Wax + Shave

Waxing should be completed at least 48 hours prior to your appointment and shaving should be completed with a razor that lacks a moisture strip.

 

Exfoliate

Stray away from a body scrub/loofah combo as most are oil-based and will leave a residue. Instead, use an exfoliating mitt.

 

Spa Treatments

Tanning should always be the last beauty treatment completed due to the barriers that spa treatment products can create. Complete all facials and massages the day prior.

 

No Barriers

Forgo any lotions, oils, deodorant, perfumes or makeup the day of your appointment. All of these can create a barrier on the skin that the tan will not adhere to.

Clothing

Wear dark, loose-fitting clothing with open-toed sandals. Please note that the bronzer in solution may transfer to your items, but is water soluble and should wash out.

Mani + Pedi

Complete manicures + pedicures the day prior. If completed day of tan, please forgo any oils/lotions that your nail technician may apply. If done after your tan, your color could become uneven due to soaking, acetone, oils, etc.

Showering

Bar soaps and cream based body washes (like Dove) are known to leave a residue that can create a barrier on the

skin which can prevent your tan from applying smoothly. Any gel-based body wash is best. Showering should be done at least 4 hours prior to tanning to allow your pH levels to neutralize. If you must shower within 4 hours, run cold water at the end of your shower.
