Our Ten Top Q & A's On Tanning
As a tan is topical you will need to do all your hair removal the day before a tan. Give your body a really good scrub with an exfoliating mitt to get rid of the dead skin cells and any old tan, focusing especially around knees ankles hands and elbows. Exfoliating your skin thoroughly will help your tan to last longer.
PLEASE NOTE: Do’nt wear any moisturiser, make-up or deodorant when coming for your tan.
We recommend wearing loose, comfortable dark clothing. However if the tan gets on your clothes it will wash out. During your tan you will be offered a disposable g-string to wear but if you would like to wear your swimmers you are welcome to. You can also be sprayed naked if you wish. It’s up to you.
Please don’t wear your jewellery for your tan as you will have to take it off anyway.
You might want to bring a towel for your car seat to avoid the tan getting on the fabric.
You can not put your bra back on after treatment until it is washed off so you might not want to plan a shopping trip out afterwards.
If it is raining bring an umbrella as you can not get the tan wet for two hours after .
If it is a hot day make sure you stay cool so you don’t sweat your tan off. Somewhere with air conditioning is ideal.
After two hours you may shower to wash off the bronzer. You will continue to develop up to 12 hours after this time so if you don’t look dark after a shower don’t worry as its still developing. When showering don’t rub hard at your skin and avoid lengthy showers or baths. Use a PH balanced body wash when showering, no soap. Pat your skin dry and moisturise after your tan to help prolong it.
SALON TEN recommends you get your tan done 2 days prior to your event to give it time to settle on your skin.
A lot of people prefer to get a tan before the go on holidays. Totally fine, we know you want to feel your best, we just like to let people to know that if you plan to be hanging in the pool that the chlorine will eat the tan off your skin. A quick dip is fine.
Testing has shown that DHA does not penetrate the skin, nor enter the blood stream, therefore, it appears safe to spray pregnant women. As a precaution we suggest clients who are pregnant to get permission from their doctor.
For women who are breastfeeding, ensure you wipe over the nipples before breastfeeding. If you need to feed before the two hour window before a shower we would recommend you express.
Yes we recommend it. Tanning solution contains no sunsreen or protection from the sun. It just looks great!
Our tan is a true 2 hr tan, we recommend leaving your tan on for 2 hours (do not exceed 4 hours). As it is a concentrated solution it may over develop on the skin if left on for too long, this will cause the tan to look more golden/orange.
Your spray tan will last between 7 to 10 days if maintained properly by having short showers, patting the skin dry ( don’t rub) and moisturising afterwards.
If you have sensitive skin we are happy to do a patch test for you 24 hours before to determine wherever the tanning solution is right for your skin.
