The perfect tan in a can

Last week we talked all about the do’s and don’ts when it comes to Sunbed and how it helps to achieve the perfect summer look.
But what to do if it’s too late to start with Sunbed sessions or if it simply isn’t for you…is the dream of a healthy golden body out of the question now?
Thanks to Spray Tan that dream can live on!

What is Spray Tan?

Spray tanning is a form of self tanning, where a mist is sprayed onto the body either by a specially designed booth or a qualified therapist using an airbrush.
The mist has an ingredient called Dihydroxyacetone (DHA)   which interacts with your skin’s own chemistry to create a tanned look.

How long does it last and what does it cost?

Spray tan usually last for 3-7 days depending on how well your skin was prepared beforehand and how well you look after your tan.
At Annique Day Spa all our therapists are qualified to spray tan. The costs are R250 and the session takes about 45 min.

Tips for a perfect tan

It is very important to exfoliate the whole body the night before a spray tan. This helps to get rid of all the dead skin cells and promotes a longer lasting tan.
Wear loose clothing directly after the session and try to be careful of what the body touches for the next 8 – 10 hours. In this time you won’t be able to take a shower/ bath and we recommend you only that a shower/bath the day after the spray tan session.
Be sure to moisturize daily to help prolong the tan.
We suggest you shave / wax beforehand as this will cause the tan to fade quickly.

Spray tanning really is a very safe, easy and convenient way to get a golden brown glow.
Quick and affordable, I’m sure some will go as far as to say that this is the next best thing since sliced bread!
