Prep & Care for your Tan

How Do I Prepare For My Spray Tanning Session?

For best results, any hair removal treatments such as shaving or waxing should be performed the day before your scheduled airbrush spray tan.

It is recommended that you exfoliate the day before your appointment in order to restore the skin’s natural oils. Exfoliation prepares the skin by removing dead skin cells which will ensure that your airbrush spray tan provides a better all-over glow and an even fade afterward.

Your skin should be free from applied products. Avoid using perfumes, deodorants, lotions, and creams as they may create a barrier between your skin and the sunless tanning solution.

What Should I Wear During And After My Spray Tanning Session?

This varies and is determined by your personal comfort level.  If you choose to tan in a bathing suit or undergarments, wear dark colors or older clothing.

After the application of your sunless tanning solution, dark loose-fitting clothing is the best choice to prevent any unwanted tan lines.

How Do I Maintain My Tan?

In order to extend the life of your spray tan, apply moisturizer twice daily after showering. This reduces the rate at which your skin exfoliates and will keep your spray tan looking better, longer.  Other considerations in maintaining your tan are… avoiding long hot showers or baths, avoiding extended time in chlorinated pools and avoiding products designed to exfoliate your skin.
