We all know that feeling a tan gives us, somehow life just feels that little bit better. I’ve been spray tanning for over five years and truly believe that it’s so much more than just a coloured solution being applied to your skin. It’s a mindset game changer and not only improves the appearance of your skin, it makes you feel happier, more confident and slimmer! What’s not to love?
However if you are new to spray tanning, I completely understand that the thought of getting semi naked in front of a complete stranger, mastering the “moves” and getting to grips with sticky feet can feel like a daunting experience. But I promise you, the results will be so worth it and I’m here to guide you through everything you need to know…
It all starts with the preparation! This is key and will help you get the very best from your tan, by exfoliating regularly to remove all those dead skin cells prior to your tanning appointment, you will create the perfect base for your tan to be applied.
At your tanning appointment, be completely natural. Remove all jewellery, moisturiser, deodorant and perfume. We will go through a full consultation to ensure the right solution is picked for you and your skin tone. Also, don’t be afraid to tell me your story, is your tan for a special occasion? How well do you tan in the sun naturally? All of this information will help me create a beautiful, bespoke tan just for you.
When it comes to taking your clothes off, it’s completely normal to feel apprehensive, nervous and vulnerable. However, I will do all I can to put you at ease. I will ask you you to step on to self adhesive pads (known as sticky feet) to avoid any tan being transferred to the soles of your feet. I will then apply barrier cream to specific areas to avoid the tan being too heavily absorbed. I’ll take you through step by step each of the moves to ensure that you have a tan you’ll feel proud to wear.
Once your tan has been applied, we will discuss all of the aftercare and I’ll share some tanning tips with you to ensure that you get the very best from your tan for as long as possible.
All that remains for you to do whilst your tan is developing is absolutely nothing! To get the best results, wear loose fitting clothes, keep cool and relax!
