Dark, loose fitting clothing. After the tan you do not want to put on anything tight such as leggings, jeans, or a bra. A loose dress or baggy t-shirt and sweats/ shorts are best. 

Women 18+ can choose to go nude, topless, panties, or whatever they feel most comfortable in during the tan. Men must wear undergarments. 

(under 18 must have parental consent)

Can I get a spray tan while pregnant or breast feeding?

Short answer, yes. 

All of our products are non-toxic, natural, eco-certified, vegan, & cruelty free. However we always recommend consulting your doctor before tanning while pregnant. 

Breast feeding tip: wear bra or pasties during the tan or use a wipe afterwards to remove any unwanted tan.

What can I do to make the tan last longer?

KEEP YOUR SKIN HYDRATED! 

Moisturized with recommended lotions 1-2 times daily.  Drink your water. Avoid hot tubs and saunas. Don not scrub/exfoliate or soak the tan until you are ready to remove it. Don't use products with parebens or mineral oils. The longevity of the tan is based on how well you take care of the tan. 

What can I expect during my appointment?

The whole appointment will take about 20 minutes. When you arrive we will discuss the type of tan you want and your desired color. You will then get undressed, step onto the sticky feet, put on a hair net, then we will begin the tan. 

Depending on the type of solution, your technician will tell you how long to wait before rinsing. You will rinse the tan in a luke warm shower 2-6 hours for rapid solution  &  8-12 hours for classic solution.

How do I remove left over tan?

After 7-10 days you will need to remove any unwanted tan left before getting another. Soak in the tub for 15-20 minutes and exfoliate thoroughly. We sell exfoliating mitts and tan remover.

Can I still get a tan naturally in the sun with a spray tan?

YES. 

A spray tan does not block the sun and is not a UV protectant. You still need to use sunscreen. A few sunscreens we recommend are: Sunbum, Coola, Elta MD, & Alba Botanica. (Use sunscreen lotion, NOT aerosol sprays)

Will the tan stain my clothing or bed sheets?

No, the bronzer washes out in a normal wash cycle. You will have some of the cosmetic bronzer rub off initially, but not to worry, it will not mess up the tan and will wash out.
