Spray Tanning Information

Why Spray Tan?

These days it is possible to look fabulous with out damaging your skin in the sun with the assistance of a spray tan for any occasion.

It could be a wedding, school formal / balls, birthday party or holiday or just because you want that gorgeous warm glow of tanned skin!

There is nothing that I know of that can make you feel healthier and in good shape faster than a spray tan- it just does!

Here at Pamper You most clients that get spray tans have full body tans, but you can just get your legs or shoulder and arms sprayed, depending on what you are wanting.

What's in the Spray tanning solution and how does it work?

The spray tanning solution contains DHA which is a colourless natural active ingredient that reacts with the amino acids and keratin protein of the epidermis (outer layer) of the skin to create an instant artificial healthy looking tan.

The solution is:

  • alcohol free
  • fragrance free
  • dries quickly
  • fades evenly after approximately 4-5 days
  • Pamper You currently uses Black Magic Vibe Evolution 2,4 or 6 hour tanning solution. A gorgeous solution that is brown based giving a dark natural looking colour. With the Vibe the longer it is left on the darker it develops. Even for a 2 hour turnaround you get a great colour. I have tried it and love it!

Preparation for a Spray Tan

To get the most from your Spray Tan I would recommend the following:

  • To exfoliate with an exfoliation mitt or loofa in the shower to get rid of old dead skin on the surface.
  • Get your waxing (or shaving) completed the day before your Spray tan (make an appointment with Pamper You) as this give the pores a chance to recover or there is a chance the solution will get into them and they could appear as brown dots.
  • Make sure you don't wear antiperspirant when you come for your tan as your underarms can go green when you have the tanning solution applied.
  • Have make up and moisturiser free skin prior to tanning.
  • We have disposable G strings to wear for your spray tan for your convenience, or you can wear your togs if you want traditional "lines" to show. For the ladies, you are welcome to have a naked tan if you so wish to.
  • For men, we require undies or togs to be worn please.
  • Bring some loose dark clothes to wear after your spray tan as tight clothes can rub the tan off where it rubs your skin, and dark so it doesn't show on your clothes. The solution does however come off very easily in the wash.

After Care

To make your tan last I would recommend:

  • Wait up to 6 hours (or less for a lighter tan) for the tan to fully develop before having a shower.
  • Do not swim, bathe, or sweat heavily for 6 hours after your tan.
  • Use a good moisturiser (one with DHA added is good) after every shower to stop your skin drying out and thus your precious tan flaking off.
  • Don't exfoliate or use abrasive products after tan application.

How long will my Spray Tan last?

A Spray tan will probably last 4-5 days before you notice it wearing off, but as mentioned in the After Care paragraph it will last longer if you use a moisturiser after showering everyday and try not to use anything that is rough that will exfoliate your tan!

And lastly just ENJOY the luxury of gorgeous looking skin. There is nothing that gives you instant gratification like a spray tan. It's almost magical!
