Pre Tan Care
Before your spray tan session it is important to follow these before care instructions below.
If not followed properly your tan will not result to its fullest potential. If you have any
questions please feel free to Contact us at anytime. Please follow them carefully; this
will help you achieve a flawless beautiful tan!
24 Hours Before your Spray Tan
Shower, but do not apply body oils or moisturizer to skin (unless you have very dry skin) as this can create a barrier on your skin. Exfoliate entire body with mild, oil free exfoliate while in the shower. A loofah is known to help remove dead skin layers to help in the exfoliating process. The tanning solution will attach to the dead skin cells and leave your tan less than perfect. While exfoliating pay extra attention to the knees, elbows, wrists and ankles as these areas of the body have a larger amount of dead skin cells to shed. When you have finished exfoliating it is important to avoid using any moisturizers if possible.
Shave or use depilatory cream to remove unwanted body hair at this shower time as well.
Day of your Spray Tan
Remove ALL barriers on your body. This includes: make up, oils, perfume, cologne, after shave, lotions, deodorant, body masks etc with baby wipes or gentle soap.
Pull hair up and away from face and neck with a hair tie of some sort.
Wear loose dark colored clothing to your spray tan session.
* IMPORTANT * ALL Barriers must be removed from your body such as make up, oils, perfume, cologne, after shave, lotions, deodorant, body masks etc. for us to perform your spray tan service. If they are not properly removed the spray tan can look streaky, blotchy, unnatural, unevenly colored and not to the spray tans fullest looking potential. Not in it for the money, in it for long lasting client relationships! We want your spray tan to look flawless and most importantly have YOU 'the client' completely satisfied! :)
Post Tan Care
As your new spray tan is developing after your spray tan session it is important you follow these steps to properly maintain your tans
best color and a longer-lasting tan life. By not following these steps your tan can result in discoloration, fading, streaking, and a
shorter tan life. Please read the following steps and if you have any questions we encourage you to please Contact us. You put your trust within Tan Fx and our service to you is ongoing even AFTER your spray tan...we are your live support system!
10-12 Hours After your Spray Tan
Wear loose, comfortable, dark colored clothing.
Do not do any type of activity that will cause your body to get wet or will make you sweat for it least 10-12 hours after your spray tan. Some include: Showering, Bathing, Working out, swimming, being in the heat... any activity that may cause you to perspire and could possibly cause removal of spray tan, streaking and discoloration of your spray tan. 10-12 hours may seem like a long period of time however ideally, the DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) in the tanning solution needs 12 hours for the skin to develop its full tanned color.
If you choose to sleep in your spray tan (not showering the first day) so that it darkens overnight (which is completely fine to do), please cover your bed with dark sheets and pillow cases so that any bronzer does not possibly stain your regular sheets while setting into your pores.
It is important you wait it least 10-12 hours after your spray tan to take your first shower to protect your tan that's setting in, avoid possible removal of color and streaking. Shower normally however try to stay away from long hot showers (this will help extend the life of the tan longer) and do not rub yourself dry after showering, simply pat yourself dry (that may cause streaking or removal of solution color in certain areas). You will see some excess tan color wash away from your skin the first 1 or 2 showers. This is completely normal, and was only the color guard (instant tan that you could see after your spray tan). The color guard is used to give immediate tan results, also so that the technician may see where they're applying solution. Don't be concerned by this, your developed tan is still there and working.
Hydrated skin is the essential key for properly maintaining a longer-lasting tan.Apply a moisturizer the morning and evening after your first shower, and continue to moisturize daily thereafter.This step is very important so please remember to keep your skin hydrated after your spray tan by applying a moisturizer that works best for your skin type.
Remember the life of your spray tan depends on the care you take of your skin. Moisturize twice a day and exfoliate gently. Harsh chemical products such as prescription face wash, anti aging cream & face wash, body scrubs w beads in them, band aids, face masks, facial pore strips, hair removal creams/shaving, excessive sweating and chlorine in pools have been shown to reduce the number of days that a spray tan will remain on the skin, so try to find alternatives or simply avoid these products until just before your next spray tanning session if possible.
