Things to know BEFORE your tan session

  • Exfoliate with a non-oil based gentle exfoliant prior to your tan (including shaving) You want to remove all dead skin cells so your tan looks as even as possible.  Using an exfoliating mitt works perfect for this step!

  • Do not apply lotion or perfume at least 2 hours before your session. 

  • It is recommended that you have any facial or body waxing at least 48 hrs prior to your tan.

  • Pedicures and manicures should be done at least 24 hrs prior to you tanning session.


Things to know AFTER your tan session

  • Wear loose fitting clothes until you wait the full amount of time before your first rinse.  NO yoga pants

  • No sweating, swimming or getting wet until after your first rinse.

  • You will see color right away this is called the bronzer and the solution will continue to develop until you're ready to rinse.  Once you waited the correct amount of time for your solution type you will rinse with warm water in the shower please don't use soap, a loofah or shave for your first rinse. You will see color going down the drain, this is normal! 

  • Throughout the week you can shower as normal just remember the more you shave and exfoliate the faster the tan will fade. Make sure to moisturize  everyday to ensure a long lasting tan. 

  • Stay away from body washes and lotions that have perfume and sulfates.  The alcohol in them will fade your tan. 

  • Pro tip if you're new to spray tanning, sleep in long sleeves to prevent transfer.

What is the difference between the solutions?

Classic solution must be left on for at least 8 hours before rinsing. It can be left on longer if sleeping in it, but not recommended for over 24 hours. 

Express solution  is fast drying​ & allows for a faster rinse time

  • Wait 2 hours to shower = Medium tan 

  •  Wait 3 hours to shower = Dark tan 

  •  Wait 4-5 hours to shower = Deep Dark tan 

 Premium Solution is the best of both worlds, great for clients who want more moisturizing ingredients and bigger range for deep dark tans.

  • Provides deep moisture which keeps skin healthy while extending the life of your tan

  • Delivers nutrients like vitamin A, C and E to nourish your skin from the inside out

  • Stimulates the natural production of collagen for healthier, younger-looking skin

  • Can be used as an express solution OR overnight (classic) solution - during your appointment we will discuss the best option for you.

It is very normal to be darker after 12-24 hrs using this solution because the DHA in this solution is still active.

"When should I book my appointment for an event?"

I always recommend 2-3 days before your event, in most cases doing a trial for any special event especially if this is your first time trying airbrush spray tanning is a must. This is a great way to find out what day you like your tan the best at in order to plan for your event.  You can also decide if would like to go darker or lighter next time.

"Will my spray tan protect me from the sun?"

No, it is very important that you still wear sunscreen. I recommend Sunbum spray  sunscreen. It’s the best!


                                              "What should I wear during my session?"

Wear what you're most comfortable in! A lot of customers like to go topless to prevent tan lines. If you're wearing a bathing suit or bra/underwear remember you WILL have tan lines.


                                                          "How long does it last?"

Everyone is different depending on your skin type and how well your tan is taken care of, but a good average is 

                                                                                                              5-7 days.
