Preparing for your spray tan treatment

Prepare for your salon appointment with the below easy steps to achieve the perfect finish

Upon arriving in-salon your MineTan therapist will conduct a consultation and determine the best possible products for the best tanning results. Wear dark loose clothing as tight clothing or underwear may cause marks. Remember to wear loose fitting shoes. If the skin is dry, ask your therapist to use a primer, to balance pH levels in the skin and a moisturizer or barrier cream to block unwanted tanning areas like your feet and palm

Before your treatment checklist

  • Exfoliate and moisturize 24 hours before your treatment, paying particular attention to elbows, knees, ankles and problem dry areas.

  • It is highly recommended to have painted your nails and toenails, especially if they artificial.

  • Wax/shave at least 48 hours prior to treatment. This allows the pores time to close. Dotting in pores may appear if not adhered to.

  • The entire 24 hours before your treatment avoid using bar soaps, high pH shower products or in shower moisturizers.

  • Please don’t apply moisturizer, perfume, deodorant or makeup on the day of your treatment.

  • Wear dark loose clothing to your appointment. Tight clothing or underwear may cause marks. Wear loose fitting shoes.

Tips for when you get home

The most important step after your spray tan is the shower process.

The most important step after your spray tan is the shower process. After an hour (your therapist will advise if you can leave the product on longer), shower quickly, with lukewarm water for 45 seconds only. The brown bronzers will wash away, while tan actives continue to work and deepen. Do not use hot water. It stops the development of tan actives during the development time. This is a common mistake people make, especially in the colder months. Once you shower, you can wear your favourite clothes, go out of the house and definitely not stain the bed sheets. Your tan will develop into a natural tan without the hassle of fake tan staining and smell.

After your treatment checklist

  • Wear dark loose clothing. Tight clothing or underwear may cause marks. Wear loose fitting shoes.

  • After 1 Hour, Shower quickly in lukewarm water for 45 seconds. Use plain water only, don’t use shower gels, scrubs, shampoos or loofah during the first 24 hours after your treatment.

  • Pat dry after your first shower. Do not rub your skin. You can shower normally the next day or in 24 hours.

  • Moisturize after your first normal shower. Use MineTan Everyday Glow Gradual Tan so the tan is extended. Continue to moisturize every day to keep body hydrated so the tan lasts. Fake Tan will fade quickly on dry skin.

  • After day 5, exfoliate with a soft body polish on a daily basis, to help your skin absorb even more moisturiser and keep it looking and feeling gorgeous.
