Before your appointment

  • Shower at least 3 hours before the appointment (don’t use dove or any soap that leaves a moisturizing film) 
  • Shower, exfoliate (very important), & shave/wax at least 24 hours before your appointment.
  • Do not use lotion, gel, wax, shaving cream or any other oil based products. 
  • Do not wear makeup, creams/lotion, sunscreen, perfume, or deodorant the day of the appointment, this is very important. 
  • Keep the skin moisturized days prior to the appointment, not the day of the appointment. 
  • Wear loose and dark colored clothes to your appointment, avoid shoes with socks.
  • We offer disposable underwear and you may bring a bikini top, or you may do your session full nude. 
  • If the exfoliation is not done properly & before care instructions are not followed, the results may be uneven and fade quickly. 


  • Avoid sweating or any contact with liquid during development period (ask your artist how long your development period is)
  • Do not apply creams or makeup during this development period. 
  • If you sleep in the solution, wear long clothes and dark sheets.
  • Wait 1-12 to shower depending on your solution. 
  • During your initial shower, do not use soap or any exfoliants, instead rinse the body and face until the water is clear.
  • Pat your skin dry, don’t rub & make sure to moisturize daily. 
  • Avoid excessive sweating, jacuzzis, saunas, taking long hot showers and baths. 
  • Do not wax during the duration of your tan, you may shave delicately.
  • Avoid lotion, soap and body wash containing mineral oil, petroleum, and alcohol. 
  • Do not exfoliate for the duration of the results, once the tan starts to fade you may exfoliate to prep for the next tan!
