Shower or bathe one day prior to your tanning session.
Remove any unwanted body hair (WAX 2-3 DAYS BEFOREHAND)
Exfoliate with exfoliating cream (Pay close attention to problem areas such as knees, elbows and feet). Exfoliating Products are available in store.
*Don’t apply moisturisers/deodorants/antiperspirants/oils or makeup right before your tan so your skin can soak up the solution evenly. For your convenience we have make-up remover wipes available in the event you are unable to remove prior to your appointment.
Wear lipstick or lip balm to your appointment.
Wear dark loose clothing and shoes to your appointment.
For your convenience disposable G-Strings available or re-usable C-Strings
Style your hair up away from face and neck
Remove contact lenses and any jewellery
*Please note: Bring a towel to cover leather or lightly colored car seats. If it is raining, ensure you bring an umbrella, and protective shoes.
For special events, we recommend that you get your spray tan 2 days before the event to help provide a natural fade.
During Developing Time
Stay away from activities that will cause you to sweat or get wet
Should you choose to sleep before showering to assist with darkening your tan, cover your bed with dark/old sheets and pillowcases to minimize bronzer staining.
While drying, remember to pat, not rub your skin for the life of your tan and don't exfoliate.
When the recommended developing time has passed, take a warm water shower to remove the solution, no soap during first shower.
After the initial shower
Apply a moisturiser with a tan extending lotion once or twice a day. If you notice uneven or premature fading of your spray tan, this can be touched up. Tan saver body wash, Bronzing moisturizer and touch-up moose will assist with prolonging your tan and are all available in store.
It is preferable to use transparent body washes as these will continue to keep the pH levels stable and will result in a longer lasting, better colour of tan. Tan saving shampoo and conditioner and body washes are also available in store.
Avoid any prolonged exposure to water such as swimming pool if you wish your tan to last its longest. Discolouration of water will not occur post spray tanning provided the initial bathe in a shower has been conducted.

Want your tan to last even longer???
After we have decided on the best tan for what you want we prep your skin before applying a skin prep.
Black Magic Tan Prep - Rebalancing Body Primer Black Magic Tan Prep is a body primer designed to rebalance the pH levels of the skin, lock in moisture, and minimises pores. pH stands for "potential hydrogen" and is used to describe the acid-alkaline ratio of a substance, which ranges from 0 (the most acidic) to 14 (the most alkaline).
Why is this important? The health of your body and skin is directly linked to maintaining the right balance between acidity and alkalinity. "The skin's barrier, which is known as the acid mantle, is responsible for keeping in lipids and moisture while blocking germs, pollution, toxins, and bacteria. To work its best, the acid mantle should be slightly acidic, at a 5.5 pH balance. When it's too alkaline, skin becomes dry and sensitive; you may even get eczema. You may also experience inflammation. Keeping the pH balance of your skin in the neutral zone means your skin is in the best possible condition for your spray tan.
Black Magic Tan Lock – The Ultimate Finishing Treatment Black Magic Tan Lock is the ultimate finishing treatment.
Tan Lock hydrates and moisturises the skin, locks in colour while resisting moisture. It also serves to minimise any smudging of your new Tan during development time making it a “must have” addition for all tans.

Contour tanning is great way of enhancing different parts of the body by creating extra shadowing to certain areas.
Dark colours will cause an area to recess, while leaving an area a lighter shade will highlight and enlarge it. For example, if you follow the lines of your cleavage, your breasts will appear fuller and more rounded in contrast.
By flexing your muscles and follow the natural indentations and hollows of your body to create a subtle optical illusion.
You don't have to have muscle to enjoy contour tanning, areas such as the bottom and hips can make the area appear smaller, under the arms can give the illusion on thinner looking arms. If you do have muscle we can enhance this and make your muscles pop out even without being flexed. We will work with you to create your ideal contouring tan.
