We want your tan to be flawless and last as long as possible.

The below outlines everything you need to know for your sunless session.

Ask our Tanning Consultants about the products we offer to maximize your tan. 

Before Your Appointment

  • All other appointments should be done at least one day before your tanning session. This includes Mani/Pedi, Hair, Waxing, Botox, Facials, Eyelash Extensions, Massage, etc. 

  • Shave/Exfoliate 24 hours before your session. Doing this too close to your session can affect your results. 

  • If you condition your hair thoroughly rinse your back to remove any residue from the conditioner as it creates a barrier. 

  • After your shower apply a hydrating moisturizer. Remember to wash this off before your session. 

  • Avoid applying moisturizer, lotion, deodorant, make up on the day of your appointment these will act as an inhibitor to the tan and may negatively affect your results.
