Fake Bake Spray Tanning
Spray tanning is the perfect way to achieve an instant, flawless, bronzed holiday glow. For a special occasion, for the weekend, for a date, or…just because. Using our fine-mist spray gun and state-of-the-art extraction booth, one of our therapists can administer a flawless spray tan in just 20-30 minutes.
After your spray tan, you must allow time for the DHA (Dihydroxyacetone - the ingredient in spray tan solution, a naturally occurring component derived from glucose), time to react. Usually, this will be 1-3 hours, depending on the tan colour required. (Our tan therapist will advise on how long you should refrain from showering, exercising or swimming to "fix" the right colour for you.)
After the fixing period, you must take a shower. Be aware though, that – even after this first shower – your tan will continue to develop over the next 5 to 8 hours. In this first shower, you are only looking to remove the "colour guide" in the tanning solution. At this stage, do not use soaps or exfoliation creams.
How Long does a spray tan last?
Once fixed (after 1-3 hours) and settled (after a further 5-8 hours), your spray tan will last between 5 and 7 days. However, this can be extended using tan extenders. Your tan will fade as part of your natural exfoliation process. The face and hands will fade first, as these are washed more frequently.
