How do I prepare for my sunless session?

Arrive showered, shaven, free of make-up, perfume, oil, body sprays, deodorant and moisturiser for optimal results. Bring loose, dark fitting clothing for after your session.


Should I moisturise before I do a Sunless session?

You should use a moisturiser regularly to keep your skin hydrated and healthy, which will contribute to a more even, natural looking sunless tan. However, it is recommended NOT to apply moisturisers 2 hours prior to self tanning and 6 hours after.


Why is keeping skin moisturised essential to maintain great Sunless results?

It is important to keep skin moisturised after your spray tan booth session as dry, flaky skin will rub off faster and colour will fade sooner. Sunless tan-extending products with a light self-tanning bronzer helps hydrate skin and maintain even, natural looking colour longer by providing subtle bronzers.


How long should I wait after my sunless session before I shower?

It is best to wait at least 4-6 hours after the tan application before you shower to give the DHA time to fully react with skin proteins. We do offer a 1 hour tan which can be rinsed off after only 60 minutes and will continue to develop.


Can I work out after a sunless session?

It is best to wait at least 6 hours after your sunless session before partaking in any strenuous activities that may cause perspiration. This will give the DHA time to fully react with skin proteins as well as prevent streaking that could result from excessive perspiration.


How many days will a sunless tan last?

The longevity of a sunless tan depends on the skin’s natural exfoliation process, and on the skin regimen followed before and after application. On average, a sunless tan will last 5-10 days. The “life span” of a sunless tan also depends on your skin’s natural exfoliation. The faster your skin regenerates, the faster the sunless tan will fade. The tan created by the DHA and Erythrulose affects only the top layer of the skin and will begin to fade after 3 to 4 days as the skin naturally begins to exfoliate.


How frequently do you recommend going in for a spray tan booth session? Can I do it several days in a row?

The frequency of tanning application depends on your skin cell turn over and preference of colour intensity. People with quick cell turn-over’s may want to do a session every 4 to 5 days to keep colour fresh, while others may need to apply only once every 7-10 days.


Can I do a spray tan booth session in addition to a tanning bed?

Yes! Since sunless tanning is UV-Free, you are welcome to tan before completing a Versa Spa or Versa Pro sunless session.


Will the solution come off on my clothes?

Some of the bronze cosmetic tint colour may rub off on clothing or bed sheets. This is most likely to happen when you get dressed immediately after tanning. To minimize the chance of the tint transferring to clothing, we recommend that you wear loose-fitting, darker clothes after your sunless session. The cosmetic tint is water-soluble. Therefore, in most cases, the colour will come out of clothing in the wash.


How do I apply Barrier Cream correctly?

Barrier Cream is applied as a protective barrier to prevent unwanted colour on the porous areas such as hands, feet, nails and cuticles. Dispense a generous amount of Barrier Cream onto your hands and apply an even coating to the palms of the hands, in-between the fingers, tips of fingers, covering nails and around the cuticles.

Why do I need to wear sunscreen even if I have a sunless tan?

Although you may feel and look tanned, a sunless tan is only the temporary appearance of a tan and therefore provides your skin with no real sunburn protection. It is absolutely necessary you wear a sunscreen when outdoors to protect your skin from burning.
