Getting your first Air-Tan can be so exciting, but it can also be a little overwhelming. And if you’re anything like me, you like to be prepared! Here are some of our most frequently asked questions that will walk you through all the steps to getting an Air-Tan.
How do I prepare for my Air-Tan?
There is a lot you can do before you get your Air-Tan to ensure that it will look its best. First, you want to shower, shave, and exfoliate. Don’t put on any lotions, oils, or any other skin products. These can all create a barrier between the tanning solution and your skin.
We recommend that you do any hair removal before your Air-Tan. Do not get waxed once you’ve been tanned. This will take off the product.
What should I expect?
You can plan on your appointment being about 15 minutes long. It’s pretty quick and easy! One of our technicians will take you back to a private spray room where she will explain to you how to get ready for your tan. Bottoms are all that are required. We do provide a disposable thong for women if you choose, but you can undress to whatever you are comfortable in. We also provide a hairnet, face mask, and footies to protect the bottoms of your feet from getting tanned. When you’re ready, we will help you choose how dark you want to be and walk you through a number of poses to apply the tan.
Once you have been tanned, you will have time to get dressed. It’s best to put on loose, dark colored clothing that will not rub your skin. You may notice some smudging, but that is just the bronzer and will wash off when you shower.
How should I care for my tan?
The most important thing to remember is to not get wet within the first 8 hours after your tan – so no sweating or showering until the tan is fully developed. Try to be as gentle as you can on your skin to help your tan last longer. Try not to scrub too hard in the shower and just pat or air dry afterwards. Staying moisturized throughout the week will also really help your tan last longer – especially in these colder, dryer months.
