Before: Spray Tanning Skin Care To ensure you get the best tan possible follow these steps:
Take a shower as normal and be careful to rinse off ALL of the shampoo and soap; also don't apply any deodorant, moisturizer, lotion, cream, or makeup before your spray tan.
Exfoliate with an oil-free product! This is the single most important aspect of your before appointment regimen. By exfoliating, you are turning your skin into a clean slate for your spray tan artist. Properly exfoliating with an oil-free product can increase the life of your tan by up to three days!
What to wear to your Appointment: Aviva Lab's solutions are oil-free, which means they will not stain your clothes, bedsheets, or your couch; however, we do suggest that your wear dark, loose clothing so that your clothing doesn't rub against the spray tan while setting.
No Diving! Do not go swimming or work out during the 8 hours that your tan is setting to ensure that the tan is given enough time to properly develop.
For your first shower: rinse only! soaps and shampoos can lessen the quality of your spray tan.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize! A spray tan's worst enemy is dry skin; a spray tan's best friend is a fantastic moisturizer with DHA infused into the formula. By using moisturizers on a daily basis (and after every shower!), your skin will stay soft, supple, and most importantly tanned for days longer!
