Here are your spray tan questions answered!
Why get a spray tan?Because it's safe and MUST better than a tanning bed or the damaging rays of the sun. The active ingredient is DHA (DiHydroxy Acetone), which reacts with the skin’s amino acids to produce a golden tan.
What do I wear?Wear dark, loose fitting cotton clothing 8 hours following your tan while your tan develops. Do not wear tight bra straps, sports bras, or tight shoes and socks while your tan is developing.
What do I do before I tan? Exfoliate very well before you tan. Shave 12 hours before your session. Make sure your skin is free of any lotion, moisturizer, perfume, makeup, and deodorant you want the color to soak in your skin more. Get your manicure, pedicure, and waxing done one day or more prior to appointment.
How long will my spray tan last? On average, your sunless tan will last 7 to 10 days. It also depends on how long you maintain your spray tan. Make sure to use lotion twice daily and wait a minimum of 8 hours to shower after your tan. If you can wait -12 hours is better.
Will I turn orange or streaky?That all depends on where you go and how you take care of your tan. When you take your first shower after your spray tan make sure you gently scrub all of the parts that look streaky or discolored, which can happen while you sleep.
