2 Weeks Prior to Your Tan

Exfoliate & Moisturize
Spend the week or two prior to your competition spray appointment exfoliating and moisturizing your body.  Pay extra close attention to your elbows, knees, chest, ankles and wrists. A regular loofa or exfoliating pad works great.

* All waxing completed at least 72 hours prior, if you're accustomed to waxing. Otherwise, wax 7 - 10 days before your spray tan appointment.

Day Before Your Tan

Please shave at least 8 hours before your spray tan, preferably the night before.  Make sure you shave your whole body, including the downy hair on your back and stomach. 


Avoid massages because massage oil will interfere with the tan.

Day of Your Tan

*The DAY OF your spray tan, DO NOT Moisturize but you must EXFOLIATE.

*Do Not Use Any Bar Soaps or other commercially made scrubs.

*DO NOT put on any make-up, deodorant, perfume/cologne before or after your spray tan application. These products will raise the skin's ph and turn your armpits and body green!
