SPRAY TAN FAQ

 

WHY?

Because tanning beds and too much exposure to the sun causes skin cancer! The evidence is out there. This is a safer and better alternative.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

About 7 to 10 days. You can keep your tan longer by AVOIDING long hot showers, Mineral Oil based lotions, excessive exfoliation, swimming in Chlorine bleach pools and, the beach (salt water acts as an exfoliant). Also people who work out a lot and shower more often will not keep their tans as LONG as most.

HOW CAN I MAKE MY TAN LAST LONGER?

Get a DHA based lotion/extender lotion. Any lotion with DHA in it, when used about every other day, will help keep your tan longer. You should always wash your hands after applying the lotion. DHA will color the hands. Exfoliate gently and evenly (evenly is key) you never want to AVOID exfoliation but yes do it lightly. Avoiding it will cause patchiness.

WILL IT PROTECT MY SKIN IF I GO OUTSIDE?

NO NO AND NO.  You will still need to use SPF when out in the sun. A lot of people think you are brown so you are protected but that is NOT the case.

WILL IT STAIN MY SHEETS/CLOTHING?

No, but bronzer will transfer onto your sheets and clothing generally the first day so wear something dark and always loose fitting. If you are concerned about your bed either change your sheets or put down a towel.

DO I NEED TO SHOWER AND EXFOLIATE BEFORE I GET A SPRAY TAN?

Yes, shower and exfoliate the day of and either go without lotion or use a water-based moisturizer. Good example Aveeno. Also stay away from Dove soap as it contains Lanolin which can block your tan from developing to its fullest.

WHEN SHOULD I SHAVE OR WAX?

Shave the day before using soap and water. Do not use shaving cream as again, it contains Lanolin. Also if you need to wax please try to wax about 1 to 2 days before your spray to avoid the spray from getting into your pores, which are freshly open.

DO YOU OFFER AN EXPRESS CUSTOM AIRBRUSH TAN?

Yes, I do. You can rinse after 3 hours. Great for people who don’t want to sleep in their airbrush tan or are in a hurry!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO MY APPOINTMENT?

Loose fitting, black clothing. Coming from work for your spray tan? Bring loose-fitting clothing to wear afterward.
