Advice On Mobile Spray Tanning


Preperation

Exfoliation is one of the most important factors in preparing your skin for a spray tan.
Thoroughly moisturise the day before your tan is to be applied.
Do not use oil or oil based products Johnson Baby lotion is great.
This is to remove dead skin and provide a smooth, new surface for your tan.
Exfoliating helps to promote an even coverage and lengthens the duration of the tan.
Make sure you pay particular attention to elbows, ankles and knees.
Shave 24 hours before your tan and wax at least 48 hours prior to your tan (this allows pores to close in time) and moisturise the night before your application.
Refrain from eyelash tinting 12 hours before as it may react with the DHA.
Remove contact lenses during your spray tanning session.
Remove make-up, moisturiser, perfume and deodorant before your application as
these can act as a barrier.
Do not use highly moisturised soap.
Do not have a spray tan if you are pregnant due to varying skin pigment that occurs at this time.
Paint nails and toenails, especially if false.
It is recommended that you wear dark loose fitting clothing.
Solution washes out of most clothing very easily but may stain nylon and lycra materials;
therefore dark coloured underwear is recommended.
Be careful after your tanning appointment of wearing long boots, as these can make your tan
patchy on your legs, and avoid any tight fitting clothing. Try not to touch yourself during development time.
I will show you your hands are clear of tan after treatment, any marks on your hands after this is due to touching
the developing tan.
Be aware that once this has developed nothing will remove it.


Aftercare

Leave your tan for at least 8 hours and overnight if possible,
before showering or taking a bath. This allows your tan to develop
Avoid wearing socks or shoes after your tanning session as sweating can inhibit the
development of your tan. Sandals are a good choice.
Avoid applying moisturisers or deodorants until after your first shower or bath
Avoid wearing tight clothing for at least 5 hours, as these will cause the tan to rub off
during the developing stage
All swimming, showering and vigorous exercise must be avoided for at least 5 hours
as this can inhibit the development of your tan
Do not shave until 12 hours after your treatment
Do not sit on light coloured fabrics until you have showered or taken a bath as the
colour guide can cause discolouration
Remember. When you take a shower or a bath you will see some colour wash off. Don’t worry.
This is quite normal as it is only the colour guide that I use when the tan is applied.
You will be left with a gorgeous tan.


Maintaining Your Tan

It is recommended you follow these general guidelines to maintain your tan:
Moisturise daily to extend the tan.
Avoid long hot baths and showers as these speed up exfoliation, which will fade the tan
Avoid using high street soaps, shower gels or bubbles baths that contain parabens or
sodium lauryl sulphates, as these will fade your tan more quickly
It is advisable to wear washing up gloves as the hands are one of the first parts of the
body where your tan will fade
Pat your skin dry after a bath or shower.  Rubbing your skin may rub off your tan
Avoid swimming pools or sea water, as these can reduce your tan
Remember that the tan does not have any SPF factor, so wear sun protection as usual.
