Custom Spray Tanning
Custom Spray Tanning at Lion in the Sun
HOW A SPRAY TAN WORKS:
A Lion in the Sun’s master certified technician will spray the tanning formula onto your skin with a professional system by Norvell, the leader in the sunless industry. The active ingredient is dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which is a simple non-toxic sugar that is often derived from plant sources such as sugar beets or sugar cane. DHA causes a chemical reaction with the amino acids on the outer most layer of your skin. This reaction causes the color of the skin to change, producing a beautiful and natural tan. DHA starts to react with the skin within two hours of application and continues to do so for a total of 18-24 hours. As your dead skin cells are worn away from the surface, your tan will begin to fade.
HOW LONG WILL A SPRAY TAN LAST?
Depending on your skin type, daily activities and post-tan maintenance, spray tans generally last 4-7 days. Using our spray tan maintenance products may give you up to double the amount of days vs not using the right products. Skincare is so important!
HOW TO PREP YOUR SKIN FOR A SPRAY TAN
-Shave at least 8 hours prior to session
-Arrive at your appointnment with skin that is clean and free of lotion, deodorant, perfume, and makeup. An exfoliating mitt is included with your custom spray tan so if you are coming straight from work or school, that’s ok too!
-Wear dark, loose fitting clothing
-Wear sandals if possible
-Waxing should be done at least 24 hours before a spray tan
-Remember for optimal color, wait a minimum of 18-24 hours to shower
-If rain is in the forecast, dress to be fully covered with loose closed toe shoes
If you want to spray tan for any special occasion, we recommend to schedule your appointment 2 days prior to your event.
