The most common questions we get from our clients
Let’s Talk Prep:
Please schedule all waxing, facials, manicures and pedicures before your spray tan appointment. Any services conducted after your appointment may damage your spray tan.
Shave & exfoliate 24 hours before your scheduled appointment. Freshly shaven and exfoliated skin will produce the best results and increase the life of your spay tan. Pay extra attention to elbows, knees and heels, as these areas tend to be more dry.
Showering right before your appointment is highly discouraged. It will cause your pores to open, resulting in uneven absorption of the spray tan solution. If you absolutely must shower due to timing, please rinse thoroughly to remove any soap residue and finish with a cold water rinse to close your pores.
The day of your appointment do not wear any moisturizers, perfume, deodorant or makeup on your skin. It is extremely important that no skin barriers of any kind are present. These must be removed prior to your spray tan.
Let’s Talk Post-Tan:
Avoid showering, getting wet or sweating for time advised after your appointment.
Daily maintenance is a must! To increase the longevity of your tan, we highly recommend using a gentle non-acidic body wash and moisturizers that are paraben-free, and also contain zero or minimal sulfates, alcohol or fragrance.
Hydration is key to a long lasting spray tan. Using a Tan Extender at least once a day will improve the longevity of your tan. Tan Extending lotions contain a small % of DHA which will help moisturize and also provide a small amount of gradual color to keep your skin looking bronzed and beautiful.
Product usage is essential in maintaining a flawless and lasting tan. Ask me about my fabulous post-tan body products that will help your tan last longer and fade evenly!
If traveling on vacation after your spray tan, please know that exposing your spray tan to chlorinated pools, spas and salt water will result in early exfoliation of your spray tan. Purchasing our Tan Extender Lotion is a great option to hydrate and add a small amount of color to your spray tan.
