Frequently Asked Questions
Will a spray tan protect me from getting a sunburn?
No! Your skin can still burn with a spray tan, so when going into the sun, you must wear sun protection — at least SPF 30 or higher!
How long will the tan last?
If you follow our tanning tips above, your tan should last approximately 7 days! Just be sure to use plenty of moisturizer, drink tons of water and avoid harsh soaps in the shower.
What if I have very fair skin that has never been able to tan?
We’re meant to be! This is exactly why the spray tanning process was designed in the first place—for people who can’t tan using other methods. And we’re willing to bet you’ll get an unbelievable glow with a spray tan. Of course, people who tan easily will get great color, too! So, basically everyone wins when it comes to spray tanning.
Can pregnant women get sprayed?
Yes, but always contact your family physician.
How many times per week should I spray tan?
No more than three times in a two-week period. You want to give your skin time to fade out evenly. When color is sprayed over spots that are darker than others, it gives an unpleasant look of built up color in certain areas. For this reason, you’ll want to gently exfoliate the skin before your next session for a fresh canvas result!
How brown will I get?
Everyone’s skin develops its own individual color. Some people get very brown, while others get a little glow.
How soon after the spray tan can I shower?
Depending on what kind of solution you use, we recommend waiting at least 8-10 hours—this is the minimum. A spray tan develops for up to 24 hours, with the last few hours having the least impact on development. In other words, the longer you wait, the better! In a hurry? Ask about our rapid tan!
Will the spray tan come off on my clothes?
You might see a little bit of cosmetic bronzer, which is water soluble. But don’t fret, it’ll wash out! However, please use caution if wearing or sleeping on silk or satin.
How can clients prevent skin from looking uneven while fading?
Keeping up with the proper maintenance is key to a long-lasting tan. In addition, we highly recommend using our tan extender, along with the proper moisturizer. Infused with a hint of DHA, this life-changing moisturizer adds a little extra color, ensuring the length of your tan!
