HOW LONG DOES IT LAST? 

About 7 to 10 days. You can extend the life of  your tan longer by avoiding long hot showers, mineral oil based lotions, excessive exfoliation, swimming in chlorine bleach  pools, and the beach (salt water acts an exfoliant). Also people who work out and shower excessively more often will not keep their tans as long as most people.

WHEN SHOULD I SHAVE OR WAX?

Waxing and shaving of any kind should be done 24 hours prior to your spray tan service.

Prep 

1. Exfoliate your skin and shave the night prior. Do not use products that have oil or a bar of soap.

2. Do not wear makeup, deodorant, perfumes or moisturizers before your spray tan.

3. Wear loose fitting clothing after your spray tan.

4. Bring dark bathing suit, bikini or small thong under wear if you would like to leave desired shaped tan lines.

   

DO I NEED TO SHOWER BEFOREHAND?

Yes shower and exfoliate the day off your appointment. For best results shower right before your spray tan if possible. Avoid perfumes, lotions, deodorants or anything with lanolin and fragrance.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Using three organic tanning agents – Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) boosted by DMI & Erythulose – without any stains or dyes, Fake Bake works with your own unique skin tone to produce a naturally-based darker pigmentation on your skin’s surface. By enhancing your skin’s own pigments, Fake Bake will give you a natural-looking tan that lasts longer. Fake Bake also has a built-in color guide so you can see where you’re applying the self-tanning product on your skin, ensuring streak-free application. Thus, you get a perfectly even golden bronze tan, every time.

 

WILL IT STAIN MY SHEETS AND CLOTHING?

No, but bronzer will transfer onto your sheets and closing generally the first day so wear something dark and always loose fitting. If you are concerned about your bed change your sheets to a darker color or put a towel down.

HOW LONG BEFORE I SHOWER?

You will need to leave the tan on your skin for a minimum of 6 hours, but 24 HOURS is desired for the FLAWLESS spray tan.  RAPID DARKER spray tan can be left for 1 hour (light), 2 hours (medium), 3 hours (dark). once desired time is reached you may rinse off in the shower.
