Custom Spray Tan FAQs
WHAT ARE MY PREP INSTRUCTIONS?
Shave 24 hours before your appointment (shaving the day of your spray tan may leave some skin pores open, which will show up as tiny pin points). Before you arrive, do not apply lotion after your shower. We also recommend that you NOT use creams, oil-based scrubs or moisturizers on the day of the session. These products could leave residue on your skin and prevent you from achieving an optimal result. You should NOT wear any makeup, deodorant, cream or perfume during your session. Your skin should be clean and dry. Wear or bring dark loose clothing and flip flops.
WHAT CLOTHES SHOULD I WEAR FOR THE SESSION?
While the product is being applied to your skin, you may wear a swimsuit or underwear and/or bra. We strongly advise that you bring dark-colored, loose-fitting clothes that you can change into at the end of your session. We also recommend that you avoid wearing a bra, stockings or any other tight garments immediately after your session.
WHAT ARE MY AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS?
- When you rinse in the shower do not use soap/shampoo until water runs completely clear.
- Moisturize twice a day to keep skin hydrated and prolong your tan
- Avoid long baths, hot tubs, and swimming pools
- No lotions or body wash containing alcohol or mineral oils, they will strip your tan.
MY INTIAL SHOWER AFTER MY SPRAY TAN, I NOTICED THE SOLUTION WAS DRIPPING OFF MY SKIN. WHY?
Our solutions contain bronzers that give you an instant glow, while the remainder of the solution seeps into your skin gradually. These accelerators are temporary and will disappear as you take your first shower following the spray tan session.
IS SPRAY TANNING SAFE FOR PREGNANT WOMEN?
DHA acts only on the top layer of the skin. Kissed blends are non-toxic and there is no evidence that demonstrates the harmfulness of DHA. However, each pregnancy is different and we strongly recommend consulting your doctor before making an appointment.
HOW LONG DO RESULTS LAST?
On average, spray tan results last about 10 days. However, the longevity depends on several factors, which include lifestyle habits, daily activities, and skin routines. Sweating excessively while sleeping or spending time in a jacuzzi or sauna, taking long baths or showers on a daily basis, participating in activities that may cause excessive sweating (ex: spinning class, hot yoga, etc.), exfoliation, hair removal, or even a lack of skin hydration may cause the product to fade away faster. Follow the maintenance tips and instructions given to you by your technician to maximize your results.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A SUNLESS TANNING SESSION COMPARED TO TRADITIONAL TANNING?
Instant glow result!! You avoid all of the harmful effects that could result from UV ray exposure in tanning beds or from the sun itself. In other words, by limiting your exposure to such harmful effects, you are reducing your risk of developing skin cancer and avoiding the premature aging of your skin (wrinkles, pigmentary spots, discoloration, etc.). Spray tanning allows you to enjoy the same results obtained via traditional tanning without exposing yourself to these harmful effects. Our solution is fast, efficient and sustainable.
