WHY SPRAY TAN?
Perhaps you have a special event coming up, whether it be a wedding, school dance or vacation getaway, a spray tan is a quick and 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 are health conscience (If you are YAY!) and 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! It’s up to you whether you wish to share your newfound spray tan discovery with the people who will be complimenting you on how great you look and asking you what you have done differently.
HOW DO I PREPARE AND ARRIVE?
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 barriers and sometimes will even turn 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 your skin such as knees, elbows, hands and feet. Do NOT apply anywhere else though in order to receive the smoothest tan possible.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Typically, a spray tan will last 7-12 days. It varies from person to person depending on your everyday 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 even two, with your tan. Moisturizing with an all-natural or organic lotion daily will increase the length of your tan. I do offer all natural hemp lotions, which are great for spray tans.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I SPRAY TAN?
You can come every week to every other week if you want to keep your 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.
WHAT DO I WEAR?
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 wash out of most clothing. Do NOT wear WHITE the day of your spray!
WILL I BE ORANGE?
No. Orange is what happens when you stray too 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 which shade will work best for you.
