We suggest getting a spray tan 2-3 days before a formal event to have the PERFECT GLOW!
Exfoliate ATLEAST 24 Hours before your appointment.
Shower and Shave 24 hours before your appointment, pores need time to close before the application.
Wax 48 hours before your appointment, as waxy residue can cause discoloration.
Drink plenty of water the week of your appointment. This will help plump and hydrate your skin!
When booking events, a Spray Tan is the LAST appointment you book!
Manicures, Pedicures, Lashes, Massages, Spa Treatments, facial & body waxing should be done 24 hours prior to your spray tan appointment
Day of the appointment
Do NOT wear any makeup, creams, sunscreen, or perfume. Your skin must be 100% clean and dry!
Do NOT wear any deodorant that day.
If you must, shower at least 3 hours before your apt with warm-cold water and only rinse. Steam can open up your pores.
Do NOT use lotion, gel, wax, shaving cream or other oil-based products, as they could leave residues on the skin and prevent the solution from developing correctly.
You can wear a bathing suit, undergarments, or nothing at all. I recommend black or dark, and remember, you create the tan lines!
Dress for the weather when leaving your appointment. Wear dark, loose fitting clothing, no bras, leggings, or tight clingy clothing.
Please note, some spray tan residue may come off on your clothing. However it will easily be removed in the wash.
AVOID activities that provoke sweating or any contact with water/liquids. If it's raining or snowing, make sure you cover up.
Do NOT apply creams or makeup on your skin.
If your sleeping with the solution on, wear long sleeves.
AVOID skin on skin contact. (intimacy, breastfeeding) (wear socks to bed)
When rinsing, rinse the whole body and face thoroughly, until the water runs clear. Do not use any soap/shampoo during the first shower.
Pat, don't rub skin dry.
Do NOT wax, a delicate shave may be done occasionally.
Moisturize daily and AVOID products with a lot of: (including soaps and body wash)
MINERAL OILS | PETROLIUM | PERFUME | ALCOHOL | SULFATE
AVOID excessive sweating, jacuzzies and saunas, as well as taking long hot baths or showers can often cause faster fading.
Use gentle cleansers, and no oil-based or exfoliating products. Start exfoliating ONLY when the tan starts to fade, and you're ready to say goodbye.
Spray tans can cause the skin to be very thirsty, stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water

When to book?
When booking your GLOW you'll want to book it 2-3 days before your event to ensure that you have the perfect colour. Our regular solutions require a sitting time of 8-12 hours, and our rapid solutions only need 1-5 hours on the skin. Please plan your day accordingly.
Will I go orange?
No! If you follow the before and after prep tips then you should achieve the perfect sun kissed glow! However, if you leave the solution on for longer then suggested, this may result in not an ideal colouring.
How long is the appointment?
From start to finish it is approx. 30 mins.
How long will my tan last?
7-10 days, unfortunately spray tans don't last forever. But keep moisturized and drinking plenty of water and your tan should fade evenly. When you're ready to say goodbye to your tan start exfoliating and getting ready to come again!
My tan looks really dark and I'm starting to freak out!
Don't worry, your tan will look much darker before you shower for the first time. Your tan is developing and since there is a bronzer in the initial spray you will look much darker till you wash it off. Then you will have a beautiful golden colour.
Is my tan washing off when I shower?
No! When we spray on the solution, there is a bronzer to give you that instant gratification, When you shower, the bronzer will wash off (this is why you only rinse for your first shower) this is not your spray tan!
Will it stain my clothes or sheets?
The colour bronzer washes our of most materials, however it is not guaranteed. We suggest wearing dark loose clothing while the tan is developing.
