You will remember BodiBronze from our gorgeously tanned models at our Launch last month. We caught up with Sam to find out more about her business and the benefits of spray tans.
 
 
What inspired you to start a mobile spray tan business?

 

I have always loved the fashion and beauty industry. I used to tan quite a lot when I was a teenager and have seen that this is very damaging to the skin. The sun is so damaging and we are all trying to beat wrinkles and ageing. A fake tan is one way of combating ageing. You don’t need the sun to have a great tan! In this day and age, woman have their hands full juggling work, children and home chores, that they just don’t have the time to get to a salon for a spray tan. I recognised that I could offer these woman a spray tan in the comfort of their own home. I am a mom of a gorgeous 3 year old boy and this line of work still affords me the opportunity to spend loads of time with him but also run my own business helping woman look and feel great. Its amazing what a tan can do to your self confidence!

What products do you use and why?

I use Caribbean tan professional. Caribbean tan has such a great, natural looking colour. Unlike many other self tan ranges, Caribbean tan has an ABC system to ensure you never look orange. A for light skin, B for medium and C for Olive skin. The range also contains a Cinnamon and Coconut Skin Smoothing Exfolia (with added Jojoba oil) that smells good enough to eat and a Body Butter and shimmer to be used post tan. I also love that they have a home range with different application methods from aerosol, to mousse and spritzer. The product is also locally manufactured which is great. We all need to try support local as much as possible:)

 
How long does a spray tan last?


A spray tan can last 6 – 14 days depending on how well it is looked after.  To ensure a streak and patch free tan, one must always exfoliate before hand.  There are a few do’s and don’ts.  For example, don’t go for long swims or soak in the bath, don’t exfoliate again too soon after you have had a spray tan etc.  The skin must also always stay moisturised to try and prolong the skin exfoliation process.  I recommend using the Caribbean tan Milk and Honey Skin Hydrating Body Butter, specially formulated with silk products to ensure a longer lasting tan. 

What is the best part of doing what you do?


I enjoy being able to change peoples perspective of themselves with something as simple as a spray tan.  It really is amazing how much confidence one gains.  A tan is very slimming and there are tricks one can do to help this illusion even more.  For example, putting a second layer of tan on the outer and inner thighs makes the legs appear slimmer.  I love being part of the beauty industry.  It is very important for woman to love and appreciate themselves regardless of age, size or colour.  I love being able to help them love themselves just that little bit more.

Who should get a spray tan?
 


Its great for those who want a bit of colour whether it be for a function, a day at the beach or just to look great. A self tan also evens out skin tone so its great for those who maybe have a brown upper body from tanning when wearing tank tops but still have white legs. 

Its really fun for bridal showers. I do bridal showers and spray tan the bride and her friends at very reduced rates. Tanning parties. Wedding and matric dances are the most popular. If the tan is for a wedding, it is best that a trial tan is done at least a week before and the actual tan is done at least a day or two before the wedding. There are also a lot men getting spray tanned and some African woman have also opted for a spray tan. On darker skin the tan does not actually make the skin darker, it just evens out the skin tone. We don’t recommend spray tanning anyone younger than 14 years old.
