It's starting to finally feel like Spring, so you know what that means... time to break out those dresses and bare those legs. If yours are needing a sun kissed glow, we've got you covered! With our airbrush tan, you can have the bronzed skin you want within minutes. Plus, it will save you from premature aging and the risk of skin cancer you would get from sitting in the sun.
If you've never had an airbrush tan before and you're thinking about trying it out, here's some things you'll need to know.
Shave and exfoliate beforehand.
This will help you remove any dead skin, to help your tan last longer and look more even. If you have sensitive skin, we recommend doing it the night before you come to give your skin time to breathe.
Wear black, loose clothing.
You don't want to wear anything that is too tight right after your session, because it could cause the spray tan to dry unevenly. Wear black in case any of the excess product rubs off onto your clothing.
Plan your spa trip accordingly.
If you plan on getting a spray tan on the same day as a manicure or pedicure, we will always schedule your mani or pedi first, so any soaking and scrubbing won't mess up your tan.
Avoid sweating for a little bit.
I.e. — don't hit up the gym right after you get your tan. Sweating could mess up the even layer of your spray tan. Don't work out or go into a sauna or steam room within a few hours of your spray.
Decide whether you want tan lines or not.
Some people decide to ditch their underwear all together to avoid tan lines at all costs. Others wear specific underwear to get tan lines and really show off their bronzed skin. We offer disposable undies as one option, but the choice is up to you. Wear whatever you are comfortable with during the spray session, but keep in mind that if you do want to wear something make sure it is black (to avoid stains) and not a lace material (to avoid an uneven tan in that area).
Talk to your technician.
Your technician is skilled in airbrush tanning and is there to help you every step of the way. She's there to answer your questions and also speak to you about the best time to shower after your spray tan, to make sure the product sets in properly.
