What are the benefits of getting a Spray Tan?
Spray Tanning makes it possible to get an overall tan, which is virtually impossible to get by lying in the sun unless you’re sunbathing nude. However, even if you’re lucky enough to be able to do that most people burn their skin easily before turning brown!
The beautiful thing about a spray tan is that you can get an even tan regardless of where you live or what season it currently is - so you always look brown, healthy and beautiful.
One of the biggest benefits of a spray tan is also that it is a very safe alternative to sun baking. You can avoid ageing your skin, painful burns and most importantly skin cancer.
How does it work?
At Beauty in Health we use the most effective sunless tanning solutions such as Alternate Summer, Black Magic or Mine Tan. These products contain dihydroxyacetone (DHA) as the active ingredient which is a colourless chemical that interacts with the amino acids in dead skin cells to produce a temporarily brown colour change. The colour produced by the sunless tanning product won't protect your skin from UV rays.
How shall I prepare for my appointment?
Make sure you set your appointment at least 48 hours before an event or before you flaunt your new tan. All spray tans develop into their full color within 12-24 hours.
It is strongly recommended to shave and wax the night before their tanning session to get the best results. Also, please don’t wear deodorant, perfumes, lotion, moisturiser, oil or makeup of any sort as these can result in an off color or minimal DHA absorption.
Please bring some dark, loose-fitting clothing and sandals or flip-flops to wear after the session to not leave marks on your good clothes. We also recommend to bring your own towel or some other item to sit on as to not stain the car seat, etc. on the ride home.
What shall I wear during my appointment?
It is totally up to you on what your wear when you are being sprayed. If you feel comfortable you can wear nothing to achieve a spotless cover but you can also wear your own underwear or g-string.
Keep in mind if you are wearing any underwear, you will have tan lines. All tanning is done in a private room with a private booth, so no one will see you apart from the therapist spraying you.

How is the tanning solution applied to the skin?
The tan is done in a private booth, with a therapist spraying your body with a hand held spray gun. A fine mist is released from the nozzle while slowly moving around the body, leaving you with a gorgeous, instant, and sun free tan!
How long does spray tan last?
Spray tan can last 7-10 days, depending on how you look after after spray tan application. Every body is different and regular washing and showering may reduce the tan faster.
Does the tan leave the skin orange?
No, orange results only occur when people work unprofessionally or use poor products.
Does Spray Tan look good on really pale people?
Yes, absolutely! The wide range of tanning solutions we carry means you can choose what shade of brown you want your skin to be! We are able to customise your tan to any shade that you think suits you best.
What is the after care like?
To make the results as long as possible avoid using soap or scrubbing on the day you received your spray tan. Also, avoid activities where a lot of sweating could occur. On the very first day avoid using skin products. Pat only to dry and don’t rub.
