Sunless Spray Tanning by AVIVA LABS
Prior to receiving your spray tan we recommend you cleanse and 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. It is also best to shave or wax at least 24 hours prior to receiving your spray tan if possible.
On the Day of Your Spray Tan
On the day of your spray tan we recommend that you avoid the use of deodorants, moisturizers, perfume and make-up if possible as these may inhibit the effectiveness of the tanning solution.
We recommend that you wear dark, loose fitting attire to put on after your tanning application as some minor rub off can occur after your spray tan. While most of this minor rub off will easily wash out of most fabrics, some lighter colored materials, including leather, may stain.
When getting your spray on sun tan you may wear as little as you like or a full swim suit. Most women wear a thong or bikini and men wear dark shorts or swimming trunks, but this is a personal choice. All the spray tan technicians are fully trained to operate in a discreet manner and fully respect client confidentiality.
Your Spray Tan Experience
Your spray tan will be professionally applied in a private booth by a licensed technician, using one of the leading tanning solutions. We will help you in selecting a color depth that is right for you and your skin type. The process only takes about 10 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 5 to 12 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 5 hours after application:
For the best possible results, you should avoid the following within the first 5 hours after application:
- Saunas / Jacuzzis
- Physical Exercise / Sweating
- Tight Fitting Clothing
After your spray tan has been applied, you can reasonably expect it to last for up 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. Your 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.
Finally if you want your spray tan to last longer then you should where possible avoid:
- Long baths
- Hot Jacuzzis
- Extended swimming sessions
- Any product that is designed to exfoliate your skin
