Pink Dot offers full-body airbrush spray tanning in a private room at our downtown studio. Each tan is customized for the individual clients skin tone, preference and occasion.
How should I prepare for my spray tan?
Approximately 24-48 hours prior to your appointment remove body hair by shaving or waxing. Please do not apply lotions, oils, or deodorant before your appointment, as it can affect the solution’s ability to soak into the skin.
What should I wear during my appointment?
What you wear during your spray tan is completely up to you- you can wear an old bikini (something that can be stained by the solution), nothing at all or anything in between. Most clients wear only black (thong) underwear, but ultimately, your comfort level is most important, so whatever you decide is perfectly fine!
What should I wear after my appointment?
Afterwards you’ll want to wear dark loose clothing that will not rub the skin. We recommend something that you can wear without undergarments. Avoid wearing socks or tight shoes after your tanning session in order to allow the tan to develop properly on your feet. Don’t forget to bring along some flip flops!
When can I shower?
Please wait 6-8 hours (ideally overnight) before taking your next shower in order to let the tan develop.
How long will my tan last?
With proper care, your tan will last about a week or more.
How should I care for my tan?
Proper skin prep is key, so please be sure to follow the pre-tan recommendations! We recommend avoiding products that exfoliate the skin, as well as alcohol-based products. Hot baths, swimming and chlorine can all shorten the life of your tan. Try not to exercise (or perspire excessively) in the first 24 hours. Avoid applying moisturizers or deodorants immediately after your appointment and avoid wearing tight clothing for at least 5 hours.
Prolonged hot baths and showers should be avoided in order to maintain the tanning effect for as long as possible. Daily hydration of the skin is highly recommended.
