This custom spray tan consists of two layers for flawless even coverage, applied after a quick consult to help determine which solution is best for you and how dark you would like your tan to be. The solution we use is by Aviva Labs which is all natural, eco-certified organic, hypoallergenic, oil-free, alcohol-free, and fast drying. It is recommended you wait at least 8 hours before showering for this tan to fully develop.

Express Wash Off
This rapid tanning solution by Aviva is one of a kind. After the tan is applied, you will be able to shower in as little as 30 minutes for a light tan, 60 minutes for a medium tan, and 90 minutes for a dark tan.

How to get ready for your spray tan
When scheduling your appointment, keep in mind that the solution must stay on your skin
for 8-10+ hours for full color development (with the exception of the Express Wash Off tan).
Book any other appointments appropriately. Manicures, pedicures, facials and waxing should be
done before your spray tan, either the day before or earlier in the day, allowing time for you
to shower and wash off any oil-based products on your skin.
Schedule your appointment when you will be able to shower, shave, and exfoliate before your appointment.
Keep your skin is completely free of any oil, lotion, deodorant, makeup. If you use a scrub to exfoliate,
make sure it is oil free; so stay away from salt and sugar scrubs. Even some body washes are oil based,
so take caution. Oil will block the tanning solution from developing evenly.
Properly preparing your skin will ensure your tan comes out flawless and last as long as possible.
Wear dark, loose fitting clothing for after the tan is applied. Tight-fitting clothing will cause friction
and could rub off the tan before it is developed. Dark clothing is best just in case the bronzer rubs off
(and if it does, it will not stain!)
During your appointment you may wear an old bathing suit, undergarments, or as you choose if you want to avoid tan lines.
Spray Tanning Aftercare
After your spray tan is applied, you will notice immediate color which is a cosmetic bronzer, mimicking what
your tan will look like after it is developed.
While the tan is developing (8 hours) it is important to avoid water, sweat, and friction. Even one drop of
water could leave a mark on your tan.
Your skin may feel a little tacky; this should be minimal and will subside over the first couple hours.
Any areas that may feel especially tacky, you can use baby powder to diminish this.
Wait until after your first shower before applying moisturizer. If you need to apply makeup,
powder products are fine to use without affecting your tan.
After the tan is developed, you can shower and rinse the bronzer off, and then you can use moisturizer.
Keeping your skin moisturized is very important and will help your tan last longer and fade evenly.
The more you are exposed to water, (i.e. long hot showers, hot tubs, chlorinated pools, salt water, etc.),
or anything that will promote exfoliation or cell regeneration (skincare with active ingredients like glycolic,
or salicylic) will fade your tan faster.
Everyone’s skin is different, but on average you will have great color for 5-8 days, sometimes longer depending on
how well you “take care” of your tan.
