Spray tanning is a form of self tanning (or sunless tanning) where a fine mist is sprayed onto your body. The fine mist in fake tan contains a chemical called DHA, which reacts with the air and the amino acids in the top layer of the skin, causing it to gradually darken. Only the uppermost skin cells are affected. DHA is non-toxic and the skin darkening reaction is confined to the top later of the skin only – nothing is absorbed into the body. This is highlighted in the way that a fake tan fades away slowly as the skin cells undergo their natural regeneration process and flake off the body. The treatment takes just 15 minutes for a top to toe spray tan and will last for about 5 to 7 days depending on how well you care for your skin following your treatment.

We also offer a 60 Minute rapid development tan for those who need tanning within a short timescale. An enhanced Fake Bake formula, which promotes rapid colour development with tanning agents activated on contact with the skin. The specialist accelerators are then triggered following water contact, which further enhance the development process. Guide colour can be washed off after 1 hour for a light tan, 2 hours for a medium tan and 3 hours for a dark tan.
Wax 48 hours or shave 24 hours before tanning. Remove any traces of old self tan by using ingrown eliminating pads or an alcohol based wet wipe. Exfoliate using a gentle scrub the face and body which gives a smooth base for your tan. On the day you plan to tan make sure your underarms are deodorant free, you have avoided using any oil based products, as they can leaves traces on the skin that can cause streaking. Apply moisturiser sparingly to the feet, back of the heel, elbows, cuticles and hands only. Using a cotton bud, apply a small amount of moisturiser or Vaseline to your eyebrows, and hairline if you are fair. Wipe your finger/toe nails with a cleansing wipe to prevent them turning brown
