PRE CARE

BUFF AWAY DRY SKIN

Say goodbye to your any dead skin with your favourite gentle natural exfoliator. Simply buff your skin all over, concentrating on some of your slightly drier areas.

Exfoliation helps to reveal a fresh new layer of smooth skin, helping your tan to last much longer. If possible, undergo this process at least 24 hours before your treatment to allow the skin’s pores to close fully. This prevents tan from building up in any unclosed pores.

 

WAX OR SHAVE AHEAD OF YOUR TREATMENT

Just like buffing away dry skin, be sure to factor in some time to wax or shave any unwanted hairs at least 48 hours before your treatment. This way, your pores have plenty of time to close so that any solution doesn’t cling and create unwanted dark patches.

 

MOISTURISE GENEROUSLY DAYS BEFORE

To reduce dry areas, such as on your elbows, knees and ankles, take some time to moisturise. For best results, we recommend doing so overnight with an oil-free formula – this will help to provide the perfect tanning base for your solution.

 

RINSE OFF ANY PRODUCTS BEFORE

Ahead of your treatment, be sure to say goodbye to any products such as deodorant, perfume, oils, moisturisers and makeup before attending your spray tanning appointment.

This way, the solution won’t cling to them and leave you with any white patches. Products such as these actually tend to act like a barrier and won’t allow your beautiful tan to take effect.

 

OPT FOR DARK, LOOSE COTTON AND JERSEY FABRICS

We all know the frustration of staining your favourite clothes, especially with things that can be slightly harder to remove! To save your worry, we recommend that you opt for dark and loose clothing made from cotton or jersey fabrics.

This way, your clothes won’t cling to your freshly applied spray tan as it develops and leave you with patches or uneven tan. Especially as some of the guide colour can be easily removed by tighter-fitting clothing options.

With this in mind, also opt for underwear/bikinis that you don’t mind getting any solution on that are made of a similar fabric. This way, you can opt for these each time without any worry of trying to find more suitable options.

 

TIE MID-LONG HAIR BACK KEEPING ALL HAIR OFF YOUR FACE

If your hair is a mid to long length, be sure to take some hair ties with you to your appointment to tie it up and out of the way. You’re guaranteed a complete and professional finish, no white marks from strands of hair draped across your face.  Shower caps are great as well as not having to spend the next day washing solution out of your hair.

 

PLAN YOUR APPOINTMENT 

I work late evenings so it is possible to have your spray tan once you have finished your day, completed your chores and are ready to go to bed, this will ensure you dont sweat off your beautiful tan whilst it is developing.

 

AFTER CARE

DISCOVER HOW TO LOOK AFTER YOUR NEWLY-BRONZED SKIN FOLLOWING A SPRAY TAN TREATMENT

 

After care is essential to the correct development of your spray tan – Sienna X tell you how to look after your skin after a spray tan to get an even glow.

 

Maintaining your spray tan is vitally important if you want to make your tan last for longer. Keeping an even tan relies on a certain level of after care, but this will help you to prolong your spray tan and maintain a truer colour between applications.

 

Directly after your spray tanning treatment you will be advised to wear loose fitting, dark coloured clothing. Tight waistbands and close fitting clothes can remove colour before the tan has been given a chance to develop. Take along something suitable to change into after the appointment.

 

Taking lots of showers or spending time soaking in the bath can all fade your tan.

It will take up to eight hours for your spray tan to fully develop, so try not to shower or bathe in this time. Taking lots of showers or spending time soaking in the bath can fade your tan. Keep your washing sessions as brief as possible if you want to maintain your tan for longer.

 

Similarly, vigorous exercise and swimming should also be avoided for at least the first 24 hours. This can affect the development of your spray tan and can prevent you from achieving the optimum depth of colour.

 

After your spray tan has developed completely and you have washed off the guide colour, keep your skin supple with plenty of moisturisation. Generous moisturising will prevent your skin from drying out and will keep your tan looking incredible between treatments.
