24 Hours Prior to your Spray Tan (Pre Tan Care):

Shave or use depilatory cream to remove unwanted body hair.

Exfoliate entire body with mild, oil free, non-abrasive exfoliant.

8 Hours Prior to your Spray Tan (Pre Tan Care):

Shower, but do not apply body oils or moisturizer to skin, as this can create a barrier on your skin.

Wear clothing that are dark in color, preferably black and loose fitting (cotton clothing) to avoid excess contact or staining to your clothing after your spray tan.

Do not wear tight fitting jeans, pants, or shorts, or light synthetic fabrics .

It is advisable to wear flip flops to and from your spray tan appointment.

5 Minutes Prior to your Spray Tan (Pre Tan Care):

Remove make up and deodorant with wipes or wash.

Pull hair up and away from face and neck with a hair tie and cover with a hair cap.

Remove clothing, shoes, and jewelry.

Apply pre-tan spray and barrier cream.

6-8 Hours after your Spray Tan (Post Tan Care):

Avoid any activity that would cause sweating; exercise, or showering, as your spray tan is developing during these hours. Contact with water or sweat could result in uneven tanning.

If you choose to sleep in your spray 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. If you do get bronzer on your sheets or clothes it will wash out in the laundry. 

8 Hour after your Spray 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 spray 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.

Rinse in the shower with warm water only; no soap or gel.

While you are drying, remember to pat, not rub your skin.

Apply a tan extending lotion at night (please ask your tanning technician for more information).

The Life of your Spray Tan: (Post Tan Care):

The life of your spray tan depends on the care you take of your skin. Moisturize twice a day. The following products have been shown to reduce the number of days that a spray tan will remain on the skin, so try to find alternatives or simply avoid these products until just before your next spray tanning session.

-Band Aids, Face Masks, or Biore Pore Strips.

-Bar Soaps -Hair Removal Creams and Shaving.  Wash with a mild, moisturizing shower gel.


How Long Will My Lavish Tan Last?

A Lavish Tan will last anywhere from 7-10 days, on average. The amount of physical activity, after care, and proper preparation for the tan are all factors of how many days one can expect their tan to last.

Will I Look Orange From a Lavish Tan?

Never. Lavish Tan created a patent pending, brown-sugar based solution derived from apples. The brown sugar base ensures golden brown color eliminating all possibilities of an orange tone. Most all other solutions on the market contain beat or carrot fermented extracts, which is where the orange tones and unpleasant scent stem from. We guarantee the highest quality, golden-brown results.

What If I Have Very Fair Skin?

Our Lavish Tan signature solution will react naturally with each specific skin tone. Lavish Tan airbrush technicians will custom blend a formulation specific to each client's natural base color. However, if it is your first time tanning, or you have an extremely fair complexion, we suggest choosing a lighter tone to ensure satisfaction. Very fair complexed individuals may require a follow up session 12-24 hours later.


The active ingredient in self tanning products is dihydroxyacetone (DHA). DHA has been used in cosmetic preparations for almost 30 years and was listed with the FDA in 1973. It is declared safe and suitable for use in cosmetics and used to color the skin. DHA is derived from glycerin (vegetable origin) which is a commonly used cosmetic and food ingredient. DHA is not absorbed into the body and poses no possibility of toxicity.

How Do I Prepare For My Lavish Tan?

  1. Thoroughly exfoliate and shave prior to your treatment.
  2. Avoid wearing make up, moisturizers, and deodorant to your appointment, as this acts as a barrier to the spray and stops the color from developing properly.
  3. Wear dark colored, loose fitting clothing and sandals following your treatment.
  4. Wax and have a manicure and pedicure done BEFORE your treatment.

How Do I Maintain My Lavish Tan?

  1. Do not shower or sweat for 5-7 hours following your appointment. For Express Tan by Lavish Tan allow 2-4 hours before showering.
  2. Moisturize using a paraben-free lotion at least twice daily for a minimum of one week. Keeping moisturized will ensure an even, flawless fade. Lavish Tan After-Care Moisturizer is recommend for best results.
  3. Avoid chlorinated jacuzzis, saunas, and steam rooms.

Can I Tan During Pregnancy?

Lavish Tan's signature brown sugar solution is 99% organic. We have been safely tanning women during pregnancy for over 10 years. However, we still suggest consulting with your doctor beforehand.

How Many Days Should I Tan Before My Wedding?

For all the brides to be, we suggest scheduling your appointment 2-3 days before the big day. You'll want to be sure to shower at least 3 times before the wedding date. This will ensure all the bronzer is completely rinsed out of your pores to avoid any color rubbing onto your dress. We reccomend a light, natural color for brides.
