Organic Airbush Tanning
What to do before, during, and after your organic airbrush appointment at Sugar Lips Inc.
The Day Before Your Appointment
SHOWER & EXFOLIATE
Shower and exfoliate your face and body. Ideally, this should be done a minimum of 6 hours before your spray tan. We suggest using a loofah or a dry brush.
For best results, please sugar, wax or shave at least one day before your spray tanning session.
SKIP THE MOISTURIZER
It is best to not use oil-based exfoliates or lotions prior as they can block the tanning process, leaving a residue between your skin and the tanning solution.
The day of your appointment and what to expect
WEAR DARK CLOTHING
Wear dark loose fitting clothing after the session if possible. It is best not to wear white for your spray tanning session.
CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING
Tan Lines… do you want them and where? During the tanning process, you may choose to have no tanlines by being nude for your appointment. We deal in bodies day in and out so its nothing we haven’t seen! If you choose to have tan lines from a top and/or bottom, please wear dark items on these areas remembering that any area covered will not be tanned.
Your palms, feet, lips, cuticles, and elbows will be carefully prepped with organic barrier lotions and oils to prevent any unnatural colouring. As you are being spray tanned, you’ll be instructe
After your appointment
DON’T GET WET (NOT EVEN SWEAT)
For the first 12 hours after your spray tan avoid any activity that would result in getting wet or sweaty. No working out, no dishes, no moisture!
WEAR DARK PYJAMAS
Wear loose, dark clothing to bed. The bronzer may rub off on your bedding and clothing, however, nothing will stain. Maximum spray tan results can be expected when you let your tan develop for a full 24 hours
DO NOT SHOWER
Do not shower for at least 12 hours. During this time scrub your palms only when washing your hands. Do not rest your fingertips on your face or body, and limit skin-to-skin physical contact with others to avoid colour transfer.
USE A SAFE BODY WASH
Avoid soaps and body washes containing drying ingredients like fragrance and alcohol.
DONT SPRAY ON SKIN
Spray perfumes, bug sprays, etc on your clothing instead of directly on your skin.
MOISTURIZE YOUR SKIN
Moisturize twice a day with a alcohol-free, paraben-free lotion. Use SunnaTan skin care products to help extend the life of your spray tan.
USE SUN SCREEN
Your spray tan tan does not protect you from the sun. Please use an alcohol-free sunscreen.
USE TAN EXTENDORS
Use SunnaTan easy to use sunless tanning extenders to prolong the length of your tan, or use them on their own for a DIY glow.
TAN FADING? EXFOLIATE!
When your tan is beginning to fade, use our SunnaTan Exfoliating Mitt to help even out your skin tone and prep for your next airbrush tan.
