How Does My Skin Get Tanned?
There is an active ingredient known as dihydroxyacetone (DHA). Each shade of tanning solution is determined by the percentage of DHA that is found in the solution. DHA causes a chemical reaction with the amino acids on the top layer of the skin. It is this reaction that causes the colour of the skin to change.

Can I Receive a Spray Tan if I am Pregnant?
I do not recommend that pregnant women in the first trimester receive any spray tanning. There is nothing dangerous in the solutions at all, however during these times hormone levels can alter quite dramatically and could cause a patchy tan to develop on some women.

What Should I Wear?
What you wear is entirely up to you. Most clients want to minimise the tan lines that they will receive so they only wear a G-string. However, you can wear whatever you would like. After the spray tan you should wear loose fitting clothing. DHA can react with wool, silk and nylon. These fabrics should not be worn during or immediately following your tanning session.

What Should I Wear After the Spray Tan Session?

The spray tan should dry off within 10 minutes, however it is still developing so it would be a good idea to wear loose clothing and preferably flip flops for the first hour as some of the bronzer can rub off on your clothing, and shoes can cause your feet to perspire.

Wait at least 6-8 hours before showering. Avoid wool, nylon and silk for 6-8 hours after your session, as these fabrics can be stained by the tanning solution.

How Long Will My St Tropez Spray Tan Last?
It is usually between 3-5 days, although the timeline for any tan is very much down to how well you prepare and how you maintain it. It can also vary from person to person and depends on your lifestyle and skin type. The tanning solution can only penetrate the top layer of skin, which means it cannot last longer than the natural exfoliation process.

Is it Messy?

The tanning process is carried out in a pop-up cubicle. There is very little overspray from the process and this is contained by the tent. The spray is so fine that a slightly opened window will draw out any floating solution.

How Does a Spray Tan Party Work?
People ask "how are spray tanning parties set up?" Well, I would usually advise the host to gather her friends in the lounge area and ensure the drinks and nibbles are available at all times. I would set up the portable tent in the kitchen. This ensures the guest have total privacy whilst the spray tan is being applied. Once I have finished the spray tan the guest would rejoin the others and then I would then repeat this process. At no time are you exposed to your friends! The spray tan is touch dry within minutes so you are able to get dressed in loose clothing and rejoin your friends.

Which Bronzing Mist should I select?
Getting the perfect tan quickly is easier than ever nowadays, thanks to all the many St Tropez bronzing mists on the market. However, because there are so many different types of St Tropez tanning products to choose from, selecting the best tanning products can sometimes be difficult. Many clients ask their tanning salon professionals which St Tropez bronzing mist would be best for them, so as a salon professional, it’s important that you understand the differences between the best tanning products so that you can make the appropriate recommendations to your clients.
