Pura Body Spray Tan

California Spray Tan

The all-year-round, sun-kissed look is the staple fashion accessory. Unfortunately, in the UK this is going to be hard for many to achieve without a little help. At a time when many are shunning sun beds due to recent studies that have shown that the overuse of sun beds can pose many health risks to the skin, just as sitting in the sun all day does. Men and women are turning to the art of spray tanning to maintain their sun-kissed look regardless of the weather outside.

At PURA, we use the CaliforniaTan Sunless solution. Alcohol free, Paraben free and drenched in Aloe Vera, it delivers a customized and flawless body-detailing in less than four minutes for that "just from the beach tan.

California Tan Sunless Spray Tanning Benefits

Aside from the year round tan, there are other benefits to spray tanning.

Because the tanning solution used during the process is sprayed onto the skin as a fine mist, it is easy to get a smooth, streak-free finish. You should always end up with a perfect looking tan with very few, if any, blemishes.

You can avoid the embarrassing process of turning a shocking shade of red before turning brown when your tan is naturally sun induced!

You can literally pick what shade of brown you want your skin to be. You can start off with a single application of a light shade and add to it gradually until you are happy with the colour.

This type of sunless application is provided by a professionally trained therapist using the California Tan Spray Gun and can be tailored specifically to your requirements. It should take no longer than 10-15 minutes for a full body spray. This unique system helps to dry as it spray so you should be able to re-dress almost straight away. You will see some instant colour which will further develop in the next 2-24 hours. The instant colour is very natural and will not prevent you from carrying on with your day as usual.


Exfoliate your skin before your sunless tanning application for smooth skin and even tanning results. Spend a little extra time on knees, elbows, feet and hands. Exfoliate at least once a week to maintain smooth healthy-looking skin.

  • Shave at least 6 hours before your sunless tanning session. It is best to wait 24 hours after waxing prior to sunless tanning.
  • Do NOT moisturise skin within 2 hours prior to your sunless tanning application. Lotions can create a barrier, preventing the absorption of sunless tanning solution or lotions.
  • Remove make-up prior to sunless tanning for best results.
  • Wear dark loose fitting clothes. Sunless solution washes out for most clothing, but the cosmetic bronzer could wipe off on lighter coloured clothes, giving a temporary discolouration.
  • Do not wear wool, nylon or silk during or after your sunless application until you have washed off the residue. This should be done after 3 hours, as the sunless ingredients could cause those materials to stain.
  • With the use of most sunless spray equipment, you will need to apply barrier cream to palms of your hands, on hails and cuticles of both hands and feet and on any other areas where you do not wish to have a sunless tan develop. Ask us for any instruction if you are unsure whether the equipment you are using calls for the barrier cream.

The results from spray tanning are much better than applying creams and lotions by hand, plus the application process is a lot less messy.

You can use SPF creams that protect from the suns harmful rays (and sun bed rays) that cause burning and aging, and still have the perfect tan all day, all year.
