Before & After Care

 

 SPRAY TANNING

The secret to achieving a perfect spray tan glow has everything to do with preparing your skin before your appointment & maintaining the tan after your appointment.

BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT

  • Exfoliate & hydrate your skin several days before your appointment (2-4 times) but not the day of your appointment.

  • Wash & shave at least 3 hours before your appointment – Do not use oil based exfoliating products, gels or waxing/ shaving creams as this can leave a residue on the skin & deny the solution from developing.

  • Do not wear makeup, sunscreen, perfume, deodorant & lotions the day of your appointment.

  • Wear dark-coloured, loose-fitting clothing.

AFTER CARE

DURING THE DEVELOPMENT PERIOD:
(8-12 hours after classic tan, 1-5 hours after rapid tan)

  • Avoid wearing a bra or tight clothing in the hours following your appointment.

  • Avoid contact with water or activities that provoke sweating. If it’s raining or snowing outside, wear long & covering clothing.

  • Do not apply cream or makeup to skin.

  • If the session takes place in the evening, go to bed wearing long clothing.

AFTER DEVELOPMENT PERIOD:

  • Rinse your whole body & face thoroughly to prevent the cosmetic bronzer (temporary layer) from leaking. Rinse until the water is clear. For the first shower, we recommend not using soap.

  • Hydrate your skin every day using a moisturizer or hydrating lotion that is appropriate.

  • Avoid waxing where the solution has been applied. A delicate shave may be done occasionally.

  • Do not exfoliate your skin while the solution is active. (exfoliate once the tan starts to fade to remove the old tan residue)

Activities & habits which may cause the solution to fade away prematurely:

  • Use of creams containing various mineral oils or petroleum

  • Excessive sweating

  • Using hot tubs and/ or saunas

  • Taking long baths and/ or very long showers on a regular basis
