  • Exfoliate your skin before the session. The fresh skin cells will form a smooth base that your spray tan will stick to. The fresher the skin cells, the longer the life of the tan. A good scrub and an exfoliating mitt will allow the elimination of all the dead skin cells and impurities on the body. Pay attention to rough areas like the top of the feet, heels, ankles, elbows, knees, knuckles, etc.

 

  • Shave, wax and exfoliate the skin at least 24 hours prior to the appointment. It’s important to allow the amino acids to reconstruct as DHA needs amino acids to develop. Also, the pores need time to close before applying the solution. Otherwise, the bronzer can get soaked into the pores.

 

  • Do not wear any existing self-tanner or residue from a former spray tan on the skin.

 

  • Do not use lotions, oil-based exfoliating products, gels or waxing/shaving creams on the day of the appointment. These can leave a film and change the pH of the skin.

 

  • If you really need to take a shower before the appointment, take it 3 hours prior to the session and rinse only with warm water. The steam can open the pores.

 

  • Manicures, pedicures, facials and massages should be done days before the appointment.

 

  • If the skin is sweaty, make sure to dry it prior to the application.

 

  • Do not wear makeup, cream, sunscreen, perfume or deodorant.

 

  • The application can be done with or without undergarments or a bathing suit.

 

  • Wearing loose and dark clothes is recommended for after the session. Tight clothing can rub against the tan and remove color on some areas.

Heyyy! Skin should be exfoliated, bare, dry and clean prior to your spray tan.

  • Wait 8 to 12 hours or 1 to 5 hours before showering, depending on the solution. This is the period of time required for the development of spray tanning solutions.

  • Avoid activities that cause sweating or any contact with liquid during the development period. If it’s raining or snowing outside, you should wear long, concealing clothes.

  • If the session takes place in the evening, you should go to bed wearing long, loose clothes to prevent the bronzer from getting on your sheets.

  • Do not apply cream, makeup or perfume on the skin during the development period.

  • If you accidentally touch your skin during development, clean your fingers or inner hands with a wet and soapy cloth while carefully avoiding not wetting the rest of the hand.

  • If you accidentally come into contact with liquids during development, you can apply a fine layer of self tanning lotion on this specific area and rub the lotion around the area that came in contact with liquid, then blend in the remaining bronzer with the self tanning lotion. After the first shower, the result should look even.

  • Avoid body washes, lotions, sunscreens with alcohol, parabens, mineral or petroleum oil, or sulfates. Do not apply perfume directly on the areas that have been sprayed. The alcohol present in perfumes can affect the spray tan.

  • Use soft facial cleansers. Avoid oily or exfoliating ones as well as brushes. Beware of strong anti-acne products that dehydrate the skin!

  • Do not wax areas where solution has been applied. A delicate shaving may be done occasionally.

  • Moisturize the skin daily with an appropriate lotion. Do not exfoliate the skin for the duration of the result. When the tan will start fading, it’s essential to exfoliate the skin again in order to remove the old tan residue.

  • Excessive sweating, hot tubs, saunas, long baths and pools can cause a faster fading.

Q: What should I wear during my spray tan?

A: Girls wear anything, from full one-piece swimsuits, to bra and panties, to just panties(we recommend a thin snug thong) or bare.  Most babes go topless. If you prefer not to go topless, a strapless bikini top or bandeau is best for minimal tan lines.

 


Q: How does a spray tan work?

A: Spray tan session involves standing in a spray tan tent or booth, where a fine mist made of up tanning solution will be gently sprayed onto your body. The solution typically contains an active ingredient called Dihydroxyacetone (DHA). When DHA comes into contact with the amino acids in the outermost layer of the skin, a chemical reaction occurs, resulting in the darkening of the skin.

Here's a step-by-step breakdown of how spray tans work:

  1. Preparation: Before the spray tan, it is recommended to exfoliate your skin to remove any dead skin cells and create a smooth surface for the tanning solution. This helps to ensure an even application and longer-lasting results. It's also a good idea to avoid applying any lotions, oils, or perfumes to the skin before the tanning session.
     

  2. Application: Once your skin is prepped, a trained tanning technician or the individual themselves can use an airbrush gun or a spray tan booth to apply the tanning solution. The technician will evenly spray the solution onto your body, ensuring complete coverage. They may use various techniques to contour and enhance specific areas, such as muscles or body contours, for a more sculpted appearance if desired.
     

  3. Drying: After the tanning solution is applied, it's important to let it dry completely. The drying time may vary depending on the specific product used. During this time, it's best to avoid any activities that may cause sweating or rubbing, as it can impact the final result.
     

  4. Development: Over the next few hours, the DHA in the tanning solution will continue to react with the amino acids in your skin, gradually darkening the color. This development process can take several hours to fully complete.
     

  5. Showering: Once the recommended development time has passed (typically around 8 hours or as instructed by the tanning professional), you can rinse off the excess tanning solution with lukewarm water. Avoid using harsh soaps, exfoliants, or scrubbing too vigorously, as this can affect the longevity of the tan.
     

  6. Maintenance: To prolong the life of your spray tan, it's important to moisturize your skin daily and avoid activities that can cause excessive sweating or prolonged water exposure. Using tan-extending products or gradual tanning lotions can also help maintain the color.
