CARING FOR YOUR TAN BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER YOUR AIRBRUSH SESSION
THE DAY BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT
Exfoliate the day before your treatment to remove dry flaky skin that causes uneven tanning. Exfoliate lightly on delicate skin such as the face and neck.
Shave within 24 hours prior to sunless treatment. Shaving acts as an exfoliant, doing so after your spray will prematurely fade sunless results.
Any eyebrow or body waxing should be done at least 24 - 48 hours prior to the sunless treatment.
Pedicures should be done prior to spray treatment. Getting one after can cause premature fading.
THE DAY OF YOUR APPOINTMENT
Your skin should be clean, any product on skin will create a barrier.
You should remove all makeup
DO NOT apply lotions or perfumes prior to getting sprayed
WHAT TO WEAR FOR YOUR AIRBRUSH TANNING SESSION
You may tan in the garment of your choice. Bathing suits and underwear work well. Keep in mind whatever you wear for your spray tan is the tan lines you will have after.
Men are required to wear underwear or bathing suit.
The DHA solution should wash out of most clothing except nylon and silk.
WHAT TO WEAR AFTER YOUR AIRBRUSH TANNING SESSION
Wear loose fitting clothing for after session to include flip flops.
Tight clothes can rub off DHA bronzer and smear the cosmetic bronzer.
We recommend loose shorts, and loose fitting t-shirt (DO NOT WEAR JEANS)
AFTER YOUR SPRAY TANNING SESSION
Avoid activities that may cause you to sweat excessively
Use the air conditioning in your car on a hot day.
Important: You must avoid water entirely for at least four hours or you will stop the tanning action of the DHA. This includes washing hands or even letting your dog lick you.
Ideally, wait at least eight to ten hours (or more) before showering or bathing with any kind of soaps or shower gel.
Cleanse gently using a Sulfate-Free body wash. Avoid Dove soap high in PH
If you absolutely must shower before the eight hour period be sure to wait the minimum of four hours. Then, use plain water only to allow your tan to continue to develop.
Moisturize daily. Apply moisturizer after shower (twice daily if possible). This will help prolong your tan.
The 'Instant Color' cosmetic bronzer will wash off just as it is designed to do.
Do not take long hot baths or showers.
Chlorine from a pool or Jacuzzi can cause your tan to fade faster.
