pre+POST TAN CARE:
Please follow these pre and post-tanning directions to ensure
best tan results.
Keep in mind: The tan looks better 2 days after session.
Thursday appts for Saturday events are best.
Manicure, pedicure wax+ spa services:
Should all be done at least a day before your tan session.
Shower, shave, + exfoliate your body 24 hours before your airbrush session. This will prepare your skin, leaving it clean, but giving it time to gain its natural or neutral ph level. The solutions works really well on skin that is at a "not too dry, but not too oily balance".
*It's best to use a clear shower gel, not like Olay, Dove, or any bar of soap that may leave a residue on your skin that can interfere with the application.
**If you have very dry skin you may use a light lotion after your shower, making sure it's absorbed way before your session.
*No makeup and no deodorant before your session.
(we have makeup wipes, if needed)
The day of your airbrush tan:
*Bring or wear comfortable clothes for after session.
* The solution will not stain your clothes.
*The actual airbrush application takes 5 minutes.
*Total meeting, set up, and application take up to or less than 15 minutes.
*For the actual airbrush session you can wear your own underwear or swimwear. A lot of my clients don't like any tan lines and that's totally fine with me!
my Organic Body BALM
*I'll have a 4oz ($25) after tan base skin moisturizer. The way to keep your glow lasting, and fade the right way is to moisturize your skin the properly and With the right stuff.
I really love my organic body balm.
It's a totally natural product that I created for myself, and now for my clients. Something that is actually really good for your skin, and compatible with a spray tan at the same time.
some ingredients are:
Essential oils used for skin and anti-age(by DOTERA AND YOUNG LIVING ONLY)
+If you don't use my body balm try using something unscented, or a more natural product.
See more info on tan preventatives list.
Try to keep skin dry and cool, do not wash off for 8-12 hours after your session.
If you have to leave tan over night and go past 12 hours, that's ok too.
Wash your body with soap using your hands, no scrubbing with loofah.
You will see some cosmetic bronzer in the shower; that's normal.
Pat dry your skin after your shower, do not rub or wipe too hard with the towel.
-The idea is to keep this "new glow" as long as you can, so to be sensitive, keep skin moisturized is key. be easy on your new sun kissed skin.
Shaving after a tan is ok if needed, it just may lighten the tan.
See more info on tan preventatives list.
Avoid long, hot showers or baths, excessive sweating, and scrubbing the skin while having a fresh airbrush tan. Swimming pools, Jacuzzi’s, saunas, and steam rooms may all shorten the length of your tan.
Working out should be ok, but avoid sweating excessively. Dab sweat, do not wipe too hard.
You may want to wear dark clothing because you might see some light yellowish color from the tan inside your clothes.
Don’t limit yourself on your vacation.
If you will be in chlorine or natural salt water, a thick layer of SPF lotion may help protect your tan.
+See more info on this in
Days after your tan: When your skin is in fading mode (or the "naturally exfoliating", "skin shedding", "back to pale" process) and you want to clear off any left over solution, you may scrub any bit of color left by soaking skin in warm bath using a warm, wet towel and soap, or a loofah to clean extra old color off skin. That's what I found to work the best for exfoliating my skin back to clean again. You'll see the color transferring on to the towel, that's ok as it'll come out in the wash.
*See me again 12 days after your session, if needed. *This way you have a new clean layer of skin to tan for your next event.
Tan preventatives list:
SOME USERS (NOT ALL)
HAVE FOUND THE FOLLOWING Helps TO PREVENT FADE, Lightening, OR MAKING A SUNLESS TAN BLOTCHY:
●A woman’s tan may develop differently during various hormonal changes (ovulation, menstruation, menopause, or pregnancy). It may fade harsh, produce a patchy effect, develop a lighter color or no color at all
●Some users have found that Dove soap and shower gel will fade a tan faster
●Hair inhibiting lotions (Jergens) tend to make a sunless tan yellow
●Anti-aging products that “renew”, “refresh”, or otherwise exfoliate the skin
●AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acids – glycolic, lactic, malic, citric, and tartaric acids)
●Retin – A type products (Retin-A, Renova, Tazorac, Tretinoin)
●Toners containing alcohols or witch hazel
●Anti-acne products that exfoliate the skin – accutane, salicylic acid
●Harsh makeup removers
●Bar soaps, especially deodorant varieties
●Usage of loofa, scrub mitt, etc..
●Removal of adhesive tape or band aids
●Facial masks and exfoliating scrub
●Bore type adhesive facial strips
●Wax hair removal
●Depilatory hair removal products like Nair, or Veet, etc.
●Shaving exfoliates skin, which fades your tan. (Clients should always use a sharp clean razor with a lubricating product/hair conditioner which will not damage a tan. A dull razor scrapes off more skin
●Body hair bleach
●Submersion in hot tub, swimming pool with chlorine, or salt water. –An application of a thick waterproof lotion sun block helps
●People with oily skin tend to develop a lighter tan than people with dry skin. The oil can coat the skin while the dry skin absorbs more products at a faster rate
●Bug spray when sprayed directly onto the skin, can remove or fade the tan
-Custom airbrush tans typically develop beautifully with time and care.
-Most important thing to understand is that the solution is a natural based product that will work differently depending on skin chemistry. Everyone is different and results will always vary.
-Wait 7-10 days for your next session.
