Spray Tan Prep & Aftercare
Spray Tan Prep
- Drink a lot of water & use lotion in the days leading up to your appointment.
- Exfoliate well and shave the day before your appointment.
- Please schedule all other beauty appointments (nails, hair, waxing, massages, etc.) at least 24 hours BEFORE your scheduled tan.
- The day of your appointment, lightly exfoliate and rinse your skin of any makeup, lotion or deodorant. Having these on your skin during application can act as a barrier, and prevent an even application.
- You may tan fully nude, wear a bathing suit, or bottoms and go topless. Whatever makes you comfortable! Just please keep tan lines in mind!
- Have or wear dark, loose clothing and flip flops for immediately after your session.
Spray Tan Aftercare
- Do not get wet or shower/bathe for 6 to 8 hours after application. Your spray tan technician will advise you when to rinse.
- Do not use soap during your first shower. (You may use soap like normal after your first rinse). Using warm water and your hands, with medium/firm pressure, rinse off all of the cosmetic bronzer. You will see the water run brown; this is not your tan coming off! Don’t worry!
- Use lotion twice daily beginning after your first rinse. We recommend our Tan Extender Lotion for just the right amount of hydration and to add three to four days to the life of your tan.
- Certain oils as well as steam/heat can break down your tan. Shoot for quicker, warm showers versus hot showers. Sitting in spas/saunas, jacuzzis, hot baths, steam rooms, etc. may cause your tan to fade quicker.
- Pat dry after you bathe or swim, do not rub.
- Drink lots of water! Beautiful tans start from within! A hydrated body equals more beautiful and long lasting tans!
- Your tan should last approximately five to seven days, based on how well you care for it.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT A SPRAY TAN DOES NOT CONTAIN SPF AND WILL NOT PROTECT YOU FROM HARMFUL UV RAYS. WE SUGGEST USING A SPF OF AT LEAST 30 DAILY.
