Prolong Your Tan

Spray Tan Aftercare

  • Avoid Sweating

    While your tan is developing, avoid any activity that would result in sweating. Depending on the SunnaTan solution you are tanned with, development can range from 3 to 12 hours. Please discuss this with your Airbrush Artist.

  • Wear Dark Pyjamas

    If sleeping in your tan while it develops, wear loose, dark clothing to bed. The bronzer may rub off on your bedding and clothing, however, nothing will stain. Maximum spray tan results can be expected 24 hours after your tan.

  • Do Not Shower

    SunnaTan offers 2 types of spray solutions. Discuss shower times with your airbrush artist. While your tan develops, scrub your palms only when washing your hands. Do not rest your fingertips on your face or body, and limit skin-to-skin physical contact with others to avoid colour transfer.

  • Pat Skin Dry

    Pat your skin dry after showering and avoid any excessive rubbing with your towel.

  • Shave with a New Razor

    You can still shave while you have a tan; however, we do not recommend doing it daily. Always use a new razor and use a hydrating natural oil or cleanser to act as a buffer between the razor and your skin.

  • Use Safe Body Wash

    Use mild hydrating body wash for the duration of your tan. Do not use soaps and body wash with synthetic fragrances.

  • Don't Spray on Skin

    Spray perfume on your clothes, rather than directly onto your skin. Face cleansers and moisturizers containing anti-aging or anti-acne active ingredients such as salicylic acid, AHA's and/ or benzoyl peroxide are not recommended.  

  • Moisturize Daily

    Moisturize twice a day with sunless tan friendly products that are alcohol & synthetic fragrance free. Use SunnaTan skin care products that are specifically designed to help extend the life of your spray tan.

  • Use Sunscreen

    Your spray tan tan does not protect you from the sun. Please use a sunscreen formulated to hydrate the skin. For more vacation tan tips click here.

  • Use Tanning Extenders

    Use SunnaTan easy to use sunless tanning extenders to prolong the length of your tan, or use them on their own for a DIY glow.

  • Use Exfoliating Mitt

    When your tan is beginning to fade, use our SunnaTan Exfoliating Mitt to help even out your skin tone and prep for your next airbrush tan.

“This course was very nicely laid out, it was actually interactive considering its online, was not dry at all. Very interesting to learn and the visuals/demos were awesome! This course was very well done, I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get certified! I absolutely love and trust SunnaTan products.”
