Tips and Advice to Prepare and Prolong Your Sunless Tan

Before your tan:

  • Exfoliate using Sienna X Polishing Body Scrub the night before your tan. Pay particular attention to dry areas such as knees and elbows.
  • Paint nails and toenails
  • Remove any unwanted hair 48 hours prior to your treatment.
  • Don’t moisturise or use perfume before your tan.
  • Remove contact lenses before the treatment to avoid contamination.
  • Bring loose dark clothing and flip flops or loose-fitting shoes. Tight clothing will cause the tan to rub off.

After your tan

  • Leave the tan to develop for 8-10 hours. Shower using Sienna X Balance Body Wash until the water runs clear and gently pat dry.
  • Avoid excessive exercise, perspiring or getting wet during development.
  • Long baths or going swimming will fade your developed tan quicker.
  • Remember that sunless tan does not protect you in the sun.
  • Use SPF to avoid burning.
  • Moisturise daily with Sienna X Radiance Body Balm to enhance your tan and prolong your colour.
  • Start to exfoliate four days after your tan using Sienna X Polishing Body Scrub to encourage even fading.

Frequently Asked Questions - Spray Tanning

  • You should wax or shave at least 24 hours before application to make sure that your pores are closed. This will ensure you get a flawless golden tan without any "dotting".
  • Exfoliate before your tan to scrub away dead skin cells. 
  • Avoid bath or shower gels that contain oils and try to leave at least 30 minutes between showering and your tan appointment.
  • Do not apply any make up, moisturiser, deodorant or perfume and remove all jewellery too.
  • Avoid wearing light coloured clothing (or your best underwear!)  Loose dark clothing is best.
Spray tanning is a quick, safe and effective way to achieve a golden glow.  Our tanning solution uses an active ingredient  called dihydroxyacetone or DHA that enhances the colour of your skin.  It is applied by our trained beauty technician using a low-pressure spraying machine. DHA is a natural product whihc is extracted from sugar cane.  It works with the proteins and amino acids in the outermost layer of your skin, turning it a golden-brown colour.  The solution which is sprayed onto your skin contains a colour to guide the technician applying it.  Your golden tan will will develop over a period of 6-8 hours.  Afte this you wil need to show and the guide colour will wash off, leaving you with a natural looking tan underneath.
All the ingredients used in our tanning solution are naturally derived, gluten free and free from parabens.  The DHA used is extracted from  sugar cane and is recommended by the American FDA for safe tanning. If you are pregnant or have any concerns about skin allergies, we recommend you check with your GP before having your spray tan.  We will also carry out an allergy patch test prior to your tan being applied.
The length of time your tan will last varies from person to person, but generally, you can expect it to last between 5 and 10 days, depending on your lifestyle. To ensure the best results, we recommend that you prepare your skin thoroughly before your tan, using oil free products.  You should also moisturise well after the treatment.  Your sunless tan will fade gradually as the top layer of your skin naturally sheds its dead skin cells - in the same way that a real tan fades.  
Your appointment will begin with a consultation and patch test to check your skin for any allergies or sensitivities to the product to be used.  We will talk to you about the level of tan you would like to acheive and agree on the perfect shade for you. After this, we will ask you to undress (if you wish to) and remove any jewellery.  We will offer you disposable underwear if you'd like to use this or if you prefer not to undress, you could choose to wear dark shorts or swimwear for the treatment. Your tanning technician will then apply a barrier cream to areas such as finger nails and toe nails that do not need a tan.  You will then be asked to enter a special tanning cubicle and a gentle stream of tanning lotion will be sprayed onto your face and body.  The treatment dries quickly and you will be able to dress immediately afterwards.  
No, you don't - it's totally up to you.  Some people choose to go topless or alternatively you could wear dark shorts or swimwear during the treatment.  We can provide you with disposable underwear if you'd like to use this, and if you use your own, remember not to bring light coloured garments that will stain.
After your spray tan treatment you should remember the following:
  • Wear loose dark clothing and and flip flops or sandals.
  • Avoid wearing a bra which will rub and make marks on your new tan.
  • Avoid rubbing or scratching your tan as this could smudge it or make streaks.
  • Avoid taking excessive exercise that will cause your perspire and affect the tan.
  • Wait for at least 6 hours after your tan is applied before showering.  When you do, make sure to use a mild shower gel and pat yourself dry afterwards.
  • Wait until you have showered before applying any moisturisers, make up, perfumes or deodorants.
  • Never exfoliate straight after a spray tan.  Wait a few days to make sure your tan fades evenly.
  • Use an oil-free moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated and make sure your tan lasts as long as possible.  Speak to your Beach beautician for recommendations if you aren't sure which products to use.
  • Do not use hair removal creams as they will exfoliate the skin, shortening the life fo your tan.
  • Don't sit in the bath for long periods of time to avoid soaking off your tan and shortening its life.
  • Avoid sleeping on light coloured sheets as your tan could leave marks on them.
The choice is yours - our expert tanning technicians will talk to you about the shades available before we start.  Options range from lightly bronzed to darker shades of brown.
No, don't worry!  The days of orange fake tanning are definitely over!  With our Sienna X tanning services in Hove you can be certain of getting a gorgeous, even golden glow.
