Before + After Tan Tips

All waxing should be done at least 24 hours before, along with any shaving 8 hours before your appointment. You can shower 2-4 hours before your tan making sure you exfoliate well. If you are going to get your nails done make sure to do so before coming in. DO NOT put on any lotions, make up, deodorant, or oils. Arrive with hair up off your neck and in dark loose clothing. 


You will check in at the kiosk at the front of the salon. Find my name (Helios- Kelli Parrish). It will notify me that you have arrived. You'll want to remove all jewelry. Dress down to your comfort level. Male clients are required to wear undergarments. Any clothing worn during the tan should be dark in color. 

Wear light layers for 10-12 hours while your tan is developing. Try not to get wet until your first shower. Don't use any soap the first shower. the cosmetic bronzer will wash off and your natural tan will be developed. Pat dry with towel. Moisturize well with a water based lotion immediately after your shower and every day after that. Avoid using retinols, acne medication, bar soaps, products with alcohols in them. Your tan should last 7-10 days with proper care.
