Perhaps you have a special event coming up, whether it be a wedding, school dance or vacation getaway, a spray tan is a quick an easy way to get a natural looking tan. Some people may struggle to get tan, spending money and time burning themselves with no such luck of ever seeing a tan. Perhaps you ar health conscience (If you are YAY) you understand the risks of long term sun and UV exposure and do not want to harm your skin. Whatever the reason may be spray tans offer a safe, heathy alternative to UV tans! With many shades to choose from I will help you find the most natural looking option for you. Giving your skin a glowing, beautiful tan! Its up to you whether you wish to share your new found spray tan discovery with the people you who will be complimenting you on how great you look and asking you what you have done differently. 


You will want to shower a minimum of two hours before your spray tan. Do not shower right before coming or you risk your skin being water logged, which could result in the solution becoming runny when applied to your skin. 

Exfoliate at least 24 hours before your spray so that the solutions hold onto your freshly exfoliated skin.

You will not want to have any lotion, sunscreen, deodorant or makeup on when getting sprayed. These will act as a barriers and sometimes will even change you a strange tint of green for at least an hour after your spray. Nobody wants to turn green, so avoid lotion the day of your spray. You may apply lotion to dry areas of you skin such as knees, elbows, hands and feet. Do not apply anywhere else though in order to receive the smoothest tan possible.


Typically a spray tan will last 7-10 days. It varies from person to person depending on your every day activities. If you are a runner or spend a lot of time in the gym, sweating it will fade a little faster. Same with swimming. If you stay dry all week long and moisturize religiously you could get a week, maybe two with your tan. Moisturizing with a all natural or organic lotion daily will increase the length of you tan. I do offer all natural hemp lotions which are great for spray tans.


You can come every week to every other week if you want to keep you tan all year long. Just make sure you read up on exfoliating and moisturizing if you do in order to keep your tan looking as natural as possible, or come in only when needed for special events. It's totally up to you!


Wear whatever you feel most comfortable in, women may go in the buff, keep in mind you will want dark loose fitting clothing to wear home afterwards. Some solution may end up on clothing, however our solutions are water soluble and washes out of most clothing. Do not where white the day of your spray!


My solutions have cosmetic bronzer in them. This enables you to leave with instant color and me to clearly see the spray applied to your skin. Clear solutions are also available. The bronzer will have to be left on for a minimum of 8 hours before you can rinse it off. 1 to 3 hours when choosing the rapid tan. The bronzer will rub off on clothing but as stated the it is water soluble. The bronzer may drip, smudge, smear or run from time to time. This is normal and should rinse away in the shower, revealing a nice, smooth, even tan underneath. Do not touch your skin, especially when it is still wet! The bronzer will stain the palms of your hands orange. If you are getting sprayed near bed time keep in mind that you do not want to touch yourself in your sleep. Also be carful when drying off and getting dressed after your spray to not get the bronzer on your palms. If you do not want to have bronzer on you for the full 8 hours I would suggest the rapped tan, which allows you to rinse off after 1-3 hours.


No. Orange is what happens when you stray to far away from your natural skin tone. I suggest that you start with a light shade. You can always try a darker one next time. If you stay in your skin tone range you will have a beautiful, natural looking glow. I will always help you decide what shade will work best for you.


You can not get wet for a minimum of 8 hours. Your tan will not develop immediately, and takes time to start to show up, hence the bronzers. During this time you will get darker as it develops. After you wash the bronzer away it will reveal your new tan. Your tan will continue to develop for the next 24 hours and will at its peak and looking its best on the 2nd day. When getting a tan for a special event, plan your tan for 2 days ahead. 


You will want to exfoliate at least 24 hours before getting sprayed. This will help your skin to be fresh and ready to hold the color. You will also want to exfoliate 3 to 4 days after your spray to prevent scaly, spotty looking skin. For best results use a good pair of exfoliating gloves or cloth when in the shower. Continue to exfoliate daily until your tan has faded evenly. Once your tan has disappeared you will be ready for a new one!


* Come as clean as possible the day or your spray (not lotion on etc.)

* Wear dark, loose fitting clothes to go home in.

* Stay dry for at least 8 hours after your spray.

* Do not touch your skin with bronzer on unless you want orang epalms.

* Baby your skin for the first shower by only rinsing off wit a gentle warm water rinse,

* Moisturize well every day with a all natural lotion to prolong the length of you tan.

* Use sulfate free washes in the shower to reduce stripping away your color.

*Exfoliate by your third shower 

* To keep your tan all year long, book a spray every week to every two weeks.
