Spray tan before care

Ensure any and all of your hair removal (i.e. shaving or waxing) is done at least 24 hours prior to your spray tan appointment. Do not shave or wax on the day of your spray tan appointment.
Exfoliate your skin thoroughly the day prior to your spray tan appointment and follow it up with a moisturiser.
On the day of your appointment, DO NOT apply any products to your skin (no moisturiser, deodorant, makeup or perfume). Any product applied to your skin will act as either a barrier to the tan or it may react chemically with the tan solution resulting in the tan becoming patchy or it may take on a slightly green look until you shower it off.
Make sure you have loose, baggy clothing to wear after your appointment as tight clothing will rub against your skin and may cause patches. This goes for bras as well.
Bring thongs/flip-flops to wear after your appointment, as shoes/socks will cause the tan to rub off/leave patches.

Spray tan after care

Steps to keeping your tan looking good for as long as possible:

Avoid getting your tan wet as it can cause streaking. This includes hand washing.
Do not put any products on your skin until after you have had your first shower or you will ruin your tan.
Vani-T Liquid Sun: 8-hour tan. Allow at least 8 hours to develop but do not leave it on your skin for longer than 15 hours as it will over-develop.
Vani-T Velocity: 1-4 Hour Tan. Make sure you shower no earlier than 1 hour but no later than 6 hours after your tan appointment, depending on the depth of colour you want to achieve. Colour: Light: 1 Hour, Medium: 2-3 Hours, Dark: 4 Hours.

Showering after your tan

Use only water to rinse the tan off and avoid using any product with sodium laurel sulfate (SLS) as it will strip your tan. We recommend Vani-T Body Shampoo.
Do not scrub/rub your skin when in the shower or when drying yourself as you can rub your tan off. Simply pat your skin dry very gently to absorb the moisture.
When dry, make sure you moisturise and do this every day to prolong your tan.
Drink lots of water as this will help hydrate your skin from the inside.
