If you shave or wax any areas of your body, please do so before your tanning appointment (4-6 hours or night before). This allows time for your pores to close in order for a smooth application. For waxing, please do so at least 24h before.
Step Two - Exfoliate
Exfoliate. In the shower, exfoliate your body to get rid of any dead skin cells that may be present. Doing so will help the tanning application sit evenly on your skin.
Step Three - No Products
DO NOT put any MAKEUP, DEODORANT or MOISTURIZER on your skin prior to your tan. This will create a barrier on your skin and not allow for an even application. If you come to your appointment with makeup on please bring your own wipes for removal.
Step Four - Loose Clothing
Loose Clothing. Please wear/bring loose, dark clothing after your tan.
WHAT TO WEAR DURING YOUR TAN
For your tan, you may wear what you feel is comfortable depending on the tan lines or lack of tan lines you wish to achieve. Dark underwear is best. * Most clients wear underwear (i.e boxers, thong or underwear of choice) and go topless. *
Aftercare is just as important as the prep. The longevity of your tan will depend on how well you take care of your skin! Moisturizing twice a day is recommended and more if you have dry skin. The tan will mimic your skin so if your skin is dry and flakey, the tan will follow suit. (This is why it is so important to exfoliate leading up to the day of your spray tan!)
Standard tan aftercare: you must wait 8 hours before showering with the standard tan. Make sure the water is not too hot for your first shower! Pat dry and load on the cream! If you are sleeping with the standard tan on your skin, please wear long clothing to bed do avoid marks as you do not want skin on skin contact while you are sleeping!
Express tan aftercare: you may shower after 4 hours or earlier if you want your spray tan a bit lighter (3 - 3.5 hours leave on) Make sure the water is not too hot for your first shower! Pat dry and load on the cream!
