Getting flawless spray tan results isn’t just about choosing the right spray tan solution or using the proper technique; it’s also about being prepared for your spray tan service, and knowing what to do afterwards so you don’t sabotage your tan. Follow the steps below and you’ll be on your way to experiencing the best spray tan of your life!


No No's

  1. No deodorants or fragrances/perfumes before your spray tan service
    These will cause a barrier between you and your tan, and can cause the bronzers to turn green

  2. No makeup! Makeup will cause a barrier between you and your tan

  3. Don't use an oil based exfoliate. An exfoliant with oil or aloe in it will leave behind a residue barrier that can interfere with your spray tan

  4. Do not apply anything to your skin after the exfoliation process
    If you apply products after you exfoliate then you’ve just created a barrier between your skin and the spray tan solution.

What To Wear

  1. Do NOT wear tight clothing
    This means: tight socks, boots, belts, gloves, stockings, leggings, skinny jeans

  2. Do NOT wear clothing that will rub when you move
    The more your skin rubs along a surface, the more likely it is that the spray tan solution will rub off, so if your coat rubs your armpits each time you move your arm then you will probably notice some light spots when the tan develops.

  3. Do NOT wear tight necklaces or bracelets, or accessories that rub
    Your spray tan professional will probably have you take them off for your service anyways, but if you put your accessories back on after the tan then they might affect your tan, resulting in poor results.

  4. DO WEAR loose clothing
    Think: sun dresses, skirts, loose fitting pants, looser shirts, shorts

  5. DO WEAR clothing that won’t make you sweat
    Sweating will lighten a tan or, worse, cause it to be streaky or runny, so pay attention to the weather channel when you’re heading out the door!

  6. DO WEAR clothing that covers all of your tan if it’s raining!
    Just like sweat, rain will wreak havoc on a tan, so be sure to wear something that will protect you from the elements if it’s not going to be the best day out

  7. What you wear during your service is totally up to you. You can wear a bathing suit, bra and panties, just panties, or nothing at all!
