    NO. It’s entirely up to you. If you don’t want to get naked, we suggest you wear old, dark underwear or a swimming suit/bikini that you don’t mind staining. For men, boxers, swim trunks or shorts. Many artists keep a range of disposable underwear available for you to use.
    Spray tanning has come a long way since the early days, better solutions, machines, training and spray tan technology virtually eliminates these issues. Your trained artist is experienced in producing streak free tans and will ensure that the right solution is chosen for your coloring. If streaking does occur, that may be a sign that the solution was not fully rinsed off in the first shower.
    On your very first tanning session, your artist will ask you a number of questions and then fill in a consultation card for you. Then your artist will give you a few minutes to get undressed (or change into your underwear if you choose) and remove jewelry. Next, the barrier cream will be applied to your palms and cuticles (and any dry areas to prevent them from tanning too much). The full treatment will take less than 10 minutes. During the session, you will be invited to stand in a tanning tent, to ensure the spray goes on your skin, not into the air. The DHA in the solution begins to work immediately after being applied. It will develop over the next several hours into a gorgeous spray tan. The instant cosmetic bronzer that you see as the solution is being applied is temporary and will wash off during your initial shower. This is not necessarily the color you will be after the full developing time.Your first shower should be a warm water rinse only, do not use soap or hot water during your first shower. After your first QUICK rinse, you should know that the tanning actives continue to work within the skin and deepen in time replacing the cosmetic bronzers as they washed away during the first shower. Please note that everyone’s skin is very different and the personal pH balance of your skin will effect the end color results. If you are concerned about the difference in color that you see during your session, apply a tanning sticker or a piece of clothing (eg. disposable underwear) that will leave a tan line after the treatment. This gives you the ability to visually see the results once sprayed. It is not uncommon for you to feel disappointed after the first shower as you see the cosmetic bronzer wash away, however if you have used a tanning sticker or are left with a tan line from a piece of clothing, you have an amazing point of reference to your original skin tone.
    Spray tanning involves applying an active ingredient, dihydroxyacetone, or DHA, to your skin using a specialized low pressure spraying machine. DHA is a colorless sugar. It interacts with the proteins and amino acids in the outer layer of your skin to produce a golden brown color. Most spray tans contain an instant cosmetic bronzer that gives you an instant color when you are first sprayed. These instant cosmetic bronzers will wash away after your first shower and have no impact on the end result for your tan. It’s not the amount of cosmetic bronzers that make the individual solutions darker from one another, it’s the amount of DHA in the solution that creates varying results.The spray tan will contain various amounts of DHA depending on the solution you choose. The DHA starts to activate immediately, 60% of this process is complete after the first hour yet the actual tan will continue to develop over the next 24 hours. All the cosmetic bronzer will wash off when showering. Your artist will tell you how long to wait until you can shower depending on your skin color and how dark you want your tan. The longer you leave it on, the deeper and darker the tan.
    YES. It is MUCH safer than exposing your skin to the sun’s rays, and you still get that great tanned look. DHA has been approved by the FDA for use in the personal care industry for over 30 years. No adverse affects have been reported other than minor skin irritations with people who are allergic. Allergic reactions are extremely rare and if you have experienced allergic reactions to self-tanning or other beauty products, please arrange a skin patch test first with your artist. We do recommend however, to be sprayed in a well ventilated area, or an area that includes a clean air/extraction unit as to not inhale excess solution particles.
    There are different strengths (OR percentages) of DHA and your artist will advise you on the best one for your skin tone, bearing in mind how dark you want to go. The darker you tan naturally, the darker you will tan with a spray tan.
    Wear loose fitting, dark colored clothing and flip-flops/thongs as some of the bronzer can rub off on your clothing. Shoes can cause your feet to perspire, affecting the final results. Natural fibres like 100% cotton T-shirts are the best. Any color that does rub off on your clothes can usually be washed out during a normal wash cycle. Bear in mind that any materials have the potential to stain.
    With sunless tanning, no such damage occurs. The “tan” from most sunless tanners comes from the coloring agent dihydroxyacetone (DHA), a simple carbohydrate. DHA binds to the proteins on the skin’s surface, forming brownish melanin-like molecules called “melanoids” that make the skin appear tan. Unlike UV, DHA does not penetrate beyond the skin surface
    YES. You can, but you need to remember that spray tan, whilst it looks gorgeous, does not give you any protection from the sun’s ultraviolet light. For outdoor tanning, we recommend using a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more. Remember that the sun dries your skin out, reducing the longevity of your spray tan.
    There are many stages to being a NEW MOMMY … And YES, spray tanning with our organic, vegan sunless products makes it 100% safe for baby! During pregnancy, during delivery, and even during those breast feeding months (we keep nipple pasties stocked for this stage)
    Your spray tan will last approximately 5-7 days with minimum care and upkeep. Your spraytan could last up to 10-12 days if you keep up with our recommended care and utilize the retail products we suggest. As your skin sheds dead cells, your tan will fade. So the key is to moisturize and hydrate your body (DRINK WATER) to help maximize the life of your tan.
    To get the best results from your spray tan, you need to remove your dead skin cells by exfoliating 24 hours prior to your treatment. This means the DHA solution can get straight to work on new skin cells, and give you a longer lasting tan. Make-up and deodorant can also effect development and should be removed before tanning. Do not use moisturizers 24 hours prior to your treatment as they act as a barrier to the spray tan solution as well and can cause uneven, streaky effects.
