DAY OF YOUR TAN
Remove makeup, moisturizer, perfume, and deodorant before your spray tan application. Men; please wear boxers, shorts or briefs during your spray tan appointment. Ladies; you may wear whatever you feel comfortable in or you can choose to wear nothing at all! Please bring flip flops, dark loose fitting pants and a dark long sleeve shirt to wear immediately after your spray tan application - this will help in avoiding skin to skin contact and will protect your tan as it develops.
Please avoid touching your skin, contact with water, exercise, tight clothing/shoes, and rubbing your freshly sprayed tan until your warm water rinse.
You will use warm water only to rinse off solution 2-8 hours after your spray tan application. The exact number of hours will be determined by your spray tan specialist.
Use your hands wile warm water rinsing to remove the solution from your skin. You will see the color wash off which is completely normal.
DO NOT wash your hair during the warm water rinse as the shampoo could interfere with the development of your tan.
Pat dry after you rinse.
Do not apply any lotions to the skin as the tan is still developing.
Shaving should be avoided for 24 hours after your spray tan application.
You may take a shower using spray tan safe shampoo, body wash/products 8-12 hours after your warm water rinse.
Apply spray tan safe lotion/oil to the skin after your shower.
Pat dry after you shower.
Your spray tan takes a total of 24 hours to fully develop and cure.
Moisturize every morning and night with spray tan approved lotion/oils. Ask about our tan extender & mousse to boost your GLOW!
Using a new razor is best when shaving. Avoid using shaving cream.
Avoid scrubbing the skin, long hot baths/showers, saltwater, and swimming pools/hot tubs as these speed up the exfoliation process.
Pat dry your skin after you bathe or shower.
Properly prepping the skin for your spray tan is very important! Using the wrong products on your skin prior to your tan can adversely affect your results. Using the wrong products on your skin while you have your Glow can change the color of the tan and make it fade faster. Please be sure to contact us with any questions if you are unsure if your products are spray tan safe.
If you are sunburned or have an old sunburn, your spray tan could make your sunburned skin appear darker than the rest of your body. Even if you can't see the sunburn, a spray tan might bring it out!
pH levels are extremely important when it comes to spray tan development. Alcohol, exercise, foods/drinks, medication, showering too close to your appointment, certain products used on the skin and hormones can affect the pH level of your skin! The more alkaline (higher pH) your skin is, the greater the chance of having an unnatural outcome and your spray tan could over process. The more acidic (lower pH) your skin is, the lighter the tan will be. Coronado Glow can test the pH level of your skin to help determine the best solution for your skin!
A woman's menstrual cycle can directly affect a spray tan and could cause it to become blotchy or not develop as dark as normal.
Oily skin types usually develop lighter and may require an extra spray after 24-48 hours to get your base color.
With proper prep & after care, your beautiful GLOW will last 7-10 days!
If your tan becomes "patchy" as it begins to fade, just use a washcloth to blend it!
To remove your old spray tan, you can purchase a tan removal mousse & mitt from Coronado Glow!!
