PRE-TAN PREPARATION

  • Shower, exfoliate, and remove body hair before your tanning session. Do NOT use a moisturizing soap or body wash before you tan.  Make sure you scrub your entire body well.  Please don’t use loofas, as they make you streaky.

  • Shave at least 6 hours before your appointment.  If you tan right after shaving, your pores are wide open and you may get little dots on your legs!

  • Be sure to wash off any hair conditioner residue from your body with soap.

  • If your appointment is later in the day, you may need to shower before coming to remove any sweat and oils from the day.

  • Skin should be clean and dry before being sprayed. Don’t apply moisturizers, oils, or makeup before your tanning appointment. They can effect tan development. A little anti-perspirant is fine, though.

  • Wear dark, loose, easily cleaned clothing to appointment. Wear loose shoes. Bring an old swimsuit or undergarment to tan in. (wool, lycra, nylon, spandex, silk, rayon, and leather can all stain) We have disposable panties, or you may tan topless or nude if you prefer.

  • Style hair in a hairclip or ponytail so it will be off of face and neck.

  • You will not be able to get wet or sweaty for at least 6 to 8 hours, so please plan accordingly.

  • Bring a towel to cover leather or light colored seats.

  • If it is raining or snowing, bring an umbrella and/or hoodie.

  • If you get rained or snowed on, you will streak or spot!

AFTER-TAN CARE

  • Wear loose fitting clothing for 6 to 8 hours, while tan develops.

  • Don’t exercise, sweat, swim, or bathe for 6 to 8 hours.

  • After 8 to 12 hours, shower normally. Don’t use exfoliates or abrasives.

  • Wash with a mild shower gel or soap, preferably moisturizing. (Aveeno, Olay, Bath & Body Works, Suave, etc.) Use a mesh shower poof or washcloth (gently). 

  • Color wash off in the shower is normal: this is only the color guide tint. (bronzer) Your tan will continue to develop over the next 12 to 24 hours.

  • Pat (don’t rub) skin dry.

  • Apply a moisturizer or body butter to shower damp skin.  If you like, you can use a tan extender lotion; scrub palms after use with bar soap and a nailbrush so that they don’t turn orange.  Moisturize again before bed with a moisturizer.

  • Apply moisturizer twice a day (after showering & before bed) and if you choose, apply an extender once a day or every other day.

  • Avoid exfoliating skin. Some products can cause faster fading – bar soaps, alcohol based products such as toners and astringents, products that cause exfoliation such as AHAs, BHAs, Retin-A, etc. (anti-aging, anti-acne, regenerating, renewing) Make sure that you shave with a sharp razor to avoid exfoliating skin.

  • Hot tubs, swimming pools, and even extended time in the ocean will take off your tan.
