Before and After Care Plan

Spray Tan - Before and After Care Plan

Spray Tan Appointment Preparation

  • Please shower and exfoliate your entire body extremely well each day for 2-3 days before your tan, focusing on dry areas such as elbows, knees, heels, tops of feet and hands. This removes dead skin cells and leaving only fresh new skin to receive the solution.
  • Any waxing or shaving should be done at least 24 hours prior to tanning.
  • DO NOT wear any deodorants, perfumes, lotions or oils on the same day as your tan as they may act as a barrier when tanning and will prevent even coverage. Deodorants tend to mix with the tanning solution and create unwanted results. Deodorants that contain Aluminium cause extra issues and can cause areas to turn green where deodorant has been sprayed.
  • If wearing underwear during tanning session, it is best to wear dark underwear as they will get the tanning solution on them.
  • Wear loose and dark clothing to your appointment as Tan residue will discolour clothing. Thongs are the footwear of choice for your tanning session.
