No, Black Magic’s bronzers are made using the highest grade FD&C colours available, this helps prevent colour coming off onto clothing and sheets during the development process, we do recommend that loose fitting clothing is worn whilst your tan is developing.
Black Magic Tans are created using the finest quality ingredients and should last anywhere from 4 to 10 days depending on skin type and condition. Before your tan ensure you exfoliate to remove dry, dead skin cells and moisturise morning and night after your spray tan has fully developed to extend the life of your tan.
Your Black Magic Tan will deliver gorgeous, natural looking colour. When first applied you will see the bronzer which gives you instant, temporary colour while your spray tan is developing underneath. It is the bronzers that you’ll see being removed when you take your rinse/shower. DHA is clear, your tan will continue to develop for up to 8 – 14 hours.
Swimming in chlorinated pools may cause your tan to wear off quickly, when leaving the pool or ocean after a swim dry yourself down by patting your body not rubbing it dry with the towel, this will help maintain your spray tan.
Dermatologists will enthusiastically agree that Tanning with DHA formulation is much safer than tanning for prolonged hours in the sun. Skin allergies are not common however we do recommend that you conduct a patch test before your first spray tan, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Yes, Black Magic Tan is designed for the entire body, including the face. We do recommend that when spraying the face that the clients wear disposable nasal plugs.
There are no tests showing that spray tanning during pregnancy is harmful. The ingredient in the tanning solution that gives you your tan is DHA and this is made from sugar cane, and has no known problems. This is your decision if in doubt we recommend you consult with your Doctor.
If Breastfeeding, we suggest that you leave your bra on and do not get your breasts tanned.
Waxing is recommended at least 24 hours prior to having your spray tan, this is to ensure the pores of your skin are closed. If the pores of your skin remain open, bronzer can become trapped in the pores of your skin creating a spotty effect.
A rapid tan for (1 or 2 hours) means you can rinse off your bronzer early and go about your normal routine. Once your development time has expired take a quick 30 second rinse in the shower. Do not use any soaps, scrubs or product at this time as your tan is still developing underneath. If you do use product it can negatively impact on the end result. Depending on the tanning solution you have chosen, colour will start to appear in as little as two hours and will be fully developed between 8 – to 12 hours.
Some medication can affect hormonal changes and the bodies pH levels which can change the outcome of your tan.
It is ok to tan 24 hours AFTER but NOT BEFORE as the IPL will tattoo the colour of the tan into your skin. All tan should be removed before your next laser treatment.
Some moisturisers act as a barrier against your spray tan. We suggest using our pre tan prep spray to remove oil, make up and excess moisturiser before your spray tan as it can negatively impact on the outcome of your tan.
It is best to wait until you have exfoliated off the old colour first for best results.
Exfoliation is an important part of the pre-tan process. By removing the dead skin cells to leave a clean smooth surface you create the best possible conditions for your spray tan. If you do not exfoliate it can result in a shorter life or a patchy tan.
