Proper care for your spray tan:
Shower/wax/shave – Any waxing and shaving should be done at least 24 hours beforehand. Shower the day of, but not immediately before, your session as you won’t be able to shower again for up to eight hours after your session. A warm water rinse shower is ideal. Don’t use any bar soap or other high pH products or moisturizers as these can neutralize the bronzing ingredients and can result in an uneven tan.
Do not wear deodorant, perfume or makeup to your session to ensure your skin is the perfect canvas. Avoid any lotions or oils and anything else that can act as a barrier between your skin and the spray tanning solution.
Manicures/pedicures/waxing/facials/Botox/massages should be done at least the day before your session. The oils used in these appointments can leave a barrier between your skin that we are trying to avoid.
Exfoliate – Do a full body scrub to fully exfoliate and thoroughly prepare your skin the day before your tan with a non-oil-based exfoliator. Spend extra time on knees/ankles/elbows/etc.
Bring the right kind of clothes! Loose fitting dark clothing will prevent your clothes from giving you an uneven tan and prevent your tan from getting on your clothes. Wear flip flops. Spray tan solutions can easily be washed off clothes (and bedsheets) but wearing the wrong kind of clothes after your spray tan can be unsightly or ruin your tan. Sweatpants, pajamas, robes and loose t-shirts with flip flops are best. No bras or tight clothing.
Have an umbrella if you’re going out. A great thing about a mobile spray tanning service is you can’t get rained on and ruin your tan right after your session on the way home! But if you’re planning to leave your home after a spray tan when it could rain, keep an umbrella handy.
Leave the solution on for 8-12 hours to allow it to fully develop before rinsing. Remove all initial bronzer with warm water and your hands only until the water rinses away clear. Don’t use a loofah, wash cloth or sponge. Don’t use any products on your skin for 24 hours after your tan and avoid oil-based and alcohol-based products for the entirety of the time.
Keep your skin hydrated and moisturized daily starting the day after your spray tan to maintain the life of your tan.
Sweat will affect the quality and duration of your spray tan. Avoid working out at least four hours after your appointment and until the next day if you can help it.
