Spray tan prep

Before spray tanning we suggest our clients to exfoliate well with an Aviva exfoliator to prep the skin and eliminate any dry skin or oils. Waxing and shaving should be done 24hours prior to spray tanning. Please ensure you have removed all deodorant, perfumes and moisturisers before arriving at ENVY.

After Care

Do not wet the skin and avoid activities that could cause perspiration before showering. You must leave the tan to develop for the required time for maximum results. Once the tan has developed the top layer of bronzer will wash off in the shower, pat the skin dry avoid rubbing. Then apply your moisturiser or tan extender daily.

Please note: The use of hot baths, chlorinated pools and spas will reduce the life of your tan. Spray tanning does NOT provide sun protection you MUST wear sunscreen.

 

Express Tan – For the ultimate natural tan…Are you wanting to achieve a light natural glow in the shortest time possible! Look no further Aviva Labs has just released the new express tan. If you don’t have time to wait for a tan to develop this is perfect for you.

We recommend the tan for:

Mothers on the run

Anyone going out that night and want a very natural tan instantly that day!

The busy men and women on the go

The express tan will last 5 – 7days. Making sure you are using the tan extender cream will ensure you will get the maximum results out of your spray tan. The Aviva express tan has a higher concentration of DHA so the developing time is shortened.

Developing time is anywhere between 2 – 3 hours before showering then the tan will develop to its full colour 8 hours after the shower.

*Please note* bronzer will look dark on the skin, after your first shower you may see most of this bronzer disappear and the tan will be very natural! However you may find the colour gets darker in the hours following.

Please ensure you DO NOT use any scrubs or body washes with your first shower, as the products can strip the tan from the skin.
