Pre-Tanning Skin Care
To get the most out of your airbrush spray tan with The Tan Cabana, we encourage clients to prepare skin beforehand so that your golden glow applies evenly and last as long as possible! Utilize these pre-tanning skincare tips to ready y
our skin for our all-natural, organic spray tan application:
One of the best ways to prepare for The Tan Cabana’s airbrush spray tan is by sloughing off dead skin cells that might 1) absorb the spray tan instead and 2) give your skin a dry, uneven appearance. To prevent this from happening, utilize our exclusive Infinity Sun Exfoliating Mask—made with a non-abrasive pineapple enzyme called Bromelain, this exfoliator can be used the same day as your spray tan to ready your skin, without causing small abrasions that many other exfoliators do.
**Expert tip: avoid exfoliators with oils in them; they create a barrier between your skin and the airbrush spray tan. Our Exfoliating Mask is oil-free, gentle and safe for use anytime.
2. Remove Unnecessary Body Hair.
Another great way to prepare for your airbrush spray tan is by removing unneeded body hair the day before, either by shaving (also effective for exfoliating skin beforehand!) or other hair removal products. The Tan Cabana recommends that our clients exfoliate and shave the night before an airbrush spray tan, and do a quick rinse with a gentle body wash the next morning.
**Expert tip: Avoid Dove products before your spray tan, which can leave a film on skin and prevent it from applying evenly.
For spray tan aftercare, try our hydrating Bikini Island Body Wash, which is loaded with calming green tea, nourishing sea kelp and revitalizing citrus essential oils to extend your tan.
**Celebrities like Brandi Glanville love Infinity Sun, which are the premier choice for all-natural airbrush spray tans and the only product The Tan Cabana uses!
3. Drink Lots of Water and Moisturize.
It’s important to hydrate all the time, but when you want your skin to appear supple and healthy, drinking fluids is one of the best ways to achieve this. The USDA recommends that both adult women and men consume at least 2.7 liters of water per day, both in foods and beverages. Moisturizers used several days before a spray tan also lock in water to ensure your skin is smooth and receptive to the airbrush spray tan.
**Expert tip: Want an easy way to touch up your tan between sessions? Try our Glow on the Go, an all-natural handheld spray tan aerosol that applies easily and lasts up to seven days!
