you have never had a spray tan at a salon or at home, or you haven’t used fake
tan in a long time; it’s only natural to have some worries that it’s not for
you or preconceptions about what fake tan feels like to wear.
I had a look at some of the common worries when it comes to self-tanning to reassure you that with the right product and experienced beautician, you can be on your way to beautiful, glowing skin all year round!
“I’m too pale, it’ll just go orange on me”
If you have not used spray tan in a long time, then trust us, it has come a long way from the days of only being able to choose between ‘light’ or ‘dark’ shades that all have a hint of orange in them! The quality of tan shades is phenomenal now, giving results that will make you look and feel like you have just stepped off the beach! If you have very fair skin, just go for one shade darker to start with so the result is a beautiful natural glow. Also, remember to consider the seasons, so if you do tend to tan more in the summer, you can consider a darker shade whilst in the winter seasons, keep it lighter to look as natural as possible.
“I hate the smell of fake tan”
There was a time when a lot of fake tans had that notorious smell of biscuits. If this has been putting you off, again, self-tan has come a long way! We have invested in a quality spray tan like Sienna X which due to the high-quality ingredients has a pleasant fragrance and superior tanning results. All our Sienna X tanning solutions are paraben-free with the highest-grade ingredients, so you will never need to worry about your tan having a strange smell.
“I haven’t got time to do it properly”
That's the beauty of a spray tan, you are in and out no longer than 20-30 minutes at the most. Plus, if you follow our top tips to increase the longevity of your tan, you won’t need to reapply as often! Looking after your skin with cooler showers, oil-free moisturisers and regular exfoliation will help your tan last and keep your skin feeling beautiful.
