Frequently Asked Questions

As I am getting my website up and running, I have been getting a lot of questions regarding my tanning procedures. Here is a helpful FAQ, which will also be posted on my website soon! Keep checking back for more details!
Questions Anyone?

How should I prep for my tan?

Prepping for your spray tan is easy! All you have to do before your appointment is shower, exfoliate & shave. Or to make it even easier, we can wax you before your tan. Just no moisturizers!

Will I look orange?

No! In the past, self-tanners did give many people an unnatural orange glow. Most of these undesirable results were caused by improper or ineffective application. Applying cremes and lotions by hand (with drugstore products) usually results in excessive amounts of tanner being absorbed into the skin. Unnatural dark spots may also appear in dry or thick skin areas such as elbows, knees, and knuckles because they have a tendency to absorb more of the creme or lotion. But this is not the case with a spray tan! You will get an even distribution of the solution, with no unnatural absorption. Your tan will come out even and natural everytime!

How long will the tan last?

Since everybody has different skin types, there is no set number of days for how long your spray tan can last. But most clients report their tan lasting about 7-10 days.

How long should  I wait to shower?

At least 4-6 hours, but you can wait as long as you would like!

What are the primary components in your spray tanning solution?

My spray tanning solution has three primary components: bronzer, DHA, and aloe vera. All of this combined with my experience in spray tanning gives you the most natural spray tan out there.

What is DHA?

The DHA (dihydroxyacetone) is the component that creates the longer-term tanning effect. DHA is a safe, simple molecule that has been used in food and cosmetics for years. When applied to the skin, DHA reacts with the proteins and amino acids in the skin's superficial layer to form a golden brown color. It will begin to darken 2 to 3 hours after application, but it reaches its peak color within 24 hours. The DHA color and intensity will be very close to that produced initially by the bronzer.

What should I wear while tanning?

Many people don't wear anything while being tanned. However, if you do wear a bathing suit, underwear, or anything else, please be aware that whatever you wear may become stained. The bronzer used for your initial color is water-soluble and should wash out of anything you wear, but the DHA contained in the solution may cause permanent stains on any clothing you wear.
