BEFORE THE TAN

Exfoliate and moisturise 24 hours before your treatment, paying particular attention to elbows, knees, ankles and problem dry areas.

Paint nails and toenails, especially if artificial.

Wax/shave at least 48 hours prior to treatment. This allows the pores time to close. Dotting in pores may appear if not adhered to.

The entire 24 hours before your treatment avoid using bar soaps, high pH shower products or in shower moisturisers.

Please don’t apply moisturiser, perfume, deodorant or makeup on the day of your treatment.

If the skin is dry, use MineTan Perfect Start Primer, to balance pH levels in the skin and blending cream to block our unwanted tanning areas.

after THE TAN

Wear dark loose clothing; tight clothing or underwear may cause marks. Wear flip-flops or loose fitting shoes.

Shower lightly in cold – luke warm water for 30 seconds ONLY after the first hour for a light to medium tan.

Use plain water, don’t use shower gels, scrubs, shampoos or loofer during the first 24 hours after your treatment.

Pat dry and use MineTan products after your first shower to extend the life of your tan and stay looking gorgeous.

Avoid sweating, don’t exercise or swim for the first 24 hours after your spray tan treatment.

Try not to touch your skin during development time. Any marks on your hands, therefore, are due to your hands touching the developing tan. You need to be aware that once this has developed, nothing will remove it from your palms.

Moisturise, moisturise and moisturise some more. Use MineTan’s 3 in 1 Gradual Tan so your tan is continually being topped up and its life extended. Remember to wash your palms after.

After day 5, exfoliate with a soft body polish on a daily basis, to help your skin absorb even more moisturiser and keep it looking and feeling gorgeous.

Long exposure to water and sweating from exercise will fade your spray tan. Your outer cells will start to soak up water which dilutes the effect of the tan. The longer you are in water the lighter your tan will get.

GIVE THE FIRST CLASS EXPERIENCE

give your clients
the first class experience

Using your spray tan machine to apply an even tan is just the first of many important steps! They may seem obvious, but with these tips, your salon or mobile business can become one of the best spray tanning businesses around.

Make the experience FOR YOUR CLIENT as comfortable as possible

Making the spray tanning experience as pleasant as possible will increase the likelihood of clients returning. The most important factor is to maintain a clean room, including the spray tan machine! It can also help to monitor the temperature of your tanning rooms, remembering that the clients will have to undress for the appointment.

Lastly, some friendly, casual conversation is a great way to make your clients comfortable.

Prepare your client’s skin

Blending Cream can be your lifesaver! When your client arrives, it is important to apply moisturising lotion, a barrier cream or blending cream to their elbows, knees, ankles and palms. These areas tend to absorb the spray tanning solution more readily, so a barrier or blending cream can help to avoid them turning too dark.

Prepare your clients stance

Standing still is critical in order for the tan to be applied evenly. There are a couple of ways you can help your client to remain steady during their application. Firstly, prepare the client for a spray tan. This includes applying barrier cream and stick on soles. Secondly, it is always a good idea to instruct your client about what to expect.

Let them know that the spray tan machine will produce a cold spray, as this will help prepare them to avoid flinching once you begin.

Be careful with their face!

The face can be a tricky region to tan. It can also be the area that makes clients most nervous.

Firstly, never spray their face first as it can startle your client. Instead ease them into the process by spray tanning other areas first. Secondly, ensure that their hair is tightly tucked under a shower cap, especially if they have blonde hair. This helps avoid their hair from soaking up the colour and the smell from the spray tan solution.

Lastly, ask your client to hold their breath while the spray tan machine is focused on their face.

Drying their tan and preparing them for home

Ensuring that your client’s tan is touch dry before they get dressed is critical.

Providing a fan or drying them with the spray tan machine hose is the best way to speed up this process. However, either way you should give them a couple of minutes to let their tan set after turning off the spray tan machine and getting dressed. Preparing your clients for when they leave the salon is another way to ensure that your client receives optimal results and client satisfaction.

Inform them when to wash and how to maintain their tan. Up-sell some retail for added benefits!

SALON ESSENTIALS & ACCESSORIES

    While clients want an envy-inducing tan, they most surely do not want their feet, hair or even their underwear to be brown and dirty-looking. To keep these areas clean throughout the application, ensure you provide them with disposables like sticky soles feet protectors, hair caps and underwear.

    For clients who aren’t comfortable being entirely naked, disposable underwear are also a great accessory, helping to save their own underwear and not to mention their modesty.

    Nose Filters are also great to protect your Clients and Spray Tan Techs. Helping to prevent inhalation of airborne tanning solution or overspray.
