Tips for maintaining your airbrush tan:

First, if you are tanning for a special event, we recommend tanning 1-3 days before your special day.

If you are tanning for a vacation, we suggest scheduling your appointment for the day before you leave to help maximize the length of your tan.

The Night Before ~

Whole body exfoliation is essential for a flawless tan. This can be done with an exfoliating body scrub or mitt/loofah.

Pay special attention to heels, knees, neck and elbows.

Shave 24 hours before your appointment so pores have time to close and dotting of the legs can be avoided. If you are waxing, 48 hours before your appointment is best.

Manicures/Pedicures should be done the day before or at least several hours BEFORE your appointment.

The Day Of ~

If possible, take a quick shower a few hours before your scheduled tan to remove any make-up, deoderant, oils and perfumes from your skin.  Any residue on the body can interfere with the bronzer application. If you do not have time for a shower we do offer pH Balancer Mitts for a small fee you can use at the time of your appointment.

Women may wear a bikini, go topless or in the nude during the tan process. Having something loose and baggy to wear home is imperative. You will not want to put a bra back on after the tan or any tight fitting clothing until AFTER your post tan shower.

After The Tan ~

Depending on which type of tan you chose, you may have to wait anywhere from 1-8 hours to shower. Your technician will advise you on the correct timeline for showering after the tan is applied. During the first shower, you will see the bronzer running off your body. This is NOT THE TAN. Avoid lathering or using any sort of shower gel and exfoliators. We do recommend Glo Soap Bars which is a safe soap bar to use with your post tan showers daily. Gently pat yourself dry, do not rub. Lots of lotion after every shower will help maintain your glow! Hempz is a great lotion we offer in a variety of scents. To keep your tan going the average 7 days, stay away from long, hot showers, hot baths and hot tubs!

When you are ready to tan AGAIN, call, text or message us.
