Before Tan Care

1. Prepare your skin, this means exfoliating a few hours before your tan and ensuring that your skin fresh as possible for a longer lasting tan.

2.Shave or Wax 24-48 hours before your spray tan. Shaving or waxing too soon before your tan can cause the tan to seep into your pores leaving black spots on your skin

3.Do not leave any traces of moisturiser, deodorant, perfumes etc. on your skin prior to your tan. If you get a spray tan and still have any of these products still on your skin you tan is not going to develop properly and could leave you with uneven patches or no tan at all

4.Do not shower immediately before your tan, if you do this it means that you are likely to still have damp skin, allow yourself enough time for your skin to be dry and free from any water particles when getting a spray tan. If in the event, there is water still on your skin this leave marks and spots on your skin after your tan has developed.

5.Allow your tan to dry before changing into Loose fitting clothing afterwards.


After Tan Care

6.Wait the allocated amount of time as instructed by your technician before you rinse the tan from your skin

7. When you rinse the tan bronzer off make sure you do not use any soaps, just rinse with water and pat dry with a towel, do not rub. Secondly, do not wash using soap for at least 24 hours if possible.

8. Moisturize your skin with a paraben free moisturizer as soon as you have showered. You should continue to moisturize at least 2 times a day with a specialized moisturizer for spray tans. We recommend using Fabu Concentrated Body Moisteriser to keep your skin hydrated. For just $35 online. Its  full of Vitamin A,E B5 Avovado Oil & Almond Oil

9. After 24 hours you can wash your skin with a body wash with moisturizing properties, best items include coconut oil, avocado and Moroccan oil based products. We also stock out favorite products for body wash here for $35 dollars Fabu Body Face Wash which helps the face from drying out.
