Exfoliate your skin:
No less than 12 hours before your spray tanning session, exfoliate your entire body to remove dead skin cells and create a smooth canvas for the tanning solution. Focus on areas prone to dryness, such as elbows, knees, ankles, and heels. Use a gentle exfoliating scrub or mitt, avoiding oil-based products that can create a barrier on your skin.
Shave or wax:
If needed, shave or wax at least 24 hours before your spray tanning appointment. This allows time for your skin to recover and pores to close, preventing any potential irritation from the tanning solution or from the tanning solution to settle in pores.
Avoid moisturizers, oils, and lotions:
On the day of your spray tanning session, avoid applying any moisturizers, oils, or lotions to your skin before the appointment. These products can create a barrier and interfere with the absorption of the tanning solution.
Remove makeup, deodorant, and perfume:
Ensure that your skin is free of any makeup, deodorant, perfume, or other cosmetic products before your spray tan. These products can affect the development and adherence of the tanning solution.
Wear loose-fitting, dark-colored clothing:
Choose loose-fitting clothing to wear to your spray tanning appointment. Tight or restrictive clothing can rub against the tanned areas and potentially cause uneven fading. Opt for dark-colored clothing to minimize the visibility of any potential color transfer.
Bring or wear appropriate undergarments:
Depending on your comfort level, you may choose to wear underwear, a swimsuit, or go nude during your spray tanning session. If you prefer to wear undergarments, bring or wear a dark-colored set that you don’t mind getting tanned. Disposable undergarments are available upon request.
Plan for post-tanning arrangements:
After your spray tanning session, it’s important to avoid water contact or activities that may cause excessive sweating for the recommended development time. Plan your schedule accordingly and avoid activities such as exercising, swimming, washing dishes or showering until the recommended time has passed.
Remember to consult with your spray tanning technician for any specific instructions or recommendations they may have based on your skin type and the tanning solution being used. Following these preparation instructions will help ensure a smooth and flawless spray tan result. Enjoy your spray tanning experience and embrace your beautiful bronzed glow!
