18-24 Hours Prior To Session

  • It is important to exfoliate with gentle spa grade exfoliates designed for sunless tan preparation

  • If you do not have a suitable body scrub, it is recommended to use a gel body cleanser and a washcloth to exfoliate

  • Make sure to have any waxing, manicures and pedicures done prior to your session to avoid premature fading of your tan application



Day Of Session

  • Do no apply deodorant, perfume, body oils or moisturizers to skin (unless advised by your tanning professional) as this can create an uneven tan. Facial moisturizer is ok

  • Wear dark, loose fitting cotton clothing and flip flops to your spray tanning appointment to avoid visual rub off or staining of your clothing  

  • During the airbrush application session you may dress down to your comfort level.  Male clients are required to wear undergarments 



After Session Care

  • Avoid any activity that would cause sweating.  Contact with water or sweat could result in lines or uneven tanning

  • If you choose to sleep in your spray tan, wear a long sleeve cotton shirt and long cotton bottoms

  • The life of your spray tan depends on how well you take care of your skin.  It is important to always pat dry when exiting the shower

  • Moisturizing once a day with a tan extender lotion can add 2 to 3 days to the life of your tan

  • It is also important to use a gentle non acidic body wash to avoid stripping your tan

  • The following products have been shown to reduce the duration and quality of your tan: Anti-Aging, Acne product and Bar Soap

  • If at all possible, you should try and avoid contact with chlorine.  This can lead to premature fading of a spray tan

  • If there is any over- development on the palms of the hands, gently scrub with a kitchen sponge scratchy side or add salt and lemon juice to the darkened area and lightly exfoliate.  For over development on the bottom of the feet scrub with a pumice stone.  Any other areas of the body use a washcloth to lightly scrub to help lighten the color (over development does not always occur)
