At Air-Tan we get a lot of clients getting Air-Tanned in preparation for a special event like a wedding, party, photo shoot, or vacation. With so many beauty rituals needed to feel fully ready for a special event, when should you get your Air-Tan applied? This sounds like a complicated scenario, but it is actually really simple. There are are only 2 rules to remember.
1.) You must wait 8 hours after having your Air-Tan applied to shower, sweat or get wet. Please do keep this in mind when scheduling your appointment. For this reason, I would never recommend to get your Air-Tan applied on the same day as your event. Coming 1-2 days prior for your event is ideal. This way you can shower all the bronzer and moisturizers off. This will keep you from feeling and looking sticky and tacky. Also, once you take your first shower and rinse the bronzer off, the bronzer can not and will not rub off on clothing.
2.) Air-Tan is your FINAL step in the beautification process. You want to do manis/pedis before your Air-Tan. Why? Well, you do not want to get wet within the first 8 hours of your Air-Tan. Also, you don’t want the nail technician to exfoliate off your newly applied Air-Tan. For these reasons, it is best to do waxing, hair coloring, and nails before your Air-Tan.
