BEFORE YOUR SPRAY TAN: Shave, shower, and exfoliate the night before your spray tanning appointment.( NOT the day of)Sulfate free body washes are best!!!Avoid body washes with oils (Olay, Dove) They can leave a film on your skin and cause the spray tan to develop unevenly.It is best to wash your hair first to avoid leaving any residue from shampoos and conditioners.
Continue to avoid these same products after your spray tan. Sulfates and mineral oils can strip the tan quicker. Do not use bar soap!!Shampoo/ conditioners are fine!!
If you cannot shower the evening before your appointment, a shower six hours before your session is acceptable. Showering too close to your spray tan can disrupt the Ph balance on your skin and cause your tan to not develop properly.
Do not come to your appointment straight from the gym, sweat will create a barrier to the spray tan solution.
Waxing and spa services such as pedicures, massages, and facials, should be done two days before your spray tan appointment. Any later and you risk having the oils leave a barrier upon your skin.
Do not use deodorant, makeup, perfume, or moisturizers (including the moisture strip on a razor) the day of your tanning session.
Bring dark loose fitting clothing and flip flops.
You may tan in the undergarment of your choice, preferably a dark color.
Dark swimwear or underwear are ideal to tan in. I also offer disposable (and tiny) thong panties. Many women desire minimal tan lines and go topless. You may wear as much or as little as you are comfortable with.
Ladies may tan topless, though bathing suits and underwear also work well.
Pull your hair back high and tight on top of your head if possible.
Men must wear full coverage underwear or swimwear and clients under the age of 18 must also wear appropriate swimwear.
