Take a basic shower the morning of your spray tan. Use soap only.
Do not apply lotions, creams, or perfumes prior to session.
Use deodorant very sparingly, as a harmless green tint can appear when solution and deodorant mix.
Wear dark, loose fitting clothing and open toed sandals, flip-flops if possible. Tanning solution will wash out of most fabrics, but may stain nylons, Lycra and silk. Cotton is recommended.
While your tan is developing, you do not want clothing or foot wear that will rub against the skin.
Organic Spray Tan Post-Care Instructions:
Cover your car seat with a dark or black towel to prevent sweating and streaking.
Avoid wearing a bra, socks or other restrictive clothing immediately after your spray tan session. The looser fitting the better to avoid any streaking as the tan is developing.
Refrain from showering as long as possible, 8-12 hours minimum, up to 24 hours, but overnight is best.
Your first shower post spray tan should be just a rinse. You will notice the temporary bronzer washing away, leaving you beautifully bronzed underneath. Your tan will continue to develop even after the shower, so do not be alarmed if you’re not as tanned as you expect to be, it will continue to develop over the next 24 hours.
From this point on hydration is the key!
Moisturize twice a day to extend the life of your beautiful Bronze Age spray tan. This is crucial to maintain your tan and aides in fading evenly.
Avoid any type of DHA product that has a self tanner, ex. Jergens, Clarins, Neutrogena, St. Tropez, as these can turn your tan yellow.
The life of your tan will depend on the frequency of your workouts, showers and your skin’s exposure to chlorine and salt water.
If you plan on swimming, apply a thick layer of sunscreen lotion, as this puts a barrier between your spray tan and the water. Reapply sunscreen lotion often.
