Shaving the day before is ideal or 24 hours after your tan is ok. If you have to shave the same day as your appointment please do not use any shaving gels or creams.
Clean & product-free skin is a must. Please come to your appointment with NO lotions on. Once you have had your last shower before your appointment do not apply any lotions or oils we need a product-free canvas.
You may spray tan in the undergarment of your choice.
(Most women go with just pants or nothing).
For going home we recommend loose trousers and loose a T-shirt. Please try to avoid sleeveless. Please keep the weather in mind in, case it rains you will need to dress accordingly. No leggings or trainers please, flip-flops are ideal footwear.
If you have pedicures or waxing booked please do them at least 24 hours before.
For the first night only if you have not done your first rinse off we recommend sleeping in pyjamas, this will avoid skin-on-skin contact while its still developing.
Our spray tans require anything from 2- 6 hours of development time depending on what tan you have. We ask that you be prepared to not shower for a minimum of 24 hours after. Please do not use any products or shower gel on the skin. (Water only)
As soon as you have taken off the bronzing layer in your first shower you are set in. Moisturize daily as much as you want. The more the better. If you are going somewhere with a pool, an extender is recommended. Please ask, as these are available to purchase.
While you have a spray tan please avoid body scrubs, loofahs, Dove products & bar soap. These can inhibit how your tan lasts. Please speak to us about home care.
A spray tan is 50% our application & 50% your prep & aftercare we guarantee all tans if the proper prep is followed. You must contact us within 24 hours of your service if you have an issue. We can not guarantee our spray tan services if you come in with self tanner on your skin.
How many days before an event should I get a spray tan?
We recommend 1-3 days before an event. For brides, we do recommend 2-3 days before.
How long does a spray tan last?
The spray tan lasts approximately 7 days.
What happens the day of my spray tan?
Once sprayed, you will have an instant bronzed look produced by the bronzer in the solution the tan will develop over the next 8- 24 hours
Will a spray tan protect me from a sunburn?
No! When going into the sun, you must wear sun protection. The only way it will help to protect you is that you will not be tempted to sunbake since you will have your tan already.
How dark will I get?
Everybody’s skin develops its color based on their current skin tone. Some people go a few shades darker brown, some may just get a glow. We have multiple solutions to choose from. We will also do a consultation with you when you come in to match your desired result.
I had a bad experience with a spray tan before. Should I assume that spray tanning is not for me?
No, many factors could effect your tan; the skill of the technician (if tanned with handheld gun), the quality of solution, your skin condition at the time, or simply just like everyone not being able to wear the same brand of makeup you may just need a different product line on your skin.
Does the solution have a bad smell?
No! The multiple product lines we use have the newest technology in odor inhibitors that eliminates the dreaded "sunless smell".
What is the difference between an airbrush spray tan and a booth?
Airbrush technicians control the amount of solution on the hands, feet and other areas that need to appear more natural, especially in the winter we change up our routine to adjust for dry skin. Also, the breathing factor is much better. You can breath normal and not worry about the solution being sprayed out all over the place. A booth just sprays out & you hope that you are standing in the correct position.
Will a spray tan come off in the pool?
The best thing to help your tan last longer when going in pools or hot tubs is wearing waterproof sunblock. It helps protect your skin from the chemicals. You will not physically see your spray tan coming off in the pool or ocean. Buying a tan extender product is worth it for holidays or for simply extending the life of your spray tan.
Does the solution come off on clothing?
The day you get your spray tan the odd time people see a bit of spray come off on your clothes inside. The solutions are water soluble and will come off in the wash and should not stain. Once you have your first shower you are washing off the bronzer and you should not see any spray tan products coming off on your clothing. If you do still see a bit coming off after your first shower that means you haven't rinsed the bronzer off well enough or on rare occasions the skin PH balance can be off.
Can you cover up tan lines?
Spray tans can cover up tan lines up to 70-80%, The result will be dependent on the width and shade difference between the tan line and your natural skin tone.
Can I get a spray tan well pregnant?
DHA doesn't penetrate the skin or enter the bloodstream. As your body goes through a lot of change during pregnancy we would recommend a trial before a special occasion to ensure that the tan adheres to your skin with the hormone changes. If you are having a high-risk pregnancy please consult a physician first.
