WHAT TO DO BEFORE A SPRAY TAN
- Exfoliate and moisturise the night before the tan (not on the day of the tan), paying particular attention to elbows, knees, ankles and problem dry areas.
- Wax/shave at least 24 hours prior to treatment. This allows the pores time to close. Dotting in pores may appear if not adhered to.
- Avoid using deodorant or perfume prior to your tan.
WHAT TO DO AFTER A SPRAY TAN
- Wear dark, loose clothing for after your treatment. Tight clothing or underwear may cause marks.
- Wear flip flops or loose fitting shoes.
- Do not shower or bathe for the development period (at least 8 hours) after your tan.
- Do not exercise or swim during the development period.
- Pat dry after showering and use professional aftercare products to keep your tan looking gorgeous.
HOW FAKE TAN STARTED
- Dihydroxyacetone, DHA was first discovered by the Germans in the late 1920’s when DHA spilled on the skin and produced a brown colour.
- DHA has been listed with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 1973, and has been used in cosmetic preparations for almost 30 years.
- DHA is not absorbed through the skin into the body and it has no known toxicity.
HOW SUNLESS TANNING WORKS
- The skin is made up of two main layers: the epidermis and dermis.
- The epidermis is also made up of layers. The outermost layer of the epidermis, the stratum corneum (or horny layer), is where self- tanning occurs. DHA reacts with amino acids on the skin and oxygen in the air causing skin to turn brown, giving the appearance of a tan.
- A good example of this reaction is if you take a bite out of an apple and leave it on the side for a few hours it starts to turn brown. Fake tan works in a similar way on the skin.
- Every day millions of dead skin cells are sloughed or worn away from the surface of the skin. Actually, every 35 to 45 days you have an entirely new epidermis.
- That is why the colour change produced by DHA creating the tan effect will gradually fade. A sunless tan will usually last about 5-7 days, although the range of pre and post tan care products in salon are designed to help you keep your tan for longer.
