FAQs

 

Q: CAN PREGNANT WOMEN USE OUR SOLUTIONS?
Though our tans use organic, natural and hypo allergenic ingredients we still adopt the point of referring to your GP before the the use of any spray tan during pregnancy.

Q: DO I STILL NEED TO APPLY A SUNSCREEN?
Yes you do. Our tan solutions do not provide any useful protection against harmful uv rays. We recommend the use of an approved SPF 30+ sunscreen 20 minutes prior to any sun exposure.

Q: HOW DO I EXTEND THE LIFE OF MY TAN?
Your spray tan can be extended through the use of our retail range including our pH body wash and tan extending lotion available from stockists.
Please Note: You should avoid excessive exposure to water and any form of exfoliation during the life of your spray tan.

Q: WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER MY TAN IS APPLIED?
Your tan will start to develop immediately upon application.
For the best possible results you should avoid the following within the first 24 hrs after your tan has been rinsed off.

  • WATER
  • SAUNAS/SPAS
  • PHYSICAL EXERCISE/SWEATING
  • TIGHT FITTING CLOTHING

Q: WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO MY APPOINTMENT?
It is recommended that you wear loose and comfortable dark clothing to and from your spray tan appointment. Tan Solution in most cases will not stain clothing and any slight rub off should come out in the wash, however some staining may occur on some light coloured leather, acrylic or other sensitive fabrics.

Q: HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY TAN?
We recommend you cleanse & exfoliate your body 24 hours prior to your tan application. This will ensure the best possible result from your spray tan by eliminating the top layers of dry and dead skin. It is also best to avoid the use of deodorants and moisturisers and any other products that may inhibit the effectiveness of the tanning solution.

Q: HOW LONG WILL MY TAN LAST?
Most people can expect their tan to last 5- 7 days depending on your skin type and preparation.
Some may even keep their tan for up to 10 days. Regular moisturising and using our Tan HQ Tan Extending lotion will extend your tans life greatly.

Q: IS OUR TAN SAFE TO USE?
Our combination of organic,natural and hypo allergenic ingredients along with highly purified water (aqua) and the natural sugar derived cosmetic tanning agent DHA produce a truly remarkable tanning result.

Q: WHY AREN’T OUR TANNING SOLUTIONS LISTED AS ORGANIC LIKE MANY OTHERS CLAIM? 
We use a blend of organic, natural and hypo allergenic ingredients. Though some tanning brands wish to list there solutions as ORGANIC. It is widely known and documented that the main active tanning ingredient DHA though a natural product can never be an organic product.
