Is it OK if I still have some leftover tan from last time?
No. One very important rule to remember is that you NEVER want to layer or “build” a spray tan. The idea is similar to that of chipped nail polish. You would never paint over chipped nail polish and expect to get a smooth, even coat, right? Same is true with Air-Tanning. You want to be sure to completely exfoliate all of your old tan off before getting sprayed again. If you don’t, you will more than likely turn out uneven and/or orange! One of the great aspects of an Air-Tan is that all you need is one 15-minute session to get as little or as much color as you need, so layering is really not necessary.
Do I have to take my makeup off?
No, the spray tan will go through your makeup and still tan your face. One thing to keep in mind is that if your tanning appointment is later in the day, you won’t be able to wash your makeup off before you go bed since you have to wait eight hours before getting wet.
Will this stain my clothing or sheets?
Maybe. We always recommend that you wear dark-colored (black, brown, navy) clothing, so that any bronzer that does rub off won’t show. It washes out of cottons easily, but materials such as nylons, silk, and elastic can stain. If you are wearing your own bottoms or top while getting sprayed, make sure they are dark or old ones you don’t care about anymore. We do provide a disposable thong for women to wear during the session if you are worried about wearing your own items. I personally have about five pairs of old undies that I keep as my “tanning underwear” and just wash and rotate.
What happens if this gets in my hair?
The solution is water soluble, so it will just wash out with your first shower. My hair has been super duper blonde for the last several years and even with spending the majority of my days in the spray room, my hair is still blonde as ever! It all washes right out every night.
