Spray Tan Preparation and aftercare

What you need to know:

  • Exfoliate, shave or wax and moisturise the night before your appointment.
  • The skin should be completely free of make up, perfume, deodorant and moisturiser these things cause a barrier on the skin and can affect the tan application.
  • Wear or bring loose fitting dark clothes and footwear. The colour may rub off onto clothes but will wash out (it can stain some  nylon and Lycra).
  • It is best not to have a tan if you pregnant or breast feeding – purely as a precaution.
  • Do not tint eye lashes or brows within 12 hours of a treatment.


After your appointment:

  • Leave your tan for the recommended 12 hours to fully develop or even overnight
  • Moisturise regularly – hydrated skin is essential in maintaining a longer life for your tan, he-shi aftercare products are perfect
  • Avoid long hot baths or showers.  Rubbing your skin may rub off your tan.
  • Avoid swimming as chlorine can bleach your tan.
  • Take care when exercising as sweating may cause your tan to fade unevenly.
