The Best Spray Tan in Adelaide

We believe we do Adelaide’s Best Spray Tanning. We service a wide variety of clients (including Adelaide TV celebrities), who keep coming back time and time again, using us all year round.

What is Spray Tanning?

A Spray Tan (or Spray on Tan) is exactly as it sounds – a tanning solution that is sprayed onto your skin that results in that wonderful sun-kissed look.

The tanning solution is sprayed on using an air spray gun while you stand in a booth with little or nothing on (your choice!). The solution contains the active tanning ingredient Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) – a colourless sugar that has been used in the cosmetic industry for over 30 years. The DHA interacts with the dead skin cells in the Stratum Corneum, the outer most layer of the skin, causing a colour change.

The tanning solution is left on for 2 – 6 hours (can be overnight) and then washed off in the shower. The solution contains a bronzer that assists the therapist to know where the tan has been applied, but also gives you an instant tan. While the tanning solution is on, it is changing the colour of your skin. The longer you leave the tanning solution on – the dark your tan will be.

How long does a spray tan take to do?

From the time you arrive until you leave the salon, it takes about 15  to 20 minutes.

What do I need to do before a spray tan?

All your questions are answered in our blog post about Spray Tanning Tips.

What do I need to do after a spray tan?

After the appropriate time (2-6 hours depending in which tan solution is used), you need to shower and wash thoroughly with lots of warm water. Use a gentle wash cloth only to wash down your body. This will remove the bronzer that is in the tan solution. The bronzer does not affect your final tan, it’s mainly used to show which area has been sprayed. If you notice streaks on your body – wash again because it’s probably the bronzer.
