PRE TAN PREP

  • Exfoliate your skin 24 hours before your appointment. 

This is the most important step! 

If exfoliation is skipped or not done properly, the solution will be applied

to dead skin cells that will shed causing discoloration and blotchiness.

If you exfoliate too close to your appointment there is a chance that

 the solution will sit on the surface of your pores resulting in tiny brow dots.

   

Recommended Exfoliators: 

 Soap and Glory - Flake Away,  The Scrub of Your Life

Norvell - Exfoliator Body Scrub, Revive Skin Refining Scrub

Coffee Scrubs

Recommended Exfoliation Tools:

Exfoliation Gloves

Dry Brush

 

  • If you are showering the day of your appointment, 

        allow at least 5 hours in between your shower and your tan.

        This ensures that the skin will be fully dry for your appointment.

        If you shower too close to your appointment there is a chance

         that the solution will not adhere to your skin properly.

 

  • Hair removal should be done 24-48 hours before your appointment.

(shaving, waxing, hair removal cream, etc.)

   If you shave or wax too close to your appointment there is a chance

that the solution will sit on the top of your pores resulting in tiny brow dots.

  • Schedule all beauty services 1-2 days before to your appointment.

        (facials, massages, waxing, brows, lashes, etc.)

         A spray tan is the last thing you do on your beauty prep list.

  • Schedule your nail appointment 1-2 days before your appointment.

           If this does not work with your schedule let your nail technician know 

          you need a polish change without scrubs, lotions, oils or a hot towel.

  • Please don't apply products to your skin the day of your appointment.

       (make up, lotion, oil, deodorant, perfume, etc.)

        These products create a barrier on the skin that prevents the proper 

     absorption of the solution and can cause discoloration and blotchiness.

       Deodorant will cause green discoloration under the arm pit area.

 

  • Please keep in mind that what you wear

           during your session determines your tan lines.

        Recommended Clothing During Your Tan:

         Bathing suits, strapless bra, pasties, underwear, thongs.

 

  • Wear or bring loose-fitting dark clothing to put on after your tan. 

         Solution does come off of most clothing and fabrics when washed.

        Recommended Clothing After Your Tan: 

      Sweatpants, sweatshirts, T-shirts, long sleeve shirts, loose dresses.

 

  • Avoid wearing tight fitting clothing after your tan. 

          (leggings, yoga pants, tank tops, work out clothes, jeans, etc.)

             These types of clothing will rub against your skin 

           and interfere with the absorption process of your tan.

        No bra should be worn after unless one was worn during your session.

 

  • Flip flops, slides and slippers are best to be worn after your tan.  

       Socks, sneakers and boots can cause discoloration on the feet and ankles.

 

  • If there is a chance that it will rain or snow on the day of your tan,

        please make sure you have an umbrella and/or jacket with a hood.
