If you feel you have highly sensitive skin, or you have any doubts at all, we recommend a small local test spray to check your skin compatibility before your first tanning session.
The Airbrush Tan DOES NOT contain sunscreen so please make sure you apply sunscreen to prevent sunburn when outdoors.
In order to maximize your tanning results, make sure to moisturize your skin at least twice daily. We strongly recommend using our Tahitian Tan Extender Moisturizer for your body and Tahitian Tan Mist for your face and neck. Keeping moisturized will reduce the rate at which your skin exfoliates and ensure an even, flawless fade.
Avoiding long baths, spas and extended swimming sessions will also help prolong the life of your spraytan. And you should, of course, avoid any products that exfoliate your skin. Please also avoid chlorinated jacuzzis, saunas, and steam rooms.
Once your tan is applied you must let it dry completely. Our Airbrush Tanning Specialist will ensure that your application is dry before you leave.
Do not wet your skin for at least 3-5 hours after the tanning session in order to maximize the tanning results.
We recommend showering the following morning for best results.
Do not exercise or perspire heavily between the tanning and showering phase.
When showering, you may notice some brown staining in the water. Don’t worry! This is just some of the bronzer washing off, revealing your tanned skin underneath.
After showering, patting rather than rubbing yourself dry will ensure that your tan lasts longer.
Don't wax after your spraytan until it has completely faded.
PROLONG YOUR TAN
AFTER YOUR TANNING SESSION
The most important step prior to your airbrush tanning session is to thoroughly exfoliate your entire body. We recommend using our Exfoliator the day before your appointment.
For best results, simply place a small amount on an exfoliating glove (or damp wash cloth). Rub firmly over your skin when showering. Pay particular attention to any rough areas like knees, elbows, ankles and the tops of your feet and toes.
BEFORE YOUR TANNING SESSION
DO NOT apply any moisturizer, make-up or perfumes to your skin prior to getting your airbrush tanning session as this will reduce the effectiveness of the procedure. Shave and remove body hair 8-24 hours prior to your tanning appointment. Waxing should be done at least 24 hours prior to getting your spraytan.
Make sure to wear suitable tanning attire to your appointment. We suggest a dark bikini for women and dark underwear or swimming trunks for men. We also recommend that you wear dark, loose fitting clothing after your tanning session. Minor rub off can occur, and while this will easily wash out of most fabrics, some lighter coloured materials (including leather) may stain.
