HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR TAN:
Our tanning expert will get you ready for your on-stage body building show.

  • For best results you will want to come in with clean, exfoliated skin. This means NO lotions, oils, face makeup, deodorant, or perfumes as these products will create a barrier between your skin and the tanning solution
  • Exfoliate your skin with a washcloth, loofa, or salt scrub. DO NOT use scrubs with oil.
  • All waxing and shaving should be done 24 Hour Prior to you tan

WHAT TO DO AFTER YOUR TAN:
Our tanning expert will get you ready for your on-stage body building show.

  • You must wait a minimum of 6 hours to shower, for best and longest results 12 hours is recommended.
  • As your tan processes DO NOT get wet, sweat, apply any makeup, lotion, or deodorant as this will stop the tanning process.
  • The initial bronzer will progressively get darker as it processes which is expected. When showering for the first time the initial bronzer will wash off and your beautiful tan will be revealed. We recommend not using body wash or soap for the first shower.
  • Applying hydrating lotions frequently as this will help to preserve your tan for 7-10 days.
  • For longest results avoid exfoliants, shaving, waxing, long showers, and baths.
  • Your tan will will gradually fade as the dead skin cell flake off. Prolonged water submersion, swimming, or heavy sweating can lighten the tan as these activated accelerating your skins natural exfoliating process.

WHAT TO WEAR TO YOUR SESSION:
Our tanning expert will get you ready for your on-stage body building show.

  • Loose, dark colored clothing is best and most comfortable to wear after your session. The initial bronzer may rub off on cloths and sheets, but will wash out with a laundry cycle.
  • For women clothing is optional, we do have disposable undies if you prefer not to get your clothing sprayed
  • Men must wear some sort of bottoms during your session

THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE TAN:
Sunless tanning sprays, gels, creams, and lotions color the skin without exposure to ultraviolet exposure. The main ingredient in such products is C3H6O3, or dihydroxyacetone (DHA). DHA is a simple sugar derived from sugarcane, sugar beets, and the fermentation of glycerin. The colorless 3-carbon sugar compound binds with the first layer of skin, the stratum corneum.

These “dead” skin cells lack a nucleus and organelles, and are thus unable to reproduce. However, the dead cells still contain keratin, an amino acid responsible for skin coloration.

When DHA chemically reacts with the keratin in the skin cells, there is a resulting darkening effect. These pigments, called melanoidins, range from yellow to brown, just like the natural melanin of found within the skin’s layers.
