Q. Since you come to me, what do I need to provide for you?
Great question! I need a room with good light and accessibility to an electrical outlet .
Q. How does this work?
All my equipment is portable. I have a sheet I bring , (No tent!!! They
cause shadowing) similar to a portrait studio's backing so you can step
right on it, covering the area. If needed I have an exhaust fan.
Q. How long does the full process take?
The full single appointment is approx 45 -60 minutes . The consultation is
usually 5 minutes. Set up 5-10 min It takes approx 10 -15 minutes for a
full body spray tan. Drying 15 minutes .
Parties approx 30-45 minutes per client
NOTE: BE PREPARED TO GIVE AMPLE DRYING TIME OF 15 MINUTES BEFORE
DRESSING. PLEASE WEAR DARK COLORED LOOSE CLOTHING. ANY TIGHT CLOTHING
OR HARSH FABRICS TOO TIGHT WILL ABSORB YOUR SOLUTION, NOT YOUR SKIN ***
Q. How should I prepare for my Tan?
It is imperative that you exfoliate your skin the day before or even
for a few days leading up to the Spray Tan. Do any waxing or shaving 24
hours before and remember..No oils, lotions,
perfumes, deodorant the day of the tan. Anything you put on your skin
will cause a barrier , your skin will not absorb the solution!!!!
Q. How long until my tan develops?
You will see instant color due to a cosmetic bronzer. The actual tan
will take from 6-8 hours to fully develop, so do NOT shower or get wet
until that time as you will risk washing off the spray tan! When you
finally shower you will see color washing off. Do not be alarmed as that
is just the cosmetic bronzer that is washing off. You will have a
beautiful tan underneath.
NOTE: FOR BEST RESULTS DURING YOUR SESSION, PLEASE DO NOT MOVE AROUND
UNLESS DIRECTED . THIS CAN AFFECT THE THE ABILITY TO APPLY THE SOLUTION
EVENLY WHICH CAN RESULT IN UNEVENNESS ***
Q. Is spray tanning safe?
Yes. The active ingredient DHA is approved by the FDA . It is the same
ingredient that has been approved in every sunless tanner on the market
Q. What is the active ingredient?
(Dihydroxyacetone) is often derived by plant sources such as sugar
beets and sugar cane and by the fermentation of glycerin. The DHA reacts
with the amino acids in the dead layers of the skin. The DHA combines
with the amino acids to form brown colored melanoids. It is not absorbed
into the body and it is non-toxic.
Q. How long after do I have to wait to exercise?
Do not exercise or do anything that will make your sweat. Refrain from
ANY skin to skin contact until you have showered. If you do not follow
this you will be preventing the tan from fully developing which can
result in patches and streaking.
Q. Can I get a spray tan if I have sensitive skin?
The tanning solution is good for most sensitive skin types however
those with severe asthma or very sensitive skin refrain from spray
tanning .Always consult a doctor with any questions.
Q. Can I Spray Tan if I am pregnant?
Most people are suitable to have a spray tan. We suggest that pregnant
women consult with a doctor prior to scheduling an appointment.
Q. How often should I moisturize after a spray tan?
Moisturizing is a crucial part of a Post spray tan!! Do not moisturize
until AFTER you take your first shower. Post spray tan you must
moisturize at least 2x per day .. The more you moisturize will delay
natural exfoliation which will prolong your tan. If you don't, your skin
will get dry and your tan will fade quickly. Moisturizing also helps
the tan fade evenly. You really need to check ALL the ingredients. I
recommend using a lotion made specifically for spray tanning
Q. Do I still need sunscreen after being spray tanned?
A. YES!! there is no SPF protection from a spray tan. You will not be protected against UV rays and will still burn.
Q. I always burn in the sun and never tan. Can I still get a sunless tan?
Absolutely! If you are someone who always burns in the sun has never
been able to tan, you can achieve a sunless tan. You would be sprayed
with a natural looking solution.
Q. How long will my Spray Tan last?
It will last anywhere from 5-9 days. depend on how you follow post tan
instructions and moisturizing. Remember a spray tan is on the outer
layer of the skin, so anything you do to cause exfoliation will fade the
tan quicker. It is imperative that you moisturize at least 2x a day and
avoid hot baths, pools and hot tubs
Q. Can I shave or wax?
Yes, Before or after your first shower after your tanning session, If
any sooner the wax or cream will provide a barrier against the skin
preventing the solution from being absorbed.
Q. What do I need to wear?
Wear a dark colored swimsuit or undergarments. The tanning solution
will wash out but in some cases might stain light colored garments. You
can wear as much or as little as you are comfortable with. After the
spray tan session wear something loose fitting, no bras or tight pants
as it will cause the spray tan to smear and develop uneven. If you choose to sleep in your spray tan so that it
darkens overnight, please cover your bed with dark sheets and pillow
cases so that it does not stain your regular sheets.Everyone must wear an undergarment of some type ( no exceptions) during there spray tan.
Q. Will I experience allergic reactions or acne with your products?
The solution we use is hypoallergenic-designed specifically for
hypersensitive skin. it is oil free, alcohol and Fragrance free with
minimal ingredients unlike other spray tan solutions. If you have known
allergies to sunless tanning please consult with a physician.
Q. Wake do you accept for payment?
A. We accept Cash and Checks , We do not accept Credit card/Debit card
note: If you do choose to apply any products there is a possibility of
a chemical reaction in that area as well as your skin may not absorb the solution!!!!
