Spray Tan Preparation

  • No lotions, oils, perfumes, body sprays, deodorant, or makeup on your skin prior to your spray tan.

  • Shave and exfoliate the night before or the day of your spray tan. Avoid shaving directly before coming for your spray tan. It's best to shave 12 hours prior to spray tanning.

  • Make sure to get manicures, pedicures, and waxing done 24 hours prior to coming for your spray tan.

  • Wear what makes you comfortable. Some clients will go completely in the nude, others will wear just undergarments or an old swimsuit.

  • Bring or wear loose-fitting clothes for after the spray tan. Tight-fitting clothing can leave imprints in your skin from the inseams. Loose long sleeves and pants are best, along with flip flops.

Spray Tan post-care

  • STAY DRY!! No showering or sweating for a minimum of 12 hours after your spray tan. Your first shower should be a warm water rinse.

  • MOISTURIZING IS KEY! The more hydrated your skin is, the longer your tan will last and you’ll get a nicer, more even fade. Do not apply lotion until after your first shower.

  • Avoid exfoliating during the first five days of your spray tan. Also avoid bar soaps, Dove Body Wash, and any exfoliating washes or scrubs. Cleaner soaps, free of parabens, sulfates, and alcohols are best, and we do offer special soaps specifically designed to maintain the life of your spray tan in studio!

  • Avoid shaving or waxing for at least 24 hours after you spray tan.
