Pre Tan:

Hey ladies and Gents before your spray tan,  please make sure to exfoliate and shave at least 2 hours before your appointment. For the best results, the exfoliation process should start 48 hours before your tan, but we understand life happens!

 

Do not put on any deodorant, lotion, or oil the day of your appointment.

 

Wear dark loose clothing to your appointment.

 

If you are getting a manicure or a pedicure, please do before your spray tan. 

 

48 hours before tanning, I suggest you scrubbing with a sugar scrub(sulfate-free, organic/vegan). Scrubbing with a sugar scrub right before the tan can leave an invisible moisture film over the skin. Causing the tan not properly be able to absorb into the skin.

 

24 hours before your tan you want to exfoliate with an exfoliating mitt(which we sell in our online store). A loofah or washcloth is not good enough.It will not properly remove your dead skin. You also want to shave 24 hours before. Shaving right before your Spray Tan can sometimes cause small tiny dots. You can Shave after however. Please ask your, technician, how to properly shave after spray tan.

If your appointment is before noon the following day. Do not Shower in the morning. Showering right before your Spray Tan Can cause your pores to open. Causing the spray tan to not properly absorb into the skin.

Let’s say you were getting a spray tan and it’s a few hours before. You do not want to use any sugar scrub. You only want to use a hard brush or an exfoliating mitt.

 

If you are prepping for your tan right before your appointment, use cold water so that your pores stay as close as possible.

After Your Tan:

Leave spray tan on at least 8 hours after your initial spray tan. However, for Express spray tans you leave on your tan 1-4 Hours, before Rinsing.

 

It is important that you do not get your skin wet or sweat during the first 8 hours to ensure that you do not develop any streaking or spotting. (1-4 hours for Express)

 

Don't be alarmed when you see the bronzer washing off in the shower, it is completely normal and it is not your color washing off. Just the bronzer.

 

When drying yourself after your shower pat your skin dry instead of rubbing your skin.

 

Be cautious of Oceans & pools, as they tend to fade your spray tan. Quick dips in and quick dips out. Make sure to rinse after pool and ocean.

After your tan you should be using our Glo Soap to wash with to prolong your tan.

 

After your spray tan, it is important to moisturize at least twice a day. I recommend using HEMPZ Body Moisturizer which we sell at the studio and online.

 

Please avoid oil as it will remove the spray tan.

Sunscreen is a must. We recommend Sun Bum.

 

Do not exfoliate skin or rub harshly after a spray tan, as this may remove the tan.
