Spray Tan

We offer a capsule range of effective spray tans, including cult brands St. Tropez, Fake Bake and Sienna, each known for producing highly natural results.

During your appointment, a fine mist of bronzing solution is sprayed over the body resulting in an even, streak-free, natural-looking tan. St. Tropez offers both its Classic treatment, which develops gradually over eight hours, during which time it’s best to avoid showering, and its latest Express treatment, which develops in as little time as 60 minutes and is perfect for those on the go.

Opt for an Express treatment if you need a last-minute tan. St. Tropez’s unique bronzing mist contains fast-acting ingredients that are quickly absorbed into the skin. You’ll be able to shower after just one hour to achieve a light, sun-kissed look; after two hours for a golden tan, while showering after three hours will produce a deeper, darker result. Both Classic and Express treatments produce a natural-looking tan that lasts for 5-7 days.

OUR TIPS

What to prepare before the spray tan appointment:

  • Bring very loose clothing, ideally big T-shirt, loose skirt or trousers (avoid clothes with straps, as they will leave a mark on your body)
  • Bring flip flops
  • Avoid wearing body lotion or deodorant
  • Take a shower and exfoliate to get the skin ready for the treatment
  • Avoid shaving or waxing less than 24 hours prior to your spray tan appointment
  • Bring an umbrella if it is raining, or wear waterproof clothing as rain will remove some of your tan

After-care:

  • Exfoliate your body every two or three days so that the tan will fade more naturally without patches
  • Always wear sunscreen
  • Moisturise skin to prolong the tan. Avoid using moisturiser or lotion containing Alpha Hydroxyl Acids (AHAs) as this will fade your tan more quickly

  • No premature ageing that could cause wrinkles, fine lines, brown spots and pigmentation
  • Good for special occasions
  • An overnight tan whenever you need it
