Airbrush Tanning FAQ’s
*All other appointments should be done at least one day before your tanning session: Mani/pedis, hair, waxing, botox, facials, massage, etc..
The Day Before Your Tan
It is ideal that you Shower, Shave and Exfoliate 24 hours or the night before your spray tan. This gives the PH levels in your skin time to balance out and your pores time to close before applying the spray tan. After your shower, apply a rich moisturizer. This will help lock in moisture and prepare your skin for the spray tan.
The Day Of Your Session
The day of your spray tan, simply shower with an oil free bath soap. DO NOT apply any kind of moisturizer, and use deodorant sparingly. Our Queen Bee Solution and Busy Bee Solution both contain Argan Oil, so your skin will feel silky smooth after your session.
What to Bring to your Session
Be sure to bring loose fitting, dark clothing (preferably cotton) with you to wear after your session. It is important to not wear boots or socks after your session, as it will leave marks. Bring flip flops or open top shoes and of course, an Umbrella (in case of bad weather)!
During your Session
Ladies may wear a bathing suit, undergarments or tan nude. Disposable thongs are also provided.
Gentlemen must be wearing underwear or shorts. We suggest undergarments be dark in color.
The Bronzed Bee will provide you with detailed post care instructions after your session. Depending on which spray tan you selected, we will go over how long to wait before showering.
In the meantime, 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.
Your first shower should be a quick, lukewarm shower. Use an oil free soap, stay away from soap with lotion (dove, Oil of Olay, etc) and DO NOT exfoliate. After your shower be sure to pat dry and apply an oil free moisturizer.
For maximum results, moisturize twice a day. Following these simple steps will help you maintain your gorgeous glow over the next few days.
