Tanning Tips


Whether you’re applying a self tan in the comfort of your own home or popping into your local SKT salon for a professional MineTan spray tan, the secret to perfect tan results that are even and long lasting lies in what you do before & after tanning. Here are some key tips for preparing your skin for a tan, looking after it while it develops & what to do to maintain your results in the days following.


This ensures your skin is perfectly prepared for the tan (a bit like sanding a wall before painting)

This allows the pores time to close. This will help avoid dark dots in your pores! Its else ensures you don't accidentally shave after you've been sprayed which can ruin the tan.

These products may act as a barrier against your skin and can prevent the fast acting tanning agents to develop.

Wearing tight clothing or underwear after your tan can cause rubbing and may cause marks or imperfections.


The brown bronzers will wash away, while the fast tan actives continue to work and deepen over the next 24 hours.

Especially if you leave the tan on overnight you may need a little help getting the bronzer off. If you see streaks after your first shower its usually because you haven't rinsed all the bronzer off properly, so jump back in the shower and give yourself a good wash.

This will keep your skin hydrated while also topping up the color of your tan for longer lasting results.

This also helps the tan fade naturally, rather than in patches.
