prep & care instructions

Prior to your session:

The week of your sunless appointment, 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 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 or deep cut, I will NOT spray tan you in that area! Avoid spraying  the face 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 or perfume the day of your appointment. The last shower prior to your session should be no less than 6 hours.  This will allow your natural oils and ph levels to restore and balance.

Deodorant can cause a greenish hue but will go away when you rinse off. If you can avoid applying it that day, please do so.

* 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.

IMPORTANT! Please read the entirety of this page!
For your appointment:
  • Please be ready for your 20 minute appointment...

  • Have clean skin and preferably free of makeup and deodorant.

  • Please do not bring jewelry or have it removed for your session.

  • Wear dark and loose fitting clothing and sandals. NO WORKOUT clothes or thin straps as they remove the solution off your skin.

  • For the application process, you may wear your undergarments, bring pasties or opt for no tan lines.

       (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.

After Care:

  • 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, loofah, or apply lotion after your FIRST rinse.​, wait at least 12 hours to ensure the full development of the tan.

  • * Medication, stress or being pregnant/nursing may alter your ph balance and affect the way your spray tan develops in some cases.

*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.

For Longevity:

  • Pat dry with a towel after each shower.

  • Avoid hot, long baths / showers, exfoliating and heavy workouts.

  • 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!

  • Waterproof sunblock is your bff!

  • Don't spray perfume directly to your skin, spray the air and walk into it.
