If you like to have a little bit of glow during the cooler months, a Purely Polished Full Body Bronze is sure to provide you with a natural, sun kissed full body glow.
With a bronze that can last up to 10 days, you’ll look and feel like you’ve just come back from a glorious summer holiday.
What’s better yet is that you can get this glow in the comfort and privacy of your own home, as our Purely Polished technicians come to you (which means no more heading to a salon late at night in your baggy clothing!).
We want your spray tan to last and look natural for as long as possible.
Here are some tips on how you can prepare your skin beforehand, and maintain that natural glow afterwards.
Spray Tan Preparation
Preparing your skin is key before any spray tan treatment, as it’s the work you do beforehand, that will ensure your spray tan lasts.
Shave no less than 24 hours before your appointment. Shaving is a form of exfoliation, and will rid of all your dry skin before you are sprayed. If you do shave after this time window, the self-tan will settle into your newly opened hair follicles and cause a pitted dark spot effect.
Exfoliate your entire body 24-48 hours before to ensure that you have removed all the dead skin cells.
Don’t apply any body lotions or perfumes before your appointment, as these can interfere with the spray tan developments.
Wear loose clothing after your treatment.
As spray tans develop into their full colour in 12-24 hours, we also suggest booking your appointment at for least 48 hours before you want your tan to be at it’s best (i.e a couple of days before an event).
Spray Tan Aftercare
We want your spray tan to last the distance, so here are a few things you should keep in mind after your appointment.
Take a cold shower after treatment - however refrain from using soap or scrubbing.
Pat yourself dry after each shower, and do not rub.
If you can, avoid excessive sweating or high intensity exercise.
A few days after your treatment, we suggest using a Ph balanced body wash.
Daily moisturising is super important, and is key to keeping your tan intact and prolong it. Doing this before bed is best, as your pores open up more allowing more hydration into the skin.
