When is the best time to schedule an appointment?
If you are tanning for a special event, try to schedule 1 to 2 days prior to your event. If you are leaving for vacation, the day before you leave is best.
Try to schedule your appointment after any hair removal appointments, massages, nail treatments, or exercising.
If you are not able to schedule a nail appointment before your tan, that is ok, just ask them skip feet soaking and scrubbing.
Do I need to shower and exfoliate right before my appointment?
It is best to shower, shave and exfoliate 24 hours before you appointment. If you are coming in for an appointment right after work, please do not feel the need to go home and shower before coming in, as long as you exfoliated really well the night before or morning of your appointment. If you are coming in right after work, just bring a change of clothes and make up remover wipes!
What should I wear during my session?
Women can wear anything you feel the most comfortable in. Please keep in mind the event you are tanning for and what you'll be wearing during that event. Anything you do wear during your session will leave a line. Some women wear, bathing suit, disposable underwear, or nude.
Men, must wear they're bathing suit.
What should I wear after my session?
Bring anything that is easy to put on after, dresses you can step into rather than putting over your head is best. Baggy sweat pants and a baggy shirt are my personal favorite for after tanning attire.
Try to avoid bringing anything in light colors. Dark colors are best!
Will this cover my tan lines?
This is a great questions that comes up often. Depending on the type of tan line and the severity of it will determine your outcome. An airbrush tan will definitely help a whole lot to soften the lines, but you may be able to see your lines a bit after your tan in developed.
What if I had too much sun exposure before my appointment?
This is something very important to take into consideration before scheduling an appointment. If you are in the sun for too long during the days leading up to your appointment, and you start peeling after you have an airbrush tan, it can look worse. Please be very mindful of this before scheduling an appointment. I am happy to do a touch up the next day if this happens, if I am available. I cannot be held responsible if this does happen, as your skin peeling due to previous sun exposure is not related to the results of your airbrush tan.
How long will my airbrush tan last?
With the proper care, your tan will last 7 to 10 days. Please remember if you are on vacation and getting in and out of the pool or oceans, your tan may not last as long. If you are active and working out on a daily basis, you too may notice a shorter life of your tan. It is very important to keep your skin moisturized through out the entire life of your tan for the best fading process. Also, drink a lot of water to help your tan fade very naturally.
Will I turn orange?
No! The faux tanning world has evolved so much that this is not something you should not be worried about! As a trained professional, I will help pick out the best formulation to fit your skin tone. Prepping and after care is very important steps in keeping your tan looking as natural as possible.
If I wait longer to shower will my tan get darker?
You only need to wait 8 hours before your first water only rinse. This solution is done developing after 8 hours, you can shower at 6-7 hours if you would like a little lighter tan. If you tan with the 2 hour rapid rinse, and would like to be darker I recommend waiting closer to 4 hours before rinsing off.
