MAKE YOUR AIRBRUSH TAN
LOOK BETTER AND LAST LONGER!!
PREPARING FOR YOUR AIRBRUSH TAN
What to do before the appointment:
*The day before or day of your session, shower and shave as normal. (Wax at least 2 days prior.) During your shower use an exfoliating wash or scrub to remove dry, flaky skin that may cause uneven tanning.
*Do not wear makeup, powder, deodorant or lotion immediately prior to application. All of these will create a barrier on the surface of your skin.
What to wear for your appointment:
*You may tan in the garment of your choice; bathing suits and underwear work well. Fully nude is ok and we also can provide disposable thongs (underwear). The DHA solution should wash out of most clothing, just wash as soon as possible.
*Wear dark, loose fitting clothing to the appointment. We recommend shorts and a T-shirt. (Jeans and tight clothes can rub off the DHA bronzer.)
*Wear your hair back from your face and neck in a pony-tail or clip. If you have bangs, please use a headband to keep hair off your face. (We’ll use a hair cover during application.)*
MAINTAINING YOUR UV-FREE TAN
*After your spray tanning session, You must avoid water entirely for at least 4-8 hours or you will stop the tanning action of the DHA!
*Avoid activities that may cause you to sweat excessively for at least 8 hrs. Remember, you have just been “painted” with a water soluble solution and perspiration can cause streaking.
*Ideally, wait at least eight hours (or more) before showering or bathing with any kind of soap or shower gel. We recommend 24 hrs if possible. If you absolutely must shower before the 8 hour period, wait at least 4 hours, then use plain water only to allow your tan to continue to develop (no scrubbing and gentle patting with the towel)
*Once you’ve showered the first time, you will see slight discoloration in the water, the ‘‘instant color’’ cosmetic bronzer will wash off just as it is designed to do.
*Exposure to chorine from a pool or hot tub and/or long, hot showers and bathes can cause your tan to fade faster. Avoid if possible…
**Apply moisturizer everyday after your tanning session
and especially after showers.**
