4 things to know before spray tan

1. How to Prepare For a Spray Tan? Start With a Clean Canvas.

One of the secrets to a flawless tan is to remove any unwanted hair prior to your appointment so the tan has no trouble adhering to your skin.

2. Before You Tan Be Sure to Exfoliate. We Recommend You Use a Gentle Exfoliator.

This ties into the tip above. Exfoliating before will get rid of any dead skin cells or rough, dry patches so your spray tan results are as smooth as can be. This also ensures your tan will last longer.

3. Wondering What to Wear to Your First Spray Tan? We Recommend You Wear Dark, Loose-fitting Clothing.

Immediately following your spray tan session, there is a chance that the solution could rub off on clothing. To avoid this as much as possible, we recommend wearing loose clothing that you wouldn’t mind dirtying up a bit (in other words, don’t wear your favorite date night dress to the appointment!). The solution will wash off everything but white spandex but we don’t want any lines or marks left into the skin from clothing that is too tight.

4. Bare Skin to Start Ensures the Best Application. So Remember: No Lotion, No Makeup, Just Clean Bare Skin.

Lotions and makeup can act as a barrier to the tanning solution. For best results, we suggest showing up to your appointment as bare as possible!
