We strive to ensure the highest quality sunless experience for our clientele.
Let's walk you through the steps for your very best sunless experience.
Proper sunless preparation is IMPERATIVE for your absolute best results!
DAY BEFORE TAN
-SHAVE/WAX UNWANTED BODY HAIR-
Shaving is a form of exfoliation. Because of this, it is best to complete shaving the day before your session and resume shaving 24 hours after your session. PRO TIP- Shave with a conditioner to eliminate any film left on the skin.
-EXFOLIATE BODY WITH A KESSA MIT-
Exfoliation is ESSENTIAL to remove dead skin cells from the skin and expose the freshest skin for your sunless tan to develop on (This ensures the longest life of your tan) PHYSICAL exfoliation with a mitt is the BEST form of exfoliation. The Kessa Mitt is available in studio.
-COMPLETE MANICURE & PEDICURE-
It is best to complete any nail appointments BEFORE your sunless appointment. Your OG PRO will ensure nails are cleaned during your session. If you must get your nails done AFTER your sunless tan we recommend the NEXT DAY and JUST PAINT- no exfoliation or soaking.
-DISCONTINUE BAR SOAPS & CREAM BASED BODY WASHES-
These soaps (Dove/OLAY) leave a film on the skin and wont allow proper sunless development. It is best to discontinue the use of these soaps for the entire duration of your sunless tan for best results.
-COMPLETE ANY SPA TREATMENTS-
It is best to complete any spa treatments BEFORE your sunless session. PRO TIP- Your sunless session should always be your LAST beauty treatment.
-MOISTURIZE ENTIRE BODY-
Moisturize your skin with a spray tan safe body lotion the day before your tan to ensure your skin is nice and hydrated.
DAY OF TAN
It is best not to shower RIGHT before your sunless appointment to ensure proper skin pH. Please allow at least 4 hours between your shower and your appointment. If you must shower- rinse with cold water & skip the soap.
-DISCONTINUE PRODUCT APPLICATION-
Avoid applying lotions, oils, perfumes and make-up prior to your session. These products can act like a barrier on the skin. If you must apply products please note we do keep make-up wipes & wipes for deodorant removal in the studio.
-ENSURE PROPER CLOTHING-
During your session you may wear whatever you are most comfortable in (Men MUST wear undergarments) We do provide disposable thongs & nipple covers in studio.
POST TAN- It is best to wear dark, loose-fitting clothing with open-toed shoes. Bras are also not recommended for best results.
DURING YOUR VISIT
First, your OG PRO will walk you through our client intake form and go over any questions you may have. We will then go over all solution options and customize the best solution for you.
Your OG PRO will then introduce you to the sunless room. We provide all necessary items for you here (Make-up wipes, disposable thongs, & nipple covers)
Your OG PRO will walk you through the entire process. Sunless sessions take around 30 minutes to complete.
SUNLESS AFTER CARE
-AVOID SKIN ON SKIN CONTACT-
After your session is complete it is imperative to keep your hands from touching your skin. The best way to ensure this is to wear clothing that protects your skin as much as possible. Limit any skin on skin contact until your initial rinse to avoid any transfer.
-AVOID MOISTURE UNTIL YOUR RINSE-
For your best results it is important to refrain from getting wet or sweating until your initial rinse is complete.
-RINSE AT DESIGNATED TIME-
It is important to rinse at your designated time for your best results. Your first shower is always just a RINSE with lukewarm water and NO PRODUCT. Massage your skin in the shower to ensure all bronzer is rinsed away. Always PAT dry with your towel. Your tan will continue to develop over a full 24 hours.
It is best to wait a full 24 hours from your session before applying moisturizer or using any soaps. Using products on the skin before full color development can hinder results.
-PRESERVE YOUR TAN-
For your best results it is best to avoid long hot showers, swimming in chlorine, hot tubs, and saunas for long periods of time. If you plan to take part in these activities it is recommended to have tan extending products at home to preserve the life of your tan.
