Before & After Your Spray Tan

Before The Spray Tan Session

  • Exfoliate – prep the skin by removing dead skin and creating a smooth surface for even tanning results. Spend a little extra time on dry areas such as knees, elbows, feet and hands.
  • Never use a loofah or anything hard or oily on skin
  • Shave – within 24 hours prior to sunless application
  • Avoid Moisturizing – with lotion, especially those with a high amount of silicone, at least two hours prior to sunless tanning as lotions can create a barrier.
  • For best results use products specifically formulated for sunless prep and post treatment sold only in salons.
  • Always watch the instruction video provided at the salon.

After The Spray Session

  • Wear dark, loose fitting clothes to and from the sunless tanning session. Do not wear wool, nylon or silk immediately after a sunless session
  • Wait at least 6 – 12 hours before showering. The longer you wait, the better.
  • Don’t worry if color is seen washing off the skin during the first shower, this is only the immediate cosmetic bronzer. What is left behind is a beautiful sunless tan!
  • Do not moisturize, swim, or exercise until after the first shower.
  • Do not exfoliate for at least 48 hours after a sunless tanning application
  • Moisturize daily with a tan extender, starting after the first shower, to help maintain a longer – lasting tan.
  • If the color starts to fade unevenly or if the sunless tan needs a color boost – apply a self tanner!
