TANNING FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Typically 7 to 10 days. Your at home care is very important in extending the life of your tan. To help extend your tan, we recommend avoiding long, hot showers, Mineral Oil based lotions and excessive exfoliation. Try to minimize swimming in chlorinated pools and the ocean, as this can be very drying to the skin and cause your tan to fade quicker. Also, people who work out a lot and shower more often will not keep their tans as long as most.
We recommend scheduling your spray tan at least 24-48 hours before your special event. This allows your tan to fully develop. If you are getting married, we advise that you come in 2-3 weeks before your special day to do a test run to ensure you achieve the results you are looking for.
Be sure to moisturize at least once a day.
When DHA (dihydroxyacetone ), a colorless 3-carbon sugar is applied to the skin, a chemical reaction happens as it reacts with your amino acids, creating a beautiful tanned look. Our solution is an ORGANIC BASED DHA that is derived from sugar. The FDA has approved the use of DHA on the skin and in the cosmetic industry. DHA carries less health risks than any other method to achieve a tanned appearance without sun exposure and has been approved for sunless tanning. With any skin care product, mild irritations may occur for those with sensitive skin. You will need to leave the tan on your skin for a minimum of 8 hours, but 24 is desired.

The answer is yes but please consults your physician first.
Absolutely not!!! You will still need to use SPF when out in the sun. A lot of people think since your skin looks “tan” you are protected but that is NOT the case.
Not at all. It is common for the tanning solution to transfer onto your sheets and clothing generally the first day, so we recommend wearing dark, loose fitting clothing. Also, the solution is water-soluble, therefore, if the solution does get on any clothing items, it washes right out.
We do our best to remove any excess before you leave, but if we missed a spot, give this a try; mix the juice from a lemon with some sugar and the lemon will lighten and the sugar will exfoliate.
Yes, shower and lightly exfoliate the day of . Be sure to forgo applying any moisturizer a this can created a barrier on your skin.
It’s best to do your shaving the day of and any waxing 24 to 48 hours. Also if you need to wax please try to wax about 1 to 2 days before your spray to avoid the spray from getting into your pores, which are freshly open.
