It’s not just for the ladies. Sunless spray tans are the healthy way to maintain a rich, natural-looking tan all year round. We’re seeing an uptick in men getting spray tans to maintain a healthy glow without the damaging effects of UV rays, especially in the winter months.
We’ve partnered with Australian-owned, global leaders of professional spray tanning, Moroccan Tan, to ensure you’re sporting a natural tan all year round.
Moroccan Tan uses a tanning formula that is absorbed deep into the skin for a natural bronze glow. Enriched with nourishing vitamins and organic oils, Moroccan Tan solutions are free from alcohol, polyethylene (PEG) and parabens – making them suitable for all skin types.
When you have a spray tan at Brazilian Butterfly, you’ll notice a completely natural looking tan instantly, which will continue to develop over the next 12 - 24 hours. Your therapist will be able to guide you on the ideal base colour and wash-off time for your skin tone.
In a variety of tones to suit both men and women of all skin types, our tans offer the perfect coverage that lasts. If you’re on the hunt for a fast, natural looking tan, visit the experts at Brazilian Butterfly.
Exfoliate 24 hours before your appointment to remove the dead skin cells, which will make your tan apply more evenly and last longer. Pay attention to areas where the tan is likely to stick, such as the elbows, knees, shins, ankles and tops of your toes. You can pick up an exfoliating mitt or body scrub from Brazilian Butterfly before your appointment.
Wear the disposable G-string provided at your appointment if you’re comfortable. You are welcome to wear this home, or you can wear your own underwear, however just be mindful that the tan could stain.
Pack your ‘going home’ clothes so that you don’t rub off your tan. Wear loose clothing that is easy to get on and off; avoid wearing jeans and tight shoes if you can. Also, be mindful that the bronzer in the tan can rub off on your clothes. While the tan formula will wash out of most fabrics, we recommend sticking to dark colours just in case.
Apply a small amount of lotion to the palms of your hands and soles of your feet before your spray tan so that the formula doesn’t stick and create an obvious tan line around the base of your palm/heel and inner fingers.
Don’t wear deodorant when you have a spray tan, as the tan formula can react with the deodorant and discolour.
Avoid wearing moisturiser, make-up or cologne before getting a spray tan, as this creates a barrier between the tan formula and your skin, which reduces the effectiveness of the tan and can cause the tan to discolour.
Wait until your tan is dry before putting your clothes on. Your therapist will use the machine to dry you off and you should feel sticky, but not wet.
Wash your tan off as per your therapist’s recommendation. You will notice that the cosmetic bronzer will wash off your skin, which is completely normal.
Keep your skin hydrated to ensure your tan lasts as long as possible. Using a gradual tan extender, like the Moroccan Tan 2 in 1 Glow Extender or 3 in 1 Luminous Extender will help prolong your tan even more.
Don’t get your skin wet for at least two hours. Be particularly mindful of your hands, as this is generally the most common body part we will immerse in water – those dishes will have to wait!
Don’t hit the gym while you’re waiting to wash off your tan as the perspiration will cause it to run.
Don’t freak out that you’re not tanned enough after you wash off the solution. Your tan will continue to develop over the next 12-24 hours, so be patient and let it work it’s magic.
Don’t sit in the sun without SPF, our solutions to not have sun protection in them.
