spray tanning

We use Moroccan Spray Tan for all tanning treatments.  This range is salon exclusive and 100% Eco certified DHA which is softer and smoother on your skin.  use this products as it’s the best we’ve found through many years of spray tanning.

We offer 2 hour and 8 hour tans – this refers to the amount of time you can shower after).  This has the benefit of allowing you to tan at lunch-time for your special party later that night if you wish.

Your therapist will take you into a custom made spray-tanning room and personally and artfully spray you for the most perfect tan available.  Our tan is violet based so there is no worrying about turning orange.  Your tan will appear darker when first applied.  This is due to the bronzer which allows the therapist to see where she is spraying.

Hydrate the skin well in the week leading up to your tanning appointment but not on the day of your tan. Exfoliate your skin on the days before the day of your tan. Do not apply deodorant or perfume before arriving for your tan. Any type of hair removal is best done at least 24 hours prior to your tan to allow the pores time to close. Bring shoes and loose fitting clothing so tight straps and waistbands don’t mark your tan as it is processing.

Wait at least two, four or eight hours depending on the tan time and type chosen before showering.

do not:

Rub/touch the tan.
Wear tight clothes (preferably no bra)
Exercise or do anything that causes sweating or rubbing.
Apply any moisturisers/perfumes/deodorants.
Do any type of repetitive movement that could cause rubbing.
Get any water on your tan, including rain.

Your therapist will talk to you about your skin type and the depth of colour your prefer before selecting the appropriate tan for you. If you are having a full body tan clothes are removed. It is your preference whether you want to keep your underwear on (most women remove their bra to avoid strap marks) but we do provide you with a disposable G-string to wear if you wish.

As the tan is gently applied via the spray tan wand you will feel a light, cool, spray sensation on your skin. Each part of the body is done separately, spraying thoroughly and evenly before moving to the next area. It is optional to have your face tanned – some people choose not to, preferring instead to use one of the many face bronzing powders on the market to match their body colour.

Once the spray-tanning has been completed (about 15 minutes), your therapist will gently dry the surface residue with a warm air dryer.

Treat your tan gently! Avoid exfoliation or strong rubbing from facecloths and towels. After showering, ‘pat’ the skin dry instead of ‘rubbing’ with the towel.

Hydrate! At The Finishing Touch we recommend that you moisturise daily to keep your tan healthy looking and smooth.

Use at-home care! We have a great range of tan boosters and at-home care in the salon to keep your tan looking great!
