Pre Tan Instructions

Please read this entire page if you have not sprayed before.

For best results if feasible-

  •  Book your sunless tan 1-2 days before your event or trip.

  • Schedule ALL beauty appointments 24 hours (the day before) your sunless tan.

  • Do not use Dove, Bath and Body Works or Victoria Secret products a couple days before your sunless tan or throughout the life of your tan.

  • If feasible 1-2 weeks out start exfoliating & moisturizing your skin regularly.

  • 2 -3 days before increasing your water intake, coconut water or electrolyte drinks are a plus!

 

 

Shaving & Waxing-

Shave at least 24 hours before your appointment with a plain razor (no lubrication strip) OR wax 48 hours prior to your appointment if you are new to waxing or 24 hours if you wax regularly.

 

 

Prep Shower- IMPORTANT READ THIS PART SLOWLY!

The night before your appointment or that morning (at least 4 hours BEFORE) please wash hair, body, & LAST please exfoliate at the END of your shower with JUST an exfoliate mitt or glove & NO PRODUCT. JUST WATER. Do not use ANY PRODUCT TO EXFOLIATE.

We recommend getting ALL PRODUCT RESIDUE OFF YOUR SKIN at the END of your shower.

 

Please DO NOT use a washcloth or loofah to exfoliate. Please only use an exfoliate mitt or glove. You can get these on amazon, at TJ MAX, some grocery stores and beauty stores. 

 

PLEASE NOTE AGAIN- Do not use any product to exfoliate and be sure you do it at the END of your prep shower.

 

  • When you get out of your prep shower PLEASE DO NOT PUT ANYTHING ON YOUR SKIN.

  • Do not shower again after this prep shower.

  • No lotion, deodorant, fragrance, foundation or makeup.

  • You can put on some mascara and lipstick to get through the day, but that is it.

  • Wear LOOSE, baggy, dark clothing, with a loose shirt that is EASY to get over your head.

  • Wear LOOSE shoes with no socks or sandals.

  • We do not recommend putting on anything that will rub on your skin immediately after your spray tan this includes a bra. If you have to put on a bra please bring a LOOSE BRALETTE. 

  • Have all loose jewelry off before your appointment. (Stud piercings and rings are fine)

  • We require a bottom, but you can go topless if you like. Please wear a dark undergarment to be sprayed in.

  • If it is raining or snowing, please make sure all of the skin is covered & bring in an umbrella. In the rain please wear loose shoes with no socks like loose boots, no sandals or tight sneakers.

 

Please be sure to have spray tan safe products to use after your tan. These can be found on our safe product page. You will need these to maintain your tan and keep it from fading patchy.

 

Products made specifically to work with our solutions will boost your tan and increase its longevity, especially our anti aging tan booster that will help your tan last up to two weeks.

The Spray Process 

During the spray application process, we will have you do 45-degree right hand turns around the tent. During this time, we recommend not to step off the towel below you to ensure you do not get spray on the bottom of your feet. Please be sure to have your sandals on before stepping out of the tent. Try not to bump your elbows on the sides of the tent to ensure you do not get extra spray on your elbows. Please do not touch or adjust your undergarments while we are spraying you. 

 

Sunburns

Please know that there is a high probability that the DHA in the solution will cause your sunburn to peel. We strongly advise you to re-schedule your appointment until some sufficient time has passed for your skin to heal.

Pregnancy

We recommend getting a doctor's consent if you are in your 1st trimester.

We do not recommend spraying if you are a month out to your due date in case of an early birth or emergency c section.

Menstrual Cycle

Please be aware that if you have your menstrual cycle or you are near your menstrual cycle, the tan can either develop very light or not at all. This is very rare, but we have had this happen.

 

Medications 

Some medications can cause a spray tan to not develop or not last as long. This is very rare but please keep this in mind if you are on any strong medications.
