We recommend that you do not tan after 8pm because the tan can stain your hands while sleeping. If a tan is done after 8pm or late at night, please wear cloth gloves while you are sleeping that night
Step 1 (The day before your tan)– Shave all areas that you normally shave. DO NOT shave the day of the tan to prevent minor spotting- Exfoliate with a washcloth or one of our recommended skin products (this is not mandatory but will help)
Step 2 (The same day you receive your tan)– DO NOT use any body lotion, body cream, make up or perfume the day you will be tanning- DO NOT shave the day of the tan to prevent minor spotting- DO NOT wax any areas of your body including your face the day the day of your tan- DO NOT put on any under arm deodorant (powders or lotions)- Wear dark, loose fitting clothing (NO tight fitting clothing, socks, or tight fitting shoe apparel)- Cotton clothing is optimal (tanning bronzer stains will wash out of most cotton clothing)- Please bring a bathing suite or underwear or other suitable tanning attire
– Once your tan is applied, allow it to dry completely (we will ensure that your application is dry) – We recommend that you wear dark, loose fitting clothing after your appointment – Any minor rub-off will easily wash out of most fabrics- Do not wet your skin for at least 6 to 8 hours after the tanning session. – No shower or bath for at least 6 to 8hours (it is best to wait until the next morning- Your tan will last longer if you DO NOT bath or shower the same day of your tan – We also recommend that you do not exercise or perspire excessively until the next day after your tan – Avoid touching or rubbing any tanned areas- All tanning colors will wash out of clothing and bedding- When you do shower or bath DO NOT scrub your body with a wash cloth (Use hand and soap only)- When showering or bathing DO NOT be concerned if some of the initial bronzer wash off – This is part of the spray on tanning process, and your skin will continue to tan. – DO NOT exfoliate the skin for 7 days after tanning- Daily use of our recommended Body Lotion (Tan Extender) is recommended to extend the results- Your tan will naturally fader over a period of days (each tan should last about 7 to 10 days)- The tanning solution does NOT contain sunscreen and will not protect you from the sun’s UV rays.
