Before your Spray Tan (Prepping for a Flawless Tan):
Shave to remove unwanted body hair.
Exfoliate entire body with mild, oil free exfoliate 1 day prior to your tan. You can use raw sugar to exfoliate, this works wonders and makes your skin silky soft.
If you shower on the day of your tan, do not apply body oils or moisturizer (unless you have severe dry skin) as this can create a barrier on your skin.
Remove any make up and deodorant.
Pull hair up and away from face and neck with a hair tie. Remove contact lenses, clothing, shoes, and jewelry.
After your Spray Tan (Post-Tan Care):
Depending on whether you got an Express Spray Tan or our regular spray tan, our spray tan artist will discuss with you a recommended wash off time depending on your consultation and desired results. Anywhere from 8-10 hrs. for Express 24 hrs. for our traditional solution.
Within the next 8-10 hours of your custom spray tan, avoid any activity that would cause sweating: exercise, cleaning, or showering, as your spray tan is developing during these hours.
Contact with water or sweat could result in lines or uneven tanning. Shower after 8-10 hours with the first shower you will see the cosmetic bronzer wash away from your skin. This is completely normal, and is only the cosmetic bronzer (instant tan that you could see after your spray tan). The cosmetic bronzer is used to give immediate tan results. While you are drying, remember to pat not rub your skin.
Apply a moisturizer everyday this will make your beautiful tan last longer.
Extending The Life of your Spray Tan: (Post-Tan Care):
Shower with a mild moisturizing shower gel. Dove products are not recommended .
DO NOT EXFOLIATE! Pat dry.
The life of your spray tan depends on the care you take of your skin.
Moisturize twice a day, 48 hours the spray tan . Avoid chlorine.
The following products have been shown to reduce the number of days that a spray tan will remain on the skin: adhesive bandages, face masks, pore strips, anti- aging or anti-acne products, bar soaps, and hair removal creams.
