Frequently asked questions about spray tanning
How long do I need to let the spray tan dry and effect on my skin?
The spray tan product needs to dry on your skin for 24 hours.
How long does the color of the spray tan stay on the skin?
If the skin has been exfoliated and clean before tanning on the same day, the spray tan stays good on the skin for 1-2 weeks, depending on how much you shower, sweat and what kind of products you use on your skin. We recommend moisturizing your skin 2 times a day to keep your tan as good as possible.
How could I prolong the permanence of the color of the spray tan myself?
If you don’t want to use self-tanners at home, we recommend using lightly moisturizing products on the skin daily. Creams that are too heavy may strip the color from the surface of the skin when applied.
Is the color of the spray tan orange?
The tan shades we use are really natural brown and do not turn orange.
Will the tan wear off my skin evenly?
The spray tan wears off your skin evenly. If you have irritated / scratched skin or suffer from severe dryness, the tan may wear off a little more unevenly.
Can you wear make-up on your face for a spray tan?
Yes you can. You can clean your makeup in our beauty salon. However, we recommend that if you also want a tan on the face area, the make-up should be cleaned and a light moisturizer should be applied to the skin at least an hour before applying the tan, so that we can guarantee the best permanence.
Can spray tanning be done right after sugaring / waxing?
After sugaring or waxing, it is good to wait 12 hours so that the skin pores have closed before doing the spray tan.
Can a spray tan be done to a pregnant woman or while breastfeeding?
Pregnancy or breastfeeding is not an obstacle to spray tanning, but as with all cosmetics, the customer is responsible. In very rare cases, the spray tan may smell stronger on the skin of a pregnant client, as hormones can change the ph of the skin. Please note that the color should remain on the skin for up to 24 hours, during which you should avoid touching the skin, which may make breastfeeding difficult. Touching / rubbing the skin, etc. while the color of the spray tan is still forming on the skin, can cause an uneven end result.
Does spray tanning protect the skin from the sun?
Spray tanning does not provide protection from the sun, nor does it prevent the skin from burning. We always recommend protecting the skin well in the sun.
Does spray tanning prevent the skin from getting tanned in the sun?
Spray tanning does not prevent the skin from tanning in the sun. For the well-being of the skin, we do not recommend sunbathing.
