Unprepared for your Spray Tan? Try these tips!

I can’t get a spray tan, I haven’t shaved my legs!

I can’t get a spray tan, I’m wearing a white blouse today at work.

I can’t get a spray tan, I’m in tight yoga pants from my workout class.

I can’t get a spray tan, I have on lotion AND deodorant.

I can’t get a spray tan, my event is tonight!

I can’t get a spray tan, I totally forgot to shower and exfoliate last night so I did that an hour ago…..

With over a decade of experience in the sunless tanning world, I can confidently say YES, you can totally get a spray tan right now and you will look FANTASTIC. For a while I was a single mom with a toddler building my beauty biz from the ground up. I totally know what being unprepared looks like and feeling like I couldn’t do “all the things” before getting a spray tan. Babe, I got you! I have figured out every loop hole and solution to ensure that you can get that confidence boosting glow that you deserve when it’s convenient FOR YOU.

“I wish I tried spray tanning sooner! After hiding in coverups at the beach for years, I never knew the confidence a spray tan can give you. Why? I look healthier, my skin is even and glowing, my body looks more tone and slim.” – Sarah E.


Hairy legs. You can shave after 24 hours of getting a spray tan. I’ve done in multiple times. Just be light on your razor and focus on getting the hair off without pushing down to exfoliate your skin. Moisturize afterwards, preferably with the gradual self tanner to ensure an even outcome.

White clothing. Norvell says it will wash out…. But just in case, we have dark, flowy cotton dresses that you can purchase literally inside the tan room to leave in. Hey, now you have an après tanning dress that you can leave in your trunk.

Tight clothing. See above. Sweaty? We have an Exmitt inside the room too. This disposable shower in a bag will freshen you up and instantly balance your pH levels, priming your skin for your spray tan.

All the barriers. I have on lotion, makeup and deodorant. I’m sorry, I didn’t know he was going to ask me out for tonight! Ladies, this has happened so many times.

Exmitt and makeup wipes. Then the Post treatment for hydrating and firming skin treatment. Done and Done.

I waited to the last minute and the rehearsal dinner is legit in like 5 hours. Ok, let’s Rapid Tan. You’ll be able to rinse off before you even have to do your makeup and you will get darker by the hour. It’s a light immediate color but by your event you will be glowing and at the end you will just keep looking better and better. You’re welcome.

OR I waited to the last minute and we are driving to Destin in an hour. I don’t want to rinse in an hour, but I can’t wait 5 either! Custom. Our custom solutions are beautiful and they do require 24 hours of staying dry, but when it comes to flights and travel, they are a lot of the time our go-to, and you will be bronzed for the entirety of your trip! Plus, it’s kind of fun to marinate – maybe not a popular opinion but Norvell’s Double Dark is the top selling solution for a reason.

So you literally just showered and came in squeaky clean? Cool. Pre and Post for you! Bam, let’s get your pH balanced and your skin primed for the tan, then hydrate, replenish, nourish and firm your skin after. The best part? You will easily get 2 more days out of your tan.

Look and Feel pretty effortlessly and without sacrificing time. We meet your beauty needs on your time and we get that you are a busy babe. We have late hours (until 8pm) and our tans last a solid 7 days. We are also MOBILE and are happy to come to you.
