a very popular brand, worn by the likes of Claudia Winkleman from Strictly Come Dancing and won Marie Claire's Choice Award for Summer 2010.

The preparing of the skin for a spray tan is so important. Exfoliate and shave any areas the day before the treatment. Not exfoliating could make the dry areas darker, the tan fades down in patches and shaving on the day of the spray could cause small blotches. ( I will apply barrier cream to dry areas, knees, elbow etc Do not moisturise before the tan as this causes a barrier, so your tan will be less intense. Do not apply any perfumes or deodorants. Clean, exfoliated and non moisturised skin will give the best tan. Disposables are provided but should you wish to wear your own underwear, please ensure it is not made of silk, as the products may stain.
*A Patch Test will be required 24-48 hours prior to your appointment if this is your first ever Spray Tan
Should any of the following conditions apply, you will not be able to have a Spray Tan applied:
Asthma or any other type of breathing difficulties (unless a Doctor's note can be provided to say this is ok)
Aggravated skin conditions such as Psoriasis as the solutions will aggravate further
If you are in your first trimester of pregnancy
Open sores and wounds
The tan will take about 10 minutes to completely dry, then dress in loose clothing The tan does transfer to clothing, so black is best. The tan easily washes out of clothing. After the 8 hours developing time(over-night gently shower off the guide colour. 2 hours for Fast Tan. Avoid exercise for 4-6 hours after your tan application.
To prolong the spray tan avoid soaking in the bath, use oil free body moisturisers, as oil based moisturisers strips the tan. Use an enhancer as this will prolong the tan and stop it fading down so quickly. These products I will have for sell, but they can be purchased on the high street. Moisturise daily or use an enhancer. How long the tan lasts varies from person to person, but 5/7 days is usual. After this the remaining tan can be exfoliated off.
Spray tans have no sun protection, so a good sunscreen should be used while exposing the skin to strong sunlight.
