It is important to understand your spray tanning results are greatly impacted by the prep you do at home
Before your spray tan: All other beauty appointments, such as a mani/pedi,waxing, facials, massages, must be done at least 24 hours before your spray tan. The day before your appointment, shower, shave all unwanted hair, and exfoliate your entire body with an exfoliating mitt or abrasive cloth or gloves. Do NOT use DOVE, OLAY, opaque milky looking bath products, or anything with mineral oil, petroleum, or anti-aging ingredients, as they can effect the outcome of your tan. Do not shower or shave right before your appointment, as this interferes with tan development. If it is unavoidable, make it a short cool water rinse only, preferably no less than 4 hours before your spray tan session.
Day of your appointment: be ready with completely clean skin. No makeup, lotions or deodorant, perfume, jewelry.
During your session: Wear what you feel comfortable in (just underwear, underwear and bra, bathing suit) or nothing at all. Men are asked to wear a swimsuit, underwear or shorts.
After your session: Wear dark colored, loose clothes after your spray and chill! Avoid sweating, crying, or any water exposure until advised. No tight socks, shoes, bras, etc.
Timing/Showering: Wash off in 8-10 hours (no more than 24) using only lukewarm water, gently pat skin when toweling off. If you requested a rapid rinse spray tan, your wash off time should be between 2-4 hours, depending on how deep you want your tan. This timing must be exact to achieve your desired result. Please consult with me prior to your spray tan.
Maintenance: Avoid bar soaps, Dove products, and anything with mineral oil, petroleum, or anti-aging ingredients Continue patting skin dry when toweling off. Stay moisturized and hydrated! Hot tubs, pools, salt water and over exfoliation can lighten or remove your tan. I recommend use of a tan extender lotion ($25) to prolong the life of your tan even longer than the usual 7 days, especially if you will be swimming. Available for purchase the same day as your spray session!
Spray tanning is accomplished by application of a solution containing the active ingredient DHA (Dihydroxyacetone). All ingredients used in this procedure are intended for cosmetic use and generally regarded as safe to use as instructed. Please read the ingredients list if you have any concerns over allergies. This product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin to U.V. Light may increase the risk of skin aging, skin cancer and other harmful effects to the skin, even if you do not burn.
