    What can I expect when booking my tanning session with Samantha Symonds?

    Samantha will initially ascertain your needs and requirements over the phone. Once this has been done an appointment will be made at a mutually agreeable time, at your desired location. Individual sessions are available only within the Eastern Suburbs; Samantha will however, travel to other locations within the Sydney metropolitan for groups larger than 5 people.

    Before your tan, it is essential you take a shower to wash off any dirt, sweat, make up, deodorant or moisturiser and allow the tanning product to be absorbed best by your skin.

    Before application Samantha will consult with you about your skin type and tanning requirements. There are two tanning types available: The 6 hour drying time product or a 2 hour rapid tan. The choice between the two will depend on your skin type and desired colour you wish to achieve.

    A portable tent and mist applicator will be provided for your comfort and convenience throughout your session. During application you may prefer to be nude or wear underwear. Don’t be shy about your preference, this is a very professional service.

    After you tan it’s important you avoid strenuous activities, which may cause you to sweat more than usual. If you choose the rapid tan you can shower after 2-3 hours, otherwise you need to wait 6 hours after your session before showering.
