Choosing the right shade of fake tan can be tricky if you’ve never had a sunless tan before, which is where the advice of expert tanning therapists comes in!

Take the time to book a consultation with a tanning therapist before taking the plunge. You’ll get the chance to discuss your requirements and learn more about the spray tanning procedure so that you feel comfortable and prepared on the day. What’s more you’ll also have the peace of mind that your expectations will match up to the end result, allowing you to enjoy the pampering process from start to finish.

Let your therapist know if you want to achieve a striking golden hue or a softer look – they will tailor your treatment to create the perfect colour and choose a product that contains the required level of DHA.

DHA is the active ingredient in spray tan solution and it works by reacting with the air and the amino acids on the surface of the skin – it darkens the top layer of cells gradually, resulting in a natural-looking tan. Spray tanning means you can have a beautiful sunless tan that is safe and won’t have any ageing effects.

The spray tan itself takes just ten minutes to complete so you’ll have plenty of time to fit an appointment in after work or during your lunch hour. Remember to wear loose clothing following your treatment to avoid creating marks on the surface of the skin that can occur from strappy tops and tight fitting jeans. After your treatment your therapist will advise you of ways to prolong that gorgeous Sienna X glow.
