WHAT DO I NEED TO DO PRIOR TO MY SPRAY TAN?
Exfoliate 24 hours prior to your spray tan with a basic loofah or wash rag. Also, stay away from any heavy exfoliating oils. After showering DO NOT apply lotions, oils, or perfumes.
Shaving should be done 12 hours before your spray tan. Streaks may be an issue in your final tan if you shave right before due to the wax from the shaving bar.
Manicures, pedicures, and waxing should all be done prior to your spray tan.
Make sure to bring loose fitting clothes with you for after your spray tan.
TIME TO RINSE, WHAT DO I DO?
Absolutely NO soap. A really slow rinse with luke-warm water is best. Only use your hands to remove the bronzer, and focus your attention to your legs, behind your arms, etc. The #1 cause for streaks is that the bronzer was not rinsed off properly and can stain the skin for a few days.
WHAT DO I DO IF I HAVE STREAKS AFTER SHOWERING?
Hop back in the shower and do another rinse. If that doesn’t help, rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab will help remove the streak. Keep in mind that it will also remove the tan in the area you apply it to and you will need to respray if that happens.
WHEN CAN I APPLY LOTION?
Wait 12 hours AFTER your initial rinse before applying any kind of lotion. CeraVe is my favorite lotion. Moisturizing is the key to prolong your spray tan so moisturizing twice daily will give you the best results. It’s also important to stay hydrated and drink lots of water throughout the day.
MY TAN ISN’T DARK ENOUGH AFTER I RINSED, WHAT DO I DO?
Wait 24 hours for it to fully develop after rinsing. If it’s still not dark enough, you can respray over it.
I AM TOO DARK, WHAT DO I DO?
Try rinsing again, soak in a bath tub, or sit in a sauna/jacuzzi. These methods will remove some of the bronzer to lighten the color.
CAN I STILL TAN OUTSIDE?
Yes! The most important thing to remember is that the solution does not contain any UV protection/sunscreen. You will still be able to develop a tan naturally in the sun.
MY SKIN IS PEELING, CAN I STILL GET A SPRAY TAN?
NO! You will be blotchy.
WILL JACUZZIES, POOLS, OR SAUNAS REMOVE MY TAN?
Yes, it will remove majority of the tan and/or lighten it. Seawater, chlorine, and hot tubs can accelerate the fading of the tan. I recommend wearing waterproof sunscreen to help repel the water.
WHAT DO I WEAR DURING MY TANNING SESSION?
Bra/underwear, swimwear, or nude. Whatever you are most comfortable with.
CAN I TAN IF I’M PREGNANT?
DHA is FDA approved and only penetrates the outermost layer of the skin. There is no evidence that DHA is harmful. However, we do recommend that you consult with your physician first.
CAN I TAN IF I JUST HAD SURGERY?
Not unless you are completely healed.
CAN I TAN IF I JUST GOT A TATTOO?
Only if the area is completely healed.
CAN MY TEENAGER TAN?
Only with parent’s consent
I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN, CAN I STILL TAN?
We recommend scheduling a patch test prior to coming in for a full tan.
I HAVE ECZEMA AND/OR PSORIASIS, CAN I STILL TAN?
Normally yes, but a waiver will need to be signed prior to getting spray tanned.
WILL SPRAY TANNING STAIN MY BED SHEETS, CLOTHES, AND/OR DRESS?
Yes, the first few days minimum makeup might minimally rub off on your clothes etc. But, most makeup does rinse off.
HOW DO I BOOK A SPRAY TAN WITH ISABEL?
Please head over to our “booking” section on our website.
I HAVE AN EVENT, WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?
The best time to get sprayed before any event is 2-3 days prior.
HOW SOON AFTER MY SESSION CAN I WORK OUT?
Please wait 16 -24 hours and you should rinse off prior to working out. This will wash away any remaining bronzer – the cosmetic portion of your spray tan.
WILL I LOOK ORANGE AFTER I GET TANNED?
No, you will not appear orange with a Dolce Glow Tan. We use the highest quality solution and guarantee that you will not turn orange.
HOW LONG WILL MY SPRAY TAN LAST?
The length of your tan depends on the maintenance afterwards. Most people notice their tan begin to fade after about 4-7 days. Moisturizing and staying hydrated are two important factors as well.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SPRAY TAN “COLOR” TO CHOOSE?
Our technicians will help you decide on the best solution and/or tone for you the day of your spray tan.
