Q: When can I rinse off after my tan?
A: 8 hours for a Classic Tan OR 2-5 hours for a Rapid Tan.
Q: What do I do when its time for my first rinse?
A: Rinse for 2-3 minutes gently using your hands to help remove all bronzer from the skin. Do not use any soap on your first rinse. Make sure you are not using hot water. Warm water is best. After you do not see any more bronzer coming off your body, you can get out. pat dry, and moisturize. Deodorant and make-up can be applied as usual.
Q: How long will my tan last?
A: Although the longevity of your tan is determined based on how well you prepped and care for your tan post spray, you can expect 7-12 days of color.
Q: How do I care for my tan after I get sprayed?
A: Stay hydrated. Moisturize 2-3x/day with a lotion that is free of mineral oil, parabens, and sulfates. We recommend Hempz Triple Moisture. Do not over shower. Use a tan extender to help prolong your tan. You can purchase both hempz and extender in our salon at the time of your appointment . Avoid hot tubs and pools.
Q: Can I get in the ocean or pool or hot tub?
A: Yes, but keep in mind it will accelerate the fading of your tan. To help combat premature fading, use waterproof sunscreen as your protective barrier. Take short swims. Once you get out of the water if you have access to a fresh water shower rinse off any chlorine or salt water that is left on your skin. After you're done with water activities for the day apply your tan extender to deposit color back that may have faded during your water activities.
Q: Can I shave after I get sprayed?
A: This is why we ask you to remove all hair prior to getting sprayed, but in the case you need to shave your legs. Use a new razor with 1-2 blades with no moisture strip. We recommend the cheap disposable ones. Do not use shaving cream. Instead use sunless safe body wash and gently shave with light pressure. You can shave your underarms as usual. Sunless safe body wash is available in salon.
Q: Can I still burn with a spray tan?
A: YES, spray tans do not contain any SPF. Please wear sunscreen to protect your skin. Avoid aerosol sunscreen due to the high alcohol content. We recommend Sun Bum's waterproof lotion sunscreen and we carry South Seas Sport Lotion in salon for your convenience.
Q: I have a sunburn, can I get a spray tan?
A: NO, NO, NO! Please do not book a spray tan appointment if you currently have a sunburn or you have burned in the last 6 weeks. Your skin needs to heal. Applying spray tan solution will only accelerate your peeling and give you less than desirable results. If you come in with a sunburn, you risk the chance of being turned away and will not receive your deposit back. Trust us, you do not want to spray tan over a burn.

A: 24 hours after your first shower.
