Prepare your skin and help your spray tan to last longer with our tanning tips.

When you have a spray tan at a Brazilian Butterfly beauty salon you can trust that it will be professionally applied in privacy with the process generally taking no more than 10 minutes. You’ll notice a completely natural looking tan instantly, depending on the tan you choose. It will continue to develop over the next 12 - 24 hours.

We also offer much darker tans to suit competition dancers and cheerleaders, and very deep tans for competing body builders. If this if for you, make sure you speak to one of our therapists when booking to give them a heads up.

You can expect your Moroccan Tan to last anywhere between 7 – 10 days. Here are a few tips to help you prepare your skin before you spray tan, and how to help your tan last longer.

Before tanning:

To ensure your spray tan applies well and lasts it is important you exfoliate before your appointment. Pay particular attention to any rough areas such as your knees, elbows, ankles and the tops of your toes. Avoid using moisturiser, deodorant, make up, or perfumes on your skin prior to your spray tan as this creates a barrier between the spray tan and your skin which reduces the effectiveness of the tan.

What to wear:

It is important to get your ‘going home’ clothes right for after your spray tan appointment. We will give you a disposable G-string and cap to cover your hair for the application process and you are welcome to wear that G-string home if you wish to. Minor rub off may occur on clothing and while our spray tan is easily washed out of most fabrics we recommend you wear loose fitting dark attire for your trip home.

After tanning:

Once your spray tan has been applied you must leave it to dry completely. We will ensure it is dry before you leave, but as a precaution, do not wet your skin for at least 2 hours after your appointment. Your therapist will advise a the best time frame to wash your tan off. We recommend you do not exercise or perspire excessively between the spray tan and showering phase.

When showering do not be concerned if some of the spray tan solution washes off. This is part of the process and your skin will continue to tan. Applying BB Tanning Extender daily after your spray tan will help maintain a natural, even looking tan for longer and keep your skin firm and hydrated.

Please note; our spray tan solutions do not contain SPF. Ensure you apply sunscreen when outdoors.
