What do I wear?
Essentially this is a decision of the client. During your spray tan you can wear an old bathing suit or undergarments. When the solution is sprayed directly on clothes, it may cause staining. Some clients, in effort to avoid tan lines, prefer to go without. The day of your spray tan we recommend wearing dark loose fitting clothing. Preferably a v-neck shirt with sweat pants and flip flops or sandals (weather permitting). Special precautions should be taken on the day of your spray tan if there is a chance of rain.
How long do I have to wait to shower?
After your spray tan, wait at least eight hours before showering, moisturizing and doing any activates that will result in perspiring.
How long does the tan last?
About 5- 7 days. Depending on what type of skin you have (dry skin, oily skin) this will be a factor in how long the color will last. Also another variable with how long color last is your daily activities.
How should I prepare for my spray tan?
You should take a shower, shave and exfoliate (using a face cloth, sponge or scrub with soap) immediately prior to your appointment. Clients should not come straight from school or work. Natural oils and sweat will be on your skin from the course of the day - along with products generally put on for everyday use (i.e. - deodorant, perfume, moisturizer etc). In order to get the best results possible, your skin should be clean, product free and dry.
How to prepare before you come in for your Versa Spa Spray Tan:
Exfoliate immediately prior to your appointment. Using a face cloth or a sponge with soap (preferably with beads) and wash entire body – pay particular attention to underarms and creases (i.e. neck, behind knees, and elbows). Please note that we ask clients to exfoliate immediately prior to their appointment to ensure the best results. Remember that if you exfoliate in the morning and then put on everyday used products like deodorant, perfume, make up, moisturizer in addition to sweats and oils accumulating over the course of the day while at work or school – this will potentially hinder the solution from being absorbed into your skin.
Remember, not to put anything on your skin prior to your spray tan session. Deodorant, moisturizers, perfume/cologne, make-up and hair conditioner should be avoided during your shower prior to your spray tan to avoid any uneven spots where they have come in contact with your skin.
Plan ahead! You will be unable to shower for 8 hours after your spray tan. Also, please refrain from doing any physical activities that will make you perspire.
Tie back hair with an elastic band. Also, using a head band to secure bangs or loose hair will help in being able to fade the color into your hair line to ensure a natural, great looking tan.
Remove all jewelry.
Wear loose fitting clothing to the salon (i.e. – v-neck, tank top, baggy pants, sweat pants or shorts). Also, avoid wearing socks – flip flops or sandals are typically a better choice. Dress or take precautions to avoid rain after your spray tan.
