SKIN TEST 24 HOURS BEFORE TREATMENT

Record any details of skin reaction on the Consultation form.

PRE-TREATMENT ADVICE:

  • Provide a Skin Test to each client to ensure they do not have any allergies to the Mist
  • Advise your client to polish their skin with St Tropez Body Polish to buff away dry skin for an even tan
  • Ask your client to remove any perfume, deodorant and make-up, prior to the spray tan treatment
  • Waxing & shaving should be completed 24hrs prior to avoid skin sensitivity
  • Advise your client to wear loose, dark clothing to prevent the guide colour transferring on to their clothes

AFTER CARE ADVICE:

  • Leave the tan to develop between 4-8hrs/Express Mist 1-3hrs before showering
  • Avoid restrictive clothing to avoid disturbing the tan development
  • Avoid physical activity that may induce perspiration
  • Apply St Tropez Body Moisturizer daily to hydrate the skin to prolong the tan
  • Exfoliate 1-2 x week with St Tropez Body Polish to assist with even fading of the tan
  • Avoid rubbing the skin after bathing – pat dry to avoid the tan going patchy
  • Avoid swimming pools as chlorine may bleach skin making the tan fade faster

TREATMENT PREPERATION

Well prepped skin will guarantee the most ultimate results and longevity of your glow and finish.

  • Start exfoliating your skin a few days before your treatment, and try to remove all traces of old self-tan.
  • For best results, complete all exfoliation eight hours or the night before your treatment.
  • Make sure all waxing is completed 24 hours prior to skin finishing along with any shaving or any other forms of hair removal.
  • Please note waxing and use of hair removal creams will take off and remove self-tan , so please book accordingly.
  • Depending on which treatment you opt for, it may be best to wear dark, loose-fitting clothing afterwards.
  • If you have super sensitive skin, a patch test is recommended 48 hours prior to your treatment.

ST. Tropez formulations contain a unique combination of two completely safe active ingredients that work together to give a gorgeously natural looking colour that fades naturally, too. The first, Dihydroxyacetone (or DHA for short) is an organic colourless sugar that interacts with the amino acids in the surface layer of the skin to produce a temporary colour change – your tan. This ingredient is combined with Erythrulose, a naturally moisturizing ingredient derived from raspberries, that works in the same way as DHA but it develops more slowly, giving you a smoother colour that lasts longer and fades more evenly.

Ideally leave it undisturbed for 8 hours – the tan will keep developing for up to 24 hours.

You will not turn orange with St.Tropez – our self tan range of products contains a green vegetable sourced pigment to help counteract any orange tinge. Our products are uniquely formulated to work with your natural gold and brown skin tone so, as your tan develops it will only go as dark as your skin would naturally tan.

No, none of the active ingredients in St. Tropez have any known toxicity.
Yes, our main tanning agent is certified organic dihydroxyacetone, with no known toxicity. St. Tropez only works upon the uppermost layers of the skin and cannot enter the bloodstream. However, be aware that hormonal changes during pregnancy (especially during the first 3 months) may affect the development of the tan. Do not apply to breast area if breastfeeding.
You must not wash, bathe, swim, shower or exercise within the 8 hour development time. You can swim once your tan has developed but swimming in the sea and chlorinated pools may result in your tan fading more quickly.

Generally, a St. Tropez self-tan will last between 2-10 days, depending on your skin type and how you care for it.

To help make sure your tan lasts for as long as possible:

  1. Soak your skin and then exfoliate thoroughly with St. Tropez Body Polish
  2. About 2 hours or more post exfoliation apply your choice of St. Tropez tanning products as it develops best when your skin pH level has returned back to normal post showering and bathing
  3. For best longevity, leave the self-tanner on overnight to allow for deepest penetration. This does not make your tan become darker, only longer lasting
  4. Apply St. Tropez Tan enhancing Body Moisturizer daily
  5. To keep yourself tan going, in place of step 4 above, apply your choice of gradual tan products daily or repeat applications of your favourite self-tanner weekly

To ensure that your tan fades away as evenly as possible, continue to apply St. Tropez Body Moisturizer daily, and every 2-3 days, St. Tropez Body Polish should also be used.

No. There are no sun filters in St. Tropez products so it’s very important that you still use a sun protection product with sufficient levels of SPF when exposing your skin to the sun. Despite the appearance of having a natural tan, you must treat your skin as if it does not.

Although extremely rare, always seek medical advice if you think you have had an allergic reaction to St. Tropez products. We do recommend that you carry out a patch test 24 hours before using St. Tropez products whether at home or in salon; just to be sure you don’t have any sensitivity before using the product all over.

I have never used St. Tropez before, is there anything I should be aware of before following the application instructions?

Always conduct a small patch test in a sensitive area such as the inner arm 24 hours before full application, just in case of any reaction and to ensure you do not have any sensitivity to the ingredients.
