PRE TAN CARE
If tanning for a special event or occasion, it is recommended to schedule your custom airbush tan the day before. Our tanning solution contains cosmetic bronzers to give you immediate natural looking color, however the best tan develops 8-10 hours after your initial application. We often suggest tanning the evening before an event and waiting until morning to rinse off the bronzing solution if possible. Also, please keep in mind your entire pre-event beauty plan when making your appointment. Facials, massages, and exfoliating manicures or pedicures are best done before tanning to prevent uneven wear of your tan.
EXFOLIATE & SHAVE
It’s extremely important to start with a fresh, clean layer of skin. Exfoliating 24 hours before your tan will ensure a longer lasting, more even tan. Be sure to avoid oil based products and focus on rough areas, like the knees and elbows.
NO MAKEUP OR LOTION
The day of your spray tan, avoid any lotions, perfumes, or deodorants. Excess oils can prevent absorption during application. If tanning your face, you will also want to avoid wearing makeup (eye makeup is okay).
WHAT TO WEAR
You may tan in as much or as little as you like. We aren’t shy if you aren’t! Keep in mind that whatever you wear will leave a tan line! We also provide disposable thongs to all of our clients at the beginning of the appointment.
WHAT TO WEAR
You will be safe to dress immediately after your tan. It is recommended that you wear loose-fitting clothing though to prevent rubbing and uneven wear until after your first shower. Please be aware that the tanning solution contains a cosmetic bronzer that may transfer to your clothing. It is unlikely, but there is a risk of staining, so dark colored clothing is recommended.
The longer you can wait to rinse off, the better your spray tan will develop. We recommend waiting 8-10 hrs before showering or getting wet for the best color. Sweating can also cause streaking in your initial bronze, so avoid the gym and other strenuous activity until after your first shower. We recommend waiting 8-10 hrs (1-4 hrs if using the rapid development solution) before showering or getting wet for the best color.
Use a gentle cleanser and avoid exfoliating until you are ready for your next tan. Exfoliating encourages skin renewal and should only be done pre-tan.
MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE!
Hydrated skin will hold a spray tan longer and ensure an even, flawless fade. Moisturize using a paraben-free and alcohol free lotion twice daily for a minimum of one week.
