How long will my tan last?
Spray Tans can last from 7-10 days if cared for correctly. To maintain your tan, it’s very important to MOISTURIZE. Avoid using products that will dry the skin like bar soaps, Anti-aging products, toners or alcohol-based products. Following these after care instructions can help keep your tan from fading or having a blotchy effect.
How long does it take to see results?
Initially after being sprayed you will have a bronze finish. This is the toner that is used as a guide for the spray tan professional. Depending on when you wash off your tan the color may not appear to be very dark. Please keep in mind that your tan will continue to develop for approximately 24 hours into a rich deep tan.
How long will my session take?
From start to finish, the session usually takes about 25 minutes.
What should I wear during my tanning session?
You can wear undergarments, a bathing suit, or nothing. Your chosen attire should be whatever you are completely comfortable with.
What should I wear after my tanning session?
You should bring loose dark clothing. The solution because it is organic and does not contain any chemicals to speed up the dry time may rub off on clothing if you dress immediately or are a warmer person. But because it contains all natural ingredients should not stain the clothing. I recommend to bring cotton materials as this fabric is very breathable. Try to avoid wearing tight bras, socks and jeans.
Is your solution Organic?
Yes, the solution I use is Eco Tans Organic Rich Honey Solution. It is Certified Organic by The Organic Food Chain under the Australian governments organic and bio dynamic standards. Australian certifiers have the highest and strictest standards in the world- allowing no GMO or synthetics through when certifying a product. It is also certified Toxin Free by Safe Cosmetics Australia.
Is it safe to use while Pregnant or Breastfeeding?
I do not believe that any product should claim to be safe for everyone as many people may still react to natural ingredients such as nuts and strawberries. If you do have allergies, I recommend a 24 hour patch test and a consult with your General Practitioner. The product does have a huge following of pregnant and breastfeeding women as it contains nothing synthetic or artificial. NO harsh smells, or chemicals.
If I choose to have you travel to me, where does the tan take place in my house?
I have a mobile pop up cabana tent that I will set up. The tent can fit pretty much anywhere in your home and ensures no tanning solution gets on any of your belongings or flooring. I will also need access to an electrical outlet.
How do I prepare for my tanning session and how do I take care of the tan?
Please see the post about Spray Tanning Tips and After Care.
How long after my tanning session can I shower or work out?
You can shower or work out 4 hours after being sprayed. I would recommend 8 hours for best results, as this allows the solution to be absorbed into the skin completely. During that time you will want to avoid showering, swimming, working out, applying lotions, sunscreen and applying make-up.
I want a spray tan for a special occasion, when is the best time to tan?
I recommend to tan a couple of days before the event so you have the most vibrant tan for the occasion. It can take up to 24 hours to get the richest tan.
I am very fair complected. Am I going to look orange with a spray tan?
No, the solution I use has no orange dye and nothing synthetic in the ingredients. This means you will NOT go orange but a beautiful bronze as the color is derived from cacao and red grapes.
When spray tanning do you spray the Neck and Face?
This depends on what the client wants but usually yes. Most clients prefer to have their necks and faces sprayed as this provides for a more natural look. It also gives the face a natural glow.
