You’ve booked in for Gold Coast’s best spray tan! Here is how to prep your skin before your appointment.
Organic, natural spray tans work in a different way to other spray tans. The active ingredient works with dead skin cells to turn them a darker colour.
Because of this, clients must exfoliate at least 24 hours prior to their tanning appointment so that your body has enough time to develop an even layer of dead skin cells for the tan to work with.
Not exfoliating properly can result in a patchy uneven tan.
Step 1: Exfoliate at least 24 – 48 hours before your tan
Doing this will make sure you have a dead skin cell layer which the tan can adhere to.
The best way to exfoliate is with the Eco Tan Extreme Exfoliant Glove and the Eco Tan Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub. Both of these will exfoliate the skin and leave it nicely moisturised. We have both products available in our beauty shop located in Mudgeeraba, Gold Coast, so feel free to stop by and stock up before your appointment!
Do not exfoliate the day of your spray tan!
Step 2: Wear comfortable, loose clothing to your appointment!
Please arrive to your appointment in loose, dark and comfortable clothing.
We provide a disposable g-string and shower cap, for your comfort and protection.
Watch our tutorial how to prep for your spray tan.
How can I maintain my spray tan?
Avoid sweating or accidentally wetting your skin. Stay cool and dress in loose fitting clothing to avoid marks in your tan. After at least 2 hours, you can rinse off in luke warm water. Avoid soaps, shampoos or any other cleansing agents for at least 12 hours post tan appointment to ensure the tan has enough time to develop.
What can shorten the life of my spray tan?
- Body oils
- Chlorinated pools
- Not prepping your skin properly
- Sweating or exercising straight after your tan
- Not hydrating your skin (we recommend Eco Tan’s Winter Skin, available in our beauty shop)
Avoid exfoliation and continue to dry body softly after the shower
