Spray Tan Prep and After Care
Schedule your appointment for organic spray tanning 24-hours prior to your special occasion or event.
Airbrush tans generally require 12 hours to set-in and fully activate with your skin. So, you want to give yourself plenty of time before your sexy occasion.
Allow your airbrush tan to settle in and provide some wiggle room in the unlikely event that you have any issues with your spray tan.
Shave: On the day prior to tanning shave all areas of your body that you normally shave with a fresh razor and quality shaving cream. Shaving on the day of your spray tan may leave some skin pores open, which will show up as tiny pin points. Shaving a day prior allows the pores to close after shaving. If you wax, do this two days prior to your airbrush tan, unless you are sugaring/sugar waxing you can spray tan directly after your appointment!
Wash your body thoroughly with a non-moisturizing soap or body wash.
Exfoliate: Using a loofah, glove or body scrub mitt exfoliate that body! Slough it all off! Pay extra attention to your knees, heels and elbows as this is where we tend to have extra patches of rough skin.
After showering, DO NOT apply any lotions, deodorants, perfumes or make-up. Your skin can now easily absorb the organic spray tanning formula that will give you a beautiful airbrush spray tan.
If you must wear make-up to your appointment, it can be washed off right before your session.
DAY OF : Wear loose-fitting, dark clothing to your appointment. Avoid jeans, bras, socks, sneakers, watches - Anything tight against the skin will be too abrasive and could rub off your organic spray tan before it has a chance to set in. Your airbrush spray tan will set in 12 hours after your session.
Rule number 1 : Avoid getting wet while your tan develops
Do not apply moisturizer, deodorant or foundation until after your first shower
Avoid physical exercise, heat or other situations where you might sweat before your first shower to allow the tan to develop fully.
After your first shower, MOISTURIZE!!! But avoid any products that contain mineral oil. Just say no to parabens!
After your first shower, keep in mind that swimming pools and hot tubs will shorten life of your airbrush spray tan. Chlorine and hot water strip the product from your skin.
Apply a SPF sunscreen to your skin. Although your skin looks tan, it can still burn.
