BEFORE & AFTER SUNLESS TANNING TIPS

Proper Before & After Care For Your Brown Sugar Custom Airbrush Tan Will Give You The Best Results And Extend The Life Of Your Tan

PREP BEFORE

start

EXFOLIATE

 

Exfoliating your body will give your skin a great smooth layer to absorb our custom tanning solution. We recommend using an exfoliating mitt or gloves to properly exfoliate your skin. The best mitt we’ve found is available at the salon, called the Renaissance Exfoliating Mitt.

SHAVE OR WAX THE DAY BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT

 

We recommend exfoliating and shaving the day before your appointment. Whatever you do, please don’t shave the day of your appointment. Shaving the day of your appointment leaves your pores open and produces a spotty spray tan. We recommend waxing be down 2 days prior to your airbrush tanning appointment.

MANI & PEDI

 

We recommend mani & pedi appointments be done a day or two before your airbrush tanning appointment. We also recommend covering your finger & toe nails with vasoline or barrier cream during your airbrush tan to protect your nails from absorbing the solution. We have both at the salon for your convenience.

DAY OF TIPS

start

ARRIVE 5-10 MINUTES BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT

 

It’s best not to show up rushed & sweaty for your appointment…best to arrive & relax before your appointment.

CLEAN SHOWERED SKIN IS BEST

 

Please arrive showered with clean skin; No lotions, creams or deodorant of any kind on your body as they will adversely affect the evenness of your airbrush tan.

BRING LOOSE FITTING DARK CLOTHES

 

Bring with you loose fitting, dark clothing to wear afterwards and comfortable, breathable shoes. We do not recommend denim or tight clothes and recommend not wearing a bra for at least a few hours to prevent lines from rubbing into your tan.

AFTER CARE

start

6 HOUR RULE

 

Wait 6 hours minimum before showering. This also means to avoid all water contact with your skin and anything that would cause perspiration during those 6 hours as well.

WASH THOROUGHLY

 

Make sure to wash thoroughly during your first shower. Use a body wash, or even bar soap to get ALL the instant bronzer off of your body. This will keep your tan from rubbing off on any clothing. Please avoid using DOVE products during your tan, as they tend to make you fade unevenly.

MOISTURIZE

 

Check your body moisturizer’s ingredient label. You’ll need to moisturize daily AFTER your first post tan shower. Ideally, you’ll want 1-2 oils in your lotion. (Although lotion containing mineral oil is a big NO-NO!) Lotion 1-2 times a day to keep your skin hydrated. If you don’t already have something that works, we can set you up with a great one while you’re in the salon.

END OF CYCLE

 

At 7-10 days, when the tan starts to fade, you can keep moisturizing and let the tan fade away, or exfoliate it all off at once, and come in for another vibrant golden glow!
