Shower & exfoliate the whole body before your appointment. Make sure what your using is oil free. We highly recommend our Exfoliating Mitt which also removes old tan.
Previous self-tanner/spray tan must be removed.
Before arrival please do not apply any oils, makeup, perfumes or lotions as this can prevent the tan from sticking to the skin. Avoid deodorant if possible as well.
Shave/wax areas needed-most shaving creams contain lanolin (oil), so plain soap is best.
Ensure jewelry is removed & hair is pulled back.
What to Wear to Your Appointment
Dark, loose-fitting clothes, no tights or jeans-dresses are a great option. Have an umbrella handy just in case of rain.
Women - You can also wear your bathing suit. Keep in mind if having tan lines will be an issue or not for your upcoming events.
Men - bathing suit bottoms, underwear, or thong must be worn.
Please note: that there may be some minor colour transfer onto clothes or bedding directly after tan before your first shower. This will not stain and can be easily removed in the wash.
During Your Tan
Wear whatever you’re comfortable with. Some choose to go fully nude, others wear thong & strapless bra, or topless with underwear on. Disposable thongs for women are provided if needed.
Pasties for bust area & C String Tan Line Free Thongs are available for sale.
After Care Instructions
After your tan, don’t shower for 8-10 hrs as your tan is still developing. No exercise, sweating, getting hands or body wet, including dishwashing until you have taken your first shower after developing time has elapsed.
When showering, rinse with warm water until the water runs cleans-this will ensure all developer has been removed. Your tan will then be revealed. Soap can be used in the necessary areas, and the less soap used on the rest of the body, the longer your tan will last.
To keep your tan looking it's best & lasting long, apply an alcohol-free/perfume free moisturizer morning & night starting after your first shower. We recommend our Beach Bum Stay Golden Tan Extending Lotion.
Do not exfoliate the body until the tan is almost gone, or when you would like to start to remove it. Reduce shaving as well.
Swimming in pools & the ocean is completely fine, but it can cause your tan to fade quicker from the saltwater & pool chemicals.
Your tan can last anywhere between 5-7+ days depending on your skins integrity, tan prep and after care.
