Tan The Right Way

Our Lusso Tan Spray Tanning Experts Give Us 5 Things You Need To Know Before You Get A Spray Tan

 1.How to prepare for a spray tan:

All the Beauty Editors, celebrities and influencers we tan will always tell you we bang on about preparation! For us it’s the key to getting the most out of your spray tan. For the longest-lasting, flawless tan we recommend:

§  Use Lusso Tan Tan Eraser before you tan & watch your old tan disappear. A light exfoliation is always a must to revitalise the skin & get rid if dead skin cells.

§  Ensure any hair removal is done 24hrs before

§  If you’re a using Lusso Tan Primer every day your skin will be super hydrated

§  On the day of your appointment, ensure your skin is free from moisturiser, deodorants and make up


Ideally we’d always say to have your tan 2 days before your event/occasion to allow your tan to settle into the skin fully as the tanning actives continue developing even once you have washed off your tan.  But don’t panic if you can only get an appointment the day before, you will still have built up most of your colour!


2.  What to expect when you go for a tan:

Firstly, what happens in the salon, stays in the salon so don’t be concerned!  You will be offered disposable underwear, or you can bring your own, just make sure they’re not your favourites and go for black. Your therapist will give you some sticky feet (tanned soles of the feet isn’t a great look), a hair net and will apply barrier cream to the dry areas & prime your skin with Lusso Tan Primer just before tanning. Your tan should only take around 15 minutes, simply spray and glow!


3.  Development time:

Spray tans take 4-8 hours to develop so be careful not to get wet beforehand. Lusso Tan is quick drying & you should be able to get dressed straight away. Due to the light guide colour there should be very little guide colour transfer onto clothes or bed linen. After 8 hours you will have the perfect golden glow with NO fake tan smell!

Don’t panic when you rinse off and all that colour goes down the drain – we call that guide colour, your tan will not wash away!


4.  Does and don’t whilst your tan is developing:

Personally, we never like wearing anything too tight after a spray tan, and we always opt for dark clothing in case of any transfer. Once the tan is developed and you have washed it off, you can show off that tan in your whitest dress and have no worries about transfer!

Having your tan is a great excuse to get out of your spin class, as you need to ensure you don’t get your tan wet or do any exercise until it has developed, so get yourself on the sofa, catch up on your favourite television and relax!


5.  Find your perfect tan:

No matter what your skin tone Lusso Tan has a shade for you. Your highly trained spray tan therapist will help you make the right choice.
