Spray Tan Advice

The ST. Tropez Tan Treatment gives a rich bronze result which will last for days. Professionally applied by an expert, and taking no less than 15 minutes, you can expect ultra flawless results. And with ST. Tropez’s innovative fragrance technology, Aromaguard, the distinctive self tan aroma is eliminated by a minimum of 70%, so you’ll smell as good as you look.

For flawless application and even fading, follow these simple steps.

Before Treatment Advice

  • A patch test must be applied to all clients new to ST Tropez here at the clinic 48 hours prior to treatment time
  • It is preferable not to apply any type of perfume, deodorant or aromatherapy oils on the day of your treatment as these reduce the results.
  • The evening before or morning of your treatment, exfoliate your entire body using ST. Tropez Body Polish. Pay special attention to dry areas of your body such as hands, elbows, knees and feet.
  • Wear dark, loose fitting clothing and dark coloured underwear.
  • Please be aware the guide colour can stain light hair, man-made fibres and wool.
  • Waxing, shaving or use of depilatory creams should be completed 48 hours prior to the treatment to reduce sensitivity.

The Treatment

  • The treatment takes up to 15 minutes but your will need to allow extra time to prepare, dry and dress.
  • The Spray Mist will dry on your skin in 5-10 minutes so you can then dress once the Spray Mist has dried.
  • Avoid touching or rubbing the applied tan once the treatment is completed.
  • For the short period that your face is sprayed, close your eyes and do not inhale. If you suffer from respiratory problems, please contact your doctor before having a treatment.

After Treatment Advice

  • ST. Tropez Spray Mist contains a guide colour so you will see a difference straight away. Your tan will begin to develop immediately after your treatment, for up to 12 hours.
  • Do not shower or bathe for a minimum of 4 hours after your treatment. For maximum effect, wait for 12 hours.
  • Do not participate in any activity which may cause perspiration for at least 12 hours after the treatment.
  • It is fine to leave the guide colour on overnight and wash in the morning. Some guide colour may transfer to bed linen. This will wash out of cotton but not so easily from man-made fibres or wool.

Tan Maintenance Tips and Homecare

  • With the correct homecare your tan will look gorgeous for longer.
  • Hydrated skin is the key to a longer-lasting tan. Apply ST. Tropez Body Moisturiser or ST. Tropez Body Butter daily to keep the skin moisturised.
  • To ensure even fading you need to exfoliate your skin with ST. Tropez Body Polish every 2-3 days. This will refine and buff the skin to create an even and longer-lasting tan, while leaving your body feeling ultra smooth all over.
  • Use ST. Tropez Everyday as a maintenance for colour and tan.
  • Do not rub, but pat your skin dry after showering or bathing.
  • Avoid swimming pools as chlorine can bleach the tan.
  • ST. Tropez products do not contain sunscreen and do not protect against sunburn so it’s important to use an SPF protection during sun exposure.


We recommend a patch test is carried out at least 24 hours prior to use of any ST. Tropez products. If there are any adverse reactions do not continue to use.

All clients new to ST. Tropez spray tan at the clinic will require a spray tan patch test applied to their skin 48 hours before treatment time.
