For the very best looking spray tan result, it is important to follow the correct prep steps before and after your Tan.
First, make sure you have washed your hair (if it needs washing in the next 1-2 days). You don’t want to be washing your hair in the same rinse off session after your tan. This may cause streaks down your back and legs.
Helpful hint: If you use a high silicone Conditioner, ensure you wash your back and legs well with soap after your have rinsed your hair. The Silicone can leave a film on your skin, and this film will prevent the tan from working - meaning streaky lines.
Hair Removal! You don't want to be shaving or waxing after your tan. As the tan is on the superficial layers of your skin, shaving will removal a layer of tan as well as your hair. Waxing should be done 24 hours prior to your tan appointment. The pores in your skin will still be open which will cause the tan solution to sit in them, causing dark spots. Come in with no deodorant or moisturiser on your skin and it's best to remove makeup although not necessary. Finally, remember to bring in loose dark clothing for afterwards. Tight clothes not only will feel awful but may rub against your skin.
