 Pre-Tanning Advice

  • Shave or wax at least 24 hours prior to treatment

Aftercare Advice

Immediately after tanning treatment:

  • Do not touch the skin, even to feel if dry
  • Ensure the solution is dry before you put your clothes back on
  • Wear loose dark clothing (preferably no bra and open toed shoes)
  • Avoid contact with water
  • Avoid any heat that could cause excessive sweating
  • Avoid exercise for 6-8 ours
  • Avoid chlorine and excessive bathing
  • Allow 6-8 hours before bathing – unless Quickening used
  • It is better to shower and to stand under a shower and allow water to run clear before washing

How to Maintain Your Spray Tan

​Spray tans can last from 4 – 10 days if cared for correctly. To maintain your tan, make sure that you moisturize and use CORRECT products. Using the wrong products can cause your tan to fade quicker than normal.

The following is a list of body care products that could potentially have a fading or blotchy effect on your spray tan. This is only a guide and not every client will have an issue with these items or products:

AHA products

Anti-acne products that exfoliate or dry the skin

Anti-aging products that exfoliate skin

Bar soaps

BHA products

Retin-A products

Body Hair Bleach Products

Toners containing Alcohols or Witch Hazel can lighten tan

Facial masks & exfoliating scrubs

Body spray, perfumes, and bug spray when they are sprayed directly on skin. We recommend that you

spray your clothing or spray into the air then walk through.

Hair inhibiting Lotions can cause your tan to yellow

Exercising often or large amount of sweating can cause your tan to fade faster, especially in body fold areas.

Makeup remover cleaning products or oils

Submersion in hot tub or swimming pool and sometimes even habitual long hot baths.

Using a loofah, mitt, scrub etc. for daily washing
