How to Prepare for your TAN
*It is recommended that you have any facial or body waxing done prior to your spray tan. DO NOT get waxed after your spray tan and before your initial shower. Exfoliate any wax before coming to tan.
Waxing of eyebrows and lips should be done prior to your tan. It is okay to have your eyebrows plucked the same day after your tan. Threading can be done after your initial shower.
*Please exfoliate with a non-oil based, gritty scrub or exfoliant prior to your tan. You want to remove all dead skin so your tan looks as even as possible.*•It is recommended that you limit the amount you shave after your spray tan, as shaving is a form of exfoliation. However, shaving after your initial shower is okay.
*We have makeup wipes/baby wipes in the salon if you need to remove makeup prior to your appointment. We still prefer for you to remove any lotion you have on at the time of your appointment, however we recommend that for the best results you remove the lotion in the shower or do not apply any lotion on after you get out of the shower before your appointment. If you have dry elbows or knees or any spots that tend to soak the tan up, you can apply a light thin layer of Vaseline Lotion before coming lightly. Example would be ankles, feet , wrist, and knees or any dark spots (aging spots).
* It is okay to have deodorant on during your tan although it may turn green while tanning, but this will go away.
The pH Balancing Sunless Prep Spray w/tan $5 Helps you achieve the best color because it takes anything off of your skin that could be causing a barrier for the solution to set in or to turn the right color. Get the full benefit on Sunless Tanning with the Pre Spray!

What to Expect After Your Spray Tan
*If it is raining or snowing the day of your appointment, it is recommended that you bring an umbrella and/or wear protective clothing - such as long pants, long-sleeved shirts and a sweatshirt.
If you take your bra off when you're getting sprayed, we do not recommend that you put it back on immediately after. If you need to put a bra on after your spray tan, we DO NOT RECOMMEND sports bras; however, we do recommend putting your bra on the loosest strap with the bra straps tucked in.
*You will feel a little sticky and the spray tan does have a slight odor to it – this is normal. You will feel sticky until your first shower.
*Try not to touch your skin to see if you are sticky. The solution does feel sticky while it is in the developing phase before your first shower and this is normal.
*If you touch your skin and do not wash the insides of your hands, your palms may end up becoming stained because palms are not supposed to come in contact with the spray tan solution. If you do accidentally touch your skin wash the insides of your hands as directed by your spray tan specialist!
* When needed, wash only the insides of your hands while the spray tan is developing. The most effective way to do this is with hand sanitizer or an antibacterial wipe. If you do not have these available, you can also use a paper towel or towel with soap. Your spray tan specialist will walk you through this process at the end of your appointment.
*The bronzer may get on the inside of your clothes or on your sheets. It should not stain, however we cannot guarantee this. Dark colored clothing is recommended and wearing long sleeves and long pants to bed can prevent the bronzer from coming off on your sheets.

Day of your Spray Tan
*It is recommended that you do not shower for 8-10 hours if you use our original formula and 1-10 if you use Bora Bora. Showering before this time frame may lighten up your color or take the spray tan off.
*No sweating, swimming, getting wet or exercising until your first shower after your spray tan. Doing so may cause streaks.
*DO NOT wash your face before your first shower. This also goes for not washing any makeup off your face before you go to bed. Sleep with your makeup on!
*Putting makeup on after your spray tan is okay, however you CANNOT wash your face until your initial shower.
*There is a heavy bronzer in our solution, which means that you will have some color immediately after you are sprayed. The color will continue to darken as the solution develops. Your color will lighten after you shower off the bronzer. You will see color coming off in your first shower. This is normal. Your spray tan is not washing off, it is just bronzer.
* Shower before working out, going to school or sweating. Working out with the bronzer on may cause your tan to streak. We recommend rinsing the bronzer off, then working out and then taking a full shower - just so you do not have to take two full showers back-to-back.
*Go easy around water the day you get sprayed – this includes everything from doing dishes to brushing your teeth. While you can still do these things, it is recommended that you use caution when you are near water to ensure you do not mess up your spray tan.
* If you have small children, it is recommended that you bathe them prior to your spray tan.
* If you are wearing your spray tan to bed, we recommend wearing long sleeves and long pants or covering your hands with socks while you sleep. This will prevent the spray tan from transferring to your hands while you're sleeping and making them extra dark! This step is extremely important.
