sunless TAN TIPS

Sunless tanning is a delicate science that requires preparation and post care to uphold a seamless natural radiance throughout the duration of the tan.

Take care of any hair removal at least 24 hours before, this includes shaving, waxing or plucking. Be sure to exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells. A fresh canvas ensures your tan will develop and fade evenly.

ALL other beauty services should take place before you tan. This includes mani/pedi, lashes, brows and hair. It is recommended to wait at least one week after getting injectables or laser services.

Shower off all lotions and oils 2 hours before your appointment. Do not reapply any moisturizers, deodorant or make up.

Totally up to you! We just ask that you undress to your comfort level, so you decide what’s coming off and what’s not! Any clothing you choose to wear during the session (undergarments/bathing suit) can simply be laundered once in a normal cycle to remove the solution.


Our mobile stylist will begin your appointment with a quick color consultation to determine the perfect solution for your skin tone, based on your personal preference and skin type.  While we set up, feel free to ask us any questions. Once we're ready, you'll be asked to undress as much as you are comfortable. We will prep you and then begin the tan.

A total body transformation takes only 30 -45minutes!

With proper care your tan should last 7-10 days.

We recommend tanning two days before any special event, film/photo shoot or travel.

After the tan application wear loose dark clothing


Your first shower is a RINSE with NO SOAP. Pat your self dry and if you must, lightly moisturize.

Keep your showers light only using soap in the pit and groin areas. Use a gentle facial cleanser and avoid strong actives like retinoids. Drink water and moisturize your skin daily.
