FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I prepare for my spray tan?
- You're a Goddess, moisturize your skin like one! Stay hydrated.
Exfoliation is key leading up to your spray tan. Exfoliating helps the skin become an even canvas and will help your tan last longer. Remove all leftover tan. Refrain from exfoliating 24 hours prior to your appointment.
Waxing, Shaving, Manicures and Pedicures should be done no later than 24 hours prior to your appointment.
Shower no later than 10 hours prior to your appointment. Showers can leave a soap residue on your skin which can lead to development issues. Please use a gel based soap as opposed to an emollient rich cream based wash.
Deodorants, lotions, body oil and make up should NOT be applied prior to your appointment.
Do not use Dove or Olay pre or post tan
What do I wear?
Please wear long, dark, loose fitted clothing and sandals to your appointment - tight clothes can potentially cause unwanted lines. During your session you may wear as much or as little you are comfortable with. If you choose to leave under garments on please make sure they are dark in color (our solution washes out of most clothes - but it is always better to be safe).
What can I expect during my session?
You should expect to be with us for approximately 20 - 30 minutes. Upon arrival your spray tan artist will help you choose what shade of bronze is best for you. The spray tanning session itself will only take about 15 minutes. After your session you will see an immediate color, however this is just a cosmetic bronzer and has very little to do with your actual tanning results.
What do I do after my session?
CHILL OUT BABE. Once your spray tanning session is complete you will want to refrain from getting wet or sweating until your first rinse. Do not touch your body with the palms of your hands while bronzer layer is still on. Rinse time is based on desired color. If you choose to sleep in your tan prior to showering make sure you sleep in long loose fitted clothing to avoid skin to skin contact. Sleep with the air or fan on to avoid sweating.
When can I shower?
This depends on which solution you choose.
Rinse at desired time - with or without soap, based on solution used. Cold or lukewarm water is best.
Use the palm of your hand to thoroughly glide off all bronzer from body, refrain from using a loofah as they tend to be too abrasive for a new airbrush tan.
Let the shower water run clear for 2 minutes prior to stepping out. You will look light as your tan is not fully developed.
Pat dry, do not rub
Do not moisturize until tan is fully developed
Soap shower may be taken 10 - 12 hours post sunless session. Use a PH balancing body wash or a fragrance free gel based wash.
Moisturize 2 x's a day after first soap shower.
How do I maintain my spray tan?
In order to maintain your airbrush tan be sure to -
Moisturize 2 x's a day after first soap shower. A water based + fragrance free moisturizer is recommended. Coconut oil / Jojoba oil are also great choices
Avoid excessive sweating or soaking in water for long periods of time as this will cause your tan to fade quickly and unevenly
Use SPF - choose a cream as opposed to an Aerosol. Ensure it is oil free and Oxybenzone Free
Do not use Dove + Olay pre or post tan
Can I get an spray tan while pregnant or breastfeeding?

How long will my spray tan last?
