Q: What should I do before my tan?
A: Exfoliate. This is the number one thing that will help your tan last. In the shower before you have your tan, use an exfoliating mitt or rough flannel with water. Some soaps and exfoliating gels leave a residue which forms a barrier to the tan, so its best just to use water.
Make sure the skin is completely clean with no moisturizer, makeup or deodorant.
Q: Can I shave or Wax before my appointment?
A: Shaving needs to be done at least 12 hours before the tan.
Waxing needs to be done at least 24 hours before the tan.
Q: What should I wear?
A: You can wear whatever you feel comfortable in. If any product gets on your clothing, it washes out. We do have disposable underwear available free of charge.
Q: How long does it take?
A: Allow 30 minutes.
Q: Can I moisturize afterwards?
