Spray Tanning


  • Exfoliating plays a vital part role in pre-tan preparations. It helps remove dead skin cells and extend the life of your tan. Using a moisturising body lotion every day will also help.

  • Remove unwanted body hair at least 24 hours before your appointment.


  • Where possible, shower before your session, ensuring it’s a cool shower and you don’t use shower creams or soaps with added moisturiser or oils. Gently exfoliate the skin with non-oily products, paying particular attention to the hands, feet, knees, and elbows.

  • All moisturisers, perfumes, make-up etc., must NOT be applied anywhere before your spray tan. This is because these products interfere with the absorption of the tan and may cause streaks.

  • You should not apply deodorants; they tend to mix with the tan and give unwanted results.

  • Wear loose dark clothing. Skintight tops, jeans etc., are not suitable to wear after being sprayed and can lead to the tan developing patchy.


  • Maintaining your spray tan prolongs the life of the tan by offsetting the natural fading caused by the skin's renewal process. The following tips are for your guidance once you’ve had your spray tan.

  • Dress in your loose dark clothing after the tan has completely dried. 

  • Do not touch your body whilst your tan is drying; this can lead to finger marks on your skin and tanned palms. Not a good look!!!

  • Avoid activities that make you sweat, leading to your tan streaking. Avoid sports, exercise, housework, etc.

  • Although our MoroccanTan has short rinse off times, do not swim or use saunas and hot tubs until 24 hours after your tan has been applied. Also, please note that chlorine in swimming pools will cause your tan to fade quicker if you are in them for extended periods.

  • Showering to remove your guide colour should be done by just rinsing your skin in warm water without the use of a shower wash or soap until the water runs clear. Do not rub yourself dry; use a patting motion, and do not apply deodorant or moisturisers.

  • You may use your usual creams, deodorants etc., the morning after your tan has developed or at least 12 hours after rinsing your guide colour off.

  • Moisturise daily to prolong the life of your tan. Complimenting MoroccanTan products are available at the salon. Ask your therapist for details.

  • Do not use lotions or creams on your skin that contain Alpha Hydroxyl Acids (AHA’s) or Glycolic Acid as they exfoliate the skin. Use a neutralising pH body wash.

** ​Please note that after showering to rinse the guide colour off, you will still be developing your tan over the next few hours.


We advise you not to sleep in your guide colour.
