Spray Tan Tips


  • • Shower, Shave and Exfoliate before your tanning session.
  • • Skin must be clean and dry before being sprayed. Do not apply deodorant, moisturizers, perfumes, oils, or makeup before your tanning session.
  • • Wear loose dark clothing and loose fitting sandals. DHA solution washes out of cotton garments, but will not wash out of synthetic, silk, leather or suede materials.
  • • Remove all contact lens and jewelry before being sprayed.


  • • Let your tan set for at least 8-12 hours before showering or taking a bath. This allows your tan to develop.
  • • Avoid activities that may cause you to sweat excessively. Use the air conditioner in your car on a hot day.
  • • You must avoid water entirely until you shower or you will stop the tanning action of the DHA solution or cause streaks.
  • • Avoid applying moisturizers or deodorants until you shower.
  • • Use a moisturizing body wash and apply by hand when showering. Do not use any bar soaps or any exfoliating scrubs.
  • • Avoid extremely hot baths.
  • • Always pat dry with a towel after you shower. Do not rub.
  • • You may begin moisturizing twice a day after your first shower.
  • • Avoid lotions containing Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) & Mineral Oil as these may cause skin exfoliation.

Additional Tips for a Flawless Spray Tan:

  • • Get manicures or pedicures before your spray tan. The exfoliant and water soak will take the color off legs & feet. Polish change after is OK.
  • • Make sure your hair and spa appointments are before your spray tan session.
  • • Make sure to shave or wax before tanning.
  • • If it’s raining, wear something to cover your skin and bring an umbrella.
  • • We recommend that your appointment is one or two days prior to an event or trip.
  • • Make sure to keep your skin hydrated it will retain the tan longer.
  • • If you notice premature fading of your spray tan, you can correct this by touching up your spray tan with a ‘Tan in a Can’ spray tanning product. Please ask our tanning technician for more information.
  • • To maintain your tan have an Airbrush session every 7 to 10 days.
  • • Remember that a spray tan does not provide any sun protection, remember to use a SPF sunscreen when in the sun!
