How do I prepare for a spray tan?
Exfoliate and shave the day before your session. This will get rid of any dead skin and provide a more even skin surface for the solution, it will also help the tan fade evenly towards the end of your spray. You will want to avoid any perfumes, lotion, oils or deodorant the day of, as they can create barriers on the skin, which will lead to uneven application of solution.
What do I wear to my spray tan?
Wear loose clothing in dark colors, preferably something you wont mind color getting on. The color may wash out, but it's not guaranteed. Your bra should also be loose fitting (no sports bras), you may even want to leave it off after your treatment. Avoid any moisture wicking or tight fitting fabrics such as workout clothing. Avoid tight intricate shoes as they may rub off the color while developing.
When can I shower?
It depends on which spray you choose. In our Pura booth, we recommend 8-10 hours before showering, though you may shower sooner. If you did an airbrush tan, we recommend a rinse (no soap or shampoo) 12-24 hours after spray, unless you do Venetian one hour spray, then we recommend after 1-3 hours that you rinse.
What should I do after my spray tan?
After your spray, you will want to avoid anything that will cause you to sweat or involving water, as this can leave streaks or marks on the skin. After your shower (not rinse) you will want to make sure you moisturize your skin. Avoid anything that has mineral oil or other stripping ingredients as this will make your tan fade faster. We recommend the CT tan extender.
