Spray Tanning: Before and After Care Advice

We have created this article so you can read up and know ALL that YOU can do to contribute to an even, extended and totally amazing Spray Tan. So read on, and if you have any further questions please feel free to either email staff@glambeautybar.com or call us on 9370 0955.

We look forward to spray tanning you soon.

Before your Spray Tanning appointment.

  1. Any hair removal treatments such as shaving or waxing should be performed the day before the appointment.
  2. It is recommended that you exfoliate your skin with Tuscan Tan Exfoliating Sugar Scrub. Do not use any other brand or exfoliant as they may contain oils or other ingredients which may adversely effect the end tanning result.
  3. After exfoliating, it is recommended that you wash using Tuscan Tan pH Balanced Skin Wash to restore the pH balance of your skin to normal levels. This will ensure the colour of your tan develops and maintains as it should.
  4. After showering do not apply any products to your skin such as moisturiser, deodorant, perfume or make-up.
  5. Bring with you to your appointment; a brief dark coloured bathing suit or underwear to your appointment. Alternatively we have on offer disposable g-strings.
  6. Bring with you to your appointment loose clothing together with thongs to wear afterwards.

During your Spray Tanning Appointment

  1. Ladies, you can choose to go totally naked, wear your own underwear/bathers or wear a supplied disposable g-string. Remember we have seen it all before. The choice is totally up to you and the results you wish to achieve.
  2. The spraying process takes approximately 10 minutes in which we will personally spray you with our Evolution Series Pressurisation hand held spray gun.
  3. We will then ensure the product has completely dried on your skin by providing you with a hand held dryer to dry yourself.

RESULTS ARE A SMOOTH, EVEN BRONZED TAN WITH NO STREAKS OR BAD SMELLS

After your Spray Tanning Appointment

NOTE: Please pay particular attention to which Tuscan Tan™ spray on tan you have had applied and follow relevant after care instruction.

Tuscan Tan original™ – 8 hour development.

  1. It is recommended that you do not shower, swim, do any physical activity that may cause perspiration, or apply products to your skin during the 8 hour development time.
    Note: Tuscan Tan original™ spray on tan will not over develop if left on the skin longer than the 8 hour development time. You may leave it on longer or overnight if preferred.
  2. Once your tan has developed you may shower, however it is recommended that you only use Tuscan Tan™ pH Balanced Skin Wash to cleanse your skin. Do not use any other body wash product, soap or exfoliants as they may strip the tan.
  3. After showering, pat your skin dry with your towel rather than rub so as not to prematurely fade the tan.
  4. Once dry, it is recommended that you apply Tuscan Tan™ Tinted Tan Extender lotion daily to maintain your tan and extend its longevity.

  2. After the 90 minute development time you may shower, however it is most important that this first shower is QUICK – just a quick rinse for no more than 30 seconds (no washing of hair etc). Also it is recommended that you do not to use body wash, soaps or exfoliation scrubs during this first shower.
    NOTE: It is normal for some residual bronzer to rinse off during this first shower leaving a lighter tan than when first applied, however the colour will continue to develop over the next few hours.
  3. After showering, pat your skin dry with your towel rather than rub so as not to prematurely fade the tan.
  4. Do not apply any moisturiser or body products until the following day.

Day 2 onwards:

  1. From day two onwards you may resume showering as normal, however it is recommended that you only use Tuscan Tan™ pH Balanced Skin Wash to cleanse your skin whilst showering, as soap, other body wash products or exfoliants may strip the tan.
  2. After showering, pat your skin dry with your towel rather than rub so as not to prematurely fade the tan.
  3. Apply Tuscan Tan™ Tinted Tan Extender lotion daily to maintain the tan and extend its longevity.
