Airbrush Prep and Maintenance 

 

 

 

  1. Make sure you shower, shave and exfoliate your skin prior to coming in for your spray tan appointment.

  2. Your spray tan will work best on clean skin. Be sure your skin is free from any deodorant, perfume, make-up, body oils or lotion, as these may react with the tanning agents.

  3. Wear loose, dark clothing the day of your spray tan. This will help speed the drying process, and if there are any marks left on your clothes, they will be easily washed away (and most of the time not even seen). If you choose to sleep in your spray tan, you may see marks on your sheets as well. 

  4. You may bring a swimsuit (preferably dark in color) to wear during the spray tan, otherwise you are free to use any undergarment your prefer. Note: Whatever you choose to wear or not wear, you will have tan lines in those areas where the body is clothed. 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are some helpful guidelines that will help you get the most out of your airbrush tan, from preparing to appointment to maintaining the look of your tan in the following

 

Immediately after your tan:

  1. Keep your skin completely dry, wear loose clothing and avoid contact with water. Also, avoid activities that make you perspire such as exercise. Note: This will include mani/pedi's as well. Be sure to get those done at least 24-48 hours prior to your appointment. 

  2. Do not apply any products over the developing tan. Allow tan to develop for at least 6-8 hours* (overnight is best) before rinsing off and applying any products to your skin.

  3. Your tan will continue to get darker throughout the day after being sprayed. This is the color guide setting in. After you shower, your tan will look even and more natural.

After Tan Has Developed (6-8 Hours*)

  1. Rinse off remaining color guide with warm water. Don’t worry: this is not taking away your tan!

  2. We do not recommend using very hot water for your shower to ensure your tan lasts longer.

  3. Make sure to pat your skin dry and do not use a loofah if possible. Do not rub roughly on your skin as this will exfoliate your spray tan off.

  4. Avoid products that contain alpha hydroxyl acids, as they can strip the tan, as can chlorine found in pools & hot tubs.

  5. Use a daily moisturizer morning and night to help maintain your spray tan. We recommend this lotion for you to prolong your tan and maximize the results of your service.

  6. Everyone’s skin is different, but for most people, the spray tan will begin to fade in about a week. 

  7.  Once your tan begins to fade, you will see that the skin looks dry and almost spotty in some areas. This is normal for clients that are not moisturizing properly. To avoid the spotty fading, it is recommended that you use the recommended products throughout the life of your tan.

Preparing for your airbrush tan:

*Rapid Glow will only require a developing period of  2-4 hours depending on the desired color. 

2 hours = Light, 3 hours = Medium, 4 hours = Dark 

Upgrade from the Classic Glow to Rapid for quicker shower times. 

When you are ready, exfoliate with a recommended scrub and click Book Now to schedule you next Glow.
