Try to use water based makeup wipes.

Deodorant -

Glasses - 

  • We recommend wearing contacts if you have them, if you don't thats totally okay we can work around it.

 

 

Please note -

Spray Process
Pregnancy

The Spray Process 

During the spray application process, we will have you do 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. Do not touch your arms down by your sides during your spray. We will direct you with all of this during  the process.

 

Sunburns

Please start moisturizing your sunburn as much as you can up until your spray tan. Please know that there is a chance that the DHA in the solution will cause your sunburn to re-peel. We will take all per cautions to reduce the chances of this happening however we cannot guarantee it.

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 such as thyroid 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. Acne medications or topicals can cause a spray tan to peel. Please let us know if you are using these products. 

Reach out to us if:

  • You have never used self-tanner or had a sunless tan before along with one of these reactions-

    • You have had any allergic reactions to cosmetics. 

    • You have had any allergic reactions to skin care products.
