**Is this your first time receiving a spray tan from The Tan Cabana? Be sure to ask for our $10 discount for new clients!**
2) Exfoliate and shave the day before your appointment, and avoid any oil-based products and lotions that might prevent the tan from being absorbed. We discuss in-depth tips on Pre-Tanning Skincare in this blog post and on our Tanning Tips webpage!
3) Pack loose-fitting, dark clothes to wear after the spray tan, and a dark-colored bikini or thong and bra if clothing is desired during the application. Clothing is optional for female clients, and we ask that men please wear boxers, a swimsuit or speedo.

After your appointment:
1) Do not shower, swim or sweat for a recommended 8-12 hours after your spray tan to allow for full absorption into the skin—or better yet, sleep on it! The instant cosmetic bronzer we use will wash off in the water, allowing the underlying spray tan to shine through. Our FAQ page describes this further.
2) Do not use items like loofahs, washcloths or skincare products that strip or exfoliate the top layer of skin for the next week or more after your spray tan. Pat your skin dry after each shower, and apply lotion frequently! The key to a long-lasting airbrush tan is to keep skin from sloughing off by maintain hydration.
