Hints & Tips

Spray Tanning Top Tips!

Top tip: best results are achieved when you pay extra special attention to the following tips:

  • Wax or shave at least 24 hours before your tan.
  • Exfoliate and moisturise 24-48 hours before your tan.
  • Remove make up, deodorant & jewellery before your appointment to save time.
  • Wear loose, dark clothing and open toe shoes straight after to allow the tan to develop evenly.
  • Remember it takes at least 8 hours for St Tropez tan to develop, or 1-3 for Velocity tan - so no showering it off before then!
  • As our spray tan is so popular, client appointments are often back to back so we request that you arrive on time, or preferably early for your appointment to ensure you do not miss your slot.

* After your tan we recommend you use St Tropez homecare to prolong the life of your tan.  We stock a wide range of homecare and your therapist will happily advise you hop to get the best results.


Preparing for your wedding

Organising your wedding is one of the most stressful but enjoyable things you can do! However, brides nearly always leave one of the most important things until it is nearly too late...skincare treatments, of course not forgetting make-up, tanning, hands & feet!

Esqué is the perfect place to help you look your very best for the big day.

We recommend that you plan to start any specific skin care treatments 6 months before your wedding, this will allow your skin time to adjust to any products or treatments and will give the clarification process enough time to ensure flawless, radiant skin on the big day.

The first step is to arrange a skin consultation. We'll assess your skin's condition and suggest a course of treatments that will provide the best results. Skin care treatments can vary greatly from person to person, but we have detailed a typical treatment plan below.

6 months before the day

Skin consultation
Facial treatment (will continue monthly)
