Shaving or waxing - It is best to shave or wax at least 12 hours before your tanning appointment.
Waxing during the life of your tan will remove it - therefore we recommend that you do not wax for at least 7 days after the application.
COME PREPARED! - THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! YOU MUST WEAR LOOSE DARK CLOTHING TO LEAVE IN.
Shorts & button up short sleeve shirts are ideal. Flip flops for the feet are a help.
The least amount of contact with clothing after your tan the better.
If it is raining on the day of your tan bring the biggest brolly ever!! Water getting on to your skin straight after a tan is a big no-no!
Cremes and lotions - Do not apply moisturisers or use any roll-on deodorants until after your post-tanning shower (see below), lotions can act as a barrier and prevent the tan from contacting with the skin. The same applies to your face and the wearing of make-up.
Developing - Whilst drying please do not allow palms of hands to touch tanned areas as the colour will transfer. We do not spray palms of hands therefore if this occurs we cannot take responsibility. The Airbrush tan requires a minimum of 5hrs to develop. We like to say leave it 8hrs before your next shower. Please avoid all bathing, showering and any exercise that may cause excessive perspiration for 5 hours or more. Please note this also includes placing your hands in water to wash up etc, as this will cause discolouration.
When Is the best time to get a Spray Tan - We would advise not having a spray the same day as you are going out. The tan takes time to develop. The best time to have a spray tan would be the day before your event.
Aftercare - When your first shower after the application you will be aware of the slight brown residue in the water. This is the colour guide washing away. Use a non-oil based product for cleansing. DO NOT over rub the skin - pat dry with soft towel. Moisturise thoroughly every day with a non-oil based product.
