Spray Tanning Prep & Tips

  1. Shave and exfoliate with an oil free product the day before.

  2. Shower prior to your spray tan using a water based soap.

  3. Avoid putting on lotions, deodorants or make-up after your shower.

  4. Wear dark loose fitting clothing and flip flops.

  5. Take care of all beauty appointments, before your spray tan appointment, such as hair, nails and waxing.

  6. Tan in a tanning bed before you spray tan, to open up pores and to build a base tan under your spray tan, this is called “Cocktail Tanning” or “Double Dipping”. If you tan or use Red-Light before the spray tan make sure you are using an approved "Double Dipping" lotion.

  7. Hairnet, booties, and Barrier cream lotion are provided in the room but you can purchase upgraded foot protection (included with combo package.)


  1. Choose your Level of Color: Medium or Dark Cartridge (Clear and Fragrance Free).

  2. Customize Each Spray Tan by adding in a single or triple booster and a Scent of your choice. 

  3. Mystic Tan uses MagneTan Technology for even coverage with just two easy poses.

  4. We suggest you wait at least 8-12 hours before showering but you will get the best results if you wait 24 hours.

  5. Mystic Spray Tan will last 4-7 days.


  1. During the recommended wait period avoid using lotions, perfumes or makeup while your spray tan is still processing. It is also best to stay away from activities that make you sweat or you get wet, such as fitness classes and swimming pools.

  2. Wait the recommended time before showering. For your first shower use luke-warm water and wait to use soaps and body wash. Your first shower should be a rinse off shower.

  3. When showering use water based body washes and soaps for longer lasting results. The salon also carries tan extending body washes.

  4.  Avoid going into Swimming Pools, Hot Tubs and the Ocean. Chlorine and Salt water can strip sprays tans.

  5. Moisturize as much as you can after your first shower. The more hydrated your skin is, the longer the spray tan will last. Using a Tan Extender Moisturizer will help your tan last longer and look beautiful.

  • Spray Tans do not prevent burning from the sun. Make sure to use sunscreen when you are in the sun or another option, build a base tan under your spray tan with a tanning bed, try “Cocktail Tanning”.
