How long will my spray tan last?
The average life of a spray tan is 7-10 days before significant fading. This is due to your bodies natural skin regeneration cycle. When your body produces "new" skin and the old skin comes off and your tan will come off with it. Following prep and aftercare instructions for your spray tan will assist in the preservation of your tan. When your skin begins it's "shedding" cycle, you can assist the tan removal by exfoliating the dead skin regularly.
DO NOT START EXFOLIATING UNTIL YOU ARE READY FOR THE TAN TO COME OFF!
The average timeline for full tan removal is 10-14 days.
How many days in advance should I do my spray tan before a special event or occasion?
We recommend 1-2 days in advance before any special event to do your spray tan. You want the tan to be fresh however you also want your skin to be fully rinsed and your pores to be clean of any left over bronzer. If your pores are not completely cleaned and rinsed, some bronzer may remain and transfer on to your clothing.
What is the Difference between Express and Standard Solution?
The standard solution has a reommended 8 hour rinse time (can be left overnight but should be rinsed by the 12th hour), the Express can be rinsed anywhere between 1-4 hours depending on color preference desired.
There is no difference in the quality, color, or longevity between the two solutions. ONLY the rinse time and convenience. It is up to client preference what solution is used and the recommendation of your spray tan professional.
What do I wear during my spray tan?
Whatever you're comfortable with! My job is all about making YOU comfortable. The most common is fully nude or with a small pair of underwear, the choice is yours! Keep in mind where the location of your tan lines will be as well as what design they're going to produce afterwards.
Can I go in the pool or ocean with my spray tan?
Yes, you may go in the pool with your spray tan however...chlorine is a bleaching agent and will dry and bleach your spray tan. It will not remove the tan completely however it will cause significant fading. We recommend that you rinse your skin right away and dry off after exiting the pool. Allowing the chlorine or salt water to dry in the sun on your skin will cause drying and cracking of the tan. Ask us about our tan extender lotion!

Will a spray tan fix my tan lines?
Although a spray tan is great for disguising tan lines, it is not a 100% fix. The outcome will largely depend on the difference in skin tones as well as the design on the lines. We will always do our absolute best to give you an even tan, however tan lines can not always be completely disguised.
Can I still get a spray tan if I'm sunburned or peeling?
Sun damage is a spray tans worst enemy. If you have a visible sunburn or have had a sunburn within the last 2 weeks that caused any type of skin damage, you are risking accentuating that area by spray tanning over it. You may book an appointment at your own risk however if during the spray we notice application issues due to sun damage, we will not warranty the outcome of the tan.
