TAN PREP

Exfoliate head to toe a day+ prior to your appointment. An exfoliating mitt is best or opt for an oil-free body scrub. Any old self/spray tan should be removed

EXFOLIATE

SHAVING + WAXING

For best results and to avoid tan development issues, please follow our tan prep + aftercare instructions.

Shaving and waxing MUST be done a day+ prior to your appointment. Shaving and waxing day of will result in a streaky, discolored result + runs the risk of skin irritation from potential nicks/cuts

COMPLETE ALL OTHER BEAUTY SERVICES

Your tan is your last stop! All other beauty services must be done a day+ prior to your tan (mani/pedi, facial etc)

If you were unable to get your nails done prior to your tan, just a polish change is recommended. You do not want to be soaking/scrubbing/rubbing your fresh spray tan!

DAY OF 

Your skin must be free of deodorant, lotion, makeup, perfume etc. 

WE DO NOT RECOMMEND SHOWERING DAY OF: Showering, exfoliating, + shaving/waxing too close to your appointment alters your skin's pH and runs the risk of product residue staying on your skin. This will prevent the solution from adhering and developing properly. If you absolutely need to (ex. sweaty from a workout), just a quick water only rinse 4+ hours before your appointment.

POST SPRAY TAN OUTFIT

LONG: Wear long clothing to protect your tan while you're processing. This ensures it won't rub off on your seat/seat belt in the car + prevents any skin to skin transfer. Yes, even when it’s hot out you still want to wear long clothes. NO SHORTS, please!

LOOSE: Avoid anything tight! NO JEANS, LEGGINGS, BRAS, SOCKS/SNEAKERS etc. Tight clothing will rub off the solution causing a discolored result. Wear open toe sandals/flip flops

DARK: Fresh tans have the possibility of transferring onto your clothing. Our solutions are water soluble and will rinse out of most clothing however, we still suggest wearing something dark (preferably black)

Using just your hands and water, gently wipe the bronzer off your skin until the water runs clear. If you experiencing "streaking" there may be remaining bronzer, give it another rinse

You will see little to no color after all the bronzer is off, your tan will take 24 hours to fully develop

*Hormonal changes (period, pregnancy etc), medications, showering too close to your appointment/improper prep can all affect the outcome of your tan*

TAN CARE

Moisturize 1-2x daily using a spray tan friendly lotion

MOISTURIZE


Shaving exfoliates the skin and may compromise your sunless color. Use a new razor and be super gentle

SHAVING

SWIMMING

Limit your time in the water - chlorine and saltwater are very drying. Always rinse off afterwards and gently pat dry with your towel, no rubbing! Avoid hot tubs, steam rooms + long, hot showers and baths.

SPF

Your tan does not contain SPF and will not protect you from the sun. Lather up with your favorite spray tan friendly sunscreen, avoid aerosol and oil based.
