Pre-Tan Prep

airbrush-tanning

Proper prep is part of a successful airbrush tanning experience.

You should arrive to your SunSpray Tans appointment:

        • Having showered just prior to your scheduled appointment time
          • You must shower within 2 hours before your spray tan application. If your appointment is at 4pm, ensure that you have showered anytime between 2pm-4pm. If you do not, your body’s natural oils will prevent the tanning solution from penetrating your skin and a toner will be applied for an additional fee.
          • Shower with a clear shower gel using a wash cloth
          • Do NOT use a loofa or salt scrub
        • With your skin free of makeup, lotion, deodorant, and perfume the day of your appointment
        • Wearing loose fitting dark clothing. Avoid wearing leggings, jeggings, or jeans.
        • Wearing an undergarment. At least a thong style bottom is required; we sell disposables. What you tan in will be your tan line!
        • With all hair removal completed 24 hours prior to your appointment (waxing services or shaving)
        • With mani/pedi done prior to receiving your organic SunSpray tan

***You can NOT get wet following your tan. If it is raining, please come prepared with CLOSED TOED SHOES, COVER UP, and UMBRELLA***

If you have any residual tan from previously applied self tanner or an airbrush application from another salon:

  • Exfoliate 3 consecutive days prior to your scheduled appointment
    • You must shower using a mixture of baking soda and clear shower gel to exfoliate your entire body for 3 consecutive days prior to your appointment
    • Use a wash cloth
    • Do NOT use a loofa or salt scrub
  • Shower just prior to your scheduled appointment time
    • You must also shower within 2 hours before your spray tan application. If your appointment is at 4pm, ensure that you have showered anytime between 2pm-4pm. If you do not, your body’s natural oils will prevent the tanning solution from penetrating your skin and a toner will be applied for an additional fee.
