A few weeks back I was invited down to The W Hotel in London for my first ever spray tan*. At first I was a little worried, new experiences are always a little scary even if it is just for a spray tan! The spray tan was applied by James Harkett The Spray Tan Man so I knew I was in safe hands.
At AWAY spa at W London I was met by James Harkett and a menu of tanning menu with four options The New York (SJP's finest), The London (Kate's fashion tan), The Barcelona (Penelope Cruz shows her friends how it's done) and The Santa Fe (J Lo Smolders like burnished bronze). I went for The Barcelona which is applied in layers to give the extra dark tone.
A few tips for any newbies...
Waxing/shaving should be done 24hours prior
Exfoliate body and face with oil free products
Don't wear moisturizer, deodorant or perfume (it turns green)
Remove all makeup and jewellery
Wear lose clothing
Only shower 8 hours after
Avoid having long hot baths instead have warm showers
I really loved getting this spray tan and would highly recommend James Harknett at AWAY Spa in The W.
I can not wait to get another spray tan, life just seems so much better tanned!
