The quickest way to get an instant tan a Sunbed session plus a Sunless session- this is called a Cocktail Tan. The benefit of cocktail tanning is that the UV rays trigger melanin production, while opening up your pores and allowing the sunless spray solution to penetrate your skin. A cocktail tan will leave you with an even darker, deeper and longer-lasting tan and it will have the quickest and most dramatic tanning result. The Tanning Cove staff suggests a sunbed session prior to your sunless tan although if you prefer, you can pop into our stand-up booth after a spray tan if you feel you need a little more dry time.
A Cocktail tan is just an extra $10 and you are able to tan in any level bed. We suggest our 8 minute Stand-up booth or our 15 minute lay-down for 10 minutes. If you plan on Cocktail Tanning prior to your sunless visit, please arrive at least 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time and let us know when you book your appointment.
Amplify your Cocktail Tan by using a "primer" Cocktail lotion like So Naughty Nude 2-in-1 lotion before your sunbed tan. This lotion will prepare your skin for a dark UV color development while allowing for better absorption from our sunless solution. Your skin will be moisturized without creating a barrier from the solution and it helps improve in an all over dark even tan. This is the only suggested lotion to use while Cocktail Tanning because it will not fill the pores or create a barrier to the skin.
With sunless spray tanning you get a natural-looking tan with just one 10 minute session. Our technicians will choose one of our seven shades of color to perfectly match your skin tone to go a few shades darker for a great "just off the beach" bronzed glow.
It is important to remember a Spray Tan is a cosmetic tan and will ware away as your skin naturally exfoliates and it does not provide protection from the sun's rays. Try Cocktail Tanning for a deeper look to your spray.
