Spray Tan FAQ’s
How is a typical spray tan applied?
The spray tan is airbrush applied by a technician – the application takes 3 minutes. Then you’d dry for a few minutes under a fan and dress. It is left on the skin to “marinate” for either 2- 4 hours (express tan) or 8-12 hours (regular tan) and then its complete! Both options last up to ten days.
Which spray tanning products do you use?
We use “Norvell Tan” its breakthrough micro-nutrient technology delivers a potent blend of vitamins and antioxidants to boost the skin’s inherent “just off the beach” glow. Fragrance: Raspberry -Almond. Its formulated to create exceptionally rich colour on the skin. The streak-free, water based non-sticky formula is easy to apply and very quick to dry, leaving skin glowing with a long-lasting sunless tan that looks incredibly smooth and natural on all skin types.
How does the tan develop?
The spray tan products are specially formulated with the active ingredient DHA (Dihydroxyacetone). This is a 100% natural tanning agent that reacts with the amino acids in the skin to produce a rich, completely natural looking tan. When applied, DHA causes a chemical reaction with the skin to produce a tan not unlike the sun, but without the UVA and UVB damage that would come with tanning. This means less wrinkles, pigmentation and dryness. Sunbed users are 75% more at risk of developing skin melanoma – www.skincancer.org
How long does the spray tan application last?
Spray tans can last anything from 7 to 10 days, depending on your skin type and how well you maintain it. Read the FAQ for more info on tan maintenance.
