Preparation is one of the most important things when it comes to getting (and keeping) the perfect spray tan. Making sure that you stay hydrated, moisturizing on a regular basis, and taking care of your skin are all key factors that will determine how well your skin will receive color and how long it will last.

The last step in spray tan preparation is taking a shower and exfoliation. You should avoid showering right before your spray tan. Pores are larger than usual and skin is not at its normal pH level after showering or bathing. Spraying skin too quickly after a shower or bath can fill pores with tanning solution, causing the skin to not absorb the DHA as well as it would at the normal pH level.

We suggest showering or bathing at least 8 or more hours before your scheduled spray tan to achieve the best outcome!
