Pre + Tan
1. Shower, shave*, and exfoliate before your appointment (the day prior) - NEVER right before!! We recommend using our B+G Body Scrub. The key to this step is to not use any oil based products as they are known for leaving a film on the skin's surface.
2. Do not have any lotions/oils/makeup/deodorant on prior to the tan.
2. Do not shower RIGHT before the tan. Your skin should be as dry as possible to produce the most even tan.
Post + Tan
1. Wait at least 8 hours to shower (times may vary).
2. Wear loose fitting clothing for at least 4 hours to prevent discoloration and rubbing.
First Shower + Instructions
1. Take a light, warm shower and rinse.
2. Do not scrub your body.
3. Make sure all of the excess bronzer is washed away. You will know this when your shower water begins to run clear.
4. Pat dry with your towel. (DO NOT RUB!)
5. Apply lots of moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. Apply alcohol free lotion every 4 hours if possible. We recommend our B+G Tan Extender lotion
6. Wear any loose fitting clothing that you don't mind getting dirty. Our favorite example are some old sweat pants and a loose, old t shirt. Please don't wear jeans or tight yogas pants because the fabric is too thick and will cause your tan to absorb into the material.
7. Avoid wearing deodorant - It's called Antiperspirant for a reason, Blocks any transfer of liquid which means you will have white armpit with a tan body (yikes!)
**The tan should last anywhere from 7-10 days depending on how often the clients skin sheds (i.e. shaving, exfoliating, swimming etc.) To maintain your tan on a daily basis, use our B+G Body Wash which will avoid striping away any color from your beautiful tan and our Tan Extender Lotion every other day to prolong the bronze color of your tan!
* SHAVE YOUR BIKINI AREA AFTER YOUR SPRAY TAN. THIS IS BECAUSE THE BIKINI AREA HAIR FOLLICLES TEND TO HOLD A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF SOLUTION DURING THE SPRAY TAN PROCESS, SO TO AVOID ANY DARK LOOKING PORES SHAVE AFTER. DUE TO THE HAIR FOLLICLES HOLDING THE SOLUTION DON’T WORRY WE PROMISE YOUR BIKINI AREA WILL REMAIN TAN EVEN AFTER YOU SHAVE.
