Fake Bake Spray Tan at Body TLC 

Fake Bake is the UK's leading salon professional self tan and spray tan brand. The 15 minute treatment gives a sun-kissed colour instantly and lasts up to 50% longer than other leading brands. 

Why choose Fake Bake Spray Tan?

Fake Bake uses Erythulose, a naturally derived tanning agent, to develop a natural and streak free tan that contains no parabens or artificial preservatives and does not smell of DHA, a tell tale sign of a recently applied tan. Even better, Fake Bake contains anti-cellulite and anti-ageing properties!

What happens during your Fake Bake treatment?

The whole treatment lasts 15 minutes. A disposable bikini will be provided by your therapist however you may bring your own should you wish or go au-natural! Fake Bake is applied as a mist to your skin via a spray gun, this application method reduces the risk of streaking.

What to do AFTER your Fake Bake Treatment.

  • Allow a few moments for the tan to absorb before dressing.

  • Wear dark, loose clothing.

  • Keep skin dry and avoid contact with water.

  • Do not apply product over the developing tan.

  • Allow the tan to develop for 6-8 hours (or overnight if possible)

  • Avoid using other beauty / hair treatments whilst the tan is developing

  • Avoid pespiring 

  • Drink hot beverages with a straw as contact with a hot cup can strip colour from around your mouth.

After your tan has developed​

  • Rinse off remaining colour guide with warm/ hot water. Once the water runs clear, gently wash with a mild soap.

  • Avoid products that contact Alpha Hydroxy Acids as these can strip the colour

  • Avoid Chlorine as this will fade the tan.

  • Moisturise daily to prolong the tan and keep your skin hydrated.

  • Use SPF protection as Fake Bake will not protect you from UVA / UVB rays and instead will accelerate tanning processes (both natural tanning and on sunbeds) as the melanin is stimulated by the dark pigment on the skin. 

  • Fake Bake lasts between 3-7 days!

Fake Bake can be used during pregnancy however we highly reccomend a patch test to ensure that your skin has not changed in sensitvity or developed an allergy!
