For those who haven’t had time to work on their tans but want to look ready for the beach, Benefit Cosmetics has opened a store in Stanley that offers airbrush tanning. 

Its Bronzing Pro team can custom-blend a healthy glow in minutes, and offers four basic tan colours. Choose from Healthy Glow: a light golden glow, perfect for first-timers; Light: a natural golden glow; Medium: a post-holiday glow; Dark: for experienced tanners, a deep, rich tan for those who want to look darker than what they can achieve naturally in the sun.

The cost of a full body tan is HK$400, a half-body tan is HK$250, and a face and décolleté tan is HK$150. The tan will gradually fade over the next five to seven days.

Here are some tips for pre-tanning and tanning aftercare:

The night before:

  • Do not exfoliate skin on the face and body, especially knees, elbows and ankles
  • Do not use any other tanning products

The day of your tan:

  • Do not use deodorant, perfume or lotions since they contain oils which may react adversely to the treatment
  • Wear dark, loose fitting clothes and sandals or flip flops since some of the colour may be transferred to the clothing
  • Paper knickers are provided and bras can be kept on during the treatment
  • Wear a dark swimsuit or old underwear to tan in

After your session:

  • To give the tanning solution time to work, avoid showering, bathing, working out, swimming or getting wet for eight to 12 hours
  • Keep skin moisturised especially after showering to retain the tan
  • Do not exfoliate skin until your tan has faded
  • Do not use any other tanning products
