Spray Tan

The spray tan is a revolutionary form of tanning. This quick and easy tanning system gives a flawless natural tan in minutes. With its fast drying programme you'll be able to step out of the salon and off to the shops - no mess - no waiting! We have a variety of colours on offer.


  • We recommend you obtain a patch test, if you have never used any self-tanning products before or have sensitive skin.
  • Do not use any other self tanning products 1 week before treatment.
  • Wax or shave at least 24 hours prior to treatment.
  • We recommend that you exfoliate the skin the night before you have a spray tan.
  • On the day of your Fake Bake treatment DO NOT wear any make-up, deodorant, perfume, body oils or lotions as these may react with the tanning agents in Fake Bake Spray Tan.
  • Wear loose, dark clothing, sandals or flip flops.


  • Relax whilst a professional therapist guides you through your treatment.
  • First the therapist will ask you to wear sticky soles that temporarily adhere to the bottom of your feet. These will stop your feet discolouring.
  • The therapist will then prepare your skin with Fake Bake Oil-Free Moisturizer Body Spray by spraying over your hands, knees, elbows and feet to ensure your spray tan blends naturally.
  • Your Fake Bake spray tan will then be expertly applied. The whole treatment lasts less than 10 minutes.
  • Immediately after your spray tan we recommend you allow a few minutes for the tan to absorb before dressing.
  • Fake Bake spray tan will not smell of DHA, the tell-tale sign of a recently applied tan. The initial tan colour you’ll see is actually the cosmetic guide colour.

AFTER: Immediately after your spray tan:

  • Wear loose clothing.
  • Keep skin completely dry, avoid water contact.
  • Do not apply any products over the developing tan.
  • Allow tan to develop for at least 6/8 hours (overnight if possible).
  • Avoid other beauty/hair treatments whilst tan is developing.
  • Avoid activities that make you perspire.
  • Drink hot beverages through a straw as contact with a hot cup can strip colour from around your mouth. Toothpaste can also strip colour while your tan develops.

After your tan has developed:

  • Rinse off remaining colour guide with warm/hot water. Once the water runs clear gently wash your self with a mild soap.
  • Avoid products that contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHA’s) as they can strip colour.
  • Avoid swimming pools as Chlorine will prematurely fade your tan.
  • To prolong your tan use Fake Bake Smoothie Oil or Fake Bake Oil Free Moisturiser daily, locking in colour. This will also hydrate your skin.


  • Whilst bathing or showering apply Fake Bake Passion Fruit Body Polish paying attention to your hands, elbows, knees, ankles and feet. Fake Bake Passion Fruit Body Polish is a soapless product which will leave no residue on the skin. You’ll be left with the softest, smoothest skin which is the perfect starting point for the Fake Bake spray tan.
  • 5 to 7 days after your spray tan we recommend you gently exfoliate your skin with Fake Bake Passion Fruit Body Polish. Repeat this every 2 days thereafter to ensure your tan fades evenly and to prepare your skin for your next Fake Bake tan application.
