Spray Tan Care

Our philosophy is that glowing skin begins with exceptional skincare. To ensure your skin is the ideal canvas for a flawless spray tan, it's important that you follow these skin preparation and aftercare instructions to help you maintain a gorgeous glow for as long as possible!

Spray Tan Care: Hours

Pre-Spray Tan

- Complete all other beauty services including nails, waxing, facials, and massages at least 1-2 days before your appointment.

- Exfoliate 24 hours prior to your spray tan. Proper exfoliation is a key step in preparing for a flawless spray tan and doing so 24 hours in advance will give your pores time to close to avoid discoloration. Exfoliate using a loofah, wash rag, or any oil-free scrub.  DO NOT apply lotions, oils, or perfumes. 

-Shave no later than 12 hours before your appointment.

Post Spray Tan

-Have loose-fitting clothes to change into. Avoid wearing a bra, socks or other restrictive clothing until after your first rinse. The looser fitting the better chance you will have in avoiding any accidental streaking as the tan is developing.


-Wait a minimum of 6-8 hours before showering, unless your spray tan artist instructed otherwise.


- Your first shower should only be a rinse (no soap). Using warm water, thoroughly remove the all of the surface bronzer from your skin with your hands. The main cause for streaks is that the bronzer was not rinsed off properly and can end up staining the skin for several days.

- Do not apply any lotion until 12 hours after your first rinse as the tan will continue to develop and lotion will disrupt it from doing so properly.

Spray Tan Maintenance

- Shower using a natural body wash.

- Apply lotion twice a day. Hydration is key at this point! Use a mild lotion that does not contain a lot of extra fragrance. We recommend CeraVe or something similar. 

- Wait at least 3 days after your tan before shaving again.

- Avoid harsh scrubbing, hot water, chlorine, and salt water as much as you can. If you do plan on swimming, wear a think layer of waterproof sunscreen to help repel the water.

- Pat dry.
