Plan and Prepare For Your Treatment
Schedule your spray tan appropriately. For best results, refrain from exposure to moisture (showering, swimming, sweating from exercise, etc) for 24 hours following your spray tan.
One of our technicians will contact you the day before your appointment to help you prepare for your spray tan. Please be honest when answering their questions so they can best choose which formula is best for you.
24 hours before the appointment: Exfoliate thoroughly, shave and/or wax.
On the day of the appointment: Exfoliate mildly and avoid applying anything that could create a barrier for the sunless spray tan. For example, do not apply any moisturizers, deodorants, makeup, etc.
Wear loose-fitting, dark-colored clothing to the appointment.
If you would like, disposable undergarments, eye shields and nose filters are available for use during your session.
After Your Treatment
Using Sulfate and Paraben-free products will extend and preserve your sunless tan.
Using bar soap or body wash not developed for sunless tanning may strip away your tan.
The product being applied during the sunless application may contain instant cosmetic bronzers; this color is only temporary and will wash off during the first shower after your tan.
DHA is clear and can take up to 24 hours to fully develop. During this time, it is important to refrain from moisture build up on skin. (i.e. swimming, rain, showering, sweating, massage, manicures, pedicures).
If you must shower during the 24 - hour waiting period, use a warm water rinse only.
This may still lessen the overall result of the tan.
