Before & After Care
BEFORE YOUR TAN
Schedule your appointment 48 hours prior to your special occasion or event.
This will allow your spray tan to settle in and will provide some wiggle room in the
unlikely event that you have any issues with your tan. Spray tans generally require
6-8 hours to ‘set up’ on the skin so you want to give yourself plenty of time before
On the day prior to your tan shave all areas of your body that you normally shave
with a fresh razor and good shaving cream. Shaving on the day of your tan may
leave some skin pores open which will show up as tiny pin points - giving it a day
allows the pores to close after shaving. If you prefer to wax, it is a good idea to do this
2 days prior to your spray tan.
Wash your body thoroughly with a non-moisturizing soap or body wash. Using a loofah glove or body scrub mitt... EXFOLIATE that body! Slough it all off! Pay extra attention to your knees, heels and elbows as this is where we tend to have extra patches of rough skin. After showering DO NOT apply any lotions, deodorants, perfumes or make-up. Your skin can now easily absorb the spray formula that will give you a beautiful tan. If you must wear make-up to go out (most of us prefer to) it can be washed off right before your session.
Wear loose-fitting, dark clothing to your appointment. Anything tight against the skin will act as an abrasive and rub away your tan before it has a chance to set in. Your tan will set in 6-8 hours after your session.
MAKE YOUR TAN LAST!
Always wear loose, dark colored clothing after the initial application while the color is developing on your skin. Avoid wearing tight clothing such as jeans, socks, bra, tights, watch, sneakers etc.
Do not apply moisturizer, deodorant or foundation until after your first shower.
While your spray tan is developing, and before your first shower, avoid any physical exercise, heat or other situations where you may sweat. Also avoid situations where you may potentially get wet as both of these factors can affect the outcome of your spray tan while it is developing. If this does occur, pat the affected area lightly with a clean, dry cloth – usually your tan will be unaffected and just the surface bronzers will appear blemished but the actual result will be indicated after showering.
MOISTURIZE!!!! But avoid any product that contains mineral oil. Be sure to read the label because most lotions contain that yucky paraben! To moisturize, maintain and extend your tan, Bronzed Bunny has a number of products for all your needs. The Bunny's favorite combo is Bunny Bod Tan Extending Lotion, Bunny Face Touch Up spray, and Bunny Bod Tan In A Can. Be sure to ask about Bronzed Bunny Solutions products while you're there!
Avoid chlorinated swimming pools during the life of your spray tan as chlorine will strip the product from your skin.
Always remember to apply a high spectrum SPF sunscreen because although you may look brown after a spray tan, your skin still burns as fiercely as it normally would.
