Before the Appointment
Plan your other beauty services:
Schedule your mani/pedi appointment at least 1 day before or 1 day after your appointment. If you are scheduling it after, you will have to skip any exfoliating scrub on your hands/feet.
Schedule your wax appointment at least 1 day before.
Wash and Condition your hair the day before. ( Shampoo/Conditioner leaves a residue on the skin that prevents the spray tan from developing )
Plan to be without a Bra for at least 8 hours after your appointment. If you must wear a bra, we suggest wearing a strapless one!
Prepare a bag to bring with you. Bring loose dark clothing and flip flops to change into after your appointment.
In the Shower
We suggest using Cetaphil soap ( Avoid Dove Soap! ) and a pair of exfoliating hand gloves.
Avoid using any oil based scrubs
Shave in the shower if you don’t wax
Exfoliate your face, neck and chest ( These are the areas that we tend to forget the most! )
After showering, Do not apply Lotion or Deodorant.
Do not apply any makeup.
If you are coming straight from work, you can put deodorant on after your shower, just let us know so we can give you a baby wipe to remove it! But definitely don’t wear lotion!
During the Appointment
What to wear?
During your tan you can wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Most women go nude or wear panties. We have disposable panties if you prefer to wear those! Or Some women wear full bathing suits, or bikini’s. We want you to be 100% comfortable! .
Men, you have to wear briefs or boxers.
Depending on the type of blend we selected, you will have to shower either in 2-5 hours or 8-10 hours.
Whichever blend you have received, during the developing time, be sure to avoid sweating or touching water.
Don’t apply any lotion or foundation ( eye makeup is totally fine! )
Don’t wear any tight fitted clothing
Avoid touching your skin. Your palms will pick up the tan that is on your skin and tan the inside of your palms. Be very carefully with touching your skin until your first shower.
Moisturize at least 2 times a day and immediately after every shower. Do not use Aveeno, Bath & Body Works lotion, Victoria Secret lotion, etc.
Use a hydrating moisturizer like Hempz Lotion, Cetaphil, Kiehls.
Short warm showers ( avoid hot showers )
Do not use dove soap. Use a gentle soap like Cetaphil
Do not use a washcloth or loofa until you are ready to remove your tan.
