Spray Tan Tips
Taking care of your spray tan after your appointment:
We recommended that you shower 8-12 hours after your appointment if you use our Original Glow formula, and 1-3 hours after your appointment if you use our Express Glow formula. Taking a shower before the suggested time frame may effect the color and results of the spray tan.
We strongly suggest you avoid unnecessary exertion and exposure to water until after your first shower. Sweating or getting the skin wet prior to your first shower may cause discoloration of your tan.
Because there is a bronzer in the spray tan solution, you will see a deepening of your skin tone immediately after you are sprayed. The color will continue to darken as the solution develops and will lighten after you shower off the bronzer. You will see color coming off in your first shower. This is normal. Your spray tan is not washing off, it is just excess bronzer.
We recommend you avoid wearing a sports bra after your spray tan. If you have to put your bra back on after your appointment, we recommend wearing a strapless bra or tucking the bra straps in to prevent any rubbing off of your spray tan.
Keeping your tan
for days to follow:
After you shower, pat your skin dry with a soft towel. Try not to aggressively scrub, exfoliate, or rub your skin as this may effect your color.
Keep your skin moisturized daily and avoid body washes, creams & lotions that have oils or alcohol in them.
Moisturizing helps extend the life of your tan and it helps your tan fade into a more even, natural glow. We recommend using a hydrating, non-scented/fragrance-free & alcohol-free moisturizer.
Heavily scented lotions tend to have a lot of alcohol in them which dries our your skin and can cause early fading. Avoid Bath & Body Works products, Victoria’s Secret lotions, Aveeno products and any anti-aging products. Also avoid anything with retinol or glycol in them as these are exfoliants and will cause your spray to fade quicker.
After time, you are going to notice the color of your tan fading. When this happens, you can start exfoliating your skin in preparation for your next tan.
We carry a line of products that will help prepare your skin for a long-lasting tan along with products to extend your tan’s longevity. We do not recommend using self-tanning sprays and lotions that can be bought at drugstores, as they may have an adverse effect on your tan.”