*If you are coming later in the day/night and you can put on the clothes that you are wearing to bed, this is useful!
*If you take your bra off when you get sprayed, we recommend leaving it off for as long as you can after your spray tan. Sports bras are NOT recommended to wear after your tan. If you have to put a bra on, we recommend wearing a strapless bra or tucking the bra straps in.
How To Maintain
*Pat dry after your shower. Vigorous rubbing will exfoliate your skin and your tan will not last as long.
*DO NOT exfoliate with loufas, body scrubs, or soaps with exfoliating beads until your tan starts to fade away.
*DO NOT use scented body washes - such as Victoria's Secret and Bath and Body Works. Non-scented/fragrance-free body washes and soaps are RECOMMENDED. SCENTED BODY WASHES AND SOAPS ARE NOT RECOMMENDED. We recommend Oil of Olay Shea butter body wash on a loufas gently daily.
*Limit the shaving of your leg. You can still shave your legs, however we do not recommend doing it daily.We suggest shaving with hair Conditioner to help with removing the tan as much. We DO NOT RECOMMEND using hair removal creams, such as Nair. This will remove your spray tan.
*The tan is not going to just disappear, you are going to notice it fading. You can start exfoliating when you notice it is starting to fade and/or in preparation for your next tan. A light exfoliation will help with the fading process. If you notice and area that is uneven or blotchy do circular motions with a rag and body wash in the darker spots. It helps from taking it all the way off and starting over before you have to. It will seem a little lighter all over on your second week but this is normal. Good spray tans do not last forever and bad ones do.
*Face washes containing salicylic acid and/or benzoyl peroxide are NOT RECOMMENDED because they can eat away at your spray tan. Your face will fade faster as you wash it more frequently. We recommend using gentle cleansers - exfoliating face washes + Clarisonics are NOT RECOMMENDED. We have a face and body touch up spray at the salon for $10.00 it helps with this process.
* Acne spot treatments are also NOT RECOMMENDED during the week your spray tan is on.
*Moisturizing helps extend the life of your tan and it helps your tan to fade more evenly. We recommend using a hydrating, non-scented/fragrance-free lotion! SCENTED LOTIONS - I.E. VICTORIA'S SECRET & BATH AND BODY WORKS - ARE NOT RECOMMENDED! Aveeno lotions are also NOT RECOMMENDED! Cocoa butter lotion is okay to use, even though it does have a scent and Vaseline Intensive Care in the Yellow bottle works great with a spray tan. It is best to not over moisturize your skin in the areas that bend example behind knees or arm bending area. This will make those areas fade faster especially in the summer.
*Spray tans typically last 7-14 days, however they can last longer or shorter than this. The more you moisturize, the longer the tan can last. You can use any moisturizer, but moisturizers containing self-tanners are not recommended in the first week because they can have adverse effects. Any hydrating, non-scented/fragrance-free + alcohol-free moisturizer is recommend!
We sale and extender in the salon for the second week.
* It is recommended to moisturize at least once a day, however twice a day is encouraged. You can start moisturizing after your first shower. NON-SCENTED/FRAGRANCE-FREE moisturizer is RECOMMENDED!
*Always wear sunscreen when out in the sun. We also recommend mixing non-scented moisturizer with your sunscreen and putting both on at the same time each time you would normally apply your sunscreen - especially after prolonged exposure to the sun, being in the ocean or being in the pool. This will help extend the life of your spray tan.
* Wait at least one day before going in the ocean or a pool after your tan. Chlorine may make your tan fade faster, however it is not going to remove the tan immediately.
Hot TUBS will take it off within 30 minutes of being in the hot tub :( So only do this if you are ready for it to come off).
Get the Spray Tan Off and Start Over
*Shower and Exfoliate for best results do not exfoliate with a sugar scrub most salt scrubs give best results. I personally like to do this the night before or several hours before tanning to allow your skin to dry all the way out. I personally like to take a hot hot bath for 30-45 minutes with 2 cups of Epson Salt and 2 cups of baking soda and 1 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar to balance your skins PH for best results.. This is also great to do in between tans to get your last tan off in order to get a fresh tan with great results. 30 minutes is the trick to getting all of the tan off. Stay in and after the 30 minutes use and exfoliating cloth or glove set to remove the remaining tan.
See you soon for your next one.
