3 steps to achieving the ultimate spray-on tan
There is no doubt that Naked Tan all natural salon spray tans are the best in the world, providing a beautifully natural looking tan in as little as 5 minutes. But to ensure that you get the very best results from your Naked Tan tanning experience, we recommend that you follow these 3 simple steps:
Prior to receiving your Naked Tan spray-on tan we recommend to exfoliate your entire body. It’s important when exfoliating that you pay particular attention to rough skin areas like knees, ankles, heels and the tops of your feet as dry areas tend to absorb tanning solution faster, which can result in an uneven looking tan. Body exfoliating prior to receiving your spray tan will help to eliminate the top layers of dry and dead skin. It is also best to shave or wax at least 24 hours prior to receiving your spray tan if possible.
On the day
On the day of your spray tan we recommend that you avoid the use of deodorants, moisturisers, perfume and make-up if possible as these may inhibit the effectiveness of the SunFX tanning solution.
It’s important that you have suitable tanning attire to wear after your appointment. We recommend that you have dark, loose fitting attire to put on after your tanning application as some minor rub off can occur after your spray tan; and whilst minor rub off will easily wash out of most fabrics, some lighter coloured materials, including leather, may stain.
When getting your spray on sun tan you may wear as little as you like or a full bathing suit. Most people wear just a G-String but this is a personal choice. All the spray tan technicians are fully trained to operate in a discreet manner and fully respect client confidentially. If you would like to wear something more than just a G-String during the application of your tan then we suggest a bikini for women and dark shorts or swimmers for men.
Your spray tan will be professionally applied in a private booth by therapist, using one of our world leading Naked Tan tanning solutions. The process only takes about 5 minutes after which your skin will feel touch dry. You will immediately notice a completely natural looking tan that will continue to develop over the next 2 hours. The application itself is quick and easy and certainly nothing to get anxious about.
For the best possible results, you should avoid the following within the first 8 hours after application: water, saunas/spas, physical exercise, sweating, swimming and tight fitting clothing.
An important note
Skin: If you feel you have highly sensitive skin, or you have any doubts, we recommend a small localised test spray to check your skin compatibility before having your Naked Tan spray. Sunscreen: The Naked Tan spray-on tanning solutions DO NOT contain a sunscreen. Please make sure you apply sunscreen to prevent sunburn when outdoors.
Now that your tan has been applied, you can reasonably expect it to last for up to 5 to 7 days depending upon your skin type and providing you follow the instructions below.
- Once your tan is applied you must leave it to dry completely. Our technician will ensure that your application is dry before you leave, but as a precaution, do not wet your skin for at least 5 hours after the tanning session. Showering the following morning is the best option.
- We recommend that you do not exercise or perspire excessively between the tanning and the showering phase.
- When showering do not be concerned if some of the initial bronzer washes off, this is part of the tanning process and your skin will continue to tan.
- If you want to extend the life of your tan even further, then we would recommend using our sensational Naked Tan Extender which will aid in the hydration of your skin thus extending the life of your tan.
Finally if you want your spray tan to last longer then you should where possible avoid:long baths, hot spas, extended swimming sessions and any product that is designed to exfoliate your skin.
