How do I get the most out of my spray tan?

How do I prepare for my spray tan session?

  1. Shower, shave, and exfoliate 24 hours prior to your session. This will rid the skin of dead cells and allow the tan to last longer. Your skin should be smooth, clean and dry to get optimal results.

  2. ​Avoid lotions and oils prior to tanning. This can affect absorption, resulting in streaking and beading of the solution, therefore causing minimal color.

  3. Avoid deodorant. Spraying over deodorant can cause green rings under your arm pits which ​​can be difficult to ​remove.

  4. Wear loose fitting, dark

          clothing, flip-flops and

          minimal or no make-up.

          Close-fitting or

          constricting clothes, such

          as denim, elastic, bra straps,

          and buckles will rub on

          your skin, and diminish the

          effect of your tan. 

  1. Do not shower or get wet for at least 10 hours after tanning, this is recommended to achieve the best possible results. If this is not possible at least 6 hours is advised. You will see color washing off the first time you shower. This is just the bronzer color that was applied. Your skin will continue to tan as the self tan reaction occurs on your skin.
  2. Limit physical activity (sweating) until the following day or 10 hours.
  3. To prolong your spray tan keep your skin hydrated, by using a moisturizer in the morning and evening. Hydrated skin makes your tan last longer and slows down the process of natural skin exfoliation. Alcohol based products are drying to the skin and can cause the tan to fade quicker and unevenly.
  4. To prolong your tan avoid exfoliating scrubs, long baths, steam rooms, pools and hot tubs, harsh soaps, hair removal creams and waxing.
  5. Be cautious when washing hands. Try and keep the water on your palms only and avoid splashing other areas of your skin, directly following your spray tan.
