1. HOW DO I BEST PREP MY SKIN FOR TANNING?
EXFOLIATE your skin, especially dry areas (hands, feet, elbows, bra strap area, underarms where deodorant will have dried out the skin). It's very important to make sure you DON'T USE an oil based exfoliator.
2. WHEN CAN I SHOWER AFTER MY TAN?
If you tan very easily in the sun & with fake tan - 6-8 hours
If you have fair skin & burn easily in the sun - 12+ hours
PAT DRY with your towel, do not rub the skin.
3. WHAT SHOULD I WEAR AFTER MY TAN?
A long sleeve cotton top (round neck), and long cotton leggings are best. Immediately afterward & in bed.
Nothing too loose that allows the skin to touch underneath the fabric, ie. inside elbows & behind knees. also nothing with straps, tight waistbands and seams which are super tight or rub your skin.
4. WHEN IS BEST TO SCHEDULE WAXING, NAIL AND BROW APPOINTMENTS AROUND MY SPRAY TAN?
Waxing - at least 2 days before tan
Nails - Anytime until right before the tan. Ideally not after the spray tan as the acetone will wipe off the tan around your fingers.
Brows - 1-2 days before. If getting them tinted be sure to do the day after the tan. Or if you have them done before, we can apply some barrier cream to the brows. Please let me know if this is the case.
Shaving - do this 24hrs before (no closer to the tan, as it can cause streaks), or wait until day of event and shave lightly over skin.
