How to Prep for & prolong your spray tan.

I would like to properly introduce Professional Airbrush Specialist Mary Longshore. I have known Mary for years and I have been working with her now for about 5 years. She travels to us for our parties and we have the best time! Mary uses Norvell which is a professional company and custom mixes everyone's tan to best suit their needs.

Now lets talk about prepping your self for a flawless tan. Exfoliate before your session to remove dead, dry skin cells. (we recommend a snarky bar that can be purchased at The Color Bar). This allows the bronzing spray to absorb into fresh, clean skin. Skip the lotion and makeup. If you have to wear makeup to work, it's best to have makeup remover wipes to use right before you are sprayed. After undressing for your tan its best to lightly lotion the palms of your hands and bottom of your feet to help naturally keep them lighter.

Tan at the right time. You need to avoid water for at least 4-8 hours after you tan. we recommend the end of the day and sleeping in your tan then showering in the morning. Wear lose-fitting, dark clothing to your session. Just to ensure less staining on your clothes and so you will not rub off your tan before it is set properly.

After care is easy! After 8 hours you can shower using moisturizing products and soft sponges. Soaking in tubs, pools, or any type of water for too long is never a good idea. Make sure after your shower you lotion and stay moisturized and your tan will fade away evenly.
