After Care

Must do's:

  • Shower 8-12 hours after application with a spray tan approved body wash. (avoid Sodium laureth sulfate soaps)
  • After 1st shower lotion body 2 times daily with spray tan approved moisturizer (avoid products with Mineral Oil & alcohol)
  • Always pat skin dry, NEVER rub with a towel
  • Avoid water/rain, sweating, heavy exercising while tan is still developing e.g. before your 1st shower
  • Wear long sleeve shirts while tan is developing if you have small children
  • Bring a towel or wear loose pants if you have leather car seats.

I also carried spray tan recommended moisturizer, tan extender, shower gel, and exfoliating mitts for a very reasonable price. These are the ONLY products I recommend for spray tanning.

The Session

What to expect:

  • Wear suitable swimwear or underwear to create desired look  
    (Ladies may go topless or nude. Men must wear underwear)
  • Choose dark color under garment to get sprayed in to prevent visible stains
  • Your session should last around 15 mins
  • You should be able to dry about 3 mins after application
  • DO NOT touch skin whilst it is developing to avoid tanned fingers. (Use caution when sleeping at night: keep your hands off of your face and don't put hands in between legs.)

Before your Spray Tan Session


  • Waxing or Pedicures/Manicures 24 hours before your session
  • Shower, Shave, & Exfoliate your skin at least 8 hours (recommend 24 hours) before your session (baking soda & wash cloth are great to exfoliate)
  • Wash and rinse your hair before exfoliating your skin to prevent conditioner residue to build up onto the skin (it will cause streaks) exfoliating should be the last thing you do before you get out of the shower.
  • Avoid heavy Moisturizing body washes 48 hours before your tan such as Dove brand, its causes streaks and blotchiness.
  • DO NOT apply lotions, deodorant, perfumes or anything on skin
  • Wear loose breathable dark clothing and open shoes e.g. flip flops
