Preparing for Sunless Tanning

Pre and post care by the tanner can help maximize the results of your spray tan.


If you have a sensitive skin condition, please notify the technician before the spray tanning application.

Exfoliate your entire body with a non-oil based exfoliant prior to your tanning session. Pay extra attention to any rough patches including elbows and knees. If you do not have a body exfoliant you may use a washcloth and brown sugar to exfoliate your skin. Exfoliating the skin will remove dead skin cells and result in a longer lasting spray tan.

Facials, Waxing and shaving should be done at least one day prior to you spray tan.

Remove any makeup, deodorant or lotion prior to tanning. They will act as barriers to the sunless solution causing an uneven result.

Remove all jewelry prior to you tanning session.

It is very important to have clean, dry and exfoliated skin for your spray tanning appointment. Do not use a body wash or soap that contains moisturizing ingredients. Any residue left on the skin may act as a barrier making the tan less effective.

Be sure to wear dark or black loose fitting clothing and preferably flip flops. Any tight fitting clothing or undergarments will rub the solution off your skin resulting in splotches. Loose fitting dresses are generally the best way to go.
