How it Works

The process for receiving a personalized spray tan in your home or any location of choice is simple and convenient.

 

You contact us to book an appointment, you receive instructions to prepare for the tan, and we come to your door at the scheduled time.

Before your spraytan

  • Shower, exfoliate, and remove body hair 8 to 24 hours before your tanning session.

 

  • Skin should be clean and dry before being sprayed. Don’t apply moisturizer, deodorants, antiperspirants, oils and make up before your appointment.

 

  • Style your hair in a ponytail, away from your face and neck.

 

  • Remove all contact lens and jewelry.

 

  • You will not be able to bath, swim or exercise for at least 6 to 8 hours after being tanned.

 

  • Bring a towel to cover leather or light colored seats, if you’re going somewhere right away.

 

  • If it is raining, bring an umbrella with you!

When we Arrive

 

  • Show us to a room of your choice.  It can be any room – some people choose a bathroom or the kitchen.
     

  • There should be a clearing of approximately 4’ x 4’ where the pop up tent can be set up.  The tent is about 7’ tall and is a similar shape to a large telephone booth.
     

  • During setup, you change into your bathing suit or tanning outfit of choice. Keep in mind that what you wear will affect the look of your tan lines. You may undress completely if you prefer no tan lines at all!  It is best to wear dark colours during your tan and to change into dark loose clothing afterwards.
     

  • Put on your shower cap and blocking cream on the palms of your hands and over the tips of your nails and both hands and feet.
     

  • You will be sprayed with a fine, cool mist.  The airbrush technique allows for even coverage that appears flawless.
     

  • You will be walked through the positions and we will tell you when to turn around, turn your head, close your eyes, etc.
     

  • Once the tan has been applied, your skin will be blow dried to help the drying process of the solution so that you can change into your loose fitting, dark clothes quicker.  You will also receive after-care instructions to get the best out of your tan.

After your tan

 

  • Wear dark loose clothing while tan develops
     

  • Don't get water on yourself
     

  • Don't touch your skin with hands (wear socks on hands to bed)

 

  • Don't exercise, swim, or bath for 8-12 hours

 

  • After 8-12 hours, you may shower normally

 

  • Wash with mild shower gel

 

  • Pat, don't rub skin dry
     

  • Moisturize twice daily, use tan extender  "Oh So Organic" tan extender
     

  • Avoid exfoliating

 

** If you have any questions please contact your technician **

Do's & Don'ts

  • If you plan on Waxing or hair removal treatments, do this one day prior to tan. Waxing can cause patchiness.

  • Avoid using the following products, as they can lighten or make tan uneven:

  • AHA products (alpha hydroxy acids)

  • Anti-acne products that exfoliate and dry skin (antibiotics)

  • Anti-aging products that "renew" the skin

  • Band-Aids

  • Bar soaps

  • BHA products (beta hydroxy acids)

  • Body hair bleach products

  • Bug spray, perfumes, body sprays when applied directly to the skin (instead spray clothing)

  • Curel Lotion

  • Dove products will fade tan faster

  • Facial masks and exfoliating scrubs

  • Hair inhibiting lotions

  • Eye make up removers

 

  • In winter, Aveeno moisturizer recommended

  • Pat dry in the shower don't rub

  • Always use a new, sharp razor when shaving

  • A women's tan may develop different during various hormonal changes (menstruation, ovulation, pregnancy)

Did You Know...

                  Melanoma is increasing faster in females 15-29 years old than males in the same age group. In females 15-29 years old, the torso is the most common location for developing melanoma, which might be due to high-risk tanning behaviors.

 

                  Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States — more than one million new cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed in 2010. The incidence of malignant melanoma, one of the deadliest forms of skin cancer, has more than doubled between 1973 and 1996. Melanoma is more common than any non-skin cancer among people between 25 and 29 years old.

 

                  Basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas are the two most common forms of skin cancer, but are easily treated if detected early. The incidence of melanoma has been steadily increasing for the past 30 years. Since 1992, melanoma has increased 3.1 percent annually in non-Hispanic Caucasians, but in recent years it is increasing more rapidly in young white women (3.8 percent since 1995) and men age 65 and older.

 

                  The two types of ultraviolet radiation are Ultraviolet A (UVA) and Ultraviolet B (UVB). UVB has long been associated with sunburn and UVA has been recognized as a deeper-penetrating radiation that causes more damage.
