When having a Salon Spray Tan Treatment, to ensure that your tan is even and flawless please follow this advice:-


Preparation before treatment


  • If you are between 16-18 years old you should be accompanied by an adult

  • A patch test is required a minimum of 24 hours before your spray tan

  • Waxing or shaving should be completed at least 24 hours before your spray tan to reduce                   sensitivity

  • If possible do not apply any perfume, deodorant or aromatherapy oils on the day of   your spray         tan as these reduce the results

  • Exfoliate your entire body in the evening before or the morning of your spray tan. Pay particular       attention to dry areas of your body such as hands, elbows, knees and feet

ST TROPEZ Prep and Maintain kits are available in the Salon

  • Wear dark, loose fitting clothing with a dark coloured bra or no bra at all. Please be aware that         the guide colour can stain light hair, man-made fibres and wool


The Treatment

  • The application takes up to 20 minutes to cover the whole body. The bronzing mist will dry on         your body on just a few minutes so you can dress straight after the spray tan

  • Avoid rubbing or touching the tan once the application is complete

  • For the short period that your face is sprayed close your eyes and do not inhale. If you suffer from     any respiratory problems, please consult your doctor prior to  having a spray tan


After Your Treatment

  • Your tan will begin to develop immediately after your treatment

  • Do not shower or bathe for a minimum of 4 hours after your treatment depending on the tanning     brand that was used. You will be advised by your therapist

  • Do not carry out any activity which may cause perspiration for at least 12 hours after the                   treatment

  • The guide colour may be left on overnight and washed off in the morning. Some guide colour may     transfer to bed linen, This will wash out of cotton but may not wash out so easily from man-made     fibres or wool


Tan Maintenance

  • With the correct aftercare your tan will last longer

  • Apply ST TROPEZ  Tan Enhancing Body Moisturiser or Tan Booster daily in between self tan     applications to maintain your tan for longer and to ensure it fades evenly

  • Exfoliate every 3 days to ensure even fading of your tan

  • Do not rub your skin but pat dry after showering or bathing

  • Avoid swimming pools as chlorine may bleach your tan


Please remember that Spray Tanning products do not  contain a sunscreen and do not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin while tanning may increase the risk of skin ageing, skin cancer and other harmful effects to the skin, even if you do not usually burn.
