The best Spray Tan in Worcester!
What is spray tanning…and is it right for me?
Both men and women choose a spray tan because they want an instant touch of colour for a special event. Others appreciate the confidence a spray tan gives them in their swim gear on the first few days of a holiday in the sun. Whatever your reasons, Heatwave should be top of your list for the best spray tan in Worcester.
Unless you’re living under a rock, you probably know that a bronzed body is the hottest trend these days. Watch any reality tv and you’ll see that everyone is rocking a great tan (to go with their new teeth). And for good reason! Most people look a lot better and healthier when then have a bit of colour.
Right or wrong, the pale, white ‘ghostly’ look is definitely out!
Baking in the sun all day is REALLY bad for our skin – we all know this. So it’s no surprise that tons of people are turning to quick sessions on the sunbed or spray tanning to get that beautiful bronze glow.
How does spray tanning work?
A spray tan is a form of self tanning (or sunless tanning as some call it) where a fine mist is sprayed onto your body from either a spray gun or airbrush.
This mist has an ingredient in it called Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) that interacts with your own skin’s chemistry to produce a tanning effect.
This effect is temporary, generally lasts from 3-7 days and is completely safe for your skin (although it doesn’t provide any protection from the sun or stop you from burning).
Spray tanning results are generally very good. Many celebrities and models prefer to have a spray tan rather than anything else to get the instant colour they crave.
What options are there...and where can I get it done?
First off, you could go to a tanning or beauty salon and have it applied in a booth.
These specially-designed automated booths have several nozzles that spray your entire body with the spray tanning solution whilst you stand there. The fact that these booths are automated means that there is no guarantee that you’ll get a good, even tan and not miss any bits. That’s not to say that you can’t get good results using this method – and for the body shy, it offers a more anonymous service.
Second, and the method that we would recommend, is visiting a good sunbed salon and having your tan applied by a trained technician who can provide professional results, making adjustments where necessary and giving proper instruction and direction to ensure perfect coverage.
How does a Spray Tan differ from self tanning products?
You’ll definitely see the differences should you compare spray tanning to other forms of self tanning products like creams, mouses, gels and lotions.
All types of self tanning and spray tanning use the exact same active ingredient, DHA. But that doesn’t mean you’ll get the same results with any old product that has DHA in it at all!

What are some of the benefits of spray tanning?
Spray tanning is easy. Once you’re prepared and followed the pre-tan steps, you just go to a tanning salon and have the tan applied. It’s definitely easier and less time-consuming than trying to apply a product all over your body.
Another benefit of spray tanning is the fact that it dries quicker than many self tanning products. That means it’s less likely to get all over your clothes, your bed, and your partner!
You can’t really beat the colour and evenness you get with spray tanning.
Everyone’s skin is different so you might get a slightly different shade to someone else. But all results are natural looking with our recommended product which is WHITE to BROWN.
So how much does Spray Tanning cost?
It’s clear that the price of spray tanning varies from location to location.
In general, a single spray tanning session at a salon can cost up to £30 and whilst you may think that the more that you pay, the better the result…this often isn’t the case. Scroll down or click here to check our prices for the best spray tan in Worcester.
The most important thing when considering a spray tan is the reputation of the location and the product that they use. Check reviews and recommendations before choosing your salon.
The last thing you’ll want is an uneven, orange glow…fake doesn’t have to mean unnatural! And whilst on the subject, why do spray tan and self tanning products go green? Find out here
How to prepare for your Spray Tanning session
You must thoroughly exfoliate and moisturise your skin the day prior to your WHITE to BROWN Tan, to remove all your dead skin. Please do not moisturise on the day of treatment. Daily moisturising using a recommended after care product, after the bronzer is removed (when you shower) will extend your WHITE to BROWN Tan by 2-3 days.
Shave or wax at least 24 hours prior to your WHITE to BROWN spray application. Remove all traces of make-up, deodorant and perfume as they can create a barrier.
- Wear loose dark clothing immediately after your spray tan application. This avoids the bronzer rubbing off onto lighter garments. The bronzer is water soluble and will wash away. Care should be taken with light undergarments as the colour can hold on the inner linings / Lycra of these garments.
- Shower as usual the following morning. Your WHITE to BROWN sunless application contains a cosmetic bronzer and this will wash off during showering.
- Wait 24-48 hours between further applications.
- Protect yourself in the sun in the normal way. WHITE to BROWN contains NO sunscreens.
- Do not wear tight items of footwear or clothing that could cause friction and rub marks, for example tight socks, trainers, boots and belts.
- Do not apply moisturiser or liquid make up. Bronzing / loose powder is acceptable as is mascara and lipstick.
- DO NOT rub. Pat the skin dry post showering. Apply your recommended moisturiser whilst the skin is damp.
- Do not exfoliate again for at least 5 days post your WHITE to BROWN spray or until the day prior to your next application.
- Do not take part in any exercise or activities whilst your spray tan is developing. You can resume your normal activities once the bronzer has been removed in the shower.
- Do not swim whilst your spray tan is developing. Wait until you have showered off the bronzers. Chlorine and salt will fade your spray tan faster, as this has a bleaching affect on the skin.
- Follow the preparation advice for best results
- Consider using lip balm to protect your lips, perhaps consider moisturiser on your elbows and knees as these parts of the body can absorb more colour as they tend to be dryer
Why get a Spray Tan?
So why would you want to get a Spray Tan…what are some of the benefits of a professional Spray Tan?
You'll feel good
Once you’ve left the tanning booth you’ll feel amazing about your skin and your body confidence will sky rocket. The moisturising ingredients in our special spray tan formula will feed your dry skin and replenish it with a hydrating blend of natural substances – they smell amazing and they’ve been created to allow colour development to occur quickly.
You'll hide your blemishes
A well applied spray tan can hide light scars and, in some cases, cover up stretch marks. If you apply some bronzer over the areas that need camouflaging a little more, you’ll be left with perfect sun kissed skin.
You'll look slimmer
A good spray tan can make your arms look leaner and your stomach appear toned. The parts of your body that you like can be enhanced by layering up applications and the areas that you don’t like can be disguised.
All year round colour
You can achieve a streak-free tan at any time of the year if you opt for a sunless tanning session! No matter whether it’s snowing, raining or hailing outside you can look like you’ve just returned from a holiday in a sunny setting.
The ingredients in spray tanning formulas are non-toxic, which means you can apply them to the skin without worrying about the after effects. You will never have to be concerned about skin cancer or other illnesses that are related to over exposure to the sun.

Why do tanning products go green?We’ve all seen it – that green tinge in your favourite tanning product that sets alarm bells ringing!
Here are a few reasons why and how you can avoid the ‘Hulk’ look…
Out of date
This is your biggest clue to why your tan has turned. Self tanning products use DHA (Dihydroxyacetone), sourced from natural plant sources like sugar cane, so like all naturally-derived ingredients have a shorter shelf life (typically 6 months).
Oxidisation can occur within self tanning products when they aren’t stored correctly, resulting in excess oxygen breaking down the DHA. Try to keep your tan happy by storing it in a cool, dark place out of direct sunlight.
Incorrect preparation and maintenance
Green armpits will never be a good look, and while it’s not lasting, it is often caused by other beauty products reacting with your tan rather than the tan itself. Try to avoid using perfumes, deodorant and moisturisers before and immediately after tanning. Always ensure your skin is cleansed and exfoliated before any tanning application to remove impurities and create a longer-wearing colour.
