TAN TEMPLE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

SPRAY TANNING Q&A

WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE MY TAN?

Exfoliate thoroughly and don’t have any deodorant, perfume or moisturiser on your skin.

WHAT SORT OF CLOTHES SHOULD I WEAR TO MY APPOINTMENT?

Please wear loose, dark clothing. Tight clothes will take off your tan and can make it uneven.

WHAT DO I WEAR WHILE I’M RECEIVING MY TAN?

It’s up to you. Some people prefer to be nude. Some wear underwear. Don’t be shy about your preference. Our Sun Goddesses have seen it all.

WHO WILL APPLY MY TAN?

An experienced and well-trained Sun Goddess will consult with you about your skin type and needs and then apply your spray tan in a private booth with an advanced mist applicator.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

We ask that you arrive 5 minutes prior to your appointment. If it’s your first time, you will need 5 minutes for your consultation. The session takes 15 minutes from undressing, receiving the tan, drying off, ensuring you are completely satisfied, and getting dressed again.

DOES THE SPRAY TAN SMELL OR HAVE AN ODOUR?

The active ingredients in the tan react with the pigments in your skin, and the same tan can actually smell different on different people. Most of our tans have a pleasant smell when applied from the oils that are in the tan, however these wash off in your first shower.

WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER MY TAN?

We have a range of different tans which can be washed off between 2-8 hours, your Sun Goddess can help you choose which one will suit you best and when you should shower. Make sure you stay nice and cool and dry until you shower, no exercise and don’t get any water on you. Also don’t wear anything too tight during this time.

HOW CAN I MAKE MY TAN LAST LONGER?

1. Prior to your spray tan session, take a shower and exfoliate to ensure your skin is clean from deodorant, perfume, moisturiser, make up, dirt and other substances.
2. Wear loose clothes (nothing too tight) to your appointment.
3. When showering 2-8hours after your session (depending on the type of tan that you had) don’t use any products in the first shower, ie no soap or body wash and don’t wash your hair.
4. Avoid strenuous activities, which may make you sweat after the session.
5. Avoid scrubbing your skin too hard in the shower during the week after.
6. Pat down gently with your towel after showering and avoid long hot showers or baths.
7. Moisturize twice a day every day with a good quality body butter.
8. If you need your tan to last longer than a week, we recommend tan extender which can help stretch your tan our for a few weeks.

Will my skin be orange after the session?

No. This is a result of inexperienced or untrained tanners using poor products or poor equipment.

What are the benefits of having a spray tan??

You can literally get an all over tan if you want. This type of tan is virtually impossible to get by lying in the sun – unless you’re sunbathing nude – and most people go a shocking shade of red before turning brown when their tan is sun enduced!

Spray tanning is a great way of getting a tan regardless of where you live and what time of the year it is. If you live somewhere that doesn’t see a lot of sunbathing weather it doesn’t matter – you can still get a perfect sun-kissed tan simply by spraying it on. The same goes for the winter months when the sunshine isn’t strong enough to cause natural tanning, or if you work indoors throughout the day and rarely get to bask in the sunshine.

Spray tanning is a safe alternative to sun baking and using solariums to achieve a tan. You can avoid ageing your skin, painful burns and of course, skin cancer.

Solarium Ban across the whole of NSW:

Solariums are now banned in NSW, highlighting just how dangerous they were! Spray tanning is the only safe way to tan.
“Melanoma is the most common cancer in females aged 15-29 years and males aged 25-54 years (while) it is the fourth most common cancer in all men and women in NSW.”

Spray tanning is the safest way to have a natural, healthy glow, all year round.

Come to Tan Temple in Bondi – Australia’s only 5-star spray tanning salon, to avoid the negative side effects of solarium use.

I’m really pale. Will a spray tan look natural on me?

The wide range of tanning solutions we carry means you can choose what shade of brown you want your skin to be! Some of the brands we stock are: Sunescape, Techno Tan, Naked Tan, Liquid Sun, Tuscan Tan, Solaire, St Tropez, LDN Skins and Eco Tan. We can customise your tan to go from one shade darker to ten shades darker!

I usually apply my tan at home. What is the benefit of having a spray tan in a salon?

The results from spray tanning are much better than applying creams and lotions by hand, plus the application process is a lot less messy. We will dry the tanning solution thoroughly before you get dressed and we can get to all those hard to reach places – something that can’t be said for tanning yourself!
