EXFOLIATE your skin 24 hours before your scheduled spray tan with mitts/washcloth, or any type of oil free scrub. Exfoliating the skin is VERY important in order for your tan to last longer. If you don’t exfoliate properly, your tan will not last as long. Shave or wax 24 hours before your tan appointment.

•On the day of your appointment, please wash your skin with a non-oil based cleanser. For best results, shower 6 hours before the Spray Tan.

•Don't apply any perfume, lotion, deodorant, shaving creams, or oils on the day of your appointment as they will interfere with the results.

•Wear dark loose fitting clothes, flip flops, and NO jewelry or bra. The tanning solution washes out of most clothing, but the cosmetic bronzer may discolor lighter colored clothes. We recommend a button-down shirt and loose sweatpants.


AFTER TAN (Shower in 8-24hours)

•Avoid activities with water (e.g. washing dishes, swimming) until your first shower- if you spill anything on your tan pat the area dry, don’t rub.

•Use a fragrance free/sensitive skin body wash (with no oils) so your tan will last, perfumes and oils will strip your tan. Wait at least 8 hours before you shower (unless you use our Express solution) overnight-24 hours for best results, and always pat dry the skin after a shower to help your tan last it’s longest (When taking the first shower, you will see cosmetic BRONZER washing off the skin, don't worry, your perfect tan has developed underneath). Please make sure to wash ALL bronzer off during first shower- just use fragrance free soap and water (DON'T SCRUB!)

•Shaving exfoliates your tan, so if you must shave, use a brand new razor.

•Stay away from Dove body washes and lotions as well as any others that contain mineral oil or oils.

•Do not exercise after being spray tanned, wait until the first shower, then proceed back to regular exercise schedule.

•Moisturize your skin at least once a day, if you have dry skin, twice a day or more is recommended. Use a fragrance free/sensitive skin lotion. Don’t moisturize until after your first shower as it might cause streaking.

•Avoid long hot baths, showers, hot tubs, and try not to shave as frequently, as it speeds up exfoliation and will reduce the length of your tan.


Follow the instructions above but you will do a warm water RINSE only, do not scrub or use soap. When the water runs clear, get out of the shower and make sure you pat dry. Wait 12-24 hours to take a real shower and then you can apply lotion.
