Pre-Glow Care:

  • Any waxing or shaving should be done 24 hours prior to your tanning session.
  • Cleanse your body thoroughly with non-moisturizing body wash. Using a loofah, glove, or body scrub, EXFOLIATE that body! Pay extra attention to the knees, heels and elbows, as this is where your skin is roughest. 
  • Avoid bar soaps, and all shower products with high pH levels, moisturizers or that are oil-based. These products may neutralize the DHA bronzing reaction, and cause a film on your skin. Try to exfoliate after you've conditioned your hair to ensure there is no conditioner residue.
  • After showering do not apply any lotion, deodorant or perfume. These products will act as a barrier from your skin absorbing the organic formula that will give you the beautiful spray tan.
  • All manicure and pedicure appointments should be done the day before your session; otherwise please avoid any exfoliation at your mani/pedi appointment or hand/feet soaking.
  • Arrive wearing loose-fitting, dark clothing. Snug clothing (i.e. jeans/bra) can be too abrasive and may disrupt your gorgeous spray tan before it has a chance to set in. 
  • If you are wearing make-up we will supply you with cleansing clothes to wipe it off right before your session.

Post-Glow Care:

  • Your spray tan will be fully processed approx. 8 hours after your session. Until this time avoid getting wet or sweating.
  • For the Glow on the Go service you may shower after 1-4 hours.
  • First shower- warm water rinse only! The use of soaps can strip the color development of your tan. NOTE: The cosmetic bronzer will wash away during the first shower.
  • Avoid chlorinated swimming pools or hot jacuzzis during the life of your airbrush spray tan as chlorine and hot water will strip the product from your skin. Take gentle baths and avoid baths to maximize the life of your tan.
  • Refrain from using scrubs or soaps with high pH levels, these will strip the colour faster. Avoid Dove, Oil of Olay and or any deodorant soaps.
  • Please MOISTURIZE!!!! When moisturizing use an oil-free or aloe-based moisturizer. To moisturize, maintain and extend your organic spray tan, Schulz Make-up & Beauty Studio has a number of sunless tanning products for all your needs. Our favorite combo is EXTEND Tan Moisturizer Lotion and insTANtattraction Touch Up/Tan in a can spray.
