What you'll need:

The VANI-T Tan Handy Personal Tanning System is the best and worthwhile investment if you are planning to spray tan on a regular basis.


Assembling Your Tan Handy

To use, attach the spray tan gun (with handle and tan solution compartment) to the mini turbine by inserting the bottom of the handle of the gun into the connector of the mini turbine. Turn it clockwise until it feels firm, and secure the gun to the mini turbine. This will lock the spray tan gun perfectly into place.

Prior to tanning, exfoliate your skin in the shower with the VANI-T Exfoliating Mitt to create a smooth clean base for your tan to be applied on. Exfoliating properly will also ensure that your tan will fade evenly – avoiding the blotchiness. Preparation the number one key to a flawless tan.

Also make sure your skin is clean, dry and free of any other chemicals such as shampoos, oils, deodorants, perfumes or moisturisers prior to using your Tan Handy. Put your hair into tight bun or even a shower cap/ hair net to be protect, Make sure all your jewellery has been removed too. Now you’re ready to tan!

How it Works:

The machine features Micro Whirlwind Technology that delivers a constant stream of smooth air. Designed for the professional DIY spray tan, the Tan Handy incorporates the spray tan gun and the turbines into one unit and eliminates the large hoses that many other machines include. 

The Tan Handy works and feels like a hair dryer but only lighter and quieter than your average hair dryer, it plugs directly into a wall socket and is also lighter than most hairdryers.  


How to Get a Professional Spray Tan at Home:

  • Exfoliating is the first and one of the most important steps when it comes to preparing your body for a tan. Exfoliation removes old skin cells on the body. The old skin cells can leave the skin dry and rough. After exfoliating, a fresh new layer of cells is exposed leaving your skin looking renewed and fresh. These cells leave a consistent surface on your body - perfect for an even, streak-free tan.

  • Remove any  deodorants, perfumes, lotions, moisturisers, makeup, and jewellery. This will ensure your tan turns out perfectly. Wearing deodorant while tanning can make your underarms turn a green colour.  

  • Fill the VANI-T Tan Handy cup with your favourite VANI-T solution. (200 ml solution of your choice included within the bundle) Turn the unit on and get ready to spray tan. To use the machine, simply hold the machine about 10 to 20 centimetres away from the body and administer the spray in a gentle, sweeping motion, making sure to use a constant pace so the tan is sprayed in even amounts.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
  • Practice your spraying technique using a steady, sweeping motion and ensure that the machine is moving at all times. Otherwise, if the spray tan dwells on a spot for longer than the rest of your body, you will find your result features several darker spots than the rest of your body. Not ideal!

  • Spray tan your legs, arm, face… your entire body. If you are wanting to avoid spray tanning your face, we have an alternative option, simply add  2-3 drops of our Glow+ Self Tan Drops and mix with your favourite moisturiser. If you’re not using a pop-up tent, apply the tan in your bathroom. Since you need to check your body for any missed areas, a good idea is to spray tan in front of a full-length mirror.
