The Do's and Don't of Sunless Spray Tan Prep

SPRAY TANNING TIPS TO FOLLOW

Preparing for your spray tan is the most important part of the spray tan process. Please review Glow and Go Mobile Sun's Tips below to learn how to properly prep for your spray tan! 

     

  • DO EXFOLIATE & SHAVE 48 HOURS BEFORE YOUR SPRAY TAN. Your skin needs 48 hours minimum to heal after exfoliating and to allow your pores to close. If you don't adhere to this then this could result in dotting in the pores or unnatural fading. 
  • DO EXFOLIATE with an exfoliating scrub, such as our Norvell Renewing Sunless Scrub, or an exfoliating mitt to remove the dead skin cells and old spray tan from your skin. 
  • DO NOT WASH with bar soaps, high pH shower products, oil based products or in-shower moisturisers. These products may act as a barrier against your skin and can prevent the fast acting tanning agents to develop. Add salt or sugar to your body wash if you need an in home scrub to exfoliate with.
  • DO HAVE CLEAN, DRY SKIN before you have your spray tan. Keep in mind that too much moisture causes tanning products to slide right off the skin. 
  • DO NOT WEAR PERFUMES, DEODORANTS, LOTIONS, OR MAKE-UP.   
  • DO WEAR YOUR BATHING SUIT or disposable underwear, or have it done naked to avoid any tan lines. Our technicians are professional and do their best to make you feel as safe and relaxed as possible during your session. Men must wear underwear or boxers for their spray tan.  We recommend a dark swimsuit or an old one you wouldn't mind getting discolored.   
  • DO DITCH THE BRA, WATCH, SOCKS, JEWELRY, AND TENNIS SHOES or anything tight fitting. Pull your hair up and off your face and neck.     
  • DO PROVIDE ENOUGH ROOM for the pop-up tent and our spray tan machine. The dimensions are appox. 7ft x5ft and we must have access to two electrical outlets for our machine and extraction fan. A bright room is ideal so you can see how the colour looks as its being applied.
  • DO HAVE DARK, LOOSE CLOTHING to lounge in and sleep in the evening of your spray tan. Some solutions can discolor white materials such as satin or silk.   
  • DO WEAR PROTECTION for your hair, your nose, and eyes.  
  • DO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS given to you by your tan technician. Make sure to rinse off your solution in warm, not hot water.  Make you wait until the time frame given to you by your technician. Our rapid solution can be rinsed off in as little as an hour. Your solution will continue to develop for the next 12 -24 hours even after you've showered.  
  • DO LET YOURSELF AIR DRY or gently pat yourself dry with a towel after rinsing your solution off.  DO NOT RUB because this will cause your tan to fade unevenly and look unnatural.
  • DO NOT SWEAT OR EXERCISE! Avoid any activities that will call you to perspire while your spray tan is developing.     
  • DO ASK QUESTIONS before your session begins. He/she will guide you on how to position yourself to achieve optimal results.

MAINTAINING YOUR SPRAY TAN

15 POST TAN TIPS TO FOLLOW

The secret to longer lasting spray tans is to maintain it properly.  Here are tips on how to MAINTAIN you Glow and Glow Mobile Sun Spray Tan. Maintainance is the key to the longevity of your spray tan!


  • MAKE SURE YOU'RE DRY before dressing. Your tecnician should dry you off and if you're sticky you may have been over over-saturated.     
  • HAVE POWDER APPLIED to your skin to shield against pooling or smearing of the bronzer thats in the solution. Especially under the arms, and in any creases.  
  • REMOVE ANY RESIDUAL SPRAY TAN SOLUTION from your toesnails, fingers, and palms immediatly after your spray tan is complete. 
  • AVOID anything tight or constrictive such as a bra, watch, leggings or tennis shoes. 
  • Flip Flops are ideal.   
  • SHOWER 8-12 hours after the spray tan session unless you've had the Express spray tan in which you'll shower in 1-3 hours. The longer you wait the more chance it has for your formula to develop and intensify the colour.  
  • NEVER USE SCRUBS OR SOAPS when rinsing off the spray tan. These exfoliate the skin and fade the colour of the spray tan. 
  • AVOID LONG, HOT SHOWERS, BATHS, & SCRUBBING the skin. If you use a wash cloth choose one that is as soft as possible. Excessive friction on the skin may fade your tan prematurely.  
  • AVOID CHLORINE!!! Swimming pools and hot tubs can remove or shorten the longevity of your tan. Avoid salt water too!  
  • TAKE CARE when exercising as friction and excess sweat may cause your tan to fade prematurely or unevenly.  
  • USE NORVELL'S SKIN CARE LINE. Norvell's sunless products are specifically designed to increase the longevity of your spray tan and do not stip the color like other products can. Their moisturizer, prolong lotion, & tan extenders, and their ph balanced body wash are highly recommended.
  • AVOID SHAVING/WAXING the day of or after your session. These remove the hair along with the upper surface of the skin. This is why you should shave or wax 48 hours prior to your appointment.   
  • APPLY a light moisturizer after you shower!  When your skin is hydrated and smooth it helps you fade more evenly. Stay away from any lotions that are scented,  contain essential oils, or have any alcohol listed in their ingredients.    
  • AVOID facials, manicures, and pedicures the first couple days after receiving a spray tan. They will cause you to fade prematurely.  
  • STAY Hydrated!  Your skin will love you for it and your tan will too!  
  • Make sure to wear SPF.  Just because your tan doesn't mean you shouldn't cover up.
