Spray Tan Tips

Spray Tan Tips

  • Use a cotton washcloth to gently exfoliate your skin
  • Shave & any spa services prior to your spray tan
  • NO moisturizer the day of your spray tan – before or after
  • Wear old undergarments to tan in (anything from granny panties to a g-string is fine)
  • Wear loose, dark slip on clothes & shoes – NO TIGHT CLOTHES to your appointment
  • Consider a strapless bra for your appointment if appropriate
  • Stay dry for 12 hours for the maximum benefits
  • Use Sulfate Free product to shower (Norvell Cleanser Recommended)
  • Take short, warm showers and pat skin dry (don’t rub)
  • Moisturize AT LEAST every other day starting after your first shower, post spray tan
  • TWK Self-Tanner & Anti-Aging Retail Spray – post spray tan – provides best results for extending the life of your colour
  • Spray perfume and cologne on clothing or the back of your hairline – NOT directly on skin (because it’s got alcohol in it and will dry out the area sprayed – i.e. it will look dirty/blotchy)
  • Sports active people will benefit from powder in socks, sports bras, shin guards, etc.
  • Keep hydrated and drink plenty of water to help your spray tan fade
  • Remember that a spray tan is ‘paint’ on your skin, so choose activity wisely
