Before & After a Tan


24 Hours Prior to Your Spray Tan

  • Shave or use depilatory cream to remove unwanted body hair.

  • Exfoliate entire body with mild, oil-free exfoliant.

  • Pack your spray tanning bag: hair tie, lip balm, black swimsuit or underwear (cotton) Swim Suit top should be strapless, 

    dark loose fitting clothing (cotton), black flip flops, an umbrella (in case of bad weather), and a large black towel to place over your car seat to avoid staining.

    8 Hours Prior to Your Spray Tan

  • Shower, but do not apply body oils or moisturizers to skin (unless you have very dry skin) as this can create a barrier on your skin.

  • Wear clothing to and from your spray tanning appointment that is dark in color (preferably black), loose fitting, and cotton to avoid excess contact or staining to your clothing after your spray tan.

  • Do not wear tight fitting jeans, pants, or shorts, or light synthetic fabrics to your appointment. Try a loose black dress, or lounge-type clothing.

  • It is advisable to wear dark flip flops to and from your spray tan appointment.

  • Plan your day so that you can arrive at your spray tanning appointment at least 10-15 minutes early

    so that you can properly prepare for your appointment.

    5 Minutes Prior to Your Spray Tan

  • Wipe skin with pre-tan prep spray to remove any excess body oils or products from the skin.

  • Remove make-up and deodorant with baby wipes if you choose to do so.

  • Pull hair up and away from face and neck with a hair tie and cover with a hair cap.

  • If you have very light hair, rub a small amount of barrier cream along your exposed hairline to

    prevent discoloration.

  • Remove clothing, shoes and jewelry.

  • Change into your swimsuit or client disposables.

  • Apply lip balm to lips and over eyebrows to prevent discoloration (if you have very light eyebrows).

  • Insert nose filter into nasal openings.

  • Apply barrier cream to hands, elbows, knees, ankles and tops of feet.

  • Remove backing from Sole Patrols and apply to the soles of your feet.

  • Put on robe and join your tanning technician in the spray room.

    1st 5 Minutes After Your Spray Tan

    • Wipe off the palms of your hands with a baby wipe or dark towel. 
    • Once you are back in your dressing room, remove Sole Patrols.
    • Wait at least 10 minutes before getting dressed.

    • Place a towel over your seat for the car ride home.

    6-8 Hours After Your Spray Tan

    • Avoid any activity that would cause sweating (exercise, cleaning or showering) as your spray tan is developing during these hours. Contact with water or sweat could result in lines or uneven tanning.

    • If you choose to sleep in your spray tan so that it darkens overnight, please cover your bed with dark sheets and pillow cases so that the bronzer does not stain your regular sheets.

      8 Hour After Your Spray Tan (Post Tan Care):

    • Shower normally. You will see some color wash away from your skin. This is completely normal, and was only the color guard (the instant tan that you could see after your spray tan). The color guard is used to give immediate tan results, but also so that the technicians may see where they are applying solution. Do not be concerned by this, as your developed tan is still there.

    • Wash with a mild, DHA-friendly, moisturizing shower gel and a gentle bath poof.

    • While you are drying, remember to pat, not rub your skin.

    • Apply a moisturizer with sunscreen in the morning, and a tan extending lotion at night (please ask

      your tanning technician for more information).

      The Life of Your Spray Tan: (Post-Tan Care)

    • The life of your spray tan depends on the care you take of your skin. Moisturize twice a day and exfoliate gently 1 to 2 times per week. The following products have been shown to reduce the number of days that a spray tan will remain on the skin, so try to find alternatives or simply avoid these products until just before your next spray tanning session.

      – Band Aids
      – Face Masks, or Biore Pore Strips
      – Anti-Aging or Anti-Acne products
      – Bar Soaps
      – Hair Removal Creams and Shaving

    • If at all possible, you should try to avoid contact with chlorine or excessive sweating inside of closed toed shoes, as both can lead to premature fading of a spray tan.
