Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Spray Tan?
Once a spray tan is applied, the sunless solution develops color on the outer layers of the skin and lasts until these layers slough off within the natural cell renewal process.
What should I wear to and during my Treatment?
Ladies, you are welcome to wear as little or as much as you are comfortable wearing- Just keep unwanted tan lines in mind! For post treatment, the looser clothes the better. This is very important during the first hour post tan! Dark, loose clothing will allow your newly bronzed skin to breathe, which will aid in the drying process.
Do you customize the solution?
Yes, we customize the regular solution. We take several factors into consideration- Your skin type, hair color, eye color, existing base tan, and most importantly what shade of tan you desire. We will educate you on our products, and what type of realistic expectations you should have in mind.
How do I prep my skin for a Spray Tan?
Proper exfoliation and cleansing the skin free of any makeup, perfumes, deodorants, or lotions before a Spray Tan is applied ensures not only the removal of dead skin cells, but it also preps your skin for the best possible results. Performing these necessary steps prior to receiving your tan can aid in the longevity.
How soon can I shower after I get sprayed?
We recommend that you should avoid moisture (i.e. sweating, showering, swimming, or doing the dishes) for at least 8-10 hours after your session. Early exposure to moisture will stop the DHA development process.
What should I do immediately after I receive a Spray Tan?
You must refrain from water, or any activities that may cause perspiration 12 hours from your appointment. Just remember=Water is the enemy!
A single drop of water will effect the overall results of the tan. I highly recommend refraining from going anywhere else aside from home after you receive your tan. The application of a moisturizer (post shower) the morning after a spray and can also extend the life of your tan. The strength of the spray tan formula is also a factor when it comes to fading. If the underlying color of your natural skin allows you to receive a stronger, darker formula this can definitely produce a long lasting results.
Is it safe to get an Spray Tan while pregnant?
In general it is best to seek your physician's advice before proceeding with a Spray Tan while pregnant. There are no significant health risks known from the use of DHA, the tanning agent in Spray Tans. Still, why not proceed with an abundance of caution during this special time? May we suggest that you pursue a minimal cosmetic regimen during your pregnancy. We'll be glad to welcome you back as a customer with a healthy baby in tow!
Can I swin or go in hot tubs with my spray tan?
If you plan on participating in water related activities, you will not get the longevity out of your tan. AVOID hot tubs at all costs, unless you want to completely remove your tan. Make sure you opt for a good waterproof sunscreen, and a good water based post sun moisturizer. It will help create a good moisture barrier between the water and your skin. HINT: We like sport spray sunscreens because of their lack of mineral oil and petroleum which will prematurely fade your lovely sunless tan.
