Pre / Post tan instructions


Prior to tanning...
 

We recommend scheduling a Professional Skin Analysis with our Licensed Esthetician, 
although not required. 
You will receive customized recommendations to ensure optimum skin health
 which will help maintain and extend your beautiful tan.


 

Exfoliating before a tan is helpful but not required for a gorgeous tan.
Exfoliating prior to your appointment extends the life of your tan and helps it fade naturally. 
Exfoliating with a natural dry bristle brush is recommended.  
Brush entire body(dry), before showering each day.
~

Do not use body moisturizer or deod0rant the day of your tan.  
Many products on the market contain oils that will interfere with even absorption of tanning spray.

Using products that contain harsh chemicals pre/post spray tanning can affect the outcome of your tan.
~

Organic Sun Skin Spa offers both pre and post moisturizers and exfoliators
(recommended before and after tanning) 
that are formulated to balance the ph in your skin without interfering with your tan. 
The ph and protein levels in your skin will determine how dark your tan becomes. 
Balancing the ph level will ensure a beautiful bronze tan.
~

We recommend choosing an inexpensive swim suit or thong to tan in unless you choose to tan nude 
since we cannot guarantee the bronzer will not stain.

(Men are required to wear bottoms)


Pre tan checklist...

ABSOLUTELY NO MAKE-UP
1. Swimsuit, although not required
2. Towel for car seat
3. Loose fitting clothes/shoes to wear after tanning.

4. In rainy weather, we suggest you bring an umbrella and
loose fitting long sleeves, pants and shoes that cover your feet.

NOTE:
Please shower the morning of your appointment. 
DO NOT APPLY deod0rant or moisturizer after showering.
NEW CLIENTS:  

PLEASE ARRIVE TEN MINUTES PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT TIME
 
TO COMPLETE PAPERWORK.


After tanning...

To ensure an even tan, please avoid getting your skin wet for at least 8 hours after your tan session. 
This includes sweating, washing hands, or walking through a rain shower. 
Bring loose fitting clothes to wear after your session keeping in mind that the bronzer can rub off 
but will usually wash out when laundered. 
We suggest wearing natural fibers like 100% cotton after tanning along with lite shoes
that won't rub or cause your feet to perspire after tanning.
~

Organic Sun is not responsible for potential stains to clothing, fabrics or upholstery. 
It is recommended that you cover your car seat with a towel if wearing shorts to avoid stains from the bronzer.
Do not get product on satin, silk, wool, or leather as it may stain these fabrics.
~

 Follow up maintenance includes avoiding exfoliating for 4 days after your tanning session. 
Be sure to apply moisturizer daily following your tanning session to slow your natural exfoliation process
and to keep those skin layers moist and supple. 
~
