Luxe At Carlin

Flawless Professional Spray Tanning

My Story

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a beauty product junkie.  I used to get a spray tan done every Friday before my spray tanner Roisin moved abroad.  Roisin used to say to me that I should have a spray tan business as I was so fussy! (I took that as a compliment lol!).  So in 2013 I trained with Vita Liberata to become a fully qualified tan stylist.

Luxe At Carlin was opened in 2018.  I have created a beautiful private space (that is also heated!!) to be able to provide a pleasant and professional spray tanning experience with excellent results. I LOVE being able to provide a service that makes people look and feel great! I hope you enjoy Luxe as much as I do!

Skin Prep

Skin preparation is vitally important for a perfect spray tan.  Before you attend your appointment you will be supplied with skin prep information. This will give you clear instructions on preparing your skin to receive your flawless spray tan.

It is so important that you exfoliate 24-48 hours before your appointment.  Pay particular attention to the dryer areas (hands, feet, elbows, bra strap area, underarms that are dried out by deodorant). Ensure that you use an oil free exfoliator.

Bridal Tanning

You wedding spray tan will be one of the most important spray tans of your life! I recommend that you trial your spray tan at least 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding. Try and tie your trial in 2 days before dress fittings and makeup trial. I also would suggest that you do not use any fake tan for 2 weeks prior to the wedding to ensure you have all your fake tan removed prior to getting your wedding spray tan, this combined with taking your skin prep seriously will give us a perfect canvas to ensure a flawless spray tan.

It is best to have your spray two days before your wedding, this allows time for the tan to settle and excess guide colour to be gone. The day before is okay but you have to make sure that any excess tan is washed off thoroughly. This will keep any residue rubbing off your skin and onto your dress. I also recommend that members of your bridal party who are going to be wearing tan have theirs done by a professional using a similar tan to ensure you all look fresh and streak free.

When do I shave?

Skin preparation is vitally important for a perfect spray tan. Before you attend your appointment you will be supplied with skin prep information that will give you clear instructions on preparing your skin to receive your flawless spray tan.
It is so important that you exfoliate 24-48 hours before your appointment paying particular attention to the dryer areas (hands, feet, elbows, bra strap area, underarms that are dried out by deodorant). Ensure that you use an oil free exfoliator.
Please do not shave on the day you get your spray tan as this can cause streaking. Shave the day before or lightly the day after.

What should I wear after my tan?

Wear a long sleeve top and bottoms after your spray tan and also in bed the night after. You do not want straps or tight waistbands.

When can I shower after my tan?

I recommend that you should shower the next morning after having your spray tan done.

When is best to schedule waxing and nail appointments around my tan?

Waxing needs to be carried out at least 2 days before the spray tan.
Nails are better being done before the spray tan to avoid patches of missing tan where acetone is used as this may remove tan on fingers.
