So, Here's Our Do's & Don'ts for the Best Tan Results...

Do exfoliate regularly in the lead up to your spray tan. It is extremely important to get rid of all the dead skin cells.

Do pay particular attention to knees, elbows, hands and feet. Make sure all traces of tan are gone before re-applying.

Do ensure your skin is well hydrated. Drink plenty of water, and always moisturize.

Do allow yourself 8 hours to let the tan develop to its full potential.

Do wash the palms of your hands gently when you get home from you spray tan application.

Do moisturise twice a day after your tan, this will help the lifespan of your tan and prevent it going patchy as it wares away.

Don’t wear any perfume or deodorant or any products that may affect the application.

Don’t shave a day or two before your tan as the tan will seep into the open pores and can cause irritation.

Don’t wear any clothes that you value on the day of the tanning application as they may stain. Ensure you wear loose fitting clothes and flip flops to your appointment

Don’t, however moisturise on the day of the tanning application, as the tan will not stick.
