Prepping For Your Spray
What should I do before my sunless spray tan?
If you are planning on receiving a manicure, pedicure, wax or threading, these services will remove your spray tan and should be done PRIOR to your spray tan session—NOT afterward.
On the day of your spray tan application, be sure to shower, shave and exfoliate. We do NOT recommend you use bar soap, or a sugar, salt, or oil scrub, because they tend to leave a residue on the skin and may cause uneven color absorption. Do not use ANY Dove, Bath & Body Works, Or Jergens Produts! It is sufficient to use a sponge or washcloth and an oil-free body wash to exfoliate with. Pay extra attention to scrub the dead skin from neck, elbows, wrists, knees, ankles and toes. Scrub all oils off of chest. Scrub all deodorant residue off armpits. If you have long hair, wash and condition your hair first before exfoliating, so that conditioner doesn't run down your body a leave a residue on your skin.
After your shower, do NOT apply any lotion, deodorant, make-up, or perfume. It is best NOT to have any barrier on your skin prior to your spray tan application. Don't worry if your skin feels dry. Prep Spray is used as the first step in our spray application process to balance your skin's pH and porosity. Plus, after tanning solution is applied, we will further hydrate your skin and seal your tan with HydroFirmSpray.
