You need to plan which day you schedule your tan, a day before your event is sufficient or first thing in the morning of the event (if it’s an evening event)
PLEASE NOTE: We cannot take responsibility for lost items of jewellery, please leave all valuables at home.
Following the tan application, same day, DO NOT:
Moisturising hands, feet or face after 3 hours is okay as the product has taken effect.
8-12 Hours later
After at least 8 hours you may shower.
How to wash: Use a soft sponge (not exfoliator) covered in soap, wash well! The colour guide/bronzer in the spray-on product must come off. This will mark your clothing if you don’t wash it off it properly. Wash a few times in order to avoid the marks on your white towels or clothing. Your tan has developed so it’s in your skin, the product must be washed off. Do not be alarmed at the brown colour swirling down the drain, like any tint there is excess product that must be rinsed off.
Tried & tested tips to avoid patchy dry skin after spray tanning:
Replace your shower soap with any brand of Aqueous cream, this should become your detergent in the shower. Soaps dry out skin! Aqueous cream contains a detergent and is used to bath babies. This method is a tried and tested way to maintain very moist skin and resulting in the most natural fading of the tan. This can be done indefinitely for ultimate moisturising of the skin! Both available at Clicks, Wellness Warehouse or Dischem pharmacies.

Spray tanning is one of the most popular alternatives to tanning in the sun, it is an artificial method of achieving a tan without UV. We use the airbrush tanning method vs the tan booth – for that natural shaded and highlighted effect. Your tan will come out even and natural looking. You can decide what colour you want, anything from ‘sun kissed’ to ‘Brazilian bronzed’.
Choosing the right colour for your skin type is easy.
Fair – White, burns easily, tans minimally.
Medium – White/beige, tans gradually.
Dark – Brown/tanned, rarely burns.
The tan solution is available in a few different shades. A lighter natural sun kissed look can be achieved or you can request a darker bronze. The tan result is dependent on your natural skin colour.
DHA is a colourless sugar that interacts with the dead cells located in the stratum corneum of the epidermis. As the sugar interacts with the dead skin cells, a colour change occurs. This change usually lasts about five to seven days from the initial application. Every day, millions of dead skin cells are sloughed off or worn away from the surface of your skin. In fact, every 35 to 45 days, you have an entirely new epidermis. Therefore tans from sunless- or self-tanning lotions will gradually fade – as the dead cells are worn away, so is your tan.
Yes, spray tanning is definitely the safe way to get a gorgeous tan without the sun. Being UVB/UVA free there is no damage to the skin. As your skin cells naturally exfoliate off in the shower and on your clothing so does the tan.
Yes, the spray tan can be used by clients with sensitive skin types.
A tan is complete within 15mins! Brillianttan is quick drying and water based.
The colour lasts up to 10 days and exfoliates away naturally with the dead skin cells. Good maintenance and using a good moisturiser will prolong your tan.
Speak to your technician.
The excess colour that washes away is the bronzer guide – this is normal. The DHA is colourless and your natural colour will be developed within the skin cells and will continue to deepen and last at least a week.
Every day is advisable, this maintains the tan and will nourish your skin.
Its best to shave prior to your spray tan, when you shave afterward it removes a light layer of the tan. (This only applies to those who regularly shave)
Yes. A light layer is applied to the face.
Natural fibres will wash out, anything nylon or polyester will stain permanently. It’s advisable to wear black or dark colours to be safe. Bring a loose top and loose track pants in winter or a loose summer dress in the warmer months with flip flops.
If you are immersing in water for long periods of time this makes the skin cells rub off rapidly and therefore the tan is removed faster.
Yes, you can choose from about 5 shades.
