How to Prep for your Spray Tan!
How well you prep and take care of your spray tan will determine the results and longevity of your tan!
Your tan can last anywhere between 7-10 days!
Do not shower or sweat after your tan. This allows your tan to fully develop it’s color.
Do not shave for the first 12 hours after your spray and first shower.
Use hand sanitizer to wash your hands or wash palms only during developing time.
Avoid using moisturizers and applying deodorant during developing time.
Wearing socks or closed shoes can cause your tan to develop unevenly on your feet, please avoid wearing either for at least the first 2 hours of your tan.
Avoid wearing tight clothing for at least the first 5 hours of your tan, tight clothing could render your tan splotchy.
Your tan will fade as your skin naturally sheds or exfoliates. Using a loofah or washcloth will fade your tan faster. Make sure to pat dry with your towel!
I recommend scheduling your next session once your old tan is completely gone. Coming in with an old tan still on the skin can cause build up and uneven results!

The night before your Tan
Shower thoroughly and exfoliate, this will remove dead skin, and provide a smooth surface for your tan to ensure even coverage and lengthen the duration of your tan. I recommend not using any kind of scrubs that contain oil in them. Exfoliating gloves are excellent to use!
Any manicure or pedicure should be done at least one day before the day of your tan. A polish change is your only option after a spray tan.
If you are using Dove products please stop using them at least two days before your tan and for the duration of the tan (7-10 days). Dove soap can leave a film on your skin that leads to a blotchy tan.
Shaving and waxing should be done the night before. Shaving the day of can cause pore spotting or if there is any sign of razor burn, it may leave streaks.
Moisturize after your shower, but not the day of your tan. Remember, clean skin!
The day of your Tan
Bring in dark loose fitting clothing and flip flops. Tight fitting clothing worn on a fresh tan can rub the solution off and leave your tan patchy. If it's stretchy material but clings to the skin it's too tight! Top preferably zip or button up! Please wear loose sweat pants! WARNING.. if you choose to wear shorts/skirt and expose your legs, your chances of harming your tan increase and you will get solution/bronzer on your car seats!
IF IT'S RAINING, bring an umbrella and cover up skin as much as possible! NO SHORTS!
NO moisturizer, perfume/cologne, deodorant or make up on skin, if you come in with make up and you want your face sprayed, you must bring a makeup wipe to remove before session.
Women may spray however you are comfortable. Men must wear boxers or briefs. Does not stain clothes or sheets!
* Schedule 2 days before a special occasion or before you leave for vacation!
* If you are pregnant, you must consult with your doctor before you can be sprayed!
