TANNING TIPS

HOW TO PREPARE FOR AN AIRBRUSH TAN:

  • Get your nails done before appointment
  • Get your hair done before appointment
    • Not recommended to have a hair appointment the day after an air tan
  • Shower 12 hours before
    • Some shower right before
  • Wash your hair 12 hours before
    • Some do right before
  • If you shave, shave 12 hours before
    • Some shave right before but this is the only one I highly recommend doing 12 hours before
  • Exfoliate your body after you shave getting all the dead skin off your body
  • Do not use dove soap
  • Do not use bars of soap before or when you have your air tan due to streaking
  • Do not wear any lotion on your body or face the day of your tan
  • Do not wear any make up if you are going to tan your face
    • We can always use wipes to take it off
  • Do not wear deodorant the day of your air tan
  • Wear loose, black clothing to appointment or bring them to wear after you get tanned

WHAT TO DO AFTER YOUR TAN AND HOW TO MAKE IT LAST AS LONG AS POSSIBLE :

  • Rinse off when instructed by your technician
  • The first rinse after your tan will be a quick, light warm rinse of your body to get the bronzing part of the solution off
    • Ask your technician why this is so important
  • Wait to have a traditional shower 24 hours after your tan
  • Do not wash your hair for at least 24 hours after your tan
    • The conditioner is likely to run down your legs, streaking your tan
  • Do not shave every day as shaving will remove some of the tan
    •  Shave only when necessary
  • Keep your tan hydrated with lotions
    • Vani-T and/or Norvell offer good products
    • Ask your technician for recommendations as after care is a very important part of maintaining your tan
  • Use body shampoos to keep hydrated
    • Vani-T’s Body Shower shampoo is a very good product
  • Do not go into a chlorinated pool or hot tub for at least 24 hours after your air tan has been applied
    • The hydro firm post-sunless moisturizing spray is highly recommended as an add-on (see services) if you are going into be in chlorine
  • Do not exfoliate until you are preparing for your next air tan

HELP! I’VE WASHED OFF MY TAN!

Tips Tricks by Adore
First of all, you have come to the right place. We’ve all been there, strutting out of the salon feeling like a bronzed goddess and heading home to follow the after care instructions exactly.
You’ve set your alarm for 2 hours from when your rapid tan was applied and before you know it, it’s time to shower. You jump in the shower and watch as the water turns from clear to brown and back to clear again. You’ve only had a quick rinse, haven’t used any products and you pat your skin dry with the towel instead of rubbing. You look in the mirror and panic mode sets in… WHERE HAS YOUR TAN GONE? Just 60 seconds ago you were a beautiful shade of chocolate and now it looks like you didn’t even get a tan at all!