    Spray tanning involves applying an active ingredient, dihydroxyacetone, or DHA, to your skin using a special low pressure spraying machine. DHA is a sunless tanning agent and is the most popular way of achieving a natural looking tan without being exposed to the harmful UV rays of the Sun and is approved by the FDA for sunless tanning. DHA is a simple carbohydrate which is often derived from plant sources such as sugar cane, also known as fructose, which is then taken through a series of untraceable synthetic processing. There are other solutions derived from beets, but they have been known to not last as long and have a violet color. It causes a non-toxic chemical reaction with the amino acid groups, which are part of the keratin protein present in the outer most layers of the skin. Various amino acids react differently to DHA, producing different tones of colouration from yellow to brown. The resulting pigments are called melanoids. These are similar in colouration to melanin, the natural brown substance found in the deeper skin layers after UV exposure, which leads to a delayed development of a natural tan. The depth of the tan will depend on the % strength of the DHA contained within the product. Overall depth and intensity of tan achieved will also depend on the consumers own natural melanin content and thickness of the skin's stratum corneum. Where the stratum corneum is thicker (elbows and knees), the reaction and tan is more intense. Where the layer is thin (the face), the tan is less intense. Another important factor in achieving a fake tan is the pH levels of the skin and formulation. An alkaline pH causes the tan to look orange, whereas a slightly acidic pH reduces this color problem. Some people expect a spray tan to provide UV protection. However, unlike the melanin pigments, the DHA-derived polymers do not absorb significant amount of UV light, and therefore, cannot protect against UVB radiation.
    Before the first shower, post-tan application, avoid any activity that would result in sweating OR coming in direct contact with water. Wear loose, dark clothing to bed or lay a dark blanket underneath you. The cosmetic bronzer may rub off on your bedding and clothing; however, nothing will stain. (Wash any items that pick-up solution within 24 hours to ensure that they do not stain). If you forget to shave before your spray tan application, you may shave with shaving cream after waiting 24 hours after your first shower to; however, we do not recommend doing it daily. Pat your skin dry and avoid any excessive rubbing with your towel after your showers. Spray perfume on your clothes, rather than directly on your skin. Face cleansers and moisturizers containing salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, retinol, or scrub exfoliants are not recommended. Do not use a washcloth or loofa for the first 3-4 days. Moisturize twice a day with a lotion OR tan extender. Your tan does not protect you from the sun. Please use sunscreen! Aerosol SPF will strip tan, please use cream SPF. Do NOT rest your fingertips on your face or body, and limit skin-to-skin physical contact with others (cuddling, breastfeeding) to avoid color transfer. The cosmetic bronzer – not your tan - will rinse off in your first shower. DRINK LOTS OF WATER!
    Brush your teeth before you come in. If you have time, buy and use Sensodyne toothpaste to prep your teeth for the treatment.
    Although uncommon, some people can experience some tooth sensitivity during the first 24 - 48 hours after the whitening treatment. People with existing sensitivity, recently cracked teeth, micro-cracks, open cavities, leaking fillings, or other dental conditions that cause sensitivity may find that these conditions increase or prolong tooth sensitivity after the treatment. If you experience tooth sensitivity after the treatment, you can use Sensodyne toothpaste to ease the discomfort. Brush your teeth with this toothpaste until tooth sensitivity goes away. After the treatment, it is natural for teeth color to regress somewhat over time. This is normal and should be very gradual, but it can be accelerated by exposing the teeth to various staining agents, such as coffee, tea, tobacco, red wine, colas, citrus drinks and fruits, etc. Do not eat or drink anything except water for the first hour after the treatment because the gel opens the pores of the enamel and makes the teeth very vulnerable to staining agents. Also, be aware that drinks and food are not the only things that can stain our teeth when the pores are open; lipstick, for example, can stain too. Do NOT apply lipstick soon after whitening your teeth. How long the results will last depends on 2 main factors: 1. Your habits 2. The porosity of your teeth. If you have naturally porous enamel, your teeth will be more vulnerable to staining agents and your teeth will get stained again sooner than the average person. Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing ahead of time how porous your teeth are. Generally speaking, if you have porous enamel and you expose your teeth to staining agents on a regular basis, your results may last for only 6 months. If you have non-porous enamel and you don’t expose your teeth to staining beverages on a regular basis, the results may last for up to 2 years. Avoid extremely hot or cold liquids. These are dangerous to your white smile because they change the temperature of your teeth. This temperature change (hot and cold cycling) causes teeth to expand and contract, allowing stains to penetrate your teeth. Try cutting down on these types of drinks (including coffee and tea) or try drinking them with a straw to reduce the amount of time they are in contact with your teeth. Avoid foods that are acidic. These foods often open up the pores of the tooth enamel allowing stains to more easily move into your teeth. If you are drinking fizzy drinks or iced tea, you should use a straw. The caffeine in these drinks as well as the tannins in tea can stain the teeth. Using a straw can help minimize the contact of these substances with your teeth. Cut back on drinking and smoking. Frequent consumption of alcoholic drinks and heavy smoking can reverse the effects of teeth whitening. Many alcoholic drinks such as wine have tannins that can stain the teeth. The same goes for the nicotine in tobacco. If you cannot quit drinking and smoking entirely, at least try to do it in moderation or lessen the frequency. Use smudge-proof lipstick. Ladies, after going through teeth whitening, you should consider switching your current lipstick for the smudge-proof kind. Some kinds of lipstick tend to cling to the teeth, and the pigments by which lipsticks are made can contribute to the discoloration of your teeth. Using smudge-proof lipstick not only prevents the lipstick itself from getting to your teeth but also minimizes the need to retouch your makeup.
