Say goodbye to harmful UV rays and hello to a flawless, sun-kissed glow with Nice-Tan Sunless Tanning. Our airbrush spray tan is quick, easy, and completely safe for your skin. Below you will learn how to prepare for a spray tan.
Proper skin preparation is crucial for a flawless spray tan, as it ensures even application, enhances color absorption, and extends the longevity of the tan.
Exfoliating is the most important spray tan prep step. It is not only extremely healthy for your skin in general but it also allows your spray tan to blend into your skin evenly, be absorbed flawlessly, and keep your glow lasting longer. You should exfoliate 24-48 hours before your spray tan at home appointment and make sure to get the driest parts of your body: elbows, knees, ankles, and hands!
Once you are done exfoliating, cleanse your skin with a non oil based product (a gentle soap is great) to take away all the exfoliation residue, leaving your skin fresh and clean. If you are planning on waxing or sugaring, we recommend at least 48 hours before so that your pores have time to close.
We recommend shaving and showering 24 hours before your spray tan . Shaving strips away a layer of skin, making it important to shave hours before your spray tan at home .
The reason we recommend showering 24 hours before is because showering opens up your pores, increasing the likelihood that the spray tanning solution will leave behind freckled spots. If you need to shower closer to your appointment then it needs to be a cold shower.
**Reminder: Make sure you are using a fresh razor for the best results!
Right after you shower, shave, and exfoliate, we recommended that you moisturize your whole body. This will hydrate your skin so that you will get better tanning results (you do not want dry skin).
If you have naturally dry skin, it might be necessary to moisturize again the morning of your tan. If you are curious about if and when you should moisturize, contact us via email or DM on Instagram.
