HEAD TO TOE
WHEN IT COMES to spray tans there’s a fine line between having a naturallooking sun-kissed glow and looking like an orange Oompa Loompa.
Sunbar at Collinswood came highly recommended and having also been there before for a darker tan, I decided to try a lighter one.
In preparation, you must exfoliate first and cannot have any lotions, deodorant or perfumes on. Another tip is to wear loose clothing and no bra if possible.
Upon arrival you are given a hairnet and disposable underwear. Cream is rubbed on the palms of your hands, elbows, knees and heels because the way fake tan takes to dry skin is not a good look. The tan is then sprayed on section by section.
The tan gets darker as it develops but tones down after a shower. But the tan had taken to my hands more than I’d liked so I popped back in the salon.
The girls were lovely, explained how some parts of the body take to tans more and made notes on my file.
Two days later my tan is still looking good albeit is a little patchy in some parts where I’ve been wearing tighter clothing.
