prep & care instructions
Prior to your session:
In the days leading up to your appointment, it's very important that you begin prepping your skin to experience a flawless application, a long lasting glow, and an even fade. Start by keeping skin well hydrated; drink plenty of water and moisturize at least twice daily using natural products. Anything organic and natural based with goats milk + coconut oil is always best. Make sure you're avoiding products with sulfates, parabens, alcohol, fragrance and mineral oil (i.g. Dove, Aveeno, Jergens, etc.)
I can not recommend anything specific but do have retail available for your convenience at the studio.
* Note: if you have a sunburn, I will NOT spray tan you in that area! Also, do not come in if you had a chemical peel within two weeks or are currently using retinol.
12-24 hours prior:
Exfoliate + shave at least 24 hours prior. Do not apply lotion deodorant or perfume the day of your appointment. This will allow your natural oils and ph levels to restore and balance. The last shower prior to your session should be no less than 6 hours.
* ALL other beauty appointments such as nails, waxing, lashes, hair, etc. should be done at least 24+ hours prior!
** Spray tan appointment should be 1-3 days prior to your main event.
For your appointment:
Please be ready for your 15 minute appointment...
Be clean of any product, makeup, deodorant and remove your jewelry.
Wear dark and loose fitting clothing and shoes. NO WORKOUT clothes! Also avoid tops with thin straps.
You may wear your undergarments, bring pasties or opt for no tan lines for the application process.
(Men are required to wear bottoms).
Plan on rinsing off within 2-4 hours after application. You may request an 8+ hour solution.
While you're developing, avoid sweating or coming into contact with water, little ones or furry ones.
Bring a towel for your car to sit on and be careful with the seatbelt.
Rinse off with lukewarm water for 3-5 minutes and gently rub the bronzer off your body with your hands in circular motions.
(If you are streaky afterwards, it means you left bronzer on!
Don't worry, it'll even out by your next shower).
You may notice that all of the bronzer washed off and you have little to no tan lines. This is normal as the spray tan will continue to gradually develop over the next 8+ hours. Trust the process!
Do not use any products or loofah, or apply lotion after your rinse.
NOTE: Medication + hormones may affect the development or longevity of your spray tan.
*If you see a greenish tint to your underarm area, it's deodorant residue and will clear out by your next rinse. I recommend using a natural based deodorant.
** Speckly hands after rinse has been common too, they will even out soon, just buff and blend them with a soft towel.
Pat dry with a towel after each shower.
Avoid hot, long baths / showers or exfoliating.
Skip shaving days and use a razor with a small moisturizing strip.
Apply body moisturizer 1-2 times a day.
Stay hydrated... drink your H2O!
Use waterproof sunblock.
