Before and after care advice to get the best spray tan.

To get the best results from your spray tanning session it is advised that you follow these steps before and after getting the tan to ensure a smoother tan which will last longer:
Before getting the spray tan:

• Make sure to exfoliate your body at least 24 hours before applying the spray tan, especially the knees and elbows to ensure a smooth and even streak free tan that will ensure a longer lasting tan. The spray tan only darkens the top layer of the skin which means the tan will last until the skin exfoliates. Exfoliating before tanning will ensure that it will last longer.

• Do not use a moisturizer, perfume or any lotion on that day. This will act as a barrier to the spray tanning solution from developing the darker skin tone. Moisturize the day before.

• Shave the day before and wax 48 hours before to give time for the pores in your skin to close for best results.

• Do not wear any perfume or make up as this will affect the final result.

• Wear protective eye wear as the airbrush tanning systems can spray tanning solution on the eyes which can irritate them.

After care:

• Wear loose fitting clothing and footwear for the first few hours after the body spray tanning session as the tan needs to set and you should avoid rubbing it off on your clothing.

• Do not shower for at least 8 hours afterwards as the tan will continue to develop over this period of time. Therefore any swimming or sweating should be avoided.

• Moisturize regularly in order to prevent your skin getting dry which will fasten exfoliation.

• Avoid long hot baths and showers and use gentle shower products as some soap can cause the tan to fade. Shower gels specially formulated for spray tanned skin are available from Artesian Tan.

• Avoid swimming pools and the sea as much as possible as these will fade your tan.

• Pat dry after a shower and avoid rubbing with a towel as this will also rub off the spray tan.

• Do not exfoliate as this will remove the tan.
