MOROCCAN SPRAY TANNING
Preparation essential to achieve a professional spray tan. The main goal of your prep is to remove excess oils and dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin. This leaves perfecty primed skin, ready to absorb the tan solution.
These are the steps you should follow prior to you appointment with us.
If you are booking in advance of your treatment you can prepare you skin over this period by exfoliating, when in the bath or shower, regularly. Using a moisturising body lotion every day will also help. The product you use should preferably be non oily.
Any hair removal should be done at last 24 hours prior to the application of your tan
ON THE DAY OF YOUR TAN
Take a shower and exfoliate the skin, again with non oily products , paying special attention to the hands, feet, knees and elbows.
All moiturisers, deoderantss, perfumes, make-up etc must NOT be applied anywhere, prior to your spray tan. These products interfere with the absorbtion of the tan.
What you wear during your spray tan is entirely up to you. Most ladies wear a pair of old briefs. Remember what ever you wear will get the tan solution on it and whilst it washes out of most fabrics it may stain more delicate ones.
Wear loose dark clothing. Skin tight tops, jeans etc are not suitable to wear after you have been sprayed.
DURING THE APPLICATION OF YOUR SPRAY TAN
The tan is applied using a spray tan machine and gun.
These are some helpful tips for you to follow during your session with us.
Although our purpose built spray tan rooms have extraction units there will always be a minimal over spray. For this reason we have face masks and nose plugs available should you wish to use them.
We will supply you with diposable protection for your hair and the soles of your feet.
We will also apply a barrier cream to stop over development of the tan on your hands, feet, knees and elbows.
Disposable briefs are also available.
Face masks will need to be removed to spray the face and you will need to hold your breath a few seconds.
It is essential that you let your tan dry before getting dressed.
Maintaining your spray tan prolongs the life of the the tan by offsetting the natural fading caused by the skins renewal process. The following tips are for your guidance once you have had your spray tan.
Dress in your loose dark clothing after the tan has completely dried.
Do not touch your body whilst your tan is drying. This can lead to finger prints on your skin!
Avoid activities that make you sweat. This can lead to your tan streaking. Avoid sports, exercise, housework, etc.
Although our MoroccanTan has short rinse off times, do not swim or use saunas and hot tubs until 12 hours after your tan has been applied. Please note that chlorine in swimming pools will cause your tan to fade quicker if you are in them for extended periods.
After showering do not rub yourself dry, use a dabbing motion.
Moisturise daily to prolong the life of your tan. Complimenting MoroccanTan products are available at the salon. ask your therapist for details.
Do not use lotions or creams on your skin that contain Alpha Hydroxyl Acids (AHA's) or Glycolic Acid as they exfoliate the skin. Use a neutralizing pH body wash.
