Prepare

For the Healthiest Tan....Start with the Healthiest Skin

  1. MOISTURIZE for a week prior to your spray tan, especially if you have dry skin, to ensure as much of an even tan and no flaking for the longevity of your spray tan!
  2. Exfoliate your skin 2-3 days consecutively up to the day of your spray tan followed with moisturizing. DO NOT use lotions or moisturizers the day of your tan after you have exfoliated. After your first tan, you want to exfoliate well RIGHT BEFORE your next one to keep your prior one lasting and to remove any build up and dead skin cells that are about to come off so your new tan will not shed as well.
  3. Use oil-free products. Baking soda, a lufa or exfoliating mit, and hot bath works great for a good exfoliation.
  4. Exfoliate neck, chest, face, crease of arms, behind knees, and feet WELL.
  5. Wax a minimum of 24 hours before your appointment. DO NOT wax after appointment.
  6. Manicures and pedicures should be done BEFORE your tanning appointment.
  7. Shave 8 hours before or after appointment. Use a clean, sharp razor.
  8. Remove or avoid wearing make-up, deodorant, and moisturizer the day of appointment.
  9. Wear dark, loose fitting clothing post your tanning appointment, anything tight or restricting will cause the solution to rub off. No gym, keep perspiration minimized while the solution is developing as it can cause streaking.
  10. If raining or wet weather, please dress in long loose clothing to protect the solution from getting wet and causing streakiness. Use an umbrella for the day until your first rinse off.
  11. If sleeping overnight with solution, it is recommended to wear long loose clothing to bed to protect the skin from rubbing and solution from moving.
