Follow these CRUCIAL steps in your preparation to ensure flawless results
Shower + Exfoliate
Shower + exfoliate 24 HRS before your appointment.
Avoid using products that may contain essential oils.
This will prepare your skin, leaving it clean with an even surface, but giving it time to gain some natural body oils
Shave + Wax
If you shave, this step should be done at least 24 hours before your spray tan session. If you wax, this step should be done 48 hours before your appointment as waxy residue will block tanner absorption.
No moisturizers, creams, oils, perfumes, body sprays or lotions of any type before your tan session. No makeup, no deodorant. We have makeup wipes, if needed. Please DO NOT shower before your appointment. Make sure you are not on an empty stomach
Try to keep skin dry + cool, no sweating or water contact while developing, this can result in blotching. Avoid skin to skin contact (intimacy or breast feeding etc.)
Absolutely no water contact on your skin.
Loose Fitting Clothes
Dress for the weather and bring a change of dark, loose clothing. No tight-fitting light clothes (no yoga pants/tight jeans) Please note that your clothing may pick up some of the spray bronzer, but it will not stain and easily washes out.
Long sleeves and long pants will keep your fresh tan protected during your development time
Rinse + Moisturize
Rinse your body with LUKEWARM water only (no soap, shampoo, conditioner, loofahs or wash cloths). Please do not use steaming hot water.
Rinse until the water runs clear, gently pat dry your skin after your shower, do not rub or wipe too hard with the towel.
Moisturize with a spray tan friendly moisturizer immediately after your rinse.
After Your Tan
Baby Your Skin
Keeping your skin moisturized is key, we recommend a spray tan friendly moisturizers at least 2x a day. Do not apply body sprays/perfumes or colognes directly on your skin as they contain high levels of alcohol + will dry out your skin + will leave your skin patchy (try spraying on clothes or hair instead of skin)
Heat + Steam
Avoid long, hot showers or baths, excessively sweating, + scrubbing the skin as this can result in a patchy or uneven fade
Swimming pools, jacuzzies, saunas, + steam rooms may all shorten the length of your tan.
if you plan on being in chlorine or natural salt water, a thick layer of SPF lotion should help protect your tan.
Drink Your Water!!
A spray tan can make your skin very thirsty so its super important to drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin from the inside out!
This will help keep your smooth skin glowing and your spray tan lasting and fading evenly.
