Spray tanning is one of the most efficient ways to get the bronzed glow you want, without the harmful effects of UV sun exposure and tanning beds. As we are aware, skin that is overexposed to the sun or UV is far more prone to sunburn, skin conditions, premature aging and most ominously, skin cancer. While the sun is vital in providing us vitamins and minerals that we need to be healthy, overexposure can be dangerous and even life threatening.

Spray Tan F.A.Q.
How should I prepare for my spray tan?
Do any waxing, shaving, manicures or pedicures before you come for your spray tan. If possible, come with clean skin, no lotions, make-up or deodorant (although you may take this off once you reach the salon, if you prefer.) Bring something a little bit loose and dark to wear after your spray tan. Don't go to the gym and avoid sweating immediately after being sprayed. Avoid the rain; bring an umbrella with you just in case!
We can spray tan over your make-up if you are going somewhere right after your spray - it actually looks really nice. The only negative is that often people go to sleep with self tanner on (as it is best to wait 4 - 12 hours to shower) and most people don’t like to go to bed with an unwashed face...
What should I wear for my spray tanning session?
That depends on if you want tan lines or not. If you don’t want tan lines you should skip undergarments. If you prefer to wear your own underwear or swim wear, chose something black - although the tinted self tanner washes out of most fabrics it can stain nylon and leather. Also, the clothes you choose to wear home after your spray tan should be loose and dark - a little self tanner can come off on the inside of your clothes right after you are spray tanned.
How long will my spray tan last?
Your tan will last anywhere from 5 TO 10 days or longer, depending on:
- How much time you spend in the shower or bath
- What products you use on your skin, body, and hair
- How often you exercise and sweat
Is spray tanning safe?
Our tanning solution has the active ingredient DHA (dihydroxyacetone). DHA has been approved for cosmetic use by the FDA, the Canadian Health Ministry, and the EU nations. It is considered non toxic and non carcinogenic. Because DHA does not use the skin's melanocytes to make the skin tan it is recommended as a cosmetic remedy for improving the appearance of vitiligo. DHA-based sunless tanning has been recommended by the Skin Cancer Organization, American Academy of Dermatologists, Canadian Dermatology Association, The American Cancer Society and the American Medical Society.
