Experts Reveal How to Achieve a Glowing At-Home Spray Tan  

Everyone wants to achieve that enviable sun-kissed radiance, but booking a spray tan at a salon isn’t always the answer. With so many different options, including tanning drops and mousses, there’s more that you can do than visit a salon. 

What if we told you that you could achieve that same glowing tan without breaking the bank? That’s right, we’re diving deep into the realm of at-home spray tans, guided by none other than our founder & spray tan artist, Jules Von Hep. 

Get ready to unlock the secrets to a flawless tan that will have you looking like you’ve just returned from a tropical vacation!



The foundation of any remarkable tan lies in the preparation. Jules recommends a pre-tan routine that will leave your skin primed and ready to embrace that beautiful, bronzed hue.

Begin with a thorough exfoliation session; this step ensures that your skin is a smooth canvas, free from any dead skin cells that could hinder an even tan. We recommend using our Brilliantly Bright Body Polish

Pay extra attention to those rough patches – elbows, knees, and ankles – for a seamless application. You can also remove any old tan with our Over It: Self-Tan Remover, giving you the best base for your tan to adhere to.


We can’t stress this enough: hydrated skin is happy skin. 

To ensure your tan develops flawlessly, make sure your skin is well-hydrated before applying the tanning product. Jules recommends using a lightweight moisturiser like the Brilliantly Bright Body Moisturizer on areas like your hands, feet, and elbows, preventing the tan from clinging to these drier areas. This will give you a more even coverage, no matter the area. 


Now comes the fun part – application! 

Jules suggests using our Hyaluronic Infused Self-Tan Mitt to evenly distribute the product. Start with a small amount and work your way up for a natural-looking finish. For those hard-to-reach areas, like your back, ask a friend to lend a helping hand or use a long-handled applicator to ensure even coverage.

Avoiding Common Post-Tan Mishaps

We’ve all been there. When we asked Jules about the most common post-tan mistake, he was quick to point out one that plagues many tanning enthusiasts: shaving right after tanning. 

Jules emphasises that shaving can strip away the tan along with the hair, leaving behind uneven patches and a less-than-desirable outcome. So, resist the urge to shave immediately after tanning to maintain that gorgeous glow.

Sealing the Deal

After patiently waiting for your tan to develop – typically a few hours – it’s time to rinse off the excess product. Opt for a gentle, hydrating shower gel and use lukewarm water to ensure your tan stays intact. Pat yourself dry, and voilà – you’re now the proud owner of a radiant, sun-kissed glow that rivals the beauty of the Isle of Paradise itself.

In a world where achieving a stunning tan doesn’t have to break the bank, at-home spray tans have emerged as the budget-friendly alternative for those seeking a flawless complexion. With Jules’ expert advice in your back pocket, you’ll be well on your way to flaunting a radiant tan that’s bound to turn heads. So, why wait? Embrace the glow and get ready to shine like the true paradise you are!
