Shower, exfoliate with an oil free scrub, and shave 12-24 hours before your appointment. If you must use a scrub that has oil, be sure to shower again directly after to remove. You may moisturize your skin the night before if you are very dry. If you are EXTREMELY dry, you may apply body lotion in the morning if you have an appointment later that day.
Showering the night before is preferred. Do not shower directly before! This will affect your tan development. You need at least a 6 hour window of showering before your appointment time. Showering too soon before will affect your pH level of your skin, and that may result in a golden or brassy result.
Do not use soap that contains essential oils, as that may act as a barrier to your skin. NO DOVE PRODUCTS.
Make sure to finish washing / conditioning your hair prior to exfoliation, to avoid any residue.
If you wax large areas such as legs, have your appointment a minimum of 24 hours prior. Brazilian may be done sooner, and we have a combination tan and wax service entirely for this option.
Schedule your Mani / Pedi prior to your tan, not after.
No fragrance or deodorant, prior to your appointment. No makeup if we are spraying your face. We do have makeup wipes available and baby wipes for deodorant removal.
Your clothing should be loose fitting and darkly colored, please avoid tight clothing as that can rub against the bronzer. Wear loose fitting clothes, because tight clothes (such as jeans) will rub against the fresh spray tan, causing it to rub off your skin.
Flip flops recommended as foot wear, unless it is raining outside.
In the event of rain, bring an umbrella, closed toe shoes and a jacket. Wear loose PANTS. Do not wear shorts or a dress. You may get raindrops on your tan if you are not covered up.
