The DHA bronzer (active ingredient, derived from glycerin, that interacts with the amino acids in the skin cells producing a colour change) will begin to activate within the hour after application, replacing any cosmetic bronzers as they wash off. It is recommended that a rinse of 60 seconds be taken at the first hour after application; do not shower for longer than 60 seconds, for darker results leave longer as desired. Full DHA and Erythrulose results will continue to develop over 18-24 hours.

DHA is a colourless sugar. It interacts with the proteins and amino acids in the outer layer of your skin to produce a golden brown colour (it is a similar process to when sliced apples go brown when exposed to air).

BEFORE THE SPRAY TAN

  • Exfoliate 24hrs before (not on the day of your tan), paying particular attention to elbows, knees and problem dry areas.
  • Wax/shave at least 48hrs prior to treatment. This allows time for pores to close. Dotting in pores may appear if not adhered to.
  • Do NOT use a bar of soap, as soap residue can interfere with tanning results.
  • Please do NOT apply moisturiser, perfume, deodorant or makeup on the day of your treatment.
  • Remove all jewellery before being sprayed.

AFTER YOUR TAN

  • Wear dark, loose clothing and foot wear, as tight clothing or underwear may cause marks.
  • Shower lightly for 60 seconds only. Use PLAIN WATER, do NOT use shower gels, scrubs, shampoos or a loofer during the 24 hours after your treatment.
  • Pat dry and use MINE products after your first shower to prolong the life of your tan and to stay looking gorgeous.
  • AVOID sweating, do NOT exercise or swim for the first 24hrs after.
  • Try not to touch your skin during development time.
  • Moisturise, moisturise and moisturise some more. Morning and night. Use MINE TANNING EXTEND so your tan is continually being topped up and its life extended. Remember wash your hands after.
  • After day five, exfoliate with a soft body polish on a daily basis, to help your skin absorb more moisturiser which keeps it looking and feeling gorgeous.

Note: Long exposure to water and sweating from exercise will fade your spray tan. Your outer cells will start to soak up water which will dilute the effect of the tan. The longer you are in the water the lighter your tan will get.
Skin replaces itself naturally every 28 days. 25% of skin is exfoliated each week causing your tan to fade. Spray tan effects only the top 25%, using MINE tan extending moisturiser will maintain your level of colour longer.
