How does spray tanning work

The active ingredient is dihydroxyacetone (DHA) which causes a chemical reaction with the amino acids on the outer most layer of the skin. This reaction causes the colour of the skin to change, producing a beautiful natural tan.

Is spray tanning safe?

Yes! This is the safest way to tan. Using sunbeds and staying out too long in the sun can cause skin cancer.

I have never had a spray tan before, what should I expect?

On my arrival you will fill in a client record card, this is to give you an initial consultation. All equipment will be set up whilst you get changed into whatever you feel comfortable then pop a dressing gown on.

To protect the soles of your feet from discolouring with the tanning solution I will give you some ‘sticky feet’ to stand on which stick to the bottom of your feet, these will be placed on the floor before you step into the tent. You will also be asked to put your hair up and remove any jewellery. I may ask you to put a little moisturiser onto dry areas as this will act as a barrier and will stop the tanning solution mist from creating uneven dark patches.

When being sprayed I will start with your back and ask you to then rotate round to enable us to spray the sides and front to create an all over even tan.  Whilst spraying you will feel cold air coming from the machine and will feel slightly damp.

Can anyone have a spray tan?

Most people are suitable to have a spray tan. It is recommended that pregnant women in the first trimester, those with severe asthma or with very sensitive skin refrain from spray tanning. However, if you are unsure, please contact us.

I am diabetic, is spray tanning OK for me?

DHA is a chemical derived from glycerin and was first used in the treatment of diabetes, as some diabetics are better able to tolerate DHA than glucose in their treatment! So basically, yes you can have a sunless spray tan.

Is it OK for people of any age to spray tan?

Yes it is. However, I require the signature and presence of the parent or guardian for those under 18. Also, I require that they are clothed in either swim trunks for males or bikini for females (or equivalent clothing).

Is tanning at home messy?

No not at all. I provide a large pop up tent that you stand inside whilst being sprayed. No overspray will go anywhere other than on the inside of the tent.

Does the process take long?

No, it will usually take about 20 minutes from start to finish including setting up the equipment and tent, filling out a client record card for you and then of course the tan itself.

How long will my tan last?

This depends on your skin type, how well you look after your tan once applied but also how well you prepare for your tan but generally it will last between 7-10 days.  However, we cannot offer a guarantee as everyone is different.  Please see the Do's & Dont's leaflet on the Spray Tanning page.What should I wear after my tanning session?

I would strongly advise that you wear dark, loose clothing. We suggest wearing an old dressing gown for a few hours after the application. This will help to make sure your tan doesn't rub off before it has time to develop.

Can I shower straight away?

I would strongly suggest that you leave it at least 8 hours before you shower, if you do not your tan will not be as dark and will not last as long. We would also recommend that you shower rather than bathe for the same reasons.

When I shower will my tan wash off?

You will notice that when showering the colour guide will be rinsed away. This is normal, and will reveal a stunning natural looking tan. It is not your tan washing off! 

How do tanning/pamper parties work?

Simple, you get a few friends together for a girl’s night in. I will come round at the time you have requested and simply tan everyone. You get your tan FREE and each of your friends gets over a 20% discount off the original price.
