SPRAY TANNING
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Q. How soon will I see the tanning result?
A. You will receive an immediate, all natural looking tan that will continue to develop and become darker over the next 6 to 12 hours. We recommend that you not shower for 8 hours and waiting longer is even better.

Q. Will a spray tan cause freckles in people who usually freckle when tanning?
A. No. There is nothing in the tanning solution that will cause more freckles to break out. In fact, in most cases, freckles and blemishes will become less pronounced because the lighter skin areas will darken and reduce the color differentiation between the blemishes and the rest of the skin.

Q. How long will my spray tan last?
A. There are a number of factors that affect how long a tan will last. Preparation and aftercare is very important if you want to extend the life of your tan. This means exfoliating before hand and moisturizing afterwards. Depending on your skin type and how each solution reacts with your skin your tan can last any where from 5-7 days on average

Q. How long should I wait after a tanning session before showering?
A. To give your spray tan enough time to fully develop, it is recommended waiting a minimum of 8 hours after tanning (unless otherwise instructed). Showering sooner may diminish the intensity of the tan.

Q. Will swimming affect my spray tan?
A. Swimming in chlorinated water or salt water will fade your tan and can cause possible streaking. When swimming try to only go for short dips and rinse off in fresh water afterwards.

Q. Should I shave or wax before or after I get my spray tan?
A. Whether you shave or wax is completely up to you, both should be done before the application of the tan. Ideally shaving should be done at least 8 hours before and waxing at least the day before. When waxing, be sure that all wax is removed otherwise the tan will stick to the wax and will appear very dark where the wax has not been removed. Shaving after the application will take off some of your tan, so shave only when you really need to and ensure that your blade is sharp.

Q. My skin never tans! Will a spray tan work on my skin?
A. Yes it will definitely work on your skin! On very fair skin, we will apply our medium organic solution if you are concerned about going too dark. Most fair skinned clients squeal with excitement when they see their skin is tan instead of red or sunburned looking!

Q. Is spray tanning the same as air brush tanning?
A. Although the equipment is similar, our system uses a high volume – low pressure technology application that will ensure your tan is applied evenly and properly. It is much more sophisticated than air brush technology and covers the client’s body much more effectively

Q. Will I turn yellow or orange?
A. No, these tanning solutions are very natural looking and do not contain some of the chemicals and dyes that many tanning companies have added into their sprays. These chemicals and dyes are the source of the off color that you can sometimes see with other sprays. The formulas we use at Evanesque create a beautiful bronze glow.

Q. Does a spray tan provide SPF protection?
A. For the maximum result, before your session, shower and exfoliate the skin. Make sure your skin is free of perfumes, lotions, oils, deodorants, gels or any product on the skin that would create a barrier or cause the tan to develop unevenly.

Q. How do I prepare for a Spray Tan session?
A. Yes it will defiantly work on your skin! On very fair skin we will apply a very light spray if you are concerned about going to dark or getting an orange hue.

Q. What should I wear?
A. You may wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Whether you wear nothing, underwear or your swim suit is completely up to you. We also have available disposable thongs. After your spray tan, loose, dark clothing is preferable while the tan continues to dry.

Q. Will a spray tan ruin light clothing such as a wedding dress? ?
A. No, the tan will not ruin light clothing if you have the tan applied 1-2 days before you intend to wear any light colored clothing. It is best to shower twice prior to big events.

Q. What are the benefits of getting a cosmetic tan applied professionally as opposed to DIY?
A. When you DIY it is not only hard to reach your back and the back of your legs, it is also hard to tell whether you have applied the lotion, cream or spray consistently. Our staff has excellent product knowledge and is able to evenly and quickly apply a solution that will work well with your skin. We do however suggest that if you are planning for a wedding or big event, you come in prior to the event for your initial tan.
