1 Day before you tan, based on your sensitivity: plan all hair removal services 24-48 hours before spray tanning. This will minimize possible irritation, and allow open hair follicles/pores to close. This will minimize a dotted tan appearance. We recommend waxing and laser services always be done 48 hours in advance.
Night before you tan, or day of: Skin should be clean, dry and well exfoliated before your spray tanning application. Please use a clear/transparent GEL soap (brand does not matter, but do avoid DOVE or opaque milky looking products - no bar soap please) Please remove all cosmetics, scrubs, lotions, soaps, hair conditioners, shampoos, hair removal product or shave product residues from the skin. These can coat the skin and effect tan application.
If the skin has been waxed, remove all wax residue. Please use an exfoliation mitt, cloth or glove on all body surfaces, including arm pits, chest, back, focus on dry areas such as knees, elbows, hands and feet.
Tanning Day: Showering is recommended to remove sweat, skin oils, cosmetics, anti-persperants, lotions and perfumes from the skin. Skin should be clean, dry, sweat and product free for the best tanning absorption, and even results. Wear a tight dark garment, that you do not mind getting tanning solution on for your spray session. Keep in mind, Nylon, Lycra, Spandex, Silk and Wool may all stain from self-tanning products. Please advise your tech of any known allergies, health concerns or if you are pregnant or breast feeding.
