During your Spray Tan

In-Studio Appointments:

When you arrive at my studio I will walk you through the process (if you are new) and show you the different poses I will have you stand in. You will then undress to your comfort level. Female clients may go nude; male clients MUST wear underwear/swim trunks. I will spray a light mist of solution, with my spray gun, all over your skin. You will wait a few moments before dressing. 

Mobile Appointments:

I will arrive at your location. I will setup my equipment in a well-lit, well-ventilated and non-carpeted room. My tent is approximately the size of a shower stall. You will undress to your comfort level. Female clients may go nude; male clients MUST wear underwear/swim trunks. I will spray a light mist of solution, with my spray gun, all over your skin. You will wait a few moments before dressing.

Spray Tan Maintenance

  • You should rinse off anywhere from 30 minutes to 12 hours. I will direct you during your appointment when you should rinse off.
  • Use only water when rinsing off. Do not use any soaps, loofas, or washcloths. Your tan is still processing, using soaps may disrupt this process. Then you will want to pat your skin dry. No rubbing or scrubbing with the towel.
  • When you shower avoid bar soaps (especially DOVE products) and exfoliants. Keeping your skin moisturized will mean longer lasting results and more natural, even fading. We sell body wash and lotions specifically designed for sunless tanning. Please inquire about purchasing. 
  • Keep in mind that chlorine and salt water can dry the skin out, causing your tan to fade faster. Make sure you well moisturized after swimming in a pool/ocean.
  • Last, but certainly not lease, spray tanning solution does not contain any SPF. You will need to apply sunscreen if you plan on being in the sun for extended periods of time.
