Before & After Care
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.
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
Using hot tubs and/ or saunas
Taking long baths and/ or very long showers on a regular basis
