Exfoliate head to toe! An exfoliating mitt is best or opt for an oil-free body scrub. Any old self/spray tan should be removed
Moisturize daily up until the day of your tan (there should be nothing on your skin the day of). Focus especially on areas that tend to be dry - hands, feet, ankles, knees, elbows
SHAVING + WAXING
Shaving and waxing must be done at least 24+hrs prior to your appointment, not the day of!
WASH YOUR HAIR
Your first rinse must be water only, no soap. Wash your hair prior to your appointment or plan your hair wash schedule around your tan
COMPLETE ALL OTHER BEAUTY SERVICES
Your tan is your last stop! All other beauty services must be done at least 24hrs 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!
Your skin must be free of deodorant, lotion, makeup, perfume etc.
WE DO NOT RECOMMEND SHOWERING DAY OF: Showering, shaving, and exfoliating too close to your appointment alters your skin's pH and also runs the risk of product residue staying on your skin. Leftover product will create a barrier, preventing the solution from penetrating and developing properly. If you absolutely need to, 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, sneakers etc. Tight clothing will rub off the solution causing an uneven, discolored result. Breathable cotton material is best. Opt for 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)
