About Spray Tans

 I'm pregnant, can I get a spray tan

Though our tanning solution use organic, natural and hypoallergenic ingredients, we still recommend consulting your doctor before the use of any spray tan during your pregnancy. However we can recommend creating a great tan using our sunless gradual tanner.

Does a spray tan protect me from UV rays and sunburn? 

No. No it doesn't! Spray tan solutions do not provide any useful protection against UV rays. We recommend the use of a high quality sunscreen. Your technician can recommend a few spray tan-safe options.

How do I extend the life of my tan?

Your spray tan can be extended through the use of approved products. Incorporating an approved low pH soap and lotion, free of mineral oil, petroleum based products, and alcohol.  You should moisturize your skin at least two times per week, and stay hydrated from the inside out. Soaps such as Dove, Irish Spring, Dial, Oil of Olay, and Caress should be avoided as we find that it dulls your tan. Incorporating a tan extender or gradual tanning lotion, is a good investment as it will further extend the life of your tan. Please note: You should avoid excessive exposure to water and any form of exfoliation during the life of your spray tan.

What should I do after my tan has been applied?

You should avoid water, sweating, exercising, and tight clothing, including a bra.

What should I wear during my tan?

It is recommended that you wear loose and comfortable dark clothing after your spray tanning appointment. Our tanning solution, in most cases, will not stain clothing and any slight rub-off should come out in the wash. However, some staining may occur on some light colored or sensitive fabrics & materials.  

How do I prepare for a spray tan?

We recommend you shower and exfoliate with a body polish and exfoliating gloves. This will ensure the best possible results, by eliminating the dry and dead skin. Your tan will sit on the upper most layer of your skin, so eliminated the layer that will shed in a day or two will prevent premature fading of your tan. It is also recommended that you avoid wearing deodorant, perfume and lotion as it may interfere with the effectiveness of the tanning solution.

How long will my tan last?

Most people can expect their Sunfx tan to last for 5 to 7 days depending upon your skin type and preparation. We have found that our clients who incorporate our recommended low pH soap, daily moisturizer, and gradual tanning lotion will maintain their tan for 2 weeks. 

Are spray tans safe?

Our house solution is made of a unique combination of organic, natural and hypoallergenic ingredients along with highly purified water (aqua) and the natural sugar derived tanning agent, DHA. This combination produces beautiful results. Our product is unique and clients can be assured that it contains no alcohol, oils, perfumes, parabens or artificial preservatives. This is critical to the health of your skin, as these chemicals are drying, causes itching, dry patches, and cracking-appearance of the tanned skin. It's also a bad idea to be inhaling these chemicals during your tanning process. Mint Tan offers protection for the mucous membranes via nose plugs and eye protection, upon request, at no charge should you feel a need to use it.
