Avoid swimming for at least 24 hrs after your appointment

Avoid touching the area for at least 24 hrs after your wax

Keep your appointments regular (every 2-4 weeks) for the best result and to maintain your brow shape

Before your tanning appointment

For an even streak free tan, ensure skin is clean, exfoliated and free of an moisturisers.

Shave or wax 24-48 hours prior to your appointment

Wear loose fitted - dark coloured clothing to avoid disturbing the tan after application

After your tanning appointment

Avoid exfoliating and waxing for the duration of your spray tan

Skin may be washed after 2 hours


For a longer lasting darker tan leave solution on skin for up to 6 hours


Use gentle shower products and gently pat skin dry after your shower


Apply moisturiser daily after appointment to increase the life of the tan

Avoid swimming for extended periods


We cannot perform a waxing service if you are on Accutane or Roaccutane or have been off it for less than 6 months, try our custom brow & face threading instead of a wax.

We cannot perform a waxing service if you have had a chemical or lactic peel in less than 4 weeks, or microdermabrasion in less than 1 week prior to your appointment.

Chlorine in the water helps break the tint down, so if you swim in chlorinated water it will lighten the colour considerably.

Anything you do which acts to increase your skins rate of exfoliation, will reduce the life of your tan.
