Spray Tan Preparation

  • Exfoliate and shave 24-48 hours before your appointment. Do not shave the day of your appointment. It is important to exfoliate and shave in advance of your appointment to remove all dead skin cells and help ensure a flawless tan.

  • DO NOT use dove soap before of after you spray tan. Dove soap contains a high PH that can alter the life & color of your tan.

  • Nails should be done the day before your appointment. Waxing must be done 1-2 days before your appointment.

  • When arriving to your appointment, you want to be a clean slate. Therefore, no make-up, perfume, or lotions (use deodorant sparingly).

  • Wear loose, dark clothing to prevent the bronzer from rubbing off against your skin or your clothes.

  • If you are sunburned and/or have peeling skin, please reschedule your appointment. We recommend waiting until your skin is completely healed.

Spray Tan Post-Care

  • Until you rinse, go home, relax, and remove your shoes. You don't want to wear constricting clothing, sweat, or get went until you've removed the cosmetic bronzer. Your first rinse will be 8+hrs after your spray for Signature Bronze tans, or 3-5+hrs for Rapid Bronze tans.

  • Rinse in lukewarm water until water runs clear. Do not shave, exfoliate, shampoo, or use any body wash or soaps as this will strip the DHA and create streaks in your tan.

  • After you rinse, make sure you pat dry. DO NOT rub. In order to maintain your tan, be sure to moisturize 2-3 times a day and stay well hydrated. We also sell products in-store that can help you prolong the life of your tan!

  • After your first rinse you can return to your normal shower routine. Remember, natural soaps and lotions will result in longer tan life. Our favorite products to maintain a vibrant, long-lasting tan are available in-studio
