Spray Tanning - What To Expect

The spray tanning process is a quick, safe and effective way to achieve a golden bronzed glow.  Spray tanning solutions contain an active ingredient called dihydroxyacetone or DHA, which is a sugar-based product.  It will interact with the proteins and amino acids in the outer layer of your skin to turn it a golden-brown colour. 

The solution that you see sprayed onto your skin is a guide for the technician only. The actual tan will develop over a period of 6-8 hours after initial application.  After this, you should shower and the guide colour will wash off and your golden tan will be revealed.

The amount of time a spray tan will last varies between people, but generally you can expect to keep your golden glow for between 5 – 10 days,  depending on your lifestyle.   We advise you to follow the steps outlined below to make sure your skin is properly prepared before the tan is applied.   Your sunless tan will fade gradually, in the same way a natural tan does.

Preparing For A Spray Tan At Esentia Beauty Salon In Liverpool

To get a perfect professional spray tan there are a few things you can do to help your therapist achieve a lovely even glow and make sure your bronzed and beautiful skin tone lasts for longer. Click on the boxes below to reveal the answers...

Shave at least 24 hours before your treatment, or 48 hours if you wax.  This time allows your pores to close properly and prevents that tell-tale dotting that can appear after you get your tan.
Exfoliate 24 hours before your treatment to gently get rid of dry skin.  Removing dead skin cells and revealing new gorgeous skin underneath them will make your tan last longer.  Exfoliating makes a big difference to both the results of your spray tan and the way that it fades.
Moisturise your skin the night before your tan.  Remember to pay extra attention to stubborn dry areas such as hands, elbows, knees and ankles.
Make sure that you have removed any deodorant, moisturisers, perfume, make-up and jewellery on the day of your appointment.  It is also wise to leave at least 30 minutes between showering and your spray tan appointment.  And do not use bath or shower gels that contain oils or moisturisers.  
Wear loose, dark clothing and flip-flops or loose fitting shoes - tight clothes and underwear can leave marks and ruin your tan.  Don’t wear white clothing or your best underwear to your appointment as this will get marked.  Your beauty therapist can give you disposable panties if you prefer.  
We will give you a paper hat to cover you hair.  It is a good idea to put your hair up and away from your face and neck with a hair tie when you have your spray tan.
  • Try not to scratch or rub your tan.
  • Avoid lots of exercise as this will cause you to sweat and could affect the result of the tan.
  • Wait at least 6 hours before you shower, and always remember to pat dry with your towel – avoiding rubbing.
  • Don’t put on any moisturisers, make up, perfume or deodorants until you have showered.
  • Avoid exfoliating. 
  • Remember to use an oil-free moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated. The softer and more hydrated your skin, the longer your tan can last and the better it will look.
  • Avoid sleeping on white or pale coloured sheets as your spray tan is likely to leave marks.
  • Avoid sitting in the bath for long periods, as this could make your tan fade quickly.
