The day of the spray tan appointment - shower, shave/wax as usual. Exfoliate your skin with a product or a washcloth.
Bare skin - Do NOT use lotion, deodorant, creams, oils, make-up, or any products on your skin before a spray tan. You want your skin to be bare.
Loose clothing - Once you have been sprayed, your skin will feel moist and a little tacky. Drying times can vary. Bring loose fitting clothing to wear after the process.
When to shower again
Showering afterwards - You should wait at least 8 hours before showering. This gives the sunless solution time to develop. It is fine to wait 24 hours before showering after a spray tan. You may see some overage solution wash off of your skin. That is not your tan. Once you shower, lotions and other products can be used.
Tan Care - The spray tan will be at its optimum the first couple of days. There are many factors to consider concerning how long a spray tan will last. With moderate activity, a spray tan can last 10 days or more.
Prolong your tan - Use moisturizer to hydrate skin to prolong your tan.
