Our Tanning Prep Protocol

The Most Important Steps To Follow


Shower & exfoliate the whole body night before or morning of your appointment. Make sure what your using is oil free. We highly recommend our Exfoliating Mitt which also removes dead skin and old tan and is simply activated with water. Shave/wax areas needed-most shaving creams contain lanolin (oil), so plain soap is best.

Previous self-tanner/spray tan must be fully removed.

Before arrival please do not apply any oils, makeup, perfumes or lotions as this can prevent the tan from sticking evenly to the skin. Avoid deodorant if possible as well. No retinols or acids on skin at least week prior as this can cause peeling.


Ensure jewelry is removed & hair is pulled back.

What to Wear to Your Appointment

Dark, loose-fitting clothes, no tights or jeans-dresses are a great option. Have an umbrella handy just in case of rain/snow, you must stay dry while developing to prevent streaks or marks.

Women -Whatever is most comfortable for you, we're a judge free, all bodies are beautiful type environment. Keep in mind if having tan lines will be an issue we recommend not wearing a bra during the tan.

Some choose to go fully nude, others wear thong & strapless bra, or topless with underwear on. Disposable thongs for women are provided if needed. We recommend no bra post tan if you don't wear one for the tan or marks will happen.

Men - bathing suit bottoms, underwear, or thong must be worn.

Please note: that there may be some minor colour transfer onto clothes or bedding only directly after tan before your first shower. This will not stain and can usually be removed in the wash.

After Care Instructions

After your tan, don’t shower for 8-10 hrs as your tan is still developing. If you chose the Rapid- min 2.5-4hrs. No exercise, sweating, getting hands or body wet, including dishwashing until you have taken your first shower after developing time has elapsed.

When showering, rinse with warm water (not hot) using hand until the water runs clean. This will ensure all developer has been removed. Your tan will then be revealed. No soaps on first rinse. We recommend our all natural Golden Vanilla Brown Sugar Soap available in store and online. This also doubles as a shave bar.

To keep your tan looking it's best & lasting long, apply an alcohol-free/perfume free moisturizer morning & night starting after your first shower. Our Beach Bum Stay Golden Tan Extending Lotion will help to preserve the life of your tan and also works on untanned skin to build a subtle glow.​

Do not exfoliate the body until the tan is almost gone, or when you would like to start to remove it. Reduce shaving as well.


Swimming in pools & the ocean is completely fine, but it can cause your tan to fade quicker from the saltwater & pool chemicals. We don't recommend the use of hot tubs until your tan is starting to fade.

Your tan can last anywhere between 5-7+ days depending on your skins integrity, tan prep and what is being used for after care. If goal is for it to last as long as possible please let us know so we can recommend the appropriate extender for you.
