Things to know BEFORE your tan session
Exfoliate with a non-oil based gentle exfoliant prior to your tan (includes 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! It's just the bronzer sitting on top of your skin the rest has already soaked into your skin.
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 lotion your body everyday to ensure your tan lasts the maximum amount of time.
Try and stay away from body washes and lotions that have perfume and sulfates. The alcohol in them will fade your tan.
Durning the processing time if you plan on sleeping in your tan I recommend sleeping in long sleeves and although this step isn't necessary if you want to be extra safe try covering your hands with socks while you sleep. This will prevent the tan from transferring to your hands making them extra dark.

I'm very pale, I'm afraid it won't look natural and I'll be orange.
No orange here!! Our mission at Brookesidetss is to revolutionize the tanning experience. We are dedicated to educating our clients on the harmful effects that come along with many of the other popular tanning choices as well offering a safe alternative in the comfort of our clients homes.

I have a special event to go to what do you recommend?
We recommend doing a trial for any special event especially if this is your first time trying airbrush spray tanning. 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. The solution washes out of clothing and bedding.
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
