First Hour After your Airbrush Tan (Post-Tan Care):

  • Wipe off the palms of your hands with a baby wipe.
  • Use a fan, blow dryer or air hose to accelerate drying of your skin.
  • Wait at least 5 minutes before getting dressed.
  • Place a towel over your driver’s seat for your car ride home.



6–8 Hours (Regular Tan) or 2–4 Hours (Rapid Tan) After your
Airbrush Tan (Post-Tan Care):

  • Avoid any activity that would cause sweating; exercise, cleaning, or showering, as your spray tan is developing during these hours.  Contact with water or sweat could result in lines or uneven tanning.
  • If you choose to sleep in your airbrush tan so that it darkens overnight, please cover your bed with dark sheets and pillow cases so that any bronzer does not stain your regular sheets.

8+ Hours After your Airbrush Tan (Post-Tan Care):

  • Shower normally.  You will see some color wash away from your skin.  This is completely normal, and was only the color guard (instant tan that you could see after your airbrush tan).  The color guard is used to give immediate tan results, but also so that the technician may see where they are applying solution.  Do not be concerned by this, as your developed tan is still there.
  • Wash with mild, moisturizing shower gel (do not use a washcloth or loofah, as this will rub off your tan).
  • Do not wash in very hot water; this can cause your tan to fade more quickly than washing in milder temperatures.
  • While you are drying, remember to pat, not rub your skin.
  • Apply a moisturizer in the am and pm.

Keep Calm and Book a Spray Tan
