SPRAY TANNING AT THE GREEN
£25 - Full Body
While sunbathing can be a pleasant way to spend an afternoon, and some exposure to the sun is essential for vitamin D production, there are also well known risks: sunburn, reduced elasticity of skin and increased chances of developing skin cancer.
The Green offers professional spray tan treatments to give you a glowing tanned appearance without the need for exposure to harsh UV rays.
Scroll down for important steps before your spray tan.
When you book your appointment, we will give you a patch test. This involves a small amount of the tanning solution placed on the skin behind the ear and in order to verify that you will not develop a reaction.
Before your Spray Tan
For the best tanning result, you should undertake the following steps before your appointment:
Remove any unwanted hair 48 hours prior to your treatment
24 hours before, exfoliate your whole body paying special attention to your elbows and knees and any other dry areas.
On the day, do not moisturise or use deodorant and perfume; they will act as a barrier and affect the quality of your tan
We recommend wearing loose dark clothes and flipflops or loose-fitting shoes to your appointment. Please do not wear your favourite underwear as it will come into contact with the tanning solution.
How Spray Tan Works
Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is a colourless sugar and the active ingredient which will be sprayed on to your skin.
Applied using a specialist low pressure spraying machine, the DHA in the solution interacts with the proteins and amino acids in the outer layer of your skin to produce a golden brown colour. The colour you see at the time of your treatment is purely a guide colour for your therapist to see that your skin is evenly covered. In 5-8 hours, your tan will be developed.You will need to shower to reveal your full tan.
