Proper preparation will result in a more uniform, longer lasting tan. Follow these tips for satisfying results.

  • Shave and exfoliate at least 2 hours prior to session, allowing time for your skin to restore its natural pH level. For exfoliating, we recommend using a non oil based product as that will create a barrier. If you exfoliate or shave immediately prior to your appointment, rinse with Dewdrops Shower & Bath Gel to restore skin’s pH level.
  • Keep skin clean! Do not apply moisturizers, deodorants, anti-perspirants, oils or makeup before your tanning appointment - they will affect tan development by acting as a barrier.
  • If necessary, style hair in a hairclip and/or pony tail so it will be off your face and neck. Remove contact lenses and jewelry before being sprayed.
  • What you wear during your session is your choice. We understand that every Client’s comfort level is different. Tan lines are optional for female Clients. Please see “Salon Etiquette” or speak to a Technician for our policy on Clients under 18 years old. For the comfort of our Technicians we ask that male Clients wear bottoms of their choice. Avoid light coloured garments during spray session.
  • Wear dark, loose, easily cleaned clothing to wear home after your session. Avoid garments that contain nylon, lycra, silk or wool (during or after appointment) as these fabrics may stain. Wear loose fitting shoes (sandals or slip-on shoes).
  • You must not get your skin wet for 10 – 12 hours following your sunless application. You will not be able to swim, shower, bathe or exercise (excessive sweating), so plan accordingly. If it is raining or snowing bring an umbrella.
